What's being said

  • Smith was Correct

    Mr. Obama failed to define what you so aptly fill in for him, here, as if you were the court yourself, Sir. With so many law professors to do his public word crafting, why should the American people trust the competency of this president, that claims he completed his studies at Harvard Law School, when his actions, which speak louder than words, do not exemplify that education before our society. Why, for example, you felt strongly compelled to write this article as a result in defense of a constitutional law professor. Imagine. I wonder if you would have so urgently written such an instrument on behalf of a law student that suffered the same sort of public criticism.

  • Concerned lawyer

    Without disagreeing with the author as to what he did said, he and other "defenders" should address the "that group of unelected people" comment. Was it an attack on the Judicial Article?
