Very little actually shocks me anymore in the political realm, but I certainly was shocked at Obama’s attack on the Supreme Court during the State of the Union speech.
Chief Justice Roberts as noted here his view of the “troubling” remarks.
But this isn’t about politics. This is about courtesy.
The Justices show-up as a courtesy to the President and Congress. No official attendance requirement exists. Just Thomas stopped coming years ago. As Roberts noted, the speech has “degenerated into a pep rally” for one side v the other.
Even that is fine as far as it goes.
But for a host, Obama, to attack a guest, SCOTUS, in a setting in which the guests are not allowed to respond… for the host to abuse his position to insult these guests – and to bring-on the mob-like response of every Dem in the chamber standing and jeering them — was just plain rude.
Skip the politics. Skip that the only way 99% of the Liberal agenda has been implemented has been through the Court as the voters routinely reject it. Skip that here is a far-left radical liberal very publicly attacking SCOTUS – the institution that has caused more of the Liberal agenda to be implemented than any other institution.
All Obama really did was demonstrate to the world how BADLY he was raised. That he never was taught common courtesy or even truly basic manners.
This self-procaimed “man of the world” lack even 5-yr-old’s grasp of common courtesy.
What a childish boor.
