There is something to be said of about a man who has the ability to stand in front of a bank of cameras and microphones, and unabashedly rewrite historical fact to the point of tortured dishonesty with the ease of a person strolling through the park on a lazy Sunday afternoon. This man has missed his calling, he should have been an actor. He would have been great at it. His views would have been 100% in sync with the Hollywierd crowd. Even his pathological narcissism would have been a benefit to himself and the rest of man kind as we yearned for a higher quality of entertainment than what the aforementioned Hollywierd crowd has been producing of late. As it stands though, in his current position, the man is an unmitigated disaster. What’s worse, on the very short list of his supposed strengths, he has proven to be, for lack of a more diplomatic phrase, wanting. Such is the problem with nominating a man with, again diplomatically, a paper thin resume. His very few positives will later stand out even more than usual, since there isn’t much else to talk about. In the case of Barack Obama, we were told that the man is a, “Constitutional Scholar.” To that I say the following:
Yesterday, President Obama, our, “Constitutional Scholar,” rewrote history and redefined our Constitution so that he could further redefine judicial activism, all in an effort to cajole the Supreme Court on its upcoming decision on his signature piece of thuggish Executive Branch over reach. Here is the money quote from the joint press conference he held yesterday with the leaders of two of our neighbors who are the latest victims of Obama’s Smart Diplomacy, (another issue to be discussed in further detail.)
Ultimately, I am confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress
Putting aside just for the moment that this was not passed by a strong majority, but by the thinnest of margins in the House, where there were no fewer than 34 defectors from the President’s own party, there was also not one single vote from the opposition Party in the House. It should also be noted that in the Senate, after the people of Massachusetts sent a Republican to the Senate for the first time since God knows when, based solely on his promise to vote against this Bill, it took massive legislative chicanery utilizing budget reconciliation to pass the Bill there. The American People hated it then, at least 65% of us did, and it is even less popular today as many are finding out what is in it. Now let’s turn our attention to unprecedented steps. The Supreme Court has struck down 53 laws between the years of 1981 and 2011. Judicial Activism is defined as the court creating new law in its decisions where none had previously existed before. It is not defined as the court noticing that a law passed by Legislators and signed by the Executive is in direct contravention of the documents founding this nation. The Constitution is not a living breathing document that can be manipulated to the whims of who ever wishes to create massive authority for themselves. It is the supreme law of our land and it was intended to place limitations upon those who would seek to govern us.
This Law was passed by using the very worst of political tricks. Outright bribery was used to buy votes from Senators in Nebraska, South Dakota, Louisiana, New Jersey, Ohio, California, and more. It was the height of Chicago style thuggery, and not at all the promised hopety change that would give us a Washington that aspired to some higher standard of conduct. Now, to add insult to injury, we have all found out some of the things in it that we were promised prior to its passage we would learn. One of those things is the gift of free condoms for all who want to engage in consequence free sex. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for promiscuity without consequence. I just don’t see why I should pay for someone else to have the good time. Without having that debate however, there is a more pressing question. How is it possible to mass produce all of those condoms without the usage of oil? Has anyone from the Obama Administration contacted the good people of Church and Dwight Co. Inc., (the makers of the fine Trojan Brand,) to determine if it is possible to make their fine contraceptive products, which President Obama has now decreed to be a basic human right, without using oil? How on Earth will we reconcile the Earth Spirit’s right to keep her oil to herself and the basic human right to what purportedly, (at least according to Sandra Fluke,) will be a massive need for condoms made of rubber?
All joking aside, that this man was sold to us as a Constitutional Scholar tells us more about the Main Stream Media than we ever needed to know. That he has been called that even recently is simply astounding. The blogoshpere was sent into a tizzy yesterday when he made this statement. Even the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals took notice and used the opportunity to beat up on one of the Government’s Lawyers, demanding a three page brief on the Administration’s position on judicial review. Many people have posited the belief that Justice Kagan, Obama’s former Solicitor General, leaked to the President the results of the early voting on his signature thuggish over reach. Yesterday’s foray into uncharted territory in attempted bullying was a ploy designed to cause Justice Kennedy to change his mind with 90 full days left prior to the decision being announced. I personally believe that it was nothing more than a little boy afflicted with pathological narcissistic disorder throwing his usual temper tantrum at the prospect that someone would have the temerity to notice that he is the least qualified person in any room that he enters.
