    Re: Federal judge holds Obama administration in contempt over drilling “permitorium”

    Isn't this the same judge who didn't have a conflict of interest back in July because he sold his oil and gas industry stocks in June?

    Yes, yes it is.

    Does the Judge Who Blocked Obama's Drilling Moratorium Suffer from an Unethical Conflict of Interest?

    I am all for the court systems doing what it is that they do. The funny part is the conservatives all rejoining the rest of society in supporting the three branches, but when Bush was in office they thought the justice system was too liberal and unpatriotic!

    Way to rejoin society, guys!

    Props to the fed judge, btw. Gutsy move.
    My point is that several people would be calling this guy an activist judge if he was going after George W. Bush or someone like that. It's a totally different story when the shoe is on the other foot.

    According to Chucky Schumer the judiciary is not a branch of govt.

    Were you chirping the same way when a gay judge declared DADT un-constitutional? No?

    What's even funnier, is how folks like yourself aren't saying, "well, Obama is subject to the law just like everyone else", but rather going on the offensive against Conservatives.
