“Unprecedented” has become the President’s catchphrase. His addiction to this word is overshadowed only by an intense narcissistic personality disorder, which only serves to fuel his addiction. Everything he does is categorized as “unprecedented”, whether it be his televised “town hall” meetings or the way he butters his bread in the morning. By the way this man talks, one would think he’s the first and only President of the United States.
Despite his fabricated grandeur, the President has become notorious for his rather high profile failures in the Supreme Court recently. In an “unprecedented” display of a lack of professionalism, he verbally assaulted the Supreme Court in his 2010 State of the Union Address. Now he’s reaping the consequences, and the most he can do is continue his hollow blathering and empty threats against the Supreme Court.
Granted, it’s not likely the Supreme Court is tearing his legislation apart because they were insulted by his comments two years ago, but I can’t imagine they’re not giddy with excitement at the prospect of turning the tables on him. Lately, it seems the Court is the only branch of government actually doing its job and basing their decisions on the content of the U.S. Constitution. Meanwhile, Barack Obama can only offer platitudes like “I know it [the Affordable Care Act] will be upheld because it’s constitutional” and “a rejection would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress”.
Perhaps the only unprecedented aspect of this presidency is that we have a man in office who claims to be a “constitutional scholar” but apparently has never studied the document.
Now his administration shows its ignorance in the Arizona v. United States case. Even Sonia Sotomayer, a liberal who still panders to the Democratic party, questioned the reasoning behind bringing a lawsuit against a state trying to enforce the law. The Obama administration’s only defense of such a ridiculous move was that “For each state … to set its own immigration policy in that fashion would wholly subvert Congress’ goal: a single, national approach.”
Right… the single, national approach is to let Mexico invade the United States and win every election in the future for the Democratic party by granting them the illegal right to vote.
Obama and his cronies have ignored the needs of the United States citizens. Instead, they side with the raving lunatics from Mexico who arrived here illegally and pay no taxes. We hear no suggestions from the left that these criminals should “pay their fair share”, and yet we are assaulted with arguments to give them the “right” to protest the policies of a country in which they have no citizenship status.
Is it so crazy that the Supreme Court doesn’t like this lawsuit? Is it really all that difficult to comprehend that a state has every right to aid the Federal government in its duty, with or without their explicit permission? Once again, the liberal agenda is exposed as one that constantly changes the rules to favor its own ends. Forget the means by which they are achieved, because only the results matter.
Thankfully, we have a Supreme Court that is still neither “conservative” nor “liberal”, but one that carefully scrutinizes every case and weighs the ramifications against the U.S. Constitution.
Perhaps the only thing more “unprecedented” than Barack Obama’s addiction to the word is the density of the air between this president’s ears.
