DISSING THE SUPREME COURT
The assault on the constitution continues. Here the president takes the almost unprecedented step of trashing the Supreme Court at the very public occassion of the State of the Union address. This incredible action stomps on the constitutional separation of powers as the president tries to publicly humiliate the only branch of government that will not answer his classless remark in public.
The Supreme Court does it work in private until their findings are published. It would indeed be unseemly if they chose to remark on the stupidity of the other two branches everytime they overruled them as oftentimes they are calling them on overstepping their constitutional bounds. FDR tried to pack the court in the worst attack on the Supreme Court in the nation's history. His fellow Dems at the time were appalled and rightfully called a halt to his assault on another branch of government.
Unlike those Dems, the president's cheerleaders in the benches immediately behind the Supreme Court leapt to their feet and cheered as though they were at a college football game. Schumer is a jerk and it's well documented. Durbin is a wild partisan who compared American military members to Nazis and Pol Pot. So that type of childish conduct isn't surprising from these two juveniles jerks. I'm only surprised that they didn't tap one of justices on the shoulder and stick their tongue out at them.
But surprisingly the Attorney General of the US, too stood up and applauded. More proof that he, too, is nothing more than an ideological hack. Not surprisingly his decision to try KSM in NY is becoming more and more unpopular everyday. Way to think that one out Holder.
The hypocrisy of the president's and the Dems' argument is that this isn't about ideology it's about politics. The Dems perceive this ruling to favor the Repubs in fundraising, although the president raised a little corporate money himself in the campaign. What's hypocritical is this is coming from the party that favors open voting with no restrictions especially requiring the presentation of ID to vote. They see an advantage for themselves with illegal aliens among other groups over the Repubs. Essentially the president scored a cheap shot at the expense of the SCOTUS whom he knew would not call him on the fact that he was wrong. The law that precludes foreign companies from putting cash into an American election was left intact.
Day by day the president continues to add to the group of people he considers not worthy of respect or those who disagree with him. This is just one more example of a president who really has little regard for those he considers unworthy.
It's getting a little full under the bus, I'd say.
