You know how funny that sounds coming from you??
Your comments up to this point are like the overweight slob sitting at Yankee stadium yelling at A-Rod for swinging at one bad pitch. A professional athlete has more athleticism in his little finger than the human waste sitting in the stands guzzling beers--yet from the safety of the stands, fatso can yell whatever he wants.
On the anonymous internet, you can pretend to have a Phd in economics and a law degree. It's amazing how partisans believe their intelligence and life accomplishments are some how in the same league with a sitting President.
Obama was overstating the 'bankrolling' impact of the court's decision--not the first time a politician has ever done that.
Alito shook is head and made a quiet remark. Big deal. Biden was shaking his head all night.Indeed, the legal experts we spoke to after Obama's radio address said that the president was overstating the immediate impact of the opinion. They said Obama was correct that the ruling could open the door to foreign companies spending on American campaigns, given the general direction of the majority's opinion. But because the majority justices didn't actually strike down the existing barriers on foreign companies -- in fact, they explicitly wrote that it fell beyond the boundaries of their decision -- our experts agreed that Obama erred by suggesting that the issue is settled law. Until test cases proceed and further rulings are handed down, Obama's claim about foreign campaign spending is a reasonable interpretation, and nothing more.
But of course FNC rolled out their new queen to begin talking out of her ass... Sarah Palin, a woman who couldn't name one supreme court case besides Roe v Wade is now acting like she's some sort of scholar -- and now ideologues on internet can echo her moronic talking points...
I think this is all about the far-right comfort zone being pushed, seeing the Republican senators and congressmen stand up and clap so many times. They need to make the SOTUS all about one moment and not bother to actually discuss the entire speech.
To see the right side of the aisle leap up and clap so many times must be killing the far-right fringe Tea Bagger bigots... I'm surprised they're not analyzing the tape and pointing out the Rinos.
