Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, July 19, 2014

Jeff Shesol, The New Yorker: [T]he right is having it both ways when it comes to the courts. Attacks on excessive litigation notwithstanding, conservatives are doing exactly what they say the left has long done: rushing to litigate political questions, elevating all manner of disputes to the level of high constitutional principle, and asking judges to settle (or revisit) policy arguments that ought to be resolved by legislators or voters. If the Affordable Care Act can't be repealed, despite dozens of attempts, it can be undercut by judges, as in the Supreme Court ruling in the Hobby Lobby case. If the National Labor Relations Board can't be shut down, the Presidential power to make recess appointments -- which has kept the agency running -- can be curbed, possibly for good, as last month's Noel Canning decision portends. And if Obama can't be impeached, well, he can be sued.

Now that the Supreme Dorks are 5-4, what did you expect?
Weepy Boehner is about to get what every House speaker has wanted for two centuries: a friendly Supreme Court decision on what a president can order.
Obama has been a Godsend for conservatives.

When you've got the N word in the White House you've got to pull out all the stops.
