Posted on 01/18/2011 1:35:23 PM PST by EBH
Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito said, I doubt that I will be there in January.
We have to sit there like the proverbial potted plant, Alito said, and provoked howls of laughter from the crowd when he deadpanned that the justices who are more disciplined refrain from manifesting any emotional opinion whatsoever.
It was a self-deprecating remark; in January, as he sat near the podium during Obamas speech in the Capitol, Justice Alito was affronted by the presidents charge that the Supreme Court reversed a century of law that I believe will open the floodgates for special interests, including foreign corporations, to spend without limit in our elections.
Videotape of the event shows Alito wincing, then apparently saying, thats simply not true. Directly behind Alito, Senate Majority Whip Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Senate Democratic Caucus vice chairman Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., the second and third ranking Democrats in the Senate, gleefully took to their feet and cheered as Alito and the five other justices in attendance remained seated, looking uncomfortably intimidated.

Good for him! I really like Alito.
Countdown to Alito being called a racist 3...2...1
It would sure be nice if Mr. Thomas et al quit “evading” a certain question too.
Libs have won this one. I think he should go there and fight. Say “you lie” or “your illegal President” or whatever, but don’t be cowardly.
I’m sure he’ll have other more important things to do instead of being insulted by the Pres__ent.
Like re-arranging his sock drawer.
Good for Justice Alito!
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list

What exactly will that accomplish? Truth and courage will do nothing to sway the evil demented subhumans known as leftists.
We are far past the point of defeated left wing corruption and stupidity through civilized means.
Please note this is OLD NEWS. LOL.
The R&D seating arrangements are meant to be a distraction from the bigger snub going to happen...
Then there was Slick Willie’s 2000 SOTU Address which the entire USSC boycotted.
Good for him!!!!!! I won’t be watching the Obo neither. Can’t stand listening to him.
I mean if the guy isn't constitutionally qualified to be the president, why would Alito attend a SOTU speech by someone who's not president?
He swore him in.
Let no bad deed remain so............
I wish he’d attend wearing an OBAMA t-shirt over his robe - one that said “One Big Ass Mistake America.”
Well staying home isn’t the answer. It never has been.
Justice Alito is doing exactly the right thing.
That is fine. I believe the liberals believe that too.
How can you answer yes to question #1 and ignore question #2?
Wait, Roberts swore in abamao....
Good for Alito. This highlights Obama’s lack of civility at an opportune time.
I think the republicans should sit in the back of the room. You know, all “back of the bus”.
**We are far past the point of defeated left wing corruption and stupidity through civilized means.**
Am so happy to know that he will not attend.
Hope he sticks to his earlier decision.
>> The R&D seating arrangements are meant to be a distraction from the bigger snub going to happen...
Then he could walk out.
First of all, the republicans would have to get some courage somewhere.
Second....I guess there is no “second”.
That’s the job of the electoral college...
Excellent! A man who says what he means and means what he says!
Why listen to iWon. Ipecac is readily available.
“Good for him! I really like Alito.”
Gotta like him after he says stuff like that.
None of them should attend.
“I think he should go there and fight. Say you lie or your illegal President or whatever, but dont be cowardly.”
Uh, can you spell “impeached”?
Why is it cowardly? The justices have nothing to say or do. Neither does congress for that matter. Bambi has sullied the Presidency and the state of the union speech will be nothing but dirty lies told by the _resident. Why should the justices (or even republican congressmen) lend their own credibility to that lie fest. If I were a congressman the only event for Bambi that I would attend is an impeachment.
Alito’s a good man - we were blessed when he joined the Court.
I don’t blame him. Good!
President Obama Plans First Post State of the Union Trip to Wisconsin...

I won’t be watching the SOTU to know whether Alito will be there or not. I am already sad and mad enough about the state of the Republic; I don’t need to hear more statist plans from 0bama.
I appreciate what he did last year for sure!
I’m happy he won’t be at the “love-in”.
However, isn’t one of the members of the SCOTUS supposed to be absent in case something happens?
Or, maybe I’m thinking of something else.
Now MY link works, but yours doesn’t.
It’s a FOX Conspiracy, I tells ya! A CONSPIRACY! :)
Either way, this guy just needs to stay in his office for one solid week and get some actual work done!
I kind of like seeing Justice Alito shake his head and mouth the words "No" to the things BO has to say. I'll miss that.
During the 1960s I personally witnessed several new Mommies coming in to ship their cars back to Hawaii (via Matson Lines http://www.Matson.com ) shortly after their giving birth elsewhere, inside or outside the Mainland United States.
These new Mommies were told by other Mommies present to just go to the Honolulu Officals and proclaim that thier newborns were born in Hawaii and a Birth Certificate showing so would be automatically produced.
It was THAT commonplace ..and well known about by many.. back then..!!!
This was during a 9-10 year window after Hawaiian Statehood when they could get away with it.
another man with the courage of his convictions.... they are so rare in politics...
