Well, I'll take this opportunity to praise the Iraqi Defense Force, and to speak in their favor. They wear uniforms, they have a military command structure, they serve a national government--none of which can be said of the illegal combatants who seek to kill them. They ought to be able to face their enemies plainly, instead of the enemies hiding among civilians or fleeing to Iran.

I speak up in favor of the innocent citizens of Iraq. None of them should have been killed by poison gas. None of them should have been thrown into a wood chipper, head-first or feet-first. None of the women should have been subjected to rape as many were under Saddam. I applaud the bravery so many of them showed when they voted, even in the face of danger that their purple-inked fingers would mark them for retribution if the terrorists had their way.

That is simply not true. Wherever would you get such a false notion?

You only believe in letting Americans have rights - don't expect any sympathy here.

News coverage here.
Laws had been enacted which limited corporation and union spending on election campaigns. However, such spending is part of the right to free speech, and so is protected by the Constitution. In recent years, corporations are mostly thought to support Republican policies, so they are thought to benefit from the decision.

prompting the White House to pledge "forceful" action to undercut the decision.
Wait a minute! Obama's oath of office requires him to uphold the Constitution. He is not supposed to undercut it.:(:(:(

In Obama's weekly radio address, he also spoke against this Constituional right. But, he didn't have any legal basis to do so. He just doesn't like it.
