During the State of the Union address Wednesday night, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito visibly disagreed with President Barack Obama's remarks about the Citizens United v. FEC decision. Alito started shaking his head while Obama was talking about the Court reversing a "century of law" and in so doing will "open the floodgates" of corporate spending in campaigns. If it was the first part of the sentence Alito objected to, it could be argued that he has a point.
