Democrats and "Judicial Rejectionism"

by Deacon Blues

"I will not acquiesce to an imperial court any more than our Founders acquiesced to an imperial British monarch. We must resist and reject judicial tyranny, not retreat."
--Supreme Court rejectionist Mike Huckabee after the Court's same-sex marriage ruling

A good number of conservatives around the country are so angry at the Supreme Court's 5-4 ruling on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage that they call for open rejection of the decision. Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, the Texas AG (well, that isn't surprising) and others are calling the court imperial and activist over the decision.

So does this mean that under this new doctrine of judicial rejectionism that Democrats across the land could have similarly rejected an "imperial court" and "judicial tyranny" in the Bush v. Gore and Citizens United rulings? Or does this new doctrine only allow conservative anarchists to opt-out of rulings they disagree with?
