    it is unseemly, to say the least, for our chief executive, in his sotu, to attempt to rally the legislative branch vs the judicial on some political battleground

    most sub presidential

    Why? He simply disagreed with the decision and said he wants to do something to change it if possible. He was a little direct about it, but there's nothing unusual about the legislative branch confronting the courts. Congress sometimes specifically overrules the courts by changing the law in response, when it's not a Constitutional issue of course.

    What disturbed me is how misleading Obama's comments about the decision were in the SOTU.

    I don't know he looked good bobo smacking the republicans the other night.

    Never have I seen such a magnificent president before except for JFK. I believe his magnificent performance will set a new paradigm when it comes to political debate.

    Tough. That's free speech!

    Do you think there should be limits on the amount of speech everyone should have? A dollar amount for everyone? Political parties, wealthy individuals, etc?
    Yes. limits on spending? I have already said so. I think a reasonable limit would be the average earnings of an individual per year. If the S.C. wants to define corporations this way than we should have a flat limit on spending per " person".
    Speech isn't corruption.
    political ads are little more than propaganda. They are banned in Britain.

    So is radio host Mike Savage. The brits have given up their rights because they have been duped by fear mongers. They have closed circuit tv cameras all over the place like big brother.

    And is the UK less corrupt and less beholden to special interests than the US? No.

    Furthermore, you're oversimplifying things quite a bit. Political interests there can get around the ban on ads much in the same way as they do here.

    (Not that the UK would ever be mistaken for a bastion of free speech in the first place.)

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
