U.S. District Judge: Obama in 'Contempt'

In the wake of the ruling by Florida U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson that Obamacare is Unconstitutional in its entirety, the administration could be ruled in contempt if it continues to ignore the decision but it's already been ruled in contempt by another U.S. District Judge, this one in New Orleans. After a ruling this past summer that the Department of Interior had to lift the drilling ban in the Gulf of Mexico, the administration played games by refusing to issue permits. The judge has ruled Obama and company to be in contempt.

Via Bloomberg:
The Obama Administration acted in contempt by continuing its deepwater-drilling moratorium after the policy was struck down, a New Orleans judge ruled.

Interior Department regulators acted with “determined disregard” by lifting and reinstituting a series of policy changes that restricted offshore drilling, following the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history, U.S. District Judge, Martin Feldman of New Orleans ruled yesterday.

“Each step the government took following the court’s imposition of a preliminary injunction showcases its defiance,” Feldman said in the ruling.

“Such dismissive conduct, viewed in tandem with the re-imposition of a second blanket and substantively identical moratorium, and in light of the national importance of this case, provide this court with clear and convincing evidence of the government’s contempt,” Feldman said.
This ruling may expedite efforts on the part of the state of Florida to petition Vinson's court for a contempt ruling relative to the administration's refusal to cease and desist relative to the implementation of Obamacare. If Obama keeps this up, he'll have multiple contempt orders to deal with. Judges, regardless of ideological leanings, do belong to a fraternity and it's quite likely that said fraternity will not take kindly to an administration that ignores the judicial branch with such reckless abandon.

It wouldn't be all that surprising if this administration were to ignore a Supreme Court ruling that Obamacare is Unconstitutional. I think it's safe to say that such a scenario would justify impeachment proceedings.

What's that saying about pride coming right before the fall?
