He really did not like that ruling in defense of First Amendment freedoms did he? Has a president ever attacked The U.S. Supreme Court like that in such an august setting? Already, Fox News and CNN have made note of Justice Alito’s lip movements that seem to say “not true.” – A bit more reverential than Rep. Joe Wilson’s editorial comments.
There’s a long and copious list of high court rulings that do not sit well with those of who favor some form of “originalist” jurisprudence and it’s fine for the Supreme Court to figure into campaign talking points. But there is something unseemly about the president’s very vociferous comments and what this says about the separation of powers.
