You can say that again, Mr. President

Seriously. Go ahead.

And speaking of the embarrassing things that happen when Obama talks, Reuters reports:

The White House was forced on the defensive on Wednesday as it sought to explain controversial remarks President Barack Obama made earlier in the week about the Supreme Court’s review of his signature healthcare reform law.

“What he did was make an unremarkable observation about 80 years of Supreme Court history,” Carney told reporters during a White House briefing dominated by the topic.

Obama expressed confidence on Monday that the Court would not take an “unprecedented, extraordinary step” by overturning the law, provoking a storm of protest that he had been inaccurate and was challenging the nation’s top judges in an election year.

Nobody’s buying the excuses. Either you believe Obama doesn’t know what the words “majority” and “precedent” mean, or you recognize that he was lying. Again. Even PolitiFact isn’t giving him any cover on this one.

Obama’s been having a tough time of it lately, huh? His fall from grace would be amusing if he weren’t so intent on dragging the rest of the country down with him. As far as he’s concerned, you should’ve thought about that before you let him down, America.
