The Washington Post is out today with an editorial lauding the wisdom of the President for toning down his recent criticism of the Supreme Court, which include his horror that “an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law,” which would be “an unprecedented, extraordinary step.”
It is both predictable and incomprehensible that the Bought and Paid For Media (BAPFM) has not pounced on the President's earlier words. Yes--they have reported them, and they have in some cases editorialized against them--but can you imagine the absolute storm of criticism that would have burst forth if GWB had uttered words like the President had? The vitriol that would have accompanied the reaction from the Press had Sarah Palin spoken like the President? Any relatively conscious high school junior should be familiar with the concept of judicial review and the role and power of the Supreme Court in our system of checks and balances.
That Mr. Obama lacked the experience and competence for the job of President was known to many of us and has been borne out by events. That he was unqualified for the role of Constitutional Law Professor (a job he has also held) can now be surmised.
