My question is, where was Obama intervening on this? He intervened on that guy getting accosted by the police in Boston or wherever, but why hasn't he stepped in for this?

Intervening in what? A correct legal decision?

He stepped in with that Boston thing to say the police acted "stupidly", or whatever he said.

I think it's entirely unfair for this father to have to pay for Phelps' court costs. It was a funeral. Granted, they have a right to protest, but it's just wrong for the father to have to pay for the court costs.

Where was Obama to say the court acted "stupidly" in the ruling of their case?

My point is, if he's going to get involved with the legal system for one thing, you do it for everything, otherwise don't get involved.

Why would he do that when there are clearly set out rules for awarding costs and the judge followed them?

These cases are nothing alike; the police had discretion with respect to the laying of charges in the Boston case. There was nothing of the sort here.

Apples and oranges.

Intervening in the Boston incident was one of the stupidest things Obama has ever done,
along with getting hooked up with that crook when he bought his house.


I think he leaned from those two mistakes.

There's no clause in the statute that says the legal process is suspended just because someone's the fucking scum of the earth.

The judge was in the right. His hands were tied by the laws he upholds.

"I will seek someone who understands that justice isn't about some abstract legal theory or footnote in a casebook; it is also about how our laws affect the daily realities of people's lives, whether they can make a living and care for their families, whether they feel safe in their homes and welcome in their own nation. I view that quality of empathy, of understanding and identifying with people's hopes and struggles, as an essential ingredient for arriving at just decisions and outcomes."
--Candidate Obama
Isn't Obama all about empathy over "abstract legal theory" from the bench?

I'm not sure how that applies here. This is a fundamental free speech issue.

I haven't looked up this 4th Circuit Court decision yet,

But did Obama appoint the Judges in the majority opinion?



and for those that have asked, one member of the Administration has spoken up:

I'm still in favor of the ole separation of powers thingy. I shudder to think what could have happened with the previous administration, so I'll continue to support no executive interference in the judiciary with this administration.

I saw on my local news last night that the Westboro church is planning a demonstration at the sight. Where the coal miners were killed due to a methane gas explosion in West Virginia.

Very nice folks in W.V. I have traveled/vacationed there, several times. But, they will not put up with the Phelps family BS and will send them packing, back to Texas.

Albert Snyder won't have to pay these lunatics one cent. The people of The Sate of Maryland will pick up the tab. We think it is horrible what he and his family has had to endure. We believe in freedom of religion, but freedom always walks hand in hand with respect.

Whatever. Jesus Christ himself could float down from heaven to give a speech, and they'd picket that, too.

GOD HATES MESSIAHS!
