High Unanimous Supreme Court Counts Against Obama
Not a big respecter of constitutional limits to his power.
In the more than five years that Mr. Obama has been in office, the court has rejected the government’s argument with a 9-0 decision 20 times.
During the eight years each in the administrations of George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, the government lost on unanimous votes 15 times and 23 times, respectively.
Bill is going to get passed up by Barack.

It's just a shame that it takes so long for dubious executive decisions to come before the Supreme Court. It would be nice if the SC could do 'quick and dirty' appraisals before any exec. decision goes into effect, chopping hubristic overreach off before it seeps into their thinking, let alone can affect the rest of the country.
"Not a big respecter of constitutional limits to his power."
And how is Obama different from Bush in this regard?
