President Barack Obama is laying groundwork to make the majority-conservative Supreme Court a campaign issue this fall, taking a political page from Republicans who have long railed against liberal judges who don't vote their way. The emerging Democratic strategy to paint the court as extreme was little noted in this week's hubbub over Obama's assertion that overturning his health care law would be "unprecedented."
The court also is likely to consider several other issues before the November election that could stir Obama's core Democratic supporters and draw crucial independent voters as well. Among those are immigration, voting rights and a revisit of a campaign finance ruling that Obama has already criticized as an outrage.
While Obama has predicted victory in the health care case now before the court, his administration could blame overreach by Republican-appointed justices if the law is rejected, said Goldstein, who wrote a brief supporting the law's constitutionality. This can be dangerous ground, as Obama discovered. Since Franklin Delano Roosevelt, few presidents have directly assailed the Supreme Court. In Obama's case, he issued an indirect challenge, but the former constitutional law professor tripped over the details.

Oh the obamadrama!
up, drop the fear of EVERYTHING and stop seeking tribal safety in controlled mass-thought commonly calle
This romneybamacare fiasco is a neoconservative Wet dream through and through. Most of you need to man d PROPAGANDA.
Obama is not a marxist or socialist. Obama is not a super scary dictator. He is just a willing corporate puppet with NO REAL POWER or true say in ANY policy making decision. He is a tool, a criminal PR muppet smiling and giving empty populist speeches to distract us from his corporate masters' REAL agenda which is put in motion by BOTH parties as ONE!
Liberals and conservatives are once again divided and conquered by this pathetic bipartisan kabuki play. The politicos are all in this together and it is NOT for the working class' benefit.
If you cant see this at this late point in the "game", then you've got to stop posting immediately, turn off the AM radio and switch your tv channel from Fox News or CNN to something more appropriate. You'll contribute so much more to humanity by focusing on the teletubbies while playing with your mega blocks.
Enough of day after day of parroting stale talking points! Almost eleven years of basically the same wars, blatant crimes plus this inhuman uninterrupted ultra rightwing, fascist agenda destroying our liberties, economy and health.
When will you guys say, ENOUGH?!
