President Barack Obama is a “bully” for trying to shove his healthcare reform law down Americans’ throats and for trying to intimidate the Supreme Court into upholding the law, says staunch conservative Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C.

Obama, with his inexperience, wants to "force people to buy things they don't want" through Obamacare, DeMint said at a town hall meeting in Rock Hill, S.C., the Rock Hill Herald reports.

The president and his administration "believe Americans are stupid," DeMint said.

He was echoing the remarks of another top South Carolina politician, GOP Gov. Nikki Haley. The governor, who frequently serves as a surrogate for Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney, also called Obama a bully this week.

"What is amazing is what a bully President Obama has suddenly become," she told Fox News, The Hill reports.

"Here was a man that came in with 'hope and change,' and now he's bullying his way. He's bullying his way on [House Budget Committee Chairman] Paul Ryan, saying that he's not coming up with an adequate budget. Now he's bullying the Supreme Court, saying, 'No, they won't reverse this, they won't go against us on this.' That's not how things work.”
