Sunstein: Obama, not courts, should interpret law:

“JERUSALEM – The interpretation of federal law should be made not by judges but by the beliefs and commitments of the U.S. president and those around him, according to President Obama’s newly confirmed regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein.

‘There is no reason to believe that in the face of statutory ambiguity, the meaning of federal law should be settled by the inclinations and predispositions of federal judges. The outcome should instead depend on the commitments and beliefs of the President and those who operate under him,’ argued Sunstein.

This statement was the central thesis of Sunstein’s 2006 Yale Law School paper, ‘Beyond Marbury: The Executive’s Power to Say What the Law Is.’ The paper, in which he argues the president and his advisers should be the ones to interpret federal laws, was obtained and reviewed by WND.”

Stringing and Strowing says: Though this guy is not officially a czar in that Congress approved him, he is as radical as Obama’s friends come. He is a true danger to law and justice in this country. How do you feel about binding law according to Obama’s interpretation. This is worse than scandelous.
