Lib logic on display

Libs, trying desperately to explain away the president's colossal display of ignorance about the law, have created a laughable template.
They say the Republicans have flipped and now support "judicial activism."
Obama said it would be "unprecedented" for the Supreme Court to overturn Obamacare because it was passed by Congress.
But that's the Supreme Court's job, which has been recognized since 1802 -- even by non-lawyers.
Libs claim conservatives now support activism became they want the law overturned.
But they want it overturned because allowing it to stand would, in effect, expand the powers of Congress so that it could virtually control every American's life.
That clearly is not the intent of the constitution. It was written to limit government, not make it omnipotent.
No Republican has urged the court to make up new law and upholding the constitution is not activism. This is simply another attempt to distract from the issue.

Overturning laws is not new to the Court. Of course, in one case, they decided against Andrew Jackson on the Cherokee removal and his reaction was to do it anyway saying let them send their troops to stop him. No wonder the Cherokee's dont like to use $20 bills in their casinos(with Jackson's picture on it).

Lloyd, I think you're spot on. Jim McClellan pointed me to your blog, and I sure appreciate it. Just wish you were preaching to more than the choir!
