The Shuster/Breitbart Blowup on MSNBC

#1 – Why invite a guy onto your show “to make his case” if you’re not willing to let him get a word in edgewise?

#2 – Isn’t Shuster supposed to be an objective journalist?

#3 – Hey, isn’t Shuster the same maroon who was wondering last week, if there were an equal number of pro-choicers at the big pro life march in Washington, when the actual ratio was approximately 350,000 to 5?

Correction: Oops, that was CNN’s Rick Sanchez. Why do I get those two confused? (That was a rhetorical question).

#4 Shuster’s a schmuck.

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.”


Video: Jack Cashill on the Media’s Malpractice (Again) At March For Life

Watch this, and you’ll find your emotions running the gamut from blood boiling anger at the disgraceful MSM’s fraudulent coverage, to being moved to tears by a young pro-lifer’s witness:

More than any other event, the march showed the eye-popping and mind boggling corruption of the MSM.

Here is Cashill’s post at the American Thinker on the Impressive Media Malpractice at March For Life.

Krauthamer On Obama’s SOTU Speech: No Pivot, “Tone Was Strained and Unctuous”

How thrilled the Democrats must be tonight, knowing that the President is refusing to pivot like Bill Clinton did in ’94-(hey, they didn’t have him, back  then, right?) So he’s doubling down on the very policies that are killing their electoral chances in the fall.

Here’s Alito shaking his head, and mouthing the words, “not true” during the campaign finance demagoguery, which is being called Alito’s “You lie” moment.

And ZZZZZZZZZ, I’m happy to see that I wasn’t the only one bored to tears.

Bradley Smith at the Corner: President Wrong on Citizens United Case

Tonight the president engaged in demogoguery of the worst kind, when he claimed that last week’s Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v. FEC, “open[ed] the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in our elections. Well I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, or worse, by foreign entities.”

He says, ‘This is either blithering ignorance of the law, or demogoguery of the worst kind”. I think it’s the second one. Really, Obama doesn’t seem to have an honest bone in his body.

Kevin McCullough- Obama’s Sorry State of the Union Speech

President Obama’s State of the Union address was an incoherent, disorganized, and most regrettably defiant, mess of a speech.

The AP fact-checks the speech


FROM JUSTICE ALITO, a “you lie” moment? “POLITICO’s Kasie Hunt, who’s in the House chamber, reports that Justice Samuel Alito mouthed the words ‘not true’ when President Barack Obama criticized the Supreme Court’s campaign finance decision.” Drudge is calling Obama’s criticism “intimidation,” but apparently, they weren’t so intimidated. As I said before, Obama’s behavior wasn’t very Presidential, and it wasn’t very wise.

UPDATE: Brad Smith: “The president’s statement is false.”

And from Prof. Randy Barnett:

In the history of the State of the Union has any President ever called out the Supreme Court by name, and egged on the Congress to jeer a Supreme Court decision, while the Justices were seated politely before him surrounded by hundreds [of] Congressmen? To call upon the Congress to countermand (somehow) by statute a constitutional decision, indeed a decision applying the First Amendment? What can this possibly accomplish besides alienating Justice Kennedy who wrote the opinion being attacked. Contrary to what we heard during the last administration, the Court may certainly be the object of presidential criticism without posing any threat to its independence. But this was a truly shocking lack of decorum and disrespect towards the Supreme Court for which an apology is in order. A new tone indeed.

It was what we have come to expect from this President. I wonder what the polls are going to say in the coming days?

Oh, and here’s an awfully cute video by NRO’s Jim Geraghty,( I swiped from Insty):

Wow –NRO’s Rich Lowery went dumpster diving at Daily Kos?

They’re laughing at the seating arrangement for the “tea bagging” Republican response by Governor McDonald, because there’s no such thing as black or Asian Republicans, apparently, so the seating chart  “must have been six months in the making”.

The white woman is Janet Polarek—Secretary of the Commonwealth

Above her is Jim Cheng—Secretary of Commerce and Trade

The soldier is Staff Sargeant Robert Tenpenny, who served with Jeanine McDonnell in Iraq.

Above him is Lisa Hick-Thomas—Secretary of Administration

The Secretaries are all McDonnell Cabinet members.


Nile Gardiner: State of the Union: Barack Obama gets an F for world leadership

And denizens of the Demonic Underground, (safe  link) are still high on the hopium:

You just have to say thank God this man is the president

After 8 years of being ashamed to be an American, it is good to have a president that America can be proud of once again.

This President is not a man, he is God himself
If you don’t see that then you are blind.

Wow…What a GREAT Speech. His BEST EVER!!!

He just kept nailing it. I’m amazed at how he packed in so much good stuff into one speech.

Okaaaay…those people aren’t normal.

Don Surber: Obama will not be re-elected:

Tonight’s State of the Union address is the least important one since Richard Nixon’s in 1974. The State of the Union address was delivered 8 days ago by the voters of Massachusetts. They killed the centerpiece of Barack Obama’s presidency and without his health care plan, he is nothing.

There is nothing President Obama can say or do tonight that could save his presidency. It is over. He is through. It lasted exactly 365 days. The one year president.

The stench of political death permeates from him. Soon, he will be mocked as his irrelevancy becomes more and more apparent by the week, by the day and eventually by the hour.

Already George Soros has walked out on him.


Read the whole thing…it’s pretty harsh.
