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?

Mr. Carney...

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”.

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

Put it this way, there is no proof that he was ever anything but an assistant.

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.

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.
