Why the hell not? it’s supposed to be “Transparent” and “Legal”

White House Urges Supreme Court Not to Jump Into Health Care Law Cases Prematurely

The Obama administration told the Supreme Court on Monday night it should stay away from a high-profile challenge to the 2010 health care law until after a lower court has had a chance to review the case.

Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal wrote, “there is no basis for short-circuiting the normal course of appellate review.” Katyal also says Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s case is problematic because he may lack sufficient standing to challenge the health care law.

The Supreme Court normally takes cases only after they’ve been reviewed at least once by appellate judges. Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says that’s not appropriate in this instance.

In his filing last month, Cuccinelli said there’s a “palpable consensus” that the high court will ultimately have to pass judgment on the merits of President Obama’s health care law and should do so without delay. Furthermore, Cuccinelli argues that his case involves “pure issues of constitutional law” that appellate judges on the Fourth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals will be unable to definitively resolve.

This is another one of those “Trust me” moments that the liberal leaders are so inclined to use. “You don’t need to worry, you don’t need to understand, you don’t need to see what’s behind the curtain, just trust me I know what’s best for you”….

Obamacare is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Obama knows it, His idiots in his cabinet know this, and he knows if it goes to SCOTUS NOW it’s gets shot down. He also knows his entire presidency is tied to this disaster of legislation and if it gets shot down at the highest level, he loses all credibility even from his lackies….

 

McCain and Palin’s court is what we need.

The liberal nutbags are all in a twitter, they are worried about Sarah Palin’s impact on the McCain’s ticket. I stumbled across this at the Huffington (Too stupid for words) Post:

McCain’s Court: Change We Don’t Need

There has been much debate about whether Sen. John McCain is a candidate of change. But in one area, McCain is unquestionably a reformer. He would almost certainly make fundamental changes in the direction of the U.S. Supreme Court.

McCain has said that, should he be president, Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito “would serve as the model for my own nominees.” He regularly attacks what he calls “activist judging,” and he described a recent ruling vindicating the right to habeas corpus as “one of the worst decisions in the history of this country.” McCain has repeatedly said that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided and should be overruled.

If McCain is elected, change would clearly be coming to the U.S. Supreme Court. And in constitutional law, the Republican presidential nominee is anything but conservative. Once skeptical of the idea that the court should overrule Roe v. Wade, he now invokes the clichés and code words of the extreme right. His votes have matched his words, for he has been a proud and enthusiastic supporter of President George W. Bush’s most extreme appointees to the courts of appeals.

Recently McCain complained of “the common and systematic abuse of our federal courts by the people we entrust with judicial power. For decades now, some federal judges have taken it upon themselves to pronounce and rule on matters that were never intended to be heard in courts or decided by judges.”

In his view, the “system of checks and balances rarely disappoints,” but “there is one great exception in our day”: the Supreme Court. McCain aims to eliminate that exception. It is more than mere speculation to suggest that with judicial appointments, McCain may well follow the extreme right-wing of his party.

The court is already dominated by Republican appointees, and in the last 20 years, it has shifted dramatically to the right. The next president is expected to be able to appoint at least one — and possibly as many as three — new members. Even a single appointment would likely shift constitutional law in major ways.

The right to choose remains sharply contested within the Supreme Court — and the Republican Party and the pro-life movement have long sought to eliminate that right. The McCain-Palin ticket plans first to “return the abortion question to the individual states” and then “to end abortion at the state level.”

This is the real deal guys, the most idiotic liberal trash like Hufpo readers even see it. They know why this election is so important, it is truly a matter of life and death.

I want the next SCOTUS judges to be more to the RIGHT than the ones departing. The robe wearing elitists that will be leaving have RUINED our nation, they have been responsible for GENOCIDE, they have been responsible for the moral compass of our nation dropping below the gutter level.

IF the HUFPO Readers see the real issue why is it so hard for US on the right side of the aisle to see it? Vote McCain/Palin if for no other reason than to see if Ruth Bader Ginsberg can hang on another 4 years so her seat is filled by someone as liberal as she is.

We need a hard RIGHT turn from the SCOTUS, this court has left the reservation on several issues and it has made the “Thug life” easier, Enemies of America stronger, and killing the innocent seem normal.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT PICTURE?

There is no guarantee that McCain will pick a solid Conservative judge, but he sure as hell won’t pick a Ruth Bader Ginsberg type libtard.
