Crossroads with Jan Crawford: White House Vs. Supreme Court: It’s Getting Ridiculous

But once again, the White House has to try to get the last word. Last night, Gibbs struck back at Roberts.

“What is troubling is that this decision opened the floodgates for corporations and special interests to pour money into elections – drowning out the voices of average Americans,” Gibbs said. “The president has long been committed to reducing the undue influence of special interests and their lobbyists over government. That is why he spoke out to condemn the decision and is working with Congress on a legislative response.”

Maybe it’s because he’s an Auburn guy and the Chief Justice was talking to law students at the University of Alabama (or, as we like to say, “the University”), but Gibbs should have let this go.
