WTF?

That ranks up there as one of the dumber quotes I have heard from a politician.

I guess the Korematsu decision was in the right then?

Thats just one of the quotes... Waiting to find exact quotes for the others..


Also said something about scrapping the mandate and how it wouldn't work and it wasn't a financial thing but a human thing.

Color me shocked!

Given what his aides and spokespeople were saying, it was only a matter of time before he joined the chorus. However, someone is going to have to explain to me how this is going to be a legitimate campaign message with the large dislike for Obamacare to begin with.

quote:

"Unelected members shouldn't overturn HC Law"

Interesting. Guess it's ok for an unelected group of people (IPAB) to make decisions and cuts regarding Medicare though?

Trying to find it right now... I literally just happened at the presser with heads of Mexico and Canada.

Vaguely heard it and then the news turned around and put the quotes at the bottom.

By that same logic Brown v. Board of Education, Roe v. Wade, Griswold v. Connecticut, Lawrence v. Texas, and a lot of other popular liberal decisions were wrong.

That HAS to be a misquote.

quote:

Obama warned against judicial activism, which he says Republicans have long decried, in which “an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law.”

Beyond the judicial aspect, the president defended the individual mandate specifically, saying there’s a “human element” to the law, and that it’s the only way to provide healthcare to those with pre-existing conditions.

The president argued that “Americans all across the country are getting preventative care because of this law,” and that “doesn’t count the 30 million people who stand to gain coverage” in 2014

quote:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: So there is not only an economic element and a legal element to this, but there is a human element to this, and I hope that is not forgotten in this political debate.

Ultimately, I am confident the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a Democratically-elected Congress.
I just remind conservative commentators that for years we have heard the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint. That an unelected group of people would somehow return or overturn a duly constituted and passed law. Here’s a pretty good example. Well, I am confident that this court will recognize that and not take that step.

As I said, we are confident this will be over, this will be upheld. As I said, we are confident this will be upheld because it should be upheld. Again, that’s not just my opinion. That’s the opinion of a whole lot of constitutional law professors and academics and judges and lawyers who have examined this law, even if they’re not particularly sympathetic to this particular piece of legislation or my presidency.

Well if Academia says it's ok...

Like the analysts have been saying... The dems are going to start saying its judicial activism.

Now the President has jumped into it... Expect that to be a campaign slogan this fall.

The full quote is not bad. Color me stunned. Someone here took a quote out of context, slightly misquoted him, and then others quoted this misquote and we were off to the races...
