For a Harvard trained lawyer who has not stood before a judge and tried cases it was amazing to hear our Supreme Potentate B-Rock Obama chastise the Supreme Court Justices during his State of the Union speech on a recent ruling that overturned some of the McCain-Feingold Campaign Reform Act.
This coming from a man that called himself a Constitutional Law Professor at the University of Chicago Law School. Even though the school listed him only as a senior lecturer. Yet I wonder what Constitution he lectured about.
According to Obama's fomer boss, Judson Miner, of the Miner, Barnhill & Galland law firm, B-Rock "wrote lots of substantial memos but did not try any cases." B-Rock himself admitted that he regretted that he did not do more trial work. Now because he lectured on the country's Constitution he considers himself more knowledgeable than the nine men and women who wear the robe. All the while never really working as a trial lawyer. Well Mr. President that s why we sit nine members and not one. And that is why as you indicted there is a separation of powers.
Our form of government is the best form of governing in the world because of the separation of powers. The Executive branch does not interpret law, nor does the Legislative branch which writes the laws that may end up needing interpretation as it pertains to our Constitution. The nine member panel did their jobs of taking a law and interpreting it as it pertains to the Constitution and more importantly the First Amendment:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
I am not opposed to the President expressing his opinion but to call the Supreme Court out as if they were an ignorant group of morons was appalling. B-Rock owes these men and women an apology and just maybe they can have a beer on the White House lawn to iron out their differences with the good professor.
These are my words! Please post yours!
