"Don't you DARE overturn it"??

Supreme Court Response should be, "Or WHAT?"

Don't those yahoos know their basics on OUR form of Government? What part of "three EQUAL branches" do they not understand?

It's an embarrassment that any sitting president of the United States would make such a declaration. The Supreme Court is simply doing it's appointed job. They are supposed to rule on the legality of any law passed by the congress. If it is against the constitution, so be it, it's outa here. This supposedly so great Constitutional Scholar, this wonderful Constitutional Law professor should have had a clue that this was unconstitutional. It's sheer arrogance on his part, and we all know he does not lack in that! To think, the president who has nothing to run on, who is running against congress and now he's going to run against the Supreme Court too? What arrogance to stand there and say that any duly passed law MUST stand is just stupidity. This is not Chicago, the Chicago Way will not work here. I guess once a Chicago Thug Politician, always an Chicago Thug Politician. What's the difference between this arm twisting try by the president and what Blago did and got sent to jail for?

more do as I say or i'll get ya ..

threatening the high court I think in the long run will not bode well for barry soetero of indonesia. If the supremes get PO's they can reopen all of orly taitz and sheriff joe's court challenges that soetero is not legally allowed to be prez.

Barry might just have opened the door to the wrong hell there, we can only hope the supremes grow a pair (except for obamas shills he put in there) and give this fake his dictator wannabe walking papers.

Obama should be impeached for threatning SCOTUS and held in contempt.

Excellent points!

Are Obama and his cohorts trying to 'win' their case in the media by giving reasons, arguments as to why it should not be overturned.

One has got to wonder if someone 'leaked' what was happening behind closed doors.

With the statements Obama has made, he is one scary dude living in the White House.

OUT in 2012!

IF overturned, that doesn't mean the judges are 'activists'! They are NOT making a new law, they are overturning Obama's mandate, not their own!

THIS IS THE SECOND TIME OBAMA HAS SLAMMED THE COURT. The first time was in 2010 at his State of the Union speech.

OUT in 2012. Reclaim the Senate, too!
Obama should not be re-elected. That would give him the opportunity to place TWO MORE SUPREME COURT JUSTICES ON THE COURT!

The progressives find judges to overturn the votes of people on issues and they complain about this! And please no bull from the 2000 election. The safety valve that was left(electoral system) and not deleted by the progressives like others did its job.

Perhaps the supremes will recall how he spoke down to them at the state of the union, like they were unruly school children? He's an egotistical arrogant community organizer, in way over his head.

The 4 far left judges on the court know he wasn't talking down to them. He was talking down to the 4 conseratives and the 1 flip flopper.

It amuses how after appointing liberal judges Obama mutates into Mr Strict Constructionist.

Obama MUST lash out at anyone who stands in the way of the Orwellian Dream that is the mission of every aging hippie, fascist elitest, and "calif" variety of democrat who have deteriorated to the point where they self identify as "progressives". Class Warfare, Lawlessness, and Mob Rule are the only hope for the "progressive' bowel movement. It worked for Comrade Lenin and it may work for Comrade Pelosi!

I was actually watching the President when he made these comments about the HCR and the Supreme Court… and I was overjoyed to hear him take such a strong stand for his signature piece accomplishment, and against the court overturning it.
