It is interesting that our Chief Community Organizer and Constitutional Law Professor doesn't seem to have the knowledge (or "couth") to accept a Supreme Court Decision, even though he may disagree with it. If it is one he doesn't like, then he should try to dream up some legislation that will pass Constitutional muster. Poking his finger in the eye of the Supreme Court in a State of the Union speech and then demonstrating his lack of understanding of the decision by claiming some things that are not in fact true certainly gives us some indication of the extent to which he is willing to go to salve his ego.(from beaufortobserver.net)
You would think that after the last time he shot off his mouth without knowing all the facts he would have learned. Apparently not. You remember, that was the one that resulted in turning the White House Grounds into a beer garden.
What is truly interesting (read hypocritical) is the amount of support he received (and continues to receive) from big business (i.e. Unions and other "pressure groups" - like trial lawyers) while at the same time arguing against allowing other big business (i.e. Corporations) to contribute to the individuals of their choice. Surely organizations like SEIU, AFL-CIO, NEA, Trial Lawyers Assn. are all "big business". Of course we can always ask if their contributions to the Obama campaign resulted in any (or the expectation of any) preferential treatment.
You know, things like exempting the Unions' "Cadillac" health plans from the extra taxation that others who have high cost health insurance will be subjected to in the pending Health Care legislation. Or perhaps a total unwillingness to even discuss any restrictions against outrageous malpractice suits. Surely all the White House visits recorded by SEIU big shots or the healthy contributions from the Trial Lawyers have no significance in terms of influence on Government policies. It is only Corporations who would stoop to such tactics. Yeah, right ...
