If I had to guess the meaning of this word, I would have said that Obama has tried to reify himself........make himself king. Nonetheless, his narcissistic writing of two memoirs before middle age also strikes me as an attempt to reify himself, in trying to give a concrete existence to something that is little more than smoke and shadows.

DOJ is being required to reify their position on the rights of the federal judiciary to overturn unconstitutional laws by squaring it up with Obams commentary of the previous day. I listened to the oral argument and the DOJ atty remained poised.
Of course, no one in my ofc had heard of this until i brought it to their attention bc the nitwits watch the MSM and it clearly isn’t getting the same sort of PLAY there!

Obama calls out the courts and gets this response and the MSM isn’t covering this? Astounding. This is one of the biggest things to happen in years, they covered the making of this law, but not the dismantling? Do they think if they ignore it it it isn’t happening? A++

I hope they have a special section on how having to use the budget reconciliation process makes the case for the act having strong support. LOL

Ah... reify, or reification...

Did we all read MoDowd’s screed du jour?

The comments section is an interesting journey into a land of delusion, where the SCOTUS needs to be impeached for repeated abuses starting with the stolen election of 2000.

Reify

His comments were ify to start with and now they’s REify. Not real sure what that means either but some words are like the barking of a mad dog...you don't have to know exactly what the meaning of every word is to know what is being said.

And apparently police are now allowed to strip search anybody and any time for any or no reason. Was this just news this week? I’m assuming the leftists at the Times are blowing something completely out of proportion.

is that on the Obama’s declaring martial law thread? [as opposed to when he declares MARITAL law or when he orders everyone to shop at MARSHALLS which is my personal fave ; )]

I’ve wondered if Obama’s (and the left’s) constant lying about the Kennedy decision in Citizens United won’t make Kenendy more likely to strike down Obamacare.

LMAO Nice distraction from real news, but there have always been women, and men for that matter, with inflated egos. Her 15 minutes of infamy are OVER. Sammy, dear, go put some more age defying lotion on our face.

Winning comment from the comments following the article:

“This chick thinks she’s “beautiful.” Obama thinks he’s “intelligent.” Perhaps Samantha Brick needs a Nobel Peace Prize, as well.

No, a lot of the NYTimes comments mention some horrible SCOTUS decision about strip searches. I don’t know what they’re talking about.

I want to reify yesterday’s election and put Santorum in the lead in Wisconsin. All the headlines keep stating that Romney won NARROWLY. However, I live in one of the 2 most conservative counties in WI, and Romney SLAUGHTERED Santorum almost 3:1.

On local news, I helped get a friend and her cohort elected to the school board, but the 3rd member of her “reform” ticket was defeated. So, 2 out of 7 votes on that board belong to the reformers. On other news, 2 fine incumbants were kicked off of the County Board. I’m afraid that that board has taken a sharp turn to the left.

I’m so discouraged.

Sunny and 80 here-and I’m getting info sent to me via e-mail on water conservtion for that bid-

Obama’s dupes are scrambling
To reify each ill-advised word-
So far all they’ve managed is
What was said isn’t what you heard

The judiciary is really fuming
And rightfully so-they should
Call the idiots out on this-
Nothing they do is good

They really should go back and read
Why these rules were put in place-
They exist to keep mob tactics
Out of every judge’s face

Our community leader in chief plans to lead that mob if he doesn’t get his way. I think the people will support their judges over theO if it comes to that. He wants to run against the SCOTUS, let him. A+++

Thank you! Even Bill Cliunton had better sense than that-this idiot is a lawyer who doesn’t even know what “judicial activism” is.
