A New Tone?

Barack Obama the candidate promised a new tone in Washington. Last night we saw him criticize the Supreme Court for a decision they made regarding the First Amendment which seemed to egg the Democrats in congress to jeer the court. It seems President Obama's definition of a new tone isn't the same as candidate Obama's definition of a new tone was and again seems to indicate Obama is tone deaf.

  1. Did you see the Keith Olbermann piece on this issue. Olbermann showed how Presidents have criticized the court before. He specifically showed Republican presidents talking about overturning Roe v Wade. He felt that every president had the right (free speech) to criticize the court and the Republicans were out of line calling for an apology from President Obama.

    Olbermann is not simply wrong, he's dense. There is a difference between disagreeing with someone in the course of things and doing it in a public event where you can speak, they can't and they must sit there and take it.

    Of course Obama can criticize the SCOTUS. He has the right. But he showed bad manners in doing so as he did it.
