“The supermajority in the Senate likely will not change...Obama will have to navigate thru it. MANY SUCCESSFUL US presidents dealt with this TOO.......

although the MAJORITY PARTY has the OPTION of changing the rules of the Senate(supermajority is NOT mentioned in US Constitution), which has been done NUMEROUS times throughout history.

The Dems rejected this as "the nuclear option". My basic point is that saying that others oppose you is not a valid reason to fail........since EVERY PRESIDENT had OPPOSITION PARTIES.....”

“how many jobs bills did the repubs block for the FIRST TWO YEARS of Obama? ......when the Dems had the MAJORITY.....

Opposition parties worldwide try to BLOCK/OPPOSE what the party in power is doing....is why they are called "opposition parties"........the trick, however, for a successful leader, is to get things done ANYWAY......

if the Dems are waiting for the repubs to HELP THEM......they will be waiting an awful long time......”

“That's when they passed the stimulus that has created 4million jobs. We are loosing public sector thanks to republican austerity.”

“I did not offer a comment on whom appointed various judges......all I said was US 9th circuit was based in SF........and they are......I did not want to write a mauscript because that makes it hard to read.....

9th circuit is often referred to as "the liberal 9th circuit" because they have the most liberal track record of all the circuits......that was all I was saying......

as far as neutrality of Sup Ct.......I just disagree. The US sup court in the last few years has shown itself to be among the most partisan, pro-corporation courts ever......(see citizens V United)

The wives of at least two sup ct members are working with PARTISAN political groups, which had LONG BEEN taboo for sup ct members....in the past.....”

“I take your comment to mean you do not think US Sup Ct is neutral? Well, after Citizens V United......you dont think I will do disagree with that do you?.....

US sup Ct is a joke in my opinion, but unfortunately, and despite what I think, they are still the highest court in the land.....

I probably could have said "supposed to be neutral" when referencing sup ct....

9th circuit is trying hard to "distinguish" this case(prop 8) from other cases so that sup ct will NOT intervene......

if they write their opinion in such a way as to ONLY apply to Cali(9th circuit decisions are binding on ALL STATES in the 9th circuit(8 or 9 states))......they may escape sup ct review, if not, sup ct would have no choice but to review it since it could change laws in Alaska,AZ,hawaii,montana,idaho,nevada & oregon.......”

"

I don't think they will be able to get away with writing their opinion that narrowly. The same issues on the table under Prop 8 will apply to the vast majority of states with anti-gay marriage laws on the books. Ted Olsen was on an interview Friday (I think it was Hardball), and it sounds like they are leaning towards taking it to the SC. Even though the 9th seems to agree with the lower court, it will probably be appealed, eventually. It may be on youtube.”

l78lancer on May 12, 2012 at 02:43:40

“No, I don't think that SC is neutral. On the contrary, it's probably one of the most polarized and politically biased in history. I was referring to the other comment because it seems to state that the SC is "neutral," and is a bit misleading in the way it's written.”

“I was just pointing out that virtually the same law that was blocked in California has NOT been blocked in at least 32 other states.....

Sup Ct is a very private group and we will not know if they take the case until it is made public.....

I read both conservative and liberal news sites, and I noticed on the Conservative sites they say sup ct is signalling that they WILL hear the case.......

but I think neither side has any way of knowing what is going on in the inner workings of the Sup Ct....we will have to wait until after the election at the earliest....”

“By a San Francisco Court.....and is being heard by SF based US 9th circuit court of appeals.....once it gets out of SF.......it will be heard by a neutral court and decided......most likely US Sup CT since that is the only court over US 9th circuit.....”

CrazyThisIs on May 12, 2012 at 02:17:37

“Do you know what judges make up the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and the Presidents who appointed them. None of them are from SF, they travel around the SW states of the US and have been appointed by Reagan, Carter, George W. Bush, and Clinton. They are from states like Montana and the like. It's important to know these things before suggesting that a judicial group, called together by Republican and Democrat presidents alike, is not a "neutral court."”

l78lancer on May 12, 2012 at 02:13:24

“Oh, those must be some of the "activist judges" who Newt wanted to send the marshalls after.

But you may want to take another look at your statement. If the SC is over the 9th Circuit, then what "neutral court" do you suppose will be looking at it?”
