Ruckus' Revenge

I would not have nominated Clarence Thomas. I don't think that he was a strong enough jurist or legal thinker at the time for that elevation. Setting aside the fact that I profoundly disagree with his interpretations of a lot of the constitution.
Barack Obama

I see now that I will be spending a fair amount of my time in these coming years pointing out all the presidential playa hatin' that will be transpiring as the haters among us come to terms with the reality of the coming Obama administration. While it doesn't surprise me that there are still those with all sort of ill feelings towards the President-Elect, as evidenced by the actions of one Leo Donofrio, the hater who with nothing better to do it seems, pursued a court case arguing that Barack Obama is unqualified to be President of the Unites States because his Kenyan father was classified as a "British subject" at the time of Obama's birth in Hawaii. It does annoy me however that even after Supreme Court Justice David Souter and several lower courts rejected the case, that Justice Clarence Thomas, aka "Uncle Ruckus," decided to give the case a hearing. In spite of Thomas' support, the court again decided against hearing the case earlier today.

One would assume that Thomas is still pissed that the President-Elect said, without hesitation, that he would never have nominated Thomas to the court when asked about it at that unnecessary forum held at Rick Warren's Southern California mega-church during the campaign. Thomas' motivations are very transparent here. This is the Supreme Court of the United States, Sir, not Judge Mathis, or the court of petty, personal grudges, for that matter. Besides, even though you are the poster child for the unqualified minority who benefited from the affirmative action that you denied so many deserving others during your time running the EEOC for Reagan, Obama was right!

Stop hatin' Ruckus, such behavior is not becoming of a Supreme Court justice, however unqualified you might be for such a lofty perch even after all these years.
