48 hours after President Obama gave the Supreme Court would appear to be a warning to not overturn -- health care law attorney general Eric Holder now weighed in on what the president meant.
I think that you know what the president said.
A couple of days ago was appropriate -- he indicated that.
We obviously respect decisions that the -- make under our system.
Government and since Marbury vs Madison and it's back and eighteen.
Courts have final say on the constitutionality.
It's nice if he would say that although it didn't sound like his president felt that way.
But today at 1 PM the attorney general must answer for the president again and -- a three page letter single space to a federal appeals court the fifth.
So what will be attorney general say Fox News legal analyst Peter John boy -- Has some ideas well.
I think he's going to do it it's going to be a full throated -- defense they have the power of the Supreme Court and beat I think it's also gonna point out.
The problems inherent.
With the Supreme Court oversight.
So it in essence is going to be a political document and in many ways it's gonna be a manifesto for the 2012.
Election they say -- this is just the three page single space legal document.
No -- it's gonna articulate the world view and the constitutional view.
Of this president.
And it's get a set into place.
A great political issue for 2012.
And the political issue is isolate intimidate the Supreme Court.
On and -- upon the Supreme Court fear.
And so when -- here attorney general holder.
Talk about what the president said you just made the reference to it that's now what the president said now the president said that the Supreme Court didn't have the authority.
That we know it has under a Marbury vs Madison and other cases -- before Marbury vs Madison.
And so they're seeing a Washington Post -- -- poll.
Probably internal polls that say 32%.
Of Democrats have less of an opinion of the Supreme Court.
After the obamacare argument 14%.
Republicans have less -- opinion and so they're saying.
This is our pressure point it's so they'll say.
Oh yes we give all due credit to the United States Supreme Court in our great constitutional history they have a wonderful power but it's -- power to be exercised.
Well it'll be interesting Peter to see whether or not he does make a political points in his three page single -- argument.
Do you think this the White House.
Thought this through go -- it.
-- -- let's talk about the economy let's talk about we we think health care is going down so we're gonna start blaming the Supreme Court we're gonna start laying that idea in people's minds.
In this thing has just blown up in their face and now -- cold -- got to find something okay give me another -- -- any oil America.
It has to do you have to give good faith to -- the motives of the president.
But based upon his duties as president -- based upon his self professed ability is a constitutional law professor.
It seems to me incongruous.
And incredible and incomprehensible.
That he would get it.
So -- its own.
Whole little excerpt from Harvard said Larry tribe as massive what do you her body got -- other professors saying.
What are you talking about.
But now I believe the White House sees this as a great.
Election year you -- issue and they going to take it hole.
