Dissing Judicial Activism

Here is an entry for the "more important for who said it than what was said" file. The following observation is not at all new, and it normally would not be news that someone

has spoken disparagingly about liberal victories before the Supreme Court in the 1960s and 1970s -- suggesting that justices made the "error" of overstepping their bounds and trampling on the role of elected officials.

What is newsworthy is that this was said by ...
President Obama. Charlie Savage and Sheryl Gay Stolberg have this story in the NYT.


O.T.: But, do you think the Court will finally address Skinner to day? How common is it to continue a case that many times? Carty is also on for conference today, which should be interesting.

Two relistings is not too unusual.
