Spoken like a fawning lawyer worshiping at the trough. Where in the Constitution does it say that the Supreme Court (which didn't exist when the Constitution was ratified) is the final arbiter on the meaning of the Constitution? The Constitution created only a Chief Justice of the U.S. The inferior courts and the expansion of the Supreme Court didn't happen until the Judiciary Act was passed in 1789. Because you're probably a lawyer incapable of considering that legal precedent is not, a priori, the immutable truth, you are also incapable of even entertaining the possibility that Congress (like President Obama) could also declare itself to be the ultimate arbiter of the Constitution's meaning.
