Classless president

I’m with Petitedov, I don’t understand how the story this morning is the rudeness of Justice Alito shaking his head and possibly mouthing “not true” and not that Obama berated the justices in his address. The latter is so much ruder because, well, the justices are just supposed to sit there and take it. I like that Alito registered his subtle complaint about the untruth being said about him, it was the most he could do trapped in the awkward situation Obama placed him in.

It’s rude to show any public disagreement with Chairman Obama—especially when he’s trashing you in front of millions of people watching on TV.

Even by the standards of the liberal mainstream media I thought this morning’s spin was ridiculous.

I’m a little torn here. Way too much power is held by the Nazgul on the bench-those horrible 9 kings in black robes who rule us and, yeah, they make bad decisions all the time and any chance we can knock them down a few pegs is not a bad idea. Still, Obama really does have a nasty habit of showing no class at the most formal of moments-not just here but at the inaugural address when he took a few shots at W (compare that to the usually sanctimonious Carter who had a gracious tribute to Ford in his address).

While partisan criticism of the courts on a particular ruling which changes interpretation is not new to a SOTU addresses, to blatantly lie to the American people as to what the ruling does, from someone who is supposedly a “constitutional scholar” is unacceptable.

Alito did well to remember the way to the meeting. He is very forgetful at times (esp. when it is forget or take the 5th)

Pity the O’Dumbo administration when a case that is close to 50/50 comes before the SCOTUS, like is impeaching O’Dumbo right or wrong. The SC decision was already made by O’Dumbo.
Too bad he didn’t follow the congressman and scream ‘you lie’ which would have been the right, if not PC polite’ thing to do. Calling a liar a liar in never wrong. When you lie to millions you should be called a liar in front of the same millions and not allowed to later print a retraction in unreadable print. The fringe (former MSM) media has buried itself doing that. The only thing left for them is a two car funeral procession and they’ll screw that up.

It’s good you didn’t omit “supposedly,” otherwise I would have guffawed for an hour. Or at least until I saw who wrote it. :)
