Laurence Tribe, Harvard Law Professor, Constitutional Law Scholar & President Barack Obama Mentor Says That Obama Misspoke Regarding Comments About SCOTUS


Another bad day for Obama and his “judicial activism” comments … Yet another Obama “Lost in Smallness” moment.

President Barack Obama is going to rue the day when he made the ridiculous comments and vale threats to the Supreme Court Justices regarding “judicial activism” and Obamacare.  Emperor Obama actually questioned how an “unelected group of people” could overturn a law approved by Congress.

“I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”

How bad of a comment was this by Obama, even his former mentor, Harvard Law professor and Constitutional Law scholar Laurence Tribe was forced to say that Obama misspoke. Wow, if Tribe thinks that Obama was one of his best students, I hate to see the not-so good ones who have no concept of “judicial review” and Murbury v. Madison. Or is it just Obama that likes to mislead “We the People”?

Constitutional law scholar Laurence Tribe, a Harvard Law School professor and former mentor to President Barack Obama, said the president “obviously misspoke” earlier this week when he made comments about the Supreme Court possibly overturning the health-care law.

Mr. Tribe, who calls the president was one of his best students, said in an interview: “He didn’t say what he meant…and having said that, in order to avoid misleading anyone, he had to clarify it.”

Mr. Tribe said he saw no reason for the president to express his views on the matter, because everyone already knows he wants the case upheld.

“I don’t think anything was gained by his making these comments and I don’t think any harm was done,” Mr. Tribe said, “except by public confusion.”

You don’t think any harm was done, really? If Tribe really thought that no harm was done to Obama and Obama’s credibility he would not be commenting on The One’s misspeak and comment that Obama made was misleading people. This is hardly a ringing Obama endorsement when he has to be bailed out for looking and talking like gaffe prone VOP Joe Biden.

Obama not only had Tribe say he misspoke, but also got spanked by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, regarding Obama’s comments. Attorney General Eric Holder says he’ll comply with a federal judge’s request to type three single-spaced pages recognizing the authority of the federal courts to strike down laws passed by Congress. While Tribe said that Obama misspoke, Obama minion Eric Holder, actually defended Obama’s comments as appropriate. We can see why so many have called for Holder to resign.

Attorney General Eric Holder defended Obama’s comments today, calling them “appropriate” when he was asked by reporters if he’ll respond to the request for a written explanation by Judge Jerry Smith, a Reagan appointee on the appeals court.

Then there was White House Press Secretary and Obama minion mouth piece Jay Carney further exacerbating the Obama screw up by trying to defend Obama’s actions and words. Could these people torture the English language anymore? Next thing they will be telling us it all depends on what is, is.

      yesterday a member of parlement resigned here.

      He was interviewed by radio and made a big f up.
      (the aim of the radio show was to see if the politicians knew the current events and world news)

      The reporter asked what mr. Leerdam(Labour) thought about the things that Israeli politician Ariel Sharon said on immigration.
      mr. Ariel Sharon is in a coma since 2006.

      The reporter also asked what Leerdam thought about the release of the Hague terrorist Jablabla, due to a error by the prosecution.

      There is no terrorist Jablabla….just the normal blabla comming from the Hague

      Public Confusion? Again, the insults. Perhaps the people that elected obama are confused. I hope they are clearer in their minds this November. Bottom line, obama is clueless if he thinks he is so incredibly intelligent, it takes a village of flunkies to explain to us what he really meant, and it’s our fault we can’t keep up with his quick mind. Piece of advice, engage brain, then open mouth. And how incredibly stupid is it for him to make any antagonist remark to the Supreme Court justices?
