Judge Napolitano Decries “Obamacare Intimidation”

This morning, Judge Andrew Napolitano took a not-so-veiled swipe at President Obama's growing critiques of the Supreme Court's decision over his health care law. The former New Jersey Superior Court Judge called it "incomprehensible and desperate." "We were scratching our heads when we were watching this and had it played over and over again because this is a graduate of Harvard Law School," Napolitano said. "Two of the best law schools in the country and he's rejecting a basic premise of American law that's not been seriously questioned in 175 years." 

Yesterday, Obama made an unusual preemptive strike Monday that previews the Democratic strategy if the high court nixes all or major parts of his signature domestic achievement. His volley, coming less than a week after the oral arguments wrapped up and while the justices are still deliberating, injects a high-level dose of politics into the most anticipated ruling since the court settled the 2000 presidential race.
