White House press secretary Jay Carney tells the press corps that President Obama's attack on the Supreme Court was misunderstood because he was speaking in "shorthand" since he is a former professor of law.

Henry: The president is a former constitutional law professor. One of his professors is Laurence Tribe. He now says, in his words, the president “obviously misspoke earlier this week”, quote “he didn’t say what he meant and having said that in order to avoid misleading anyone, he had to clarify it.” I thought yesterday you were saying repeatedly that he did not misspeak. What do you make of the president’s former law professor saying he did?

Barry must have learned shorthand as a student in Indonesia.

To Obama’s goat-like political base, this explanation makes sense.

Funny, I’m not a law student and I understood him completely. Should I sign up for classes?

I’m glad I have one more letter in my last name than Carney does. I’d hate to think we were related.

Wasn’t he really something like an assistant lecturer and never a real Professor?

Shorthand? I couldn’t care less if he was talking semaphores or mutexes... the fact is that he was threatening SCOTUS.

There’s something you have to wonder about. If the President was this well versed on Constitutional law, and actually taught classes in Chicago....how many lawyers in the Chicago region think and practice law in this same manner today? This even makes you wonder if the Columbia Law School is graduating folks left and right like this....and we just haven’t realized it.

He was an instructor, one step above grad student and certainly NOT on tenure track!

I’m calling absolute Bull Hockey on Mumbles and his “shorthand.”

You can tell your illiterati anything you want but just be aware that you are making yourself into the Clown King of America because few are buying it.

Law PROFESSOR my a$$ - he was no more than an arrogant law LECTURER. Let's see his background - come on Barry, unseal them. He never ever received tenure.

No..his official title was “senior lecturer”. Whatever the hell that is...but it ain’t no REAL teacher :)

"What they'll say is, 'Well it costs too much money,' but you know what? It would cost, about.

It it would cost about the same as what we would spend. It. Over the course of 10 years it would cost what it would costs us.

All right. Okay. We're going to do it. It would cost us about the same as it would cost for about hold on one second. I can't hear myself. But I'm glad you're fired up, though. I'm glad. "

~Barack Obama

I think they meant to say he spoke in UNDER HAND.

This is another version of the “Kerry is nuanced” excuse. Leftists never admit to being stupid, and they never learn to stop it.

Carney needs to STFU ... I understood exactly what Obambi was saying to the Supreme Court Justices. It was a threat.

I'd say the idiot was losing his credibility but just working for Obambi makes him a loser.

He is not a “former law professor.” He was an adjunct instructor, without tenure, never had more than a yearly contract, and he never published ANYTHING.

That’s presumably why Fr. Jenkins at Notre Dame gave him an Honorary Doctor of Law degree—because he never accomplished anything at all as an adjunct, and gave up his license to practice law.

No, I’m afraid Fr. Jenkins admired him because he is a baby killer.
