Bid to defuse? The AG's office was ordered by that court to explain Obama's position after making what sounded like dismissal of the Supreme Courts constitutional duties.

HE DOES NOT MEAN THAT---WHAT YOU SAID,'dismissal of the Supreme Courts constitutional duties.'

Diffuse--Obama wants to tone down, as feeing guilty what he started this health care business , as being controversial.

JBH,

Dismissal, "that, uhhh, an uninelected, uhhh, group of — of people would somehow overturn, uhhh, a duly constituted and — and passed, uh, law."

Defuse? the judge ordered the AG's office to submit a 3 page single space explanation of the WH's position. Like writing on the blackboard 100 times, for a child.

He was trying to play politics and didn't do a very good job, not unusual for him or many other politicians. He is starting to let his ego over ride his abilities, he is not a very good impromptu speaker. Hence the reason for Justice being called on the carpet.

As soon as you get your head out, call Obama and ask him why it took him 29 games of his 63 rounds in 2009 before he ask ONE women to join his treasured foursome. Second call me when Obama stands in front of the HEALTH CLUBS "JUST FOR WOMEN" AND PROTEST THEIR SEGREGATION OF MEN.

How does one become a "constitutional lawyer" without understanding the separation of powers among the executive, legislative and judicial branches? Where did Obama get the idea that every law passed by Congress is "presumptively constitutional?" If this were the case, I'm sure we would see even more shenanigans in Washington than we've already had quite enough of. With such questionable background in government and politics, how did Obama earn a law degree from HARVARD? The crown jewel of the American educational system is being revealed as a fraud.

"From my own experience visiting the troops in the Middle East, I can tell you this, though: despite how the conflict has been portrayed by our glorious media, if you gave any U.S. soldier a gun with two bullets in it, and he found himself in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Osama bin Laden, there's a good chance that Nancy Pelosi would get shot twice, and Harry Reid and bin Laden would be strangled to death."

I guess having our first Affirmative Action president just didn't work out as good as the libs hoped it would. Maybe next time, if the US survives this first time.

The White House Boys’ Club: President Obama Has a Woman Problem


By Amy Sullivan
September 21, 2011


Nearly every professional woman has had the experience of saying something in a meeting, receiving no response, and then listening as a male colleague offers the same thought or suggestion minutes later to great acclaim. The first time it happens, she feels slightly foolish and is a little unsettled. Did I say that out loud or just in my head? Maybe he made the point better than I did. The second time it happens, she gets frustrated. The third time, she gets angry.

Look at the senior women meeting with Obama in this White House photo at a dinner they called to discuss their invisibility. Look at their faces and body language. They are pissed off.

Coverage in the Washington Post and a new book by Ron Suskind has focused attention on the frustration of Obama’s female advisers. But the problem has been obvious almost since Obama took office. And while the explanations so far have blamed members of the mostly-departed boys club–Robert Gibbs, Rahm Emanuel–Obama himself is responsible for a work atmosphere that marginalizes and ignores women.

Obama = PIG.

That old Regan appointed partisan hack is now a laughing stock of the sane members of the bar. And now that that crazu old barsard is on Druggie Limpball's team: "The American people love the concept of a team. You have to have the right people on the team, but we are a team here. There is a team that’s opposing this president, and attempting to make him a one-termer this November at the ballot box. It’s great to have this response." Limpballs, 4-5

"The court’s order was highly inappropriate, and Rush’s comments are an excellent example of why. Whatever the judges were thinking, their order was inevitably going to be interpreted as the product of three conservative judges trying to enter the political fray and take on a Democratic President.”- Orin Kerr, a former constitutional advisor to ideologue Sen. John Cornyn (Reich-wing-TX)

Elena Kagen certainly proved she's a Partisan Hack by refusing to recuse herself from this case since SHE WORKED ON IT WHILE working in the obama WH.

Yeah it was going so good. The DOJ stated the courts did have the authority to decide the issue and then to appease the Obama's frail ego. They added "consistent with the President's remarks" at the end -WRONG.

Man up Obama, stop forcing your staff to look like fools -you made a mistake. Admit it
