    State of the Union: President Obama, Justice Alito and Political Theater - ABC News


    Harding, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Reagan were the only three who really took aim at the Court specifically -- Harding to advocate the repeal of court decisions outlawing child labor in America (really); FDR to pressure the court to get out of the way of the New Deal; and Reagan to urge the passage of a constitutional amendment allowing school prayer.

    Hoover (who did just what you guys want Obama to do) wanted to preserve child labor for the corps.

    Reagan who wanted to distroy the separation of church and state part of the constitution.

    FDR who was trying to get the American people needed services which Americans to this day still love.

    FDR, to bully the court into approving his socialistic programs, which were flat out stolen from Eugene Debs.

    Authoritarians of a feather....

    The President played politics with the Supreme Court. He did it with all three branches of government present. It was out of line completely. The Justices should have quietly risen and left the speech.

    Try to follow this. The three cited Presidents were advocating a position they would like the court to pursue. Obama was critical of an actual decision. I happen to agree with the President's position. The disagreement comes with when and where he chose to make the statement.

    When the president criticizes Congress, should they bamboozle too?

    Three separate but co-equal branches of government...
