President Obama v. SCOTUS

April 3, 2012 (At an Associated Press luncheon, in response to a question about the Supreme Court and his health care legislation.)

"The Supreme Court is the final say on our Constitution and our laws, and all of us have to respect it.  It's precisely because of that extraordinary power that the court has traditionally exercised significant restraint and deference to our duly elected legislature, our Congress."


January 27, 2010 (Addressing the nation in the State of the Union address with six of the nine Supreme Court Justices in the audience.  The President refers to the Citizens United case.)

"With all due deference to separation of powers, last week the Supreme Court reversed a century of law that, I believe, will open the floodgates for special interests, including foreign corporations, to spend without limit in our elections."
