BARACK OBAMA'S SOLICITOR GENERAL NOT STUMBLING BUT HAS NO CASE
So how then is this supposed great litigator stumbling and bumbling as he presents the two most important cases to the Obama administration before SCOTUS? Could it be that he has no case to present and even this supposed expert litigator KNOWS he has no case and is destined to lose because of the weak case the government has for Obamacare and against Arizona's immigration law?
So many aspects of Obamacare are unconstitutional and anyone with a strong legal mind which seems to be the case with Verilli, knows this to be true. As a result as he stands before the High Court trying to argue that especially the absolute unconstitutional mandate is legal and the court should let this illegal mandate stand, maybe this expert litigator's heart is just not in it since he understands he has no case.
The same may well apply to his stumbling and bumbling as he presents the case before SCOTUS that Arizona has no right to protect its citizens and secure its borders which is the argument the government is making to show that the immigration law in illegal and should be overturned by the High Court. The Constitution provides for all states to have sovereign control in protecting citizens of that state and also have the Constitutional sovereignty to secure and protect their borders. A fact that was brought out by both Conservative and Liberal Judges on the Court during Verilli's arguments.
Maybe, just maybe Verilli isn't the incompetent boob that many are trying to say but a solid legal mind who knows he has no case and is just going through the motions because his boss Barack Obama expects him to make a case regardless of whether it holds any legal water or not.
SCOTUS will be releasing its opinions on both cases in June as the Courts year ends. My personal prediction is that Obamacare's mandate will be declared unconstitutional and as was discussed during litigation since the law cannot stand without the mandate it will end the threat of Obamacare. The Court has a history of standing for state sovereignty and this was the basic line of questioning during the litigation by the Justices during the case over the Arizona immigration law. As such I also predict that the Arizona law will be allowed to stand based on State sovereignty and as such several states who have similar laws pending will implement them and we will begin to see tough immigration policy finally take place.
