One of the highly developed talents of President Barack Obama is the ability to say things that are demonstrably false, and make them sound not only plausible but inspiring.
That talent was displayed just this week when he was asked whether he thought the Supreme Court would uphold ObamaCare as constitutional or strike it down as unconstitutional.
He replied: "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."
But how unprecedented would it actually be if the Supreme Court declared a law unconstitutional if it was passed by "a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress"?
The Supreme Court has been doing precisely that for 209 years!
Wow. The arrogance of this President continues to amaze me. He can stand up there, on TV, in front of millions of people..... and lie. And make it look so believable! Well, at least to those that elected him anyway.
If Obama was talking to me outside, on a bright, sunny, cloudless day, and told me the sky was blue..... I'd have to glance up to make sure.
