This article I found over at the Washington Post’s website This next election will be decided based upon Obama’s ability to keep everyone distracted on manufactured news and events long enough for enough dead people and illegals to vote. The only election Obama has ever lost was the one where he didn’t effectively lie and dissemble and slander his opponent. Even he understands that winning an election doesn’t require integrity, leadership skills or good ideas…in fact you might say that he understands this better than anyone else in the country.

Now, everybody just hold on a minute: Rein it on in, people.
Of course President Obama knows that the Supreme Court’s chief function is to decide, disinterestedly, whether a law adheres to the U.S. Constitution. He was, after all, a constitutional law professor at the University of Chicago and is — to hear the liberal intelligentsia tell it — the smartest man since Albert Einstein.
And of course Mr. Obama knows full well that the high court has done just that since Marbury v. Madison in 1803, when the court asserted its authority of judicial review spelled out by the Founding Fathers under Article III of the Constitution.
So everyone needs to take pause when The One says something like he did this week about his precious health care mandate: “Ultimately, 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. And I’d just remind conservative commentators that for years what we’ve heard is, the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint — that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law. Well, this is a good example. And I’m pretty confident that this Court will recognize that and not take that step.”
Now, Mr. Obama certainly knows that the words that flowed from his rhetorical lips were completely false. Striking a law of Congress is not unprecedented, and not even particularly extraordinary: The court’s struck down more than 150 federal laws since its inception, not to mention overturning hundreds of state and local laws.
