Can Obama Ignore the Courts?
That's what 43% of DEMOCRATS seem to think (That's a large percent of FEMALE voters—aren't they the ones that got this fool elected?). They completely ignore the fact that the courts are FULLY EQUAL to the president in this government. Congress passes laws, the president signs them into law and enforces them, and the COURTS decided their CONSTITUTIONALITY. That means if the COURTS find them UNCONSTITUTIONAL, he CANNOT ENFORCE THEM. Thinking he can ignore the courts is FOLLY. He CANNOT legally ignore the courts, though he has been doing it since he was elected, and NOBODY has seen fit to DO anything about it. And until they do, he gets away with it. Somewhere, down the line, somebody will “take him to task” for his ignoring of the courts. It's too bad there's no provision in the Constitution to PUNISH a president (or anyone else, for that matter) for violating it's precepts, beyond reversing any action he/she takes based on ignoring the Constitution. It could be that ALL he has accomplished by ignoring the Constitution can be REVERSED. To quote the Constitution, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people” Obama does NOT have the authority to ignore the courts, period. Maybe if he does that, he can be found in contempt of court. (Godfather Politics)
