“Not true”: Alito mouths words as Obama hammers Supreme Court

posted at 10:44 pm on January 27, 2010 by Allahpundit

He’s on the far left of your screen, seated to the right of Sotomayor. Politico’s calling it his Joe Wilson moment.

When you hear the president of the United States demagoging the First Amendment, you sit there and you take it, son.

Update: CBS screwed up the embed code initially. If you’re seeing the bit about Afghanistan, try refreshing. You should see the Supreme Court clip then. If not, click here. That should do it.

This juvenile rant that came out of Obozos mouth tell me and i hope others that this man child should not be within 500 miles of the WH .This country is hanging by a tread and i just hope and pray we can survive for three more years.PS the supremes should have just got up and walked out.

The President took a hint from Ricky Bobby…I mean, he did say something like “with all due respect”

The guy is a total dirtbag. He is a consummate liar and we need to be rid of him and his thug cronies. He is simply not one of us. He is NOT an American at heart or in mind. He doesn’t understand our clarity or the wonder of what the US really is. Great start in Massachusetts, we must keep it going. Obozo certainly helped us last night in his lack of class and outlandish narcissism. I started to count the number of “I”s and “MY”s but lost count. Go here and tell him directly…. not that we want him to change, we want him gone http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact

highninside on January 28, 2010 at 12:06 PM

I read lips after a fashion. Look closely. He says, “Simply not true.”

So not only is he calling the President a liar, he’s callinghim a stupid liar.

Tennman on January 28, 2010 at 12:08 PM

McCain, who co-authored the law, doesn’t know either since I saw him on Larry King say the President had merit in pursuing the foreign contributions…

Greyledge Gal on January 28, 2010 at 2:12 AM

Well after McCain thought McCain-Feingold was constitutional it was clear McCain can’t read simple text (like 2 U.S.C. Section 441e or the Constitution) and understand it.

gekkobear on January 28, 2010 at 12:13 PM

I love statements that begin, “With all due deference,” or, “With all due respect.”

“I don’t mean no disrespect Jimmy, but your sister’s a slut.”

If you still don’t believe this Marxist Commie is a grave threat to our way of life…………then you must believe he was born in the good old USA. This guy lies for a living….he has never said an honest word yet…………this isn’t funny anymore………..now I’m scared……….to attack the U.S. Supreme Court and watch as they sat there with the Dems clapping and cheering………whoooo………..that is scary!

Cinday Blackburn on January 28, 2010 at 12:32 PM

Leftist appearing host of “Fox News Sunday”, Chris Wallace, during a guest appearance on “Happening Now”, just defended the rude and inappropriate comment that Obama directed towards the Supreme Court justices last night.

Was Obama’s comment, which was a blatant insult directed at SCOTUS justices, any less offensive than the “you lie” comment made by South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson, during Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress, in the House of Representatives? Chris Wallace certainly delighted in attacking Joe Wilson for his comment, which of course was correct.

Oh that’s right… Obama is above the law and the rules. No rebuke for “the One”.

Pelosi, Cuomo, Ferraro… please go away.

Giuliani, Alito, Scalia… we Italian-Americans are glad that there are some of us who aren’t lefty nutjobs.

mankai on January 28, 2010 at 12:37 PM

Didn’t watch the speech. Couldn’t stomach it. I’ve read a couple places that he talked about Reagan. Did he also praise Carter? If not, why not? He’s following Carter far more than any other.

Don’t forget President Pinocchio. I laughed when he made the comments about the big bad lobbyists…there may be fewer lobbyists around now mainly because he made exceptions and appointed them to his cabinet. I also recall a post saying lobbyists had record earnings this year.

scalleywag on January 28, 2010 at 1:06 PM

Petty, small, intended to intimidate, un-civil, haughty, arrogant, class-less, dictator wannabe and he’s JUST GETTING STARTED!!!!

If Obama declared a national emergency today and temporarily suspended the Constitution 90% of the Minority voting bloc would support him.

If he did, MSNBC/CNN/ABC/etc. would all cry out that it’s “necessary”. You can visualize Chuck Todd reporting on it now. Gibbs calls it temporary and only until the crisis is over.

When 90% of ANY GROUP would support a President suspend individual rights……..we are in deep freaking doo doo people!!!!

Would love to have been a fly on the wall after the SCourt Justices were alone to talk.

Notice that even Sotomayor looks as if she had swallowed something disagreeable in reaction to this petulant moron’s words.

PJ Emeritus on January 28, 2010 at 1:39 PM

Dear Senator XXXX: Shame on the Democrats in Congress who stood and cheered as the President berated the Supreme Court of the United States. Article III of the Constitution vests power in the SCOTUS and extends their power to all cases within their jurisdiction–and the Citizens United case was one of those. The SCOTUS acted within their constitutionally framed powers and rendered their judgment. The President has the power to appoint justices to the court, but should refrain from openly intimidating them at a time when his purpose ought to be delivering the State of the Union–a privilege extended to him by the same Constitution he trampled when he mocked the SCOTUS’ decision. Shame on the President for denigrating the SCOTUS and the Constitution by proxy. Shame on your fellow Democrats for standing and cheering that. It was utterly ridiculous.

So work with me on this- WHY am I hearing various people, even our local conservative “talkers” going on about Alito being out of line for “daring” to contradict Obama by saying, (if he even did) “Not true”?? He didn’t say it out loud, he didn’t cause a scene, and with all due respect, President a$$hole deserved to get his face rubbed in mud for purposly embarrassing our SCOTUS anyway!

I’m astounded that anyone, even a lib would take this position. Barry destroyed any respect for his Presidency that he may have been “owed” with all the blatent lying he does day in and day out. Why would anyone criticize Alito for visually looking as if he was offended??

Exactly!!!!! I can’t believe people are making such a big deal out of this. Nobody cares!!!! Where’s the outrage in the media about Obama talking down to them? Good God I’m so f*cking tired of the Democrats in this country. Throw the bums out!!!
And frankly Alito should be a hero to all. He didn’t hold his tongue, and neither should the rest of them. They should have all flipped him off as far as I’m concerned.

NathanG on January 28, 2010 at 4:02 PM

Congressman XXXX:

I take issue with the President’s open mocking of the SCOTUS decision in the Citizen United case. Article III of the Constitution vests judicial power in that body, and Article II vest power in the president to appoint justices to that body—a power he has already utilized. The President and the SCOTUS justices are guests of the people in the State of the Union address–a message authorized in Article II. It is flippant, disrespectful and petulant for the President to stand upon his Article II privileges and mock the decision rendered by another Constitutionally proper branch of government that acted within their vested power and jurisdiction. Moreover, to do so in front of Congress while a guest in the House was fundamentally disrespectul to the People of the United States from whom all three of those branches of government derive their power. I openly rebuke the President’s decision to mock the SCOTUS decision during the SOTU. The same Constitution that allows him to give that address gives the SCOTUS the power to make the decision they made in Citizens United. What retort does the SCOTUS have in response to this? None. Is this an effort to intimidate, belittle or weaken the SCOTUS? I would urge your office to inform the White House that Americans are neither amused, nor encouraged to see the weakening or attacking of the SCOTUS when it acts within its Constitutional authority. Moreover, we are not amused by Article II powers overreaching and encroaching upon either Article I or Article III branches of government. Please pass along the discontent with this behavior. Thank you.

ted c on January 28, 2010 at 4:07 PM

Hillary can roll her eyes during a Bush address, and that’s OK. Alito can’t mouth to himself “not true”. LOVE the double standards about proper conduct.

Sam Adams on January 28, 2010 at 4:18 PM

The spectacle of the Justices surrounded, jeered and openly challenged by the other two branches of government, both of which are controlled by Democrat HYENAS, was a chilling reminder of what is at stake this coming November.

Agreed. If nothing else, these people must be taught a lesson. I’m sick of their arrogance, rudeness, and crassness. They don’t deserve sh*t from us; just a quick kick in the a$$.

Of course the nut jobs on Kos think Alito is corporate tool. Joe Wilson had guts to shout it, and Alito has the manners and knows the truth about the ruling. Both said the same thing – LIAR!

BoSox_or_Bust on January 28, 2010 at 5:39 PM

It’s disgusting that the president is a guest there as is the SCOTUS and he takes the liberty to scorn them. Appalling to the highest order.

Another piasan here.

My question is this, if there are any attorneys here that may be able to clarify the SCOTUS decision for me about foreign contributions. I remember hearing during the 2008 campaign, Maobama was receiving a lot of small donations from overseas, especially from the Middle East.

Does this ruling include foreign individuals or just foreign corporations?

The factually “incorrect” and woefully inappropriate accusation/comment, which Mr. Obama directed at the Supreme Court justices was no less offensive than Congressman Joseph Wilson’s factually “correct” but poorly timed comment, which he directed at Mr. Obama.

At least Congressman Wilson offered Mr. Obama an apology.

sinsing on January 28, 2010 at 9:59 PM

That’s some classy president we’ve got there. (insert the new sarc punctuation mark here.)

The man-child is disgusting. The justices have too much dignity – perhaps too shocked to consider this action – but, if I were in their place I would have gotten out of my seat and walked the f*** out.

“Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but we’re not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth members of the Supreme Court of United States of America. Ladies and Gentlemen!”

And what p*sses me off even more is that idiotic article on Politico about the Dems being infuriated about Alito mouthing “not true” and for “lying” about not overturning precedent. Are you f*cking kidding me? That’s it! I can’t take it anymore! If the Republicans don’t take the House this November and take at least 7 seats in the Senate, I will personally, along with I hope thousands and thousands of people, storm the Capitol and make sure these people are beaten to a pulp! I know I sound like a crazy idiot, but I don’t care!
