#rsrh A brief observation on Barack Obama’s ignorance of judicial review.

I’m sure that the title will infuriate random progressive passers-by – their self-image takes a real hit from being reminded that they backed a nincompoop, bless their hearts – but I mostly expressed it that way to make sure that people understood the background, which I’m not really all that interested in recapitulating.  I mostly just wanted to point out that the hidden lesson from the last few weeks is this: Barack Obama does not handle surprise well, and one major way that he expresses that surprise is by saying stupid things that his handlers then have to try to spin away over the course of the next week.  Better and better: Barack Obama gets very, very petulant when he has to do things like that.

Please note this, ye campaign operatives.  It’s important.

PS: We will now pause while people complain about how of course the Republicans will never, ever take advantage of this, or anything else.  The management would like to take this time to congratulate you on your identification of the basic (hypothetical) problem, as well as to cordially invite you to go out and actually do something about it.  Because the cavalry ain’t coming over the hill to save you, folks; in fact, you’re the cavalry.  And you are perfectly capable of saving yourself.

    If this is true, then the debates will be the place to exploit it. Give Romney a few tings to say to get Obama off message, then, voila!

    So how do we put Brad Watson of WFAA’s name in the hat as moderator? (I had to use The Google to remember his name, but I do remember the interview…)

  • Murgatroyd says:

    I would like to see a moderator in the presidential debates ask a question of the Greatest Constitutional Scholar Everrr:

    “President Obama, would you please name the first six rights of the people guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, and tell us what your administration is doing to safeguard them?”

    Frankly, I’d be quite surprised if he could name the five rights guaranteed by the First Amendment off the top of his head.
