The President will be speaking in a few minutes here.  You can watch it live at whitehouse.gov.  For those hoping to see him spike the football, this could be it.

Right now, Bachmann is nattering on somewhere about how terrible, no good, horrible the SCOTUS decision is.  < Nelson Muntz > < /Nelson Muntz >

So, let's see what the Prez has to say!  And for your listening pleasure in the meantime:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    to rehash the arguments of the past two years, or go back to how things were.

    when we look back 5, 10, 20 years from now, we'll be better off, because we had the courage to pass this law and keep moving forward.
