For a sitting president to make a scene in the way that Obama did was unprofessional at best, and at worst, jeapordized the delicate checks and balances that exist between the executive branch and the judicial branch of government. The blatant double-standard that exists could never be more evident than when Joe Wilson shouted "liar" and was immediately denounced, demonized, vilified, and trashed by the liberal media and by nearly ALL of the talking heads in Washington. Then, Obama turns around and does WORSE by not only calling the Supreme Court names, but actually questioning their integrity. . . and nothing is said in the media!!! Media bias has gone completely off the cliff in favor of the liberal viewpoint. While I have not always agreed with Supreme Court decisions, there is a civil way to approach that disagreement. What Obama did . . . if it had been done in 1810 or 1910 instead of 2010. . . would probably have resulted in a fistfight, or a duel. There is a right way and a wrong way in a public discourse, especially during a "State of the Union Address," to disagree and still be civil. Obama shredded civility and caused irrepairable bad feelings between the two branches of government. This will not be corrected during this administration unless and until Obama makes a public apology. But, that will never happen. He's too busy apologizing for all the GOOD this nation did to know the difference. And so, for the forseeable future, don't expect the United States Supreme Court to EVER attend another of Obama's "state of the union" addresses. . . . won't happen. . . and I can't blame them. I wouldn't sit there and take that kind of abuse either. There is something called "fighting speech" that entitles, at least in the mind of a jury in a court of law, taking action against the perpetrator of such speech. Obama may have crossed that line.
