    I'm afraid you're off on this one. All I'm doing is holding them accountable for their actions. I respect what you're trying to do by being fair to both sides, but frankly that can go too far when it gets in the way of accountability. Obama did something inappropriate, liberals in Congress and the Media applauded it, that is not simply decorum- that is a bad thing and I can state that without being "pathetic".

    I didn't state YOU are pathetic, I said it of your attempt to politicize and wrongly infer the feelings of the entire "left" based on the actions of the politicians that was right in line with the traditional and commonly performed ettiquite for the night was.

    I would agree with you 100% if this wasn't the SOTU and they stood up and applauded. But what he did, while extremely rare and I think uncalled for, wasn't enough in my eyes at all for people to instantly think "GRRR lets break age old tradition and common ettiquite of the nigh for this". Not in the least.

    Your NOTION, your THOUGHT, your assertion is as pathetic of an attempt at scoring political points as Disneydudes attempt to do the exact same thing as you, save for being its opposite, with regards to the republicans. Its manipulating a decades to centuries old tradition for political gain, and is a display of worthless political hyper partisanship for the sake of scoring points and has nothing to do with accountability nor principle.

    My apologizes if you were thinking I was insulting you specifically, I was not. You've seemed a decent poster from what I can remember thus far. That said, it doesn't make your point any less unsavory as Disneydudes and I'm not going to magically treat your point better than his simply because you're a conservative and he's a liberal. A pathetic manipulation of tradition to score political points by someone being overly partisan is bad, regardless of the side.

    So, a corrupt judge mouths "not true" in response to the exposure of his corruption.

    I would be surprised had he nodded in agreement, but I'm glad he was caught in the act here.

    That's fine, but I think you're confused about what decorum is. The applause after the inappropriate comment wasn't ceremonial. It was intended by the liberals who participated to express their approval and indeed enhance the embarrassing/indimidating effect of the inappropriate comment.

    Now I happen to believe that is reflective of their ability to lead the country in that it demonstrates a lack of respect for separation of powers and the intended role and functioning of government in the US. Therefore it is a point worth making- it is not a pathetic notion or thought. There is a difference between making a legitimate point and taking a "hyperpartisan" shot for a cheap "political gain" which you are also failing to distinguish.

    I don't take it as an insult. And I suspect we agree on the underlying principle. I just generally don't like the notion that every time we hold one party accountable for something they do wrong we are obliged to try to moderate and qualify it, particularly in a case like this where there isn't really a any comparison in recent history.

    Obama shows more inexperience, you don't take issue with a court ruling and have the Chamber behind you applaud. The Court isn't a political animal, at least, not supposed to be one.

    Alito correct in shaking his head and speaking disapprovement, Obama is a circus clown, I hope last night made that clear to everyone.

    Look at Justice Robert's face as well. He understands Obama is a clown. Even Sotomayor looks a lil bothered....although with her 7 chins, I can't tell.

    Here...is the State of the Union Address, you don't take swipes at the Court in front of you. Your not knowing this doesn't excuse Obama's clownish antics.

    Obama is an inexperienced mental midget.

    Considering the fact these corrupt creatures just hammered in a bunch of nails in the coffin of our democracy, I think they got off light, myself.
