    For the one or two people who think Obama didn't say what he said.

    In as much as he mispoke in the incident where one of his buddy Gates was arrested...and the law acted stupidly.

    Obama has an established pattern.

    What we got:

    The president addressed his comments Tuesday. “The point I was making,” Mr. Obama said at a luncheon with reporters and editors, “is that the Supreme Court is the final say on our Constitution and our laws, and all of us have to respect it, but it’s precisely because of that extraordinary power that the Court has traditionally exercised significant restraint and deference to our duly elected legislature, our Congress.” ~ above article

    What we should have gotten:

    I'm sorry, I was upset about Obamacare's future in the hands of the Supreme Court, but will honor whatever their decision is.

    It's not like the Supremes didn't make a bad ruling ever.

    Exactly.

    I think "conservatives" are pissed because Obama had a human moment.

    If you consider a crazed omnipotent moment combined with a misrepresentation of our Constutional government, then yes you are correct.

    It's quite possible he did misspeak. He does it quite often. Im more than willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Though I still think he's completely wrong if he thinks it's unprecedented.

    What's the issue then? Criticizing the crows? Oh, boo hoo hoo. They are nothing lately but partisan hacks.
