Can we admit that Obama has a really big stick?

Ive found in time the search on this forum was shit but if you google whatever keywords with the word hipinion, you get what you're looking for most of the time. I mean even when they keywords aren't exact.

UPDATE 6 p.m. ET: The White House is declining to comment on the 5th Circuit's order, but the president today did clarify his comments that it would be "unprecedented" for the Court to overturn laws passed by a democratically elected Congress. During a question-and-answer session after a luncheon speech in Washington, a journalist pointed out "that is exactly what the Court has done during its entire existence."

Mr. Obama suggested he meant that it would be "unprecedented" in the modern era for the Court to rule the law exceeded Congress' power to regulate an economic issue like health care.

"The point I was making is that the Supreme Court is the final say on our Constitution and our laws, and all of us have to respect it, but it's precisely because of that extraordinary power that the Court has traditionally exercised significant restraint and deference to our duly elected legislature, our Congress. And so the burden is on those who would overturn a law like this," Mr. Obama said.

"Now, as I said, I expect the Supreme Court actually to recognize that and to abide by well-established precedence out there. I have enormous confidence that in looking at this law, not only is it constitutional, but that the Court is going to exercise its jurisprudence carefully because of the profound power that our Supreme Court has," he said.

I like that when Obama goes a little too far he backs away from it, clarifies what he wished he had said while still making his point, rather than doubling down and trying to create a new fake truth.

It's funny that people are all upset about Obama's statement when the entire GOP field is running on the premise that the courts are illegitimate.

Are you really going to pretend that a string of "what I meant to say" clarifications is silky smooth?

it seems to me that when you've been given lifetime tenure you should be able to deal with some criticism from the president

it's basically just now is not the time to criticize them for being judicial activists because we think they're about to do the judicial activism that we want

Did you all catch this quote from the office of House Speaker and Erik Gloom ally John Boehner?

"I wonder if the White House has polled the phrase 'thinly veiled social Darwinism' - curious to know how that zinger turns the dials... I mean, I'm sure attacks citing 19th century botanists has resonance with some Americans..."
