"Obama's Lawyer Chokes Again."

Classic Drudge.



The main link goes here, for a discussion of the argument in the Arizona immigration case, which we're already discussing here and here.

The picture of Obama's hand directly under Verrilli is a devious, devilish Drudge touch. "Economic Suicide Pact"... that goes to the viral video "If I Wanted America to Fail."

What does the extended hand above the Presidential-seal-emblazoned lectern mean? I'm seeing a drowning, swallowed up in the troubled waters of his presidency. Or perhaps a shrinking man, too tiny for the job? Or are you seeing a Hitler salute? That might have more to do with "If I Wanted America to Fail."

Anyway... Drudge being Drudge.

Where was Prosser this morning?

That's a powerful video that Drudge linked to. I hope it gets lots of discussion.

Actually, Obama is using the Darth Vader force choke on his lawyer.

Raise your hand if you want America to fail.

Paula said...

To be honest, I saw a Hitler salute but I like the imagery of a tiny man too little to do a huge job.

all I see in that hand photo is a president who checked out long ago.

We've gone from the Best and the Brightest to the Worst and the Slightest.

PS Cap'n, if all you see...

I imagine that's the last thing you see as you're being dropped under the POTUS bus. -cp

Scorpius said...

At least he wasn't choking on dog...

RKearns said...

Actually, it's the hand of Darth Barak using a force-choke on the defenseless Solicitor General... "I find your lack of faith disturbing." Arghhh!

Sierrapundit said...

Speaking of "Hitler salute", why do Obama's lawyers always seem to sport Heinrich Himmler mustaches? Holder, this clown, etcetera.

OUCH: “Obama’s Lawyer Chokes Again.” Next time, cut the puppy into smaller pieces. And chew more thoroughly.

I'm waiting for the SG to make the cross-case argument that American needs illegal orderlies.

Meanwhile, Drudge would be that killer angel of mercy keeping medical costs down. Obama should thank him.

Chewing puppies by pieces is too cute (and original!) by half, xnar, when it's simply a matter of the opposite genus. Our cool cat Prez is very much a drowned one now.

The courts allow strong popular presidents great leeway (e.g. W in 2002 on the GWoT)m but rein them in pretty fast when they are weak or unpopular (e.g. W in 2006 on the GWoT).

Obama is neither strong nor popular.

@caseym54: I'm told, however, that he's very likeable. [Not that I suspect a Bradley Effect or anything.] Then again, I was also told that he's pretty much the smartest man ever to live and the best orator. Hmmmmmm.

Is he a Harvard grad? Nuff said. Cheers.

Bill said...

Somebody misplaced Obama. He's signalling, "I'm up here! Behind the podium!"

Thucydides said...

He's signaling to the TelePrompter for help.

Somehow I remember a salute like that from the 1930s. In Germany, I believe.

I have to believe any lawyer would have trouble with this legal equivalent of a 'hospital pass'.

Placing a bag of chickenshit on the table of the court and passing it off as chicken salad isn't easy to pull off.

The dogs Obama ate, were they farm raised, or were they dog napped from someones yard. Did Obama eat someone pet dog?

A 10 million increase since Obama took office. What will the end of another term bring? Certainly more debt, more poverty, and more tyranny.
