The White House isn't backing down from its criticism of the Supreme Court over a campaign finance ruling.

White House officials say President Barack Obama still believes the court made a poor ruling when it allowed corporations and unions to freely spend money on ads for or against specific candidates.

Obama adviser David Axelrod says the decision is a threat to democracy. Spokesman Robert Gibbs says interests groups will increase their influence because of the ruling.

Last week, Chief Justice John Roberts said he was troubled by Obama's criticism during the State of the Union address. Obama scolded the justices — who were sitting in front of him in the House chamber.

Axelrod was on ABC's "This Week" and Gibbs appeared to "Fox News Sunday."
