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?

To Obama’s goat-like political base, this explanation makes sense.
As Charlie Chan use to say.............’’Ahhhhhhhh very interesting #1 son’’
More Male Bovine Waste from the White House. What silly elitist crap!
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.
If Obama is a Law Professor I am Miss America.
“He was an instructor, one step above grad student and certainly NOT on tenure track!”
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. "
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.
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.
I love the smell of napalm’d
Press Secretaries in the morning
I wouldn’t have his job for nuthin’
F U B O
He is just GAY.....effeminate men often use the middle finger like this.
Exactly. Nice resume enhancement...aka total BS, on the part of the Regime...
Please, we are not stupid.
But it does appear that 0bama does not even know ‘shorthand.’ For how he spoke, one might just call him a traitor. For his threat reveals his intention to break his oath of office and undermine judicial authority.
Now does the DOJ have their 3 page, single spaced dissertation ready?
I think it means that he should speak to the hand.
I guess his best obamacare lawyer was speaking in “shorthand” with the court last week as well.
I have a good idea what obama and his goons can do with their “shorthand”.
You can teach them.
These people think we are really dumb.
Put it this way, there is no proof that he was ever anything but an assistant.
They are counting on it.
I’m declaring myself a Law Professor. The second greatest to ever live. Of course, we know who the greatest ever was.
Otherwise, Don’t worry about my grades, or if I have a Birth Cirtificate, or even a ID.
(that is pitman shorthand for ROFLMAO)
Obama’s book was in “shorthand”, something like:
“Ahhh....Bill, Um, yah send me a first draft autobiography when you get a chance -ttyl. Go Che!”
How do you speak in shorthand?
Don’t the squiggles get stuck on your tongue?
It seems that Obama is saying that the personal mandate is a “political issue or question”, that the issue constitutionally should be resolved by branches of the government other than the Court. It has been argued recently in reapportionment cases and Nixon vs US (1995), but not successfully.
His class in election law was pretty small potatoes, just another undemanding elective to fill up students' schedules.
They would have learned what they needed to know to practice law from other teachers who presumably knew what they were talking about.
He's just a skinny little twerp ass, rump swab on a power trip.
Keep digging, Jay; with all that manure there’s just GOTTA be a jackass in there somewhere.
Did anyone click over to the other video? The Press Corp is actually laughing at him trying to answer questions about this...
I can see Obama giving you the middle finger in return, saying it means, "Bless you, my son."
“But it does appear that 0bama does not even know shorthand. For how he spoke, one might just call him a traitor. For his threat reveals his intention to break his oath of office and undermine judicial authority.”
Obama only speaks well when speaking Arabic; I wouldn’t call the teleprompter thing “speaking” as much as “reading aloud”.
yes, you are right.
That is the most absurd thing I have ever heard. After bill clinton, we all understand political ‘shorthand’...democrat AND republican.
This astard said what he meant and meant what he said.
Not if its “Marxist Shorthand”. Then they get shoved up otherwise discrete areas.
These idiots think they are so smart to think they can talk around the issue while discussing the very issue. The court smacked his lackey over it and he decided to dump and sit on the excrement he intends.
Duh, no wonder me no understand. Obama speak in shorthand. Obama use big words. He so smart. Americans so dumb. What an elitist POS!
