David Berstein relates some remarks by President Obama in 2005 on the Lochner Supreme Court decision and the Lochner era in general. He then annotates them with corrections. Obama managed to make nine major errors in just five sentences.
Okay, most politicians probably don’t even know what the Lochner era was. But those people are actually ahead of Obama, insofar as they don’t believe things about Lochner that are false. But the kicker is: Barack Obama taught constitutional law!
This isn’t the first time Obama has been embarrassingly wrong about constitutional law either.
Obama certainly hasn’t been shy about bragging about his credentials as a constitutional law instructor. One wonders what he taught.
