Following the oral arguments before the Supreme Court of the United States concerning Obama care, president Obama sent this shot across the bow of the Justices:
"I'm confident that 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."
Obviously, our judicial branch is taking Obama's words seriously. Appeals Court Judge Jerry Smith was very stern suggesting it wasn't clear whether the president believes that the courts have the right to strike down a federal law. Smith is hearing a different lawsuit against Obamacare by physician-owned hospitals. CBS reports that on Monday, this three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit has in direct response to the president's challenge, ordered the Justice Department to submit a three page paper by Thursday on whether the Obama Administration believes that the courts have the right to strike down a federal law.
For over 200 years the SCOTUS has regularly overturned laws passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress. As a constitutional scholar that he claims to be and his education and teaching credentials indicate, there can only be one explanation for that quote from President Obama. Obama is a purposeful teller of falsehoods.
We'll hear backpedaling and trite explanations, but the foregone conclusion is Obama knowingly told complete falsehood. By simple definition he has quite simply confirmed a fact, he is a liar, and not trustworthy.
