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?

That is an excellent point. Perhaps that is why he uses the teleprompter. He is just about incoherent when he speaks without one.

An adjunct teacher. Someone who is familiar with the basis of the course enough that he can’t screw up the entire context. Unless he tries.

If this were a scene in a comedy I'd laugh my ass off! It's worse than the meaning of "is."

A Reporter needs to ask Carney if he knows of any other instances where the "Law Professor" has spoken in shorthand as President?

You can't fix STUPID!

Shorthand? I’ve got a long-fingered response for you, Zero.

See John 8:44 for a reference to his “native language”.

I think we may finally have evidence of what happened to “Bagdad Bob” - hell of a plastic surgery job, you gotta admit.

Everyone really needs to stop referring to Obama as a former Constitutional Law prof. Con Law (ok, maybe he taught “ConLaw” in a different sense) is a brutally difficult first year class in most law schools.

Obama taught three upper-class electives: Voting Rights, Equal Protection/Due Process, and Race and the Law.

Which have NOTHING in common with the real thing, or the intellectual firepower of professors who actually teach the real thing.

Obama isn’t a lawyer any more either. And, neither is his wife. No reasons given for them not renewing their lawyer licenses either. Another Obamaism that stinks.

Never learned that “shorthand” in my ConLaw class, but I didn’t go to Harvard Law. They’re smarter there, I hear (from them).

Sure, you’re laughing, but are you laughing in shorthand?

I predict Obama’s press tot will soon be gone. When they can no longer maintain the corners of their smirks in an upright position, they’re lookin’ for the exits.
