his endorsement of a mosque at Ground Zero created an awful kerfuffel
that has Democrats racing for cover right before mid-term elections,
President Obama has retreated behind the protective cover of the U.S. Constitution.
Barack Obama and the Constitution?
Is it not the highest form of blasphemy just to mention this president’s name in the same sentence as the U.S. Constitution?
After all, he has waged all-out war on that document since invading
the Oval Office on January 20, 2009.
As reported at Yahoonews.com, in part:
“BOARD AIR FORCE ONE – A White House spokesman
says politics wasn’t a factor in President Barack Obama’s remarks about
building a mosque near the site of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in New York City.
Deputy White House press secretary
Bill Burton said it was "not politics" but Obama’s feeling that he had
the obligation as president to "make sure people are treated equally"
under the Constitution.”
If Obama really gave a tinker’s dam about
the Constitution, he would scrap his outrageous law suit against the
state of Arizona for protecting its citizens from invaders.
would move to scrap ObamaCare, which was rammed down the throats of
unwilling Americans with legislative sleight of hands and bribery when
the votes were not there to follow the rules.
He would understand that forcing citizens to
purchase health care insurance, or face the ravages of the IRS, is barbaric and unconstitutional.
would understand that the Constitution is very specific when it comes
to the eligibility of any person to serve as president. Thus, he would
make every effort to be completely honest and transparent with the American people concerning questions about his own eligibility.
He would understand that the Constitution sets forth provisions for separation of powers, meant to assure that the Executive Branch is accountable to the people through the oversight function performed by Congress.
He would understand that installation of stealth Czars in order to circumvent Congressional oversight is a repudiation of the Constitution.
He would understand that voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party is not acceptable simply because the intimidated are not people of color.
He would understand that actions taken to grant rights
reserved for citizens to terrorists are anti-American acts of treason.
He would understand that the Constitution requires the president to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws so as to protect the American people.
would understand that it is the president’s Constitutional obligation
to serve as America’s Commander-in-Chief, which requires him to use war
powers prudently to defend the American people, rather than using those
powers as political footballs.
Above all else, if he were
genuine, President Obama would understand that the will of the people
should be the first priority for any political entity wishing to govern,
and that that applies to taxes, illegal invasions, health care,
terrorists, and all major issues of the day.
Barack Obama concerned about the Constitution?
Oh, really, don’t be silly!
