Dear Bieber (h/t reader DE). I made it halfway through and I need a drink…and I’ve had a already had three. (Party/reception at work.)
The Obama administration stipulated the incontestable to a disgruntled federal court on Thursday, formally declaring that “the power of the courts to review the constitutionality of legislation is beyond dispute.”
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., bowing to an unusual demand of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, in New Orleans, made official the backpedaling of the past few days over remarks by President Obama about the Supreme Court’s coming ruling on the constitutionality of his health care overhaul. Mr. Obama said on Monday that it “would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step” for the court to overturn the law.
Ever since, the White House has been struggling to explain what the president meant.
Obama engages in legitimate criticism of the most partisan SCOTUS in American history. Winger judge gets his panties in a wad over it. That just shows that Obama went over the line of civilitude and seriousness.
