Quote of the Day: Judicial Activism Redefined

Via P&P:
I'll reiterate for you that [Obama] has totally incorrectly defined judicial activism. Nobody ever accuses judges of judicial activism for following the Constitution. Judicial activism is when judges do not follow the Constitution, when they legislate from the bench, when they write their own law.
Don't let the left redefine judicial activism, turning the definition inside out.

Bonus quote via Protein Wisdom:
...if a “do nothing Congress” is one that refuses to rubber-stamp Obama’s policy dictates, and an “activist judiciary” is one that refuses to rubber-stamp legislation passed by a partisan, supermajority Democrat Congress, why don’t we simply just cut out all the overlap and go right to a dictatorship?
