The Corner

Obama, the Court, and Primo Carnera

No surprise that the president, in the wake of last week’s epic disaster in the Supreme Court, has come right out of the blocks to launch a pre-emptive strike on the Court.

“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,” Obama said.

“I’m confident that this will be upheld because it should be upheld,” Obama said, describing the law as “constitutional.”

“A temporary majority that saw an opening and used every parliamentary trick, kickback and bribe in the book to sneak this one through,” is more like it, but let that pass for now. Obama’s remark is the kind of bullying tactic we’ve come to expect from him — the only way he knows how to react to any real or potential discomfiture.

And that’s because this is a man who has never heard the word “no.”  All along his glide path to power, as he was handed off from one enabler to another, he’s been told he’s the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being anyone has ever known, and he erupts in petulant frustration when reality intrudes upon his narcissistic fantasy.
