I always knew Barack Obama was arrogant. This man actually believes a lot of that “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for” nonsense. To add to his past dossier of arrogance now we can add this administration’s propensity for ignoring Federal court rulings.
Remember the Gulf oil drilling moratorium Mr. Obama insisted was direly needed? A Federal court ruled the moratorium was unconstitutional. Then Mr. Obama almost immediately re-instituted a new moratorium and has the bureaucracy drag their feet in the approving and issuing of permits for drilling. That’s arrogance right there friends. That’s a blatant flouting of the lawful ruling of a US Federal court. Is that not a “high crime or misdemeanor?” If it’s not it damn sure should be! A judge has already ruled the administration is in contempt of court for it’s actions on this issue.
To add another generous helping of “I am Obama the Great and Impervious to Mortal Law,” now he is flouting the ruling of the Federal judge last week that declared Obamacare to be “unconstitutional.” Am I missing something here because as far as I can discern the administration has not suspend its implementation scheme. Is it necessary for the court to order a “cease and desist” order? By the judge’s ruling, as law and precedent have typically been applied, the judge’s ruling is at this moment the “law of the land.” That means until an appellate court issues a different ruling, or until SCOTUS rules, this is the “law of the land.”
I believe the words of DOJ spokesperson Tracy Schmaler “We are analyzing this opinion to determine what steps, if any — including seeking a stay — are necessary while the appeal is pending…” indicate the administration knows the judge’s ruling of “unconstitutional” is binding and that within the ruling is an order for the government to cease and desist. Therefore then by the administration NOT abiding by the court’s ruling Obama is clearly in contempt of court – AGAIN! Is that not the quintessential example thereof?
