    Re: Justice Alito mouths 'not true'

    If the president could make an attack in his speech, Alito could disagree with that comment in his speech.

    I'm not saying I agree with Alito, but freedom of speech is a constitutional right.

    Obama shouldn't have made the comment in the first place.

    There you go turning the thread partisan as a shill for the left. I don't suppose you have any real opinion about what Obama said?

And on top of that the swipe he took that broke decorum was arguably a lie.

    But you have NO negative words for Obama, NO words speaking of his behavior, his "classlessness".

    But you have an issue with a person sitting in the audiance talking to someone during a speech privately that happened to be caught on camera speaking his displeasure?

    You've never attended an event that you've commented on the speech quietly, privately, to a person you're attending it with before?

    If this was like the recent one and he jumped up and said "You Lie!" I'd agree with you, just as I agreed then. But he didn't, he didn't make a big spectacle, he made a small private comment that got caught on camera.

    Yet he's classless and worthy of all codemnation while you completely ignore Obama.

    With all that said, Alito has to be aware of the world we live in now a days. If you want to comment lean over to the person and cover your mouth because we live in the digital age and every movement of the eyes, lips, or hands is going to be disected in a thing like this.
    I agree with everything but this. Justices are never videotaped as a matter of there jobs. Only occasionally outside the court which is rare, so he is not use to being watched. BTW, you know damn well a camera crew was specifically looking for a reaction, just like they did with the JCS.

    I guess supreme court justices ARE human... and not just old wrinkly hags with bad haircuts.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Alito could school Barry on the Constitution any day of the week.

    Re: Justice Alito mouths 'not true'

    As an outsider to the US I have to ask

    Why is it more important as to who said what to whom than what they were disagreeing about?

    I don't know but here we would be arguing the merits of the decision and the proposed amendment rather than dissing people disagreeing

    But then our system is inherently adversarial
    Greenhouse gases: Any gas that, by an accident of chemistry, happens to absorb radiation of a type that the Earth, by an accident of history, would like to lose.
    The internet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhoea -- massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind- boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it.

    In the face of that, what was the horrible thing that Alito did? Did he stand up and object? No. Did he call Obama a liar? No. While other people wre clapping, he turned his head a few inches toward Sotomayor and inaudibly muttered what looks like "not true." Horror of horrors.

    Nevertheless, this type of thing is why Rehnquist was right when he said that Justices should not attend these events.

    Actually he taught at the University of Chicago Law School, not Harvard.
