There was another “you lie” moment during Obama’s address, did you hear it, well maybe you didn’t – but thanks to CNN’s instant replay, it was clear for all to see. Here’s the context. In an unusual tactic in a State of the Union address, President Obama criticized a recent Supreme Court ruling, in front of the members of the court, who had front row seats. Bold. Axis: Bold As Love..I digress. What was even more unusual was the display of emotion that came from an Associate Justice- Justice Samuel Alito, known to be a competitive debater…check out Resolved, if you haven’t seen it already, but I digress again. Alito whispered, “that’s not right” after Obama opined that the ruling “will open the floodgates for special interests, including foreign corporations, to spend without limit in our elections.” A frightening thought.
