Law Professor:“I’m willing to bet a lot of money there will be no Supreme Court justice at the next State of the Union speech.”

I searched in vain for this story, earlier today, after Mr. Nice Deb told me he had heard on the radio something to the effect that no Supremes would show up at an Obama SOTU ever again…I was intrigued.

Several hours later, The Daily Caller delivers:

A noted Supreme Court historian who “enthusiastically” voted for President Obama in November 2008 today called President Obama’s criticism of the Supreme Court in his State of the Union address last night “really unusual” and said he wouldn’t be surprised if no Supreme Court Justices attend the speech next year.

“It was really unusual in my mind to see the president going after the Supreme Court in such a forum,” said author and Law Professor Lucas Powe, the Anne Green Regents Chair in Law, and a Professor of Government at the University of Texas-Austin School of Law. “I’m willing to bet a lot of money there will be no Supreme Court justice at the next State of the Union speech.”

That is an amazing statement. It’s not exactly what my husband had said he had said, but it’s still pretty amazing, especially in light of the fact that he had “enthusiastically” voted for Obama.

He went on to say that the Justices “don’t go to be insulted.”
