    Some advisors counseled caution, but the president opted to criticize the conservative justices in the uncomfortable spotlight of national television as Senate Democrats roared their approval.

    Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. is still angered by what he saw as a highly partisan insult to the independent judiciary. The incident put a public spotlight on the deep divide between the Obama White House and the Roberts court, one that could have a profound effect in the years ahead.

    As Alice said after going down the rabbit hole. This just keeps getting curiouser and curiouser! Next thing you know he'll (nObabma) try and issue an executive order to overturn the SCOTUS decisions. Won't that be a corker?

    At that point POtUS would be a domestic enemy of the constitution many of us have sworn to uphold.

    The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us....There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! ...The war is inevitable–and let it come! I repeat it, Sir, let it come …………. PATRICK HENRY speech 1776

    SCOTUS exists to ensure the rights reserved to the government, the states, and ourselves, remain largely intact.

    If President Obama want's to violate his oath of office by decrying a SCOTUS decision affirming our Constitutional rights, thereby simultaneously refusing to support and defend our Constitution, then impeachment becomes paramount, as he would no longer be fit to continue to serve as our President.

    In fact, as his remarks against the SCOTUS decision are clearly out of order given SCOTUS' adherence to our Constitution, I sincerely hope people are keeping a long list for use at a potential impeachment hearing.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.
