Obama Planning More Campaign Attacks on Supreme Court Conservatives

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.

Now, It is now apparent that Obama doesn't have ONE thing to stand on that he can run for re-election. Other than to Blame everyone else.

What a mental case Obama has turned out to be. Unfortunately for us, this is all going to play out in front of the world while he (Obama) makes yet a bigger ass of himself buy taking on the court.

He can't get anything pasted in Congress-since Obamacare. Which we all know and it has been proven was passed by illegal means and promises.

America. You are fools if you don't march against Obama the best way possible. By marching your butts to the voting booth and kicking his lame butt to the curb.

The sad part is that Congress could do this for us... but they lack balls.

This will certainly energize his mesmerized, robotic, foundation supporters, all 30% of the voters. He'll lose the swing vote, which is most independents. It will also cause staunch conservatives and constitutional constructionists to donate money and time unlike ever before toward defeating what they view as the last president if re-elected. It will be the king from then on.

0bam's arrogance leads him to believe that if the unconstitutional law is truck down, then he can campaign on a "Round 2" platform.

His arrogance will lead to his demise and possibly Americas as well.

Um news flash there Sir. The rights were socialist or worse....

But, please don't listen to common sense get in your way.

Keep at it. Maybe we'll be seeing each other on the streets-supporting one side or another.

Of course, you probably are already there with the 99%ers.

Oh the obamadrama!

This romneybamacare fiasco is a neoconservative Wet dream through and through. Most of you need to man up, drop the fear of EVERYTHING and stop seeking tribal safety in controlled mass-thought commonly called 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?!

I hope this Prez falls, and falls hard.

I voted for this moron in 2008, and have regretted it since. I have changed parties and was hoping for a Ron Paul GOP win, but that is not going to happen. So I will be voting for Romney, since the guy at least knows how to create jobs other then expanding the already overbloated government officials. And is not afraid to fire alot of the morons who leech off our system.

Obama created positions called czars, which are "Unelected" officials who have to answer to know one and can manipulate legislation.

I for one did not think I was voting in a communist pig in 2008. And am sick to my gut when I see people who think he is a messiah of sorts, and want to prop him up as Caesar.

How can you allow a man who allows illegal/undocumented immigrants run amok in our country and wants to give them free schooling, buisness loans, healthcare, etc... and thinks it is a Constitutional Right for those parasites.

If you want to be an American citizen, you must go through the channels like those who went through Ellis Island 100+ years ago.

You said it. ATS should be free of partisan bullcrap talking points, but it isn't. Obama is a figurehead and that is it. Same with all the Republican, or "conservative," presidential candidates. As if there will be a difference between a Republican or Democratic presidency. On the issues that matter, they all vote the same. Obama has thrown out some crumbs, like getting regular troops out of Iraq, but we are still flying drones and killing people in Afghanistan and several other countries we never hear about anymore, like Yemen. We lose our rights with both parties. When will Americans realize they are two sides of the same establishment coin? All these stupid, simplistic labels seem to do is divide the public against each other so the owning and political class can keep their power and wealth at the expense of everyday citizens. There is a reason all your news sources SAY THE EXACT SAME THING! lol I think anyone who still believes in conservative or liberal labels should watch Manufacturing Consent on youtube. It is a lecture by Chomsky. (Anyone who wouldn't listen to him because he subscribes to anarcho-syndacalism/socialism is a brainwashed moron, who is only a parrot for the establishments.) Stop voting for either party and start figuring out how to get regular people elected to office. I am talking about non-partisan, neither identified as conservative or liberal, and intelligent, enlightened everyday citizens that need to be voted into every congressional position. Read up on the populist movement of last century. They faced almost the exact same problems and conditions we are now.

For those doubting the type of atmosphere both parties have set through actual, REAL policy, more than rhetoric, here are some Mussolini quotes.

Benito mussolini, father of Fascism said:

-"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power."

-"Fascism, the more it considers and observes the future and the development of humanity, quite apart from political considerations of the moment, believes neither in the possibility nor the utility of perpetual peace. "

-"Socialism is a fraud, a comedy, a phantom, a blackmail. "

-"We become strong, I feel, when we have no friends upon whom to lean, or to look to for moral guidance."

-"State ownership! It leads only to absurd and monstrous conclusions; state ownership means state monopoly, concentrated in the hands of one party and its adherents, and that state brings only ruin and bankruptcy to all.”


Recognize the neoconservative/neoliberal message?

It is time to finally admit the US is a fascist, police state TODAY.

As fascism, paraphrasing Trotsky, is capitalism in decadence, let's read from someone more contemporary.

A couple of Noam Chomsky quotes:

-"The "corporatization of America" during the past century has been an attack on democracy—and on markets, part of the shift from something resembling "capitalism" to the highly administered markets of the modern state/corporate era. A current variant is called "minimizing the state," that is, transferring decision-making power from the public arena to somewhere else: "to the people" in the rhetoric of power; to private tyrannies, in the real world."

"...capitalism is basically a system where everything is for sale, and the more money you have, the more you can get. And, in particular, that's true of freedom. Freedom is one of the commodities that is for sale, and if you are affluent, you can have a lot of it. It shows up in all sorts of ways. It shows up if you get in trouble with the law, let's say, or in any aspect of life it shows up. And for that reason it makes a lot of sense, if you accept capitalist system, to try to accumulate property, not just because you want material welfare, but because that guarantees your freedom, it makes it possible for you to amass that commodity. [...] what you're going to find is that the defense of free institutions will largely be in the hands of those who benefit from them, namely the wealthy, and the powerful. They can purchase that commodity and, therefore, they want those institutions to exist, like free press, and all that."

What we have in the US is control of the populace by FEAR MONGERING. Socialism is just the classic boogieman used as a tool to make the populace embrace the pyramid scheme that is unrestrained capitalism AKA fascism.

Stop being frightened by the loud talking heads in the corporate media and do your own unbiased research.

Keep an open mind and awaken from the lies we have been bombarded with since childhood.

Over time the Obamacare has only become more unpopular, not less so. If Obama keeps playing the blame game, especially when he's trying to defend something that's hemorrhaging positive public opinion, he's gonna drop like the fly that he is.

Then again, I was positive after he won in '08 that he was going to play the same game next time around, I just didn't know that some many people were going to wake up.

If OBAMA would STOP this unconstitutional BS ,he would be ok. ,, I dont like him MAKING anyone carry Obamacare, if it was OPTIONAL then fine, but NO he wants to MAKE US BUY IT...and 2 GAY people i know like him, the others like Ron Paul because I played them videos of Paul saying "to each his own,everyone deserves to be able to marry", even though Obama has no clear issue on gay marriage, he is "evolving", and maybe he did let gays serve in the military without hassle,,but people are still going to jail for non violent drug crimes. Obama definately doesnt care about our freedom, even though he comments on fairness, I dont see it in the laws. Obama is not even for legal medicinal herbs.

You're right...let's just keep letting people get healthcare that should be paying into the system but will end up not doing it because they refuse to buy insurance because it's their right....increasing my premiums and costs for being responsible...and anyone else who does the same.

What's the other options folks?

Do you have one? I bet you don't....because most of you are nothing but blowhards that will complain no matter what happens regardless.
