Sen. Russ Feingold: Samuel Alito behavior 'inappropriate'
Politico ^ | 1/28/10 | MANU RAJU

Posted on 01/28/2010 2:53:55 PM PST by blueyon

Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) sharply criticized Samuel Alito's reaction to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address, calling the conservative Supreme Court justice’s behavior “inappropriate.”

During last night's address, Obama took aim at the Supreme Court's decision to gut campaign finance restrictions for corporations and labor unions. While Supreme Court justices typically maintain stoic dispositions during State of the Union addresses, Alito, who joined the 5-4 opinion, appeared to mouth the words “not true” as Obama spoke.

"That's not very judicial of him," Feingold told POLITICO. "Apparently, he thinks he gets to make the law. He should maintain his judicial demeanor, and that was inappropriate."

Well look, Finegold is the moron who worked with McCain to get this unconstitutional piece of legislation passed. Why would ANYONE care what his reaction was?

He didn’t say “You lie”. He should have but he didn’t. She said “that’s not true”. Barry the Marxist Kenyan got off easy. I wish he would have gone Joe Wilson on Barry Soetoro’s as*.

What a pathetic little bitch Feingold is.

You want to talk about “inappropriate”, how about the Punk In Chief insulting the court members in his “State Of The Revolution” address!

Piss off, Russ!

"Apparently, he thinks he gets to make the law."

And you, Sen. Feingold, apparently think your law trumps the Constitution of the United States.

We have Supreme Court justices like Alito for the specific purpose of protecting our nation from the likes of you. No wonder you're mad at him.

Obama told a lie on top of everything about the ruling that even the NY Times said was wrong but Feingold goes after Justice Alito.

Time for Feingold to hit the umemployment line.

No dumbass, that's not what he thinks at all.

You, as a legislator, get to make the law. But the law that you make doesn't get to abridge the first amendment.

And when it does, it is Alito's duty to his office to invalidate your law. Got it?

FeinClod takes a cheap shot.

The camera switched at the moment Obama made his lying comment of the SCOTUS decision to record the SCOTUS judges to catch any reaction. Alito's body reaction and his comment was not said to anyone but himself.

Reminiscent of the FDR days when he attacked the Supreme court because they were for the Constitution and not for FDR’s Facist agenda.

“Sen. Russ Feingold: Samuel Alito behavior ‘inappropriate’”

I agree, Alito’s behavior was inappropriate.
Inappropriately polite.

He should’ve stuck out a middle finger and whipped out a pocket copy of the Constitution.

I suspect Fiengold is just a little miffed that the SCOTUS has ruled on his namesake and found it unconstitutional. What is sad is that Obama, a lawyer himself, does not understand the ruling, yet he has opined on it. Too many fools, too few to call them out on it.

Sen. Russ Feingold: Samuel Alito behavior ‘inappropriate’

Note how the headline refers to Feingold with his honorific “Senator,” but SUPREME COURT JUSTICE Alito is referred to
as Samuel Alito.

Geez, suprised they didn’t nickname him Sammy-boy. How’s it going, Russ?

Incredible.
