President Obama's attack on the United States Supreme Court last night (in the presence of six justices) was presumptuous, beyond brazen and shockingly disrespectful.
In front of the justices themselves, the President moved to politicize the high court. Here's what he said:
"Last week, 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," Obama said. "Well I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, or worse, by foreign entities. They should be decided by the American people, and that’s why I’m urging Democrats and Republicans to pass a bill that helps to right this wrong."

BTW: Senator Chucky ("Grandstander") Schumer stood up just behind the jusitces and applauded wildly in a disgraceful partisan display.
