I wonder if Fred Dooley thinks Reagan showed a lack of class

In discussing President Obama’s State of the Union address, wingnut Fred Dooley of the “Real Debate” Wisconsin blog expresses outrage that President Obama dared criticize the Supreme Court for the Court’s recent decision in Citizens United v. FEC:

The simple fact is the President, Barack Oblame-A showed a complete lack of class when he criticized the court in the speech.

So my question is this: Does Fred Dooley think President Ronald Reagan showed a lack of class when President Reagan expressed his displeasure with the court’s recent ruling on school prayer in his 1988 State of the Union address:

And let me add here: So many of our greatest statesmen have reminded us that spiritual values alone are essential to our nation’s health and vigor. The Congress opens its proceedings each day, as does the Supreme Court, with an acknowledgment of the Supreme Being. Yet we are denied the right to set aside in our schools a moment each day for those who wish to pray. I believe Congress should pass our school prayer amendment.

I can’t wait for Fred Dooley to express his outrage over the criticisms leveled against the Supreme Court by President Ronald Reagan.

  1. I also noted the one where he claimed that unions dumped money into races before the SCOTUS ruling, but businesses didn’t. I wonder who made up WMC in the Ziegler and Gableman races, if it weren’t businesses.

  2. Too often in today’s political landscape discourse is kept among those who agree. RDW is not a blog to promote that. They discuss ideas here, they ask that you keep your tone in check and respect the notion that “ideas” means whatever we want to mean. And they’ll ban anyone who points out hypocrisy with too sharp a tongue.

  3. If you look at the paragraph preceding the one you quoted zach, it talks about abortion being wrong. As in, the supreme court being wrong in roe v wade.

  4. Oh come on. There is a difference between saying you oppose abortion or you support time for school prayer and doing what Obama did.

    Look at the above quote and contrast it with BHO’s:
    “Last week, the Supreme Court reversed a century of law that I believe will open the floodgates for special interests, including foreign corporations, to spend without limit in our elections. 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 I urge Democrats and Republicans to pass a bill that helps correct some of these problems.”

    Obama landed a direct attack on a SCOTUS ruling. Also note he asked Congress to pass a bill and not an amendment, as if to skirt the ruling rather than change the Constitution.
