Obama Hammers Supreme Court in Speech
In State of the Union, President Suggests Court Opened Doors to Foreign Intervention in American Elections
(CBS) This story was written by CBSNews.com political reporter Brian Montopoli.President Obama is taking aim at the Supreme Court's recent decision to roll back limits on corporate spending on political campaigns in his State of the Union address this evening, saying the high court "reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests - including foreign companies - to spend without limit in our elections."
"Well I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, and worse, by foreign entities," the president will say, according to excerpts provided by the White House. "They should be decided by the American people, and that’s why I’m urging Democrats and Republicans to pass a bill that helps to right this wrong."
According to CBS News Chief Legal Correspondent Jan Crawford, "the rebuke of the Court is extraordinary." Many of the justices involved in the 5-4 decision are expected to be in the House chamber to hear Mr. Obama's speech. LinkHere

Alito shakes heading, mouthing "not true," as Obama says recent Supreme Court decision will let lobbyists and corporations own our elections. Highly inappropriate for Alito to do this. You'll notice the Sup Ct doesn't even clap when the president enters. They are not supposed to respond to anything, lest it show bias. Highly inappropriate. Alito's "You Lie!" moment: LinkHere

Obama's speech was classic Benito Mussolini. Spooky. Hope he doesn't suffer the same fate. See:
"Obama Creates Poverty, Not Jobs!"
