Obama Says Liberal Courts May Have Overreached

Oh no. It's the oh-too-familiar Obama 'I'm about to f*ck the left' foreshadowing: Obama Says Liberal Courts May Have Overreached 29 Apr 2010  In a seeming rejection of liberal orthodoxy, President Obama 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. Mr. Obama made his remarks Wednesday night against a backdrop of recent Supreme Court rulings in which conservative justices have struck down laws favored by liberals, most notably a January ruling that nullified restrictions on corporate spending to influence elections.
