GUEST EDITORIAL DEMOCRATS CLAIM HE'S A CONSTITUTIONAL LAWYER by Sal Giarratani On April 2, President Obama met with reporters to talk about his talks with Canada and Mexico about the drug trade in North America. At the end of that discus- sion he veered off into talking about the U.S. Supreme Court and how it might vote on his Affordable Health Care Act of 2010. The President apparently without his teleprompter clearly showed his total ignorance of how our government is set up under the U.S. Constitution. I heard the audio twice on the radio. First on the Jay Severin Show and later on the Michael Levin show, both on Talk 1200 Boston. I expected to find news sto- ries on the President's rare direct challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court in daily newspapers. I saw nothing in the Herald and a short AP story in the political roundup section buried deep within the paper. What gives? The president seemingly took a vigorous political appeal for judicial restraint directly to the American people. He warned that overturning the law would hurt millions of Americans and amount to an overreach by the "unelected" court. It appears he was taking the US Supreme Court to the court of the people which is a great political strategy but clearly dumb since Obama's supporters say the Harvard Law School graduate is a constitutional lawyer. If Obama claims to know what the constitution says why is he twisting it up inside out? He predicts that a court majority will uphold the law when the ruling is announced in June. But our former professor-in-chief seemed intent to show a pic- ture of the justices overstepping the high court's bounds if they vote the wrong way. As Obama stated at his Rose Garden news confer- ence, "Ultimately, I'm confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a democratically elected Congress." The AP news story appeared to edit the president's quote because the audio has him also saying "duly constituted law." These three words are important because I ask the question," "What is duly constituted?" What does con- stituted have to do with constitutional? It just makes me constipated. Unelected federal courts overturn "duly constituted laws" all the time. Immediately, the U.S. Court of Appeals in the 9 th Circuit over in San Fran- cisco comes to mind. I didn't hear the president rant- ing about that appeals court overturning a public vote of the people at the ballot box. He said nothing appar- (Continued on Page 15) LETTERS POLICY The Post-Gazette invites its readers to submit Letters to the Editor.
