What Happened to Separation of Powers?

Is there no end to the arrogance and narcissism of this president? On Monday, Mr. Obama met with the president of Mexico and prime minister of Canada. In response to a question about the Supreme Court and Obamacare, the president warned the court not to overturn the law. He did say he was confident it would be upheld.

The president questioned how an "unelected group of people" could overturn a law passed by Congress.

I'll tell you how, Mr. Constitutional Attorney. It's called the separation of powers. The Supreme Court is a co-equal branch of government that should not be subject to intimidation by the executive or legislative branches. The founders wanted to disperse power, not collect it in the executive.

This president behaves as if he was elected king and whatever he wants to do he should be allowed to do. A second term will be worse than the first. You'd better pay attention to what he is doing and wants you to do and tell your friends.

I'm Cal Thomas in Washington.
