    Obama thinks Illinois court acted stupidly, or something

    "The rules are for thee, but nnot for me". Obama is his own worst enemy. He can't resist letting his mouth overload his ass.

    Apparently, the White House has forgotten the lesson of the Beer Summit and the fallout from Obama’s ignorance in his SCOTUS SOTU Scolding last year. That lesson should have been that the President should either wait to see the evidence and the law before opining on legal matters outside of his jurisdiction, or better yet, keep his mouth shut altogether. Valerie Jarrett tells George Stephanopoulos this morning that President Obama thinks the Illinois appellate court got it wrong, and that Rahm Emanuel should have been left on the ballot despite not having lived in Chicago for the required year.

    Valerie Jarrett: “I think that he believes that [Rahm is] eligible and I believe that he believes that Rahm will pursue his appeal in the courts. And as he said then, he thinks Rahm would make a terrific mayor.”
    And this is a bad thing to say, because???

    Funny thing, Valerie Jarrett never even came close to uttering those words. Hot Air is just that, they made it up out of whole cloth.

    Re: Obama thinks Illinois court acted stupidly, or something

    it amazes me how statements are spun to appear to say other than what was actually expressed
    for example, let's view what was actually stated:
    Valerie Jarrett: “I think that he believes that [Rahm is] eligible and I believe that he believes that Rahm will pursue his appeal in the courts. And as he said then, he thinks Rahm would make a terrific mayor.”
    the thread title and the OP have nothing in common with the facts

    Re: Obama thinks Illinois court acted stupidly, or something

    Jarrett was sharing her opinion of What Obama believes, too. She didn't say "The president believes" she said "I think that he believes".

    For that to turn into what it's being portrayed as in the hot air article, one must completely remove all of their own sense of reason.

    Obama thinks the decision the Illinois court made was wrong. He did not say anything about "acting stupidly."

    Pretty sure that even though I did not vote for him, don't agree with many of his policies, and think he's ****ing up the country... he's still entitled to an opinion.
