Obama’s Solicitor General Is an Idiot

No, I am not trying to be insulting. I’m not trying to be edgy, or just call him stupid because I disagree with his ideas. I seriously wonder if the man has greater than a 60 IQ.

Today, President Barack Obama’s (D-USA) supreme “achievement”, ObamaCare, goes before the Supreme Court of the United States.

Neal Katyal, acting US Solicitor General, the man who has been in charge of ObamaCare’s defense,  had this to say in an interview with AFP.

The challengers are saying that this law is unconstitutional, which means even if 95 percent of Americans want this law, they can't have it. And that's a really profound thing for an unelected court to say.

First, the 95%  number is ridiculous. Every single poll shows support for the law at less than 50%. But even if it were accurate, does the man not understand the U.S. Constitution at all? There are approximately 300,000,000 people in the United States. It doesn’t matter if 285,000,000 (95%), or even 297,000,000 (99%), or even 299,700,00 (99.9%), or hell, even 299,970,000 (99.99%) of them want a law. If it is found to violate the U.S. Constitution, they can’t have it. Period. If it’s got that kind of support, though, passing an Amendment to the Constitution should be trivial. Of course, ObamaCare doesn’t have that kind of support, and hopefully he knows that. Although based upon the rest of his statement, I’m unconvinced that he’s even aware that the sun rises in the east, so I wouldn’t bet the farm on it.

Also, several times in the interview he makes the point that the Supreme Court is an “unelected court”. He clearly does not hold these nine Justices or their Court in high regard. Just as clearly, he does not see them as a rightful co-equal branch of government, but merely as a group trying to exceed their authority. From my understanding, he will not be the one making arguments today. That he did so in the lower courts. However, if his attitude is indicative of those who will make the arguments before the court, then they should be prepared for a serious smackdown from all nine Justices, even those that may support the rest of their defense.

Someone get this man a tiddlywinks game. He’s clearly incapable of anything more advanced.
