Perhaps he’s correct if he’s solely considering his base, liberal Democrat drones, who believed his hopey/changey mantra was spoken in honesty. (pardon my laughter).
Of course, Obama was trying to “intimidate” the Court. He understand that these are people and like all people, rather not be reviled and criticized for decisions. people. And being people they most likely would like to be thought of in a good light and not smeared for their decisions, which Obama and the Dems will definitely do if they uphold the Constitution, by throwing out this piece of government grab boondoggle. Little Barack was sending them a message: do my bidding and wrath will ensure.
I think he made a major mistake in believing he could intimidate some of these Justices – conservatives won’t take kindly to this petty, unprofessional Chicago thug style tactic. Maybe Ginsberg and the two Obama appointees would, but they’ll likely be eager to do Obama’s Marxist bidding in any case.
