CNN’s Costello Really Wants To Be Told Obama Won A Supreme Court Case He Totally Lost

Posted By Brendan Bordelon On 3:25 PM 06/26/2014 In | No Comments

Liberal CNN anchor Carol Costello really wanted legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin to say President Obama won Thursday’s Supreme Court case overturning the White House’s unconstitutional appointment of three labor board members, which circumvented the Senate.

But Toobin wouldn’t bite, gently but firmly informing the disappointed anchor there’s “no doubt” the president lost.

The Court ruled 9-0 against the Obama administration’s 2012 move to install three appointments to the National Labor Relations Board while the Senate was out of session.

The decision wholly invalidates President Obama’s argument that he can move around Senate blocks on judicial and other appointments as long as the legislative body is idle — but not in recess — when he makes his move.

But Costello couldn’t accept the defeat. “So as usual, Jeffrey Toobin, this is a more complicated decision,” she said. “It’s just not black and white. Cause I guess you could say the president lost . . . but did he?”

“Yeah, he lost,” Toobin replied quickly. “There’s no doubt.”

“Well he lost in this particular case,” she admitted plaintively. “But overall, right?”

“Well . . . no, he lost overall,” Toobin insisted. “I mean, there’s no question this is a win for Congress and a defeat for President Obama.”

“The interesting question is, is it a defeat for the presidency?” the legal analyst continued, explaining that it may make “gridlock” more likely by “restoring the Senate as a much more equal partner in terms of approving appointments.”

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
