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?

At least they didn’t use the excuse that he was speaking in Ebonics.

In other words, “You peons need to learn how to speak Emperor or you’ll never understand the superior language of our leader.”

Cool! 'Way back in the days before the rampant popularity of dictating machines and personal computers, I learned Gregg shorthand and used it in my first couple of jobs. I know shorthand, and Mr. Obama, I can speak from experience that what you babbled was not shorthand.

I suspect the only law they’re learning is how to get around the laws that are on the books.

"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."

That's interesting. I can see that now. My takeaway was how heavily he leaned on the weak 'presumed constitutionality' in legislation.

But the real sub rosa fear that he's transmitting, is that an Obamacare overturn draws the line (and perhaps the curtain) on the wretched supraconstitutional abuse the Commerce Clause has suffered at the hands of Leftists desperate to shackle the US to the chains of Eurosocialism.

LOL...thanks for the transcript in Shorthand. I know you can write in shorthand, but I never heard anyone speak in shorthand. That is so ridiculous. Shorthand is not a language. Obama spoke in abject disdain and nonsense. But...

More Obama excuses:

To say what he means is above his pay grade.

Only Republicans misunderstood him.

The Long Run
Teaching Law, Testing Ideas, Obama Stood Slightly Apart

EXCERPT:

At the school, Mr. Obama taught three courses, ascending to senior lecturer, a title otherwise carried only by a few federal judges. His most traditional course was in the due process and equal protection areas of constitutional law. His voting rights class traced the evolution of election law, from the disenfranchisement of blacks to contemporary debates over districting and campaign finance. Mr. Obama was so interested in the subject that he helped Richard Pildes, a professor at New York University, develop a leading casebook in the field.

His most original course, a historical and political seminar as much as a legal one, was on racism and law. Mr. Obama improvised his own textbook, including classic cases like Brown v. Board of Education, and essays by Frederick Douglass, W. E. B. Dubois, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, as well as conservative thinkers like Robert H. Bork.

Mr. Obama was especially eager for his charges to understand the horrors of the past, students say. He assigned a 1919 catalog of lynching victims, including some who were first raped or stripped of their ears and fingers, others who were pregnant or lynched with their children, and some whose charred bodies were sold off, bone fragment by bone fragment, to gawkers.

“Are there legal remedies that alleviate not just existing racism, but racism from the past?” Adam Gross, now a public interest lawyer in Chicago, wrote in his class notes in April 1994.

I don’t think any judges and attorneys understood his shorthand, either.

I bet Mooshelle didn’t understand it.

"Mr. Obama improvised his own textbook"

Oh Lord. If you saw that in syllabus from a little-known non-tenure track guy, you'd avoid it like the plague. I question the wisdom and the sanity of any U of C doofus willingly taking that class while shoveling out 35K a year back then...
