Quote of the Day, Obama and the Constitution edition

Don’t be shy, Peter. Tell us how you really feel:

In a deep, fundamental way, [Barack Obama] is no longer a serious man. Nor an honest one. His public words are now purposefully bleached of truth. And that is a painful thing to have to say about an American president.

This is what I love about the Left: if pressed, they inevitably reveal their inner anti-democratic, anti-constitutional souls for all to see. People are telling Obama “no,” and President Thin-Skin doesn’t like it. And when he doesn’t like it, he reverts to the Alinskyite community organizer he’s always been.

And that’s going to cost him.

    So Obama thinks the courts should never overturn laws which were passed with “a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”

    So here are the vote margins that passed Obamacare:
    Senate: 60-39
    House 219-212

    Here are the votes on another piece of legislation that was passed and signed into law:
    Senate: 85-14
    House: 342-67

    I think anyone with a basic knowledge of math (yes, I know that leaves out people like Obama and Biden) would agree that the second law qualifies more as a law passed with “a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”

    That law is the Defense Of Marriage Act. And guess whose Justice Department is now asking the courts to overturn it?

    Oh, and BTW, the vote this year in the House to repeal Obamacare was 245-189. Even THAT is more of a strong majority that the vote that passed it.

    So regardless of what Obama read from his Teleprompter, fact is that his view has nothing to do with constitutionality – remember, he said the Constitution is a “flawed document” anyway. It has everything to do with having the federal government expanding its power and encroaching more on our freedoms. Anything else he says on the subject is a lie.

    Don’tcha worry your little punkin haid, GWR. If Congress won’t approve what he wants, or if the SCOTUS declares his “Affordable” (man, I’d sure like to know how they figured THAT one) Health Care Act unconstitutional, he’ll do it by executive order anyway because, gosh darn it, he can and he knows the Constitution gives him the power to do that ’cause he’s a major constitutional lawyer!

    Wonder if the Republicans are ever going to call “BS” on any of the crap he’s doing by EO? Probably not – they mostly checked their ‘nads at the door when coming into D.C. Go along to get along and all that crap, you know. That’s the speech freshmen get every term, isn’t it?

    This is an actual turning point in our History as a free nation. You are watching a sitting President threaten the Supreme Court of the United States of America to not go against his signature legislation that was passed by him and his cohorts in Congress by illegal means. What these Justices of the highest court in our land do this week will define the future of our country. It will also define the future of this Illegal President. And he well knows it. He is fighting for his very life, politically speaking and we are fighting for the future of this country. Our first Black President. What a handsome example of racial neutrality he has presented us with. What a disgusting human being. Is that statement not politically correct? Sorry. Ask me if I care.

    We keep hearing so much about Obhammud’s law school background and experiences and his teaching about the Constitution. On how many court cases, civil or criminal, has Obhammud ever been the lead attorney? Zero! The only way to learn a game is to play it. He knows not that from which he speaks. After all, he and his “significant ogre” have had to surrender their law licenses.

    Seriously! Honestly! Is this a man?

    As to the reference to his days as a community organizer, Obama was an abject failure at that too. His excuses were pretty much the same as now. He “inherited a mess…” etc.

    Good point. If Obama’s legal credentials are so good (Harvard Law, and editor of the Law Review), why didn’t any of the top law firms in the country try to recruit him? There’s no evidence that any prestigious law firm made the slightest effort to get this genius to sign on, like they do with every other top-ranked graduate of a good law school.

    But it does provide a clue to one reason why he’s gone to such great lengths and great expense to hide his academic records.

    GWR

    Thanks for that factoid. I had forgotten. For Obozo, its called getting called out.

    I would really like to see those college transcripts….and the point about him not being swept right into a high powered law firm as former and present Law Review editors are accustomed only makes me question his creditials that much more!!!

    Even his PR folks are flailing away at it…they are trying to change the context and tell us what THEY think he REALLY meant to say…OMG, what a bunch of incompetents!

    HE said what HE said for a reason…he was actually exposing what he feels are his basic truths of governance. Deal with it liberals– you have placed a despot in charge of national policy. Scary times are ahead.

  9. Carlos says:

    As I understand it, if one has the experience of HLR editor on his resume, even a relatively mediocre Hawvud law grad gets significant offers, and I’m sure there’s at least one prestigious law firm somewhere on the east coast that wouldn’t be troubled by Duh-1′s far-left propensities.

    And thanks for the Pepsi in my nose, Drew, with “significant ogre.”
