Supreme Court Justice Alito Mouths ‘Not True’ To President Obama

This political media are all over this story. Here’s the Huffington Post’s take on it:

With the Supreme Court Justices sitting right in front of him, President Barack Obama unloaded in his State of the Union address on this past week’s ruling qualifying corporations as having the rights of citizens and opening the “floodgates” to their political donations.

“Last week, the Supreme Court reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests – including foreign corporations – to spend without limit in our elections,” Obama said. “Well I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, or worse, by foreign entities. They should be decided by the American people, and that’s why I’m urging Democrats and Republicans to pass a bill that helps to right this wrong.”

There was some strong applause from members of Congress — with both sides of the chamber rising to their feet with applause. The Justices — all there except Scalia and Thomas — sat in silence (as is their custom), but at the beginning of the exchange, Justice Alito [on the far left] can be seen shaking his head and mouthing words that seem to resemble “not true.”

    Alito is a piece of shit who should never have been confirmed. Or born.

    STFU you asshat Alito. You're going down in history as one of the 5 douchebags who helped further the destruction of our political system from the inside. It's a new ruling and we have yet to see how it plays out in reality but I don't think it takes a political scientist to connect dots as big as these. I hope there's a special place in hell for you along with Bush, Cheney, Wolfowitz, Fleischer, Rumsfeld, Gonzales and the rest of the croneys and crooks you dealt with.

    Douche. People bled and died for 200+ years to achieve this democracy, and this idiot sells it out from under them with one ruling, and then is arrogant enough to think he can spew like a crazy Congressman during the State of the Union speech? What a petty, small little man….

    Alito is a fascist. I fucked him in the ass and when I pulled my cock out it was covered in shit.

  • Hypnos!

    Alito is just showing the extent to which he is a partisan hack, and doesn't even deserve the title of “sort of fair” not to mention “Justice”.

    Glen Greenwalds take on this is very good, I'd say:

    I really enjoy the guilty looks on some of those judges faces as the room stands up and chastises them.
    I guess judgement doesn’t feel so great when you are the one being judged.
    Allito looked like he embarrassed the rest of the judges just by being one of them.
