    The simple minded “majority” are the ones who should be in the corner.

    I agree, since judging by the last election the majority seems to sadly be the liberals. The Obamanation being a dunce, however, is certainly no secret, as he broadcasts it through his words and actions every chance he gets.

    Clarence Thomas writes an opinion concurring with that of constitutional scholar Scalia: “Yeah. What he said.”

    Before y’all go off on the 5-4 simple majority bit, please realize that there have been an unprecedented number of 9-0 rulings against Obama.
    The Recess appointment ruling, for example: 9-0.

    @Nos Nevets

    Funny thing about the Recess Appointment ruling…
    The Senate amended their rules so that Appointments can’t be filibustered, eliminating the NEED to bypass them to get somebody, ANYBODY, into the empty position.

    And all the SC actually said was that despite the fact that none of the CongressCritters were showing up to work, they weren’t OFFICIALLY on a recess.

    Oh, No! Obama is embarrassed again in Lisa Land, this time while trying to uphold the separation of Church and State! When WILL Obama ever learn that the Five Catholic Supremes trump his poor, traditional understanding of the Constitution? Absurd! How CAN he be so boldly impartial?

    In its glorious past, the SCOTUS has reversed itself on several occasions. Even they admit to making occasional errors in judgement.

    “Roberts has a weak heart, and Scalia is getting old; another reason to elect President Hillary and her appointment power.”

    Better yet, the Democrats could try running someone I’d be remotely tempted to vote for. As long as there’s a liberal 3rd party candidate, I will never vote for Hillary.

    For those of you inclined to complain that the SCOTUS is partisan. I encourage you to listen to Supreme Podcast which gives an in-depth review of their decisions. I don’t always agree with their decisions but I have developed a comfort with their process and the framework under which they render decisions.

    I agree with some of the Posters above that several 9-0 decisions dispel the idea that they are just playing politics.

    Obama claims to be a Constitutional Scholar and his supporters are quick to remind us of that fact. That doesn’t make him King or Dictator. It means he should have a good understanding of how the Constitution is interpreted by the SCOTUS and be able to craft approaches that are within the markers laid out.

    @Nebulous – Because nobody brought it to the Supreme Court’s attention.

    Perhaps you don’t understand how this works. When government acts in a way that makes people feel that their rights have been violated – It is upon THEM to take it to court and it must work it’s way through District and Appeals courts before it reaches the Supreme Court (Under most circumstances).

    The Supreme Court doesn’t go looking for problems to address – The problems come to them.

    Had the Democrats felt that their rights had been trod upon they could have very easily brought it to court.

    But usually, Democrats like the decisions made by government because it gives them more control over peoples lives and not less (Very seldom does any branch of the Government limit itself – only the Courts do that).

    The way people wildly attack this administration is un-American. Don’t hate Obama then you do hate America? Where do people come up with such convoluted reasoning?

    Correct you never implied one should hate you merely stated that “those same people seem to hate America…”. I don’t hate America, in fact I don’t recall ever meeting someone who does.

    Beg your pardon?SCOTUS has POTUS in the corner? How so? For what? Just because? What part of Constitutional law has POTUS failed to uphold? I was looking for a word to describe today’s comic. The nicest one I can think of is ‘stupid’. I don’t know, maybe I’m the stupid one, since I don’t get it. But I don’t think so.

    Right, a policy put in place by the Democratic Senate, during the Bush administration. The difference in these situations is that Bush (as much as it pains me to give him any credit) didn’t attempt to make appointments when the Senate Democrats were holding the Pro Forma sessions. Obama, on the other hand, decided that he could and did make appointments when the Republicans were holding pro forma sessions. The Supreme Court correctly ruled that only Congress could determine when either House or Senate is in session, not the President.
