OMG the NYT SUCKS: White House Spars With the Chief Justice - The Caucus Blog -

I can't read this without screaming. Really.

The NYT gets away with this crap I guess because their core readers are uninformed and uninterested in any truth or fact that might interfere with the opinions brought on by their worldview. Of course I'm talking about the editors.

Anyway... get out your shovel...

The White House is hitting back against criticism from Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. on Tuesday, when he complained about the political scene surrounding the State of the Union speech when President Obama criticized aSupreme Court decision on campaign financing.Mr. Roberts told a University of Alabama audience that the setting at the joint session of Congress degenerated into a pep rally, which he found “very troubling.” Mr. Obama had directly singled out a recent ruling, known as Citizens United, that lifted restrictions on corporations and unions for election communications.

The White House press secretary, Robert Gibbs, fired back: “What is troubling is that this decision opened the floodgates for corporations and special interests to pour money into elections – drowning out the voices of average Americans. The president has long been committed to reducing the undue influence of special interests and their lobbyists over government. That is why he spoke out to condemn the decision and is working with Congress on a legislative response to close this loophole.”

Hey liar... this is what Bambi said:

“"With all due deference to the separation of powers the Supreme Court reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in our elections.”

Note the word "foreign" in there? Nice of you to cut out that L-I-E this time around, which Alito was correct to disagree with.

I love how later on in this article it states:

Most of the Supreme Court justices were in attendance that evening, and Mr. Obama’s rebuke was particularly noteworthy. It escalated with Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. breaking with decorum at such events, by shaking his head and appearing to mouth the words, “No, it’s not true.”

Oh... so Alito broke with decorum. Really. This is how Chief Justice Roberts put it (not to mention the millions who witnessed it):

During his remarks in Tuscaloosa on Tuesday, Mr. Roberts said he was not sure that justices should attend the annual speech. “The image of having the members of one branch of government standing up, literally surrounding the Supreme Court, cheering and hollering while the court — according to the requirements of protocol — has to sit there expressionless, I think is very troubling.”

At least the New York Times finally has a bunch in the White House that it can relate to... churlish, classless, truthless.
