The Circus is Coming
In the traveling circus which constitutes Obama’s view of the world and his understanding of American values, he declared in a recent speech that it was unprecedented that the ‘unelected’ Supreme Court would declare as unconstitutional, a duly constituted law (referring to his healthcare fiasco). Anyone who has actually grown up in America would never make such an idiotic claim. We all learned in elementary school of the Founders intent and of the precedent set by Marbury v. Madison. But in the President’s defense, he did not grow up in America. What of America’s history and jurisprudence might a poor boy, who grew up in the Madrasas of Jakarta, learn of these things? Precious little it seems.
But considering that Mr. Obama is alleged to have received a very expensive education at Harvard law school (we have no idea who paid for this) where he was president of the Harvard Law Review, you would think some knowledge of these things might have been picked up. Whoever paid for this education is due a refund. Additionally, Obama lectured at the University of Chicago Law School on Constitutional law. Surely these people are also due a refund.
As a President who has actually appointed justices to the Supreme Court, it is difficult to understand his surprise that they are “unelected.” I think perhaps he would like the word Supreme to be included in his title too; something like ‘Supreme Leader.’ I offer, as a better example of the term unprecedented, the fact that the Senate has not considered a budget in over a thousand days (more than three years for our math challenged Democrat friends).
I doubt Obama believed a word of what he said; I know I seldom do. Obviously he is depending on the stellar work done by the lefties in the NEA (National Education Association aka “Teachers Union”) to have sufficiently dumbed-down the American populace so that he can get by with saying these things. Apparently a lot of Americans these days have no understanding of the country in which they live. What a pain we old people must be to him. It is no wonder that he designed Obama Care to get rid of us.
A rare treat was thrust upon the smoldering nuclear landscape that is the election year of 2012 by Justice Jerry Smith, a Texan on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. In an act reminiscent of Sister Mary Francis telling me to write 100 times “I will not talk in class,” Justice Smith directed the Justice Department, under Eric Holder, to write a three page theme, single spaced (this Justice may know Sister Mary Francis personally) on their understanding of the precedent of, ‘Judicial Review.’ Ummm, Obama got in trouble.
Interestingly, the response signed by Eric Holder himself and turned in on time, was somewhat nuanced and not exactly what the Justice had asked for, but I expect that the court will accept it. I know that if any one of the 100 “I will not talk in class” lines deviated in any way, Sister Mary Francis would have had me skewered and roasted slowly over the fires of hell, but I suspect the court may be more lenient than this. Obama sure is lucky.
Regardless, in this exercise, for anyone who cared to observe it, much was revealed about this administration. For those who prefer to stick their head in the sand, it will be our responsibility to point out the facts and speak of their relevance especially as they apply to the upcoming election. This editorial is just the beginning. Feel free to pass it on. Add to it if you wish, but we need to get the word out. This is not the year to sit on the sidelines and let others do the work.
