66. Then perhaps Obama should have spent his 10-15 minutes of air time
explaining the "war" is about preserving the constitutional, rule of law and thoughtful judiciary instead of what he wasted his time saying. Do you think?

He should have talked about the 10 year old girl who was strip searched and ScAlito said it was fine and dandy. He should have talked about the 15 year old boy who was shot in the back of the head by cops and ScAlito said was it fine and dandy. He should should have talked about the mentally disabled man who was gang raped with a broom handle and ScAlito said it was fine and dandy. THAT is the stuff he should have been throwing out across the airwaves today.

I wouldn't be surprised if Obama has heard from more than a few Democrats today after his appearance today.

The LAST THING WE NEEDED right now was for a Democrat to toss out a snarky remark about the filibuster. We get enough of that shit from the repukes.
