Chuck Grassley And Obama Stupid, In a Saturday morning tweet, Iowa GOP Sen Chuck Grassley called the president stupid, sparking reaction in the blogosphere and in the twitter world. Grassley was criticizing the president’s recent comments on the Supreme Court’s heath care case when he tweeted:
Constituents askd why i am not outraged at PresO attack on supreme court independence. Bcause Am ppl r not stupid as this x prof of con law.
Translated, the last line is, “Because American people are not stupid as this ex-professor of constitutional law.” Senator Grassley, who has gained a reputation for tweeting off-the-cuff remarks, is the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee and routinely deals with Supreme Court issues.
Last week, some thought the president got a tad confrontational when asked of the fate of the health care law in the hands of the high court:
Ultimately I am confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.
Hinting at judicial activism, he complained about the chance that “an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law.”
