Krauthammer reacts to Chief Justice Roberts response to Obama going after the Supreme Court as they sat in front of him at the State of the Union, "It was a break of protocol and decorum, and it was an insult. You sit there and you don't expect to be attacked as the court was...I hope that next year there are nine empty seats at the State of the Union Address, that would be the appropriate

Sonia will go- she sat there looking like Jabba the Hut on downers
I’m hoping the main speaker is a no show..
Or they could go and yell you lie at the appropriate times with no remorse! ;-)
I hope the Republicans take the House and Senate in the November elections and I don’t have to see Jack-in-the Box Nancy applauding Barry....I hope newly elected House Speaker Jim DeMint is sitting behind Barry.........
No, he’s got it wrong. Fill the nine seats and when the usurper opens his trap to speak, get up and walk out. Better yet, figure some way to get the lower courts to investigate his eligibility. Even better, they could wave their BCs as they’re walking out.
Hope we can do it.
Obama and Ried’s actions are so typical of the liberal response to anyone that does not march in lock step with their agenda......attach, criticize, demean, insult.....
I am with Krauthammer....either they don’t go or the get up and walk out when the Orator in chief turns a state of the union into a political campaign speech.....
That was my prediction. Kudos to CJ Roberts.
Justice is supposed to be blind. Having to sit there like lumps on a log for these propaganda dog and pony shows is dumb. Really dumb. And that goes for GOP presidents too. SCOTUS should not be forced to attend these “How Do You Like Me Now” shows. I never watch this SOTU garbage because I don’t appreciate people peeing on my leg and telling me it’s raining.
I tried to keep track of how many times she blinked.
I lost count after three minutes.
Hopefully I will not have to count them next year, but if I do, I am only going to count for one minute and then multiply by how long the speech is.
That might be hard to do, seeing he's in the Senate.
It's not mandatory. After Slick's impeachment, all 9 did not show up. This year, I think a few (3?) of the justices did not attend. I know J. Thomas did not attend. He was quoted later as saying he had stopped attending due to the hyper-partisan atmosphere.
Better yet, I’d like to see a walkout at the beginning of the next SOTU......at least by the Chief Justice.
Obama is the Rabble Rouser in Chief; he is very good at turning people against each other. This in fact is his main strength. The “intellectually superior” Democrats all stood up and hooted like drunks at a football game at Obama’s insulting, divisive words. Reveals the moral low to which they all have sunk. Also reveals the seething hatred the liberals have towards anything they perceive to be conservative. He should be forced to make an apology.
The “wise Latina” will show up.
How about DeMind as Senate leader with Pence as Speaker.
I hope so, too.
At the time, I commented that the speech given was not an SOTU speech, but a campaign speech. Its entire content was inappropriate.
Better YET... how about they actually HEAR an Obama eligibility case, just to put the issue to rest???
Agree, unless the Chicago crook is impeached and we have a different and more intelligent president. Lets hope that wouldn’t be Biden or Pelousy. If the Republicans gain a majority in November it would be John Boehner.
After the criticism they received after the Bush #2 Election #1? I doubt that will happen - they are too scared.
Thanks FRiend. I knew Justice Thomas wasn’t there but I didn’t realize that 3 had taken a pass. I didn’t watch it. That’s a good sign. Next year, I hope they all stay home. Adults shouldn’t have to put up with the nonsense these SOTU Shows have become. From what I’ve read and heard, the last one was like a lost episode of “Pee Wee’s Playhouse”.
They should decline to attend—or walk out when insulted—so should all of the GOP members—or yell crys of “You Lie!” The old rules are gone—lets play things the way the DNC does.
Three did not attend: J. Stevens (dude may be dead; no one has seen him move since 2007); J. Scalia (doubtless pleading sanity); and J. Thomas (better things to do like washing hair).
I'd say at least two more will unattend next year bringing the total to five, unless they declare J. Stevens' corpse ineligible and replace it (odds on the nominee being openly gay?).
OOps....yeah that’s what I meant...LOL....Thanks for the correction....
