    That's a bit amusing:

    Apparently he wrote his ruling against the law with the assumption that 1) it would halt implementation, 2) it would immediately result in a stay being issued by someone else, resuming implementation, with the ultimate practical result that 3) implementation would never actually cease.

    Since, to his annoyance, that didn't happen, he granted the administration a stay of his ruling today without them asking him for one. So nothing has changed, except the handful of governors who wanted to use Vinson's decision as cover for ceasing implementation (some of them in contradiction to independent legal opinions offered by their state governments) no longer have that cover.

    I can't believe a federal judge is so ignorant that he thought the determination of one district court would automatically stay the implementation of a federal law.

    He does seem a bit bewildered in his "clarification" by what the implications of his ruling out to be.

    Whatever the case? He gave Obama 7 days...or face a huge problem.

    He is holding Obama in contempt. The judge is pissed.

    What an interesting interpretation of the facts.

    He issued his ruling, and the government demands a clarification, arguing that it would be impossible to follow his ruling because he was not clear about what is, and is not, permitted. He then issues the clarification, and also gives the government 7 days to appeal before they are required to cease and desist.

    How exactly did you follow that train of logic to the leap that he expected someone else to issue a stay? Or that he is annoyed because the government did not immediately listen to him?

    It took the government weeks to ask for clarification?
