***Obama stumbles badly on judicial review. I covered this yesterday, here's another take on Obama's embarrassing press conference and veiled threats to the Supreme Court.
Steven Hayward weighs in:
I’m grateful for the favor Obama did for us yesterday of exposing his extreme constitutional ignorance, with his comments on how it would be “unprecedented” for the Court to strike down a law passed by a “strong majority” in Congress. (As if a House margin of seven votes is a “strong” majority.) True, he walked back the comment today, but surely because his statement was not merely indefensible but outright embarrassing to his media defenders.
I’ve been growing weary of hearing people mention that he’s a “constitutional scholar,” since he never published a single thing on the subject either as editor of the Harvard Law Review or as a member of the faculty at the University of Chicago Law School. But hey—he taught constitutional law, didn’t he?
***Romney gets big boost with three way sweep.
***While we're being asked to "cut back," the General Services Administration blows $820,000 at a Las Vegas conference. At least there's a Republican wanting this looked into.
The employees at the conference dropped thousands of dollars on luxury items and convention giveaways -- including more than $6,000 on commemorative coins, $8,000 on a "yearbook" and $3,200 for an in-house mind reader.
No wonder they're so dead set against picture IDs for voters. These people wouldn't be able to vote Democrat with that law in place.
***Amazing story: British woman who looked for her twin sister for 55 years finds her living in the same town!
A British woman who was separated from her twin sister at birth spent 55 years searching for her sibling -- only to find her living in the same town.
Jennifer Wilson, 67, knew that she and her twin both were given up as babies and tried for decades to track down her sister without success, the Daily Mirror reported.
Wilson, from Rotherham, northern England, registered her name with social services and consulted a clairvoyant who told her that she would find her twin, but she had no luck until a TV company making a show about reuniting families traced her long-lost sister.
Kathleen Millns had always lived just three miles away from Wilson -- and the pair even shared the same doctor and dentist.
