SCOTUS Justice Roberts Found Obama's SOTU "Very Troubling"

When Obama criticized the SCOTUS decision on a campaign finance case during his State of the Union address, Justice Samuel Alito mouthed the words "not true." He wasn't the only Justice to be troubled by Obama's lack decorum. U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts found the remarks and lack of decorum "very troubling."

AP via Google Hosted News:

Responding to a University of Alabama law student's question, Roberts said anyone was free to criticize the court, and some have an obligation to do so because of their positions...

"The image of having the members of one branch of government standing up, literally surrounding the Supreme Court, cheering and hollering while the court — according the requirements of protocol — has to sit there expressionless, I think is very troubling."

SCOTUS acted like a whiny, crybaby during the SOTU instead of a leader. His attack on SCOTUS was deplorable.
