Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) on Tuesday accused President Obama of “threatening” the Supreme Court as it prepares a ruling on the constitutionality of the healthcare reform law.
Speaking a day after Obama warned against “unelected” judges overturning the law, Johanns said Obama crossed the line with his remarks.
“What President Obama is doing here isn’t right,” Johanns said Tuesday in an interview with local Nebraska radio station KLIN. “It is threatening, it is intimidating.”
Seven more months of “But he’s The Uppity Kenyan Colonialist Gangsta Thug! Hide your nubile daughters!” is going to be awesome like a migraine surrounded by smaller autonomous migraines. Then again, it’s not like Republicans can run on issues or anything, so the full court press on BLOOGITY BLOO HE’S BLACK is pretty much their entire hand at this point.
I for one think people would remember 15 months of this in 2007-2008 not working, but it really hasn’t stopped these guys from regularly visiting the dog whistle factory, ordering crates of dog whistles, melting them down into slag and then using the slag to paint HE’S BLACK in 50 foot tall letters on the side of every skyscraper in America as a stimulus project.
I swear if the President ever gave anyone the side-eye, there would be Articles of Banishment to the Phantom Zone before the end of the day.
