    I guess this is Ried failing to control his emotions too......
    It's reminding me of this:

    Yea, it's more likely that this was just a mistake on his part due to the off the cuff nature of his remarks. It's not like speechwriters carefully craft every single syllable of the SOTU to be exceedingly precise with their message.

    Such outlandish hyperbole. Tell me, what's the difference between the before and after? Be specific, if you can...

    I think he was getting a great deal of direction from Karl Rove, and Cheney's influence cannot be overlooked - not that those are bad things; having competent cabinet members is crucial to a Presidency; it's too bad Obama doesn't understand that. It seems the only one who knows what's going on in his cabinet is Bush's SEC DEV...

    I mean, David Axelrod and Rahm Emmanuel? These guys are the quintessential Chicago politicians. How in God's name we could trust national security and economic policy to a couple of lightweights like that is beyond me. Why don't we put Blagojevich in charge of Homeland Security while we're at it?

    Really America...

    Obama lied. Is that something a classy person does?

    Why this is such a big deal to you is beyond me.
    Hmmmm. I am writing about it on here. I spoke with my husband about it when it came up on the news we were watching. That's the extent of my discussions about it.

    I'm just disgusted that a Supreme Court Justice doesnt' have better manners than that. Kennedy and Roberts were part of the majority with Kennedy being the author and both of them had the class to not react.

    You see his MO is... spend trillions then afterwards, hold a speech about fiscal responsibility. Sign a bill for 800 billion with 9,000 pork laden ear marks and then call on Congress for less pork and the posting of ear marks on the web. The American Indians used to call that a "forked tongue".
    Can you tell me how it's a blatant lie what he said? It matches with what Stevens said in his dissent. Please share with me in detail how what he stated was a blatant lie. I'm still waiting for someone else to provide me evidence of such and NO ONE has done so.

    Alito didn't use it as a forum for presenting opinions. He didn't get up on a mic. He didn't stand up and state it out loud. He did not wave his arms going "look at me, look at me". He had a quick instant reaction while in the crowd of a speech. That's not trying to use it as a "forum" to present his opinion, that's reacting to something.

    Should he have reacted that way? Not really. But it was no more classless, no more uncalled for, no more unacceptable than Obama's OWN breach of decorum and class that spurred it
    Usually, when presidents speak at the State of the Union, they talk about their strategy for what they'd like to see done in the United States. Obama would like to see legislation to address the repercussions of this Supreme Court decision. While what he did was unusual, it's not a breach of decorum.

    Please provide me evidence that Obama lied. Otherwise, I won't believe it.
