The President Elect will take the oath of office on January 20th, swearing to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of American. That could be a challenge for him.
Barack Obama has said the Constitution is flawed. In discussing civil rights, he said the greatest failure of the movement was that it did not result in the US Supreme Court redistributing wealth. What does that mean? Is he saying that the Courts should be able to create laws and discard the constitution when it feels like it? It sure sounds like that is what he is saying. He certainly was saying the court should have taken money from white people and given it to black people in the name of civil rights. I don’t remember seeing anything like that in the US Constitution. How can you swear to uphold and defend when you don’t agree with it?
Meanwhile, as Dick Cheney pointed out over the weekend, VP Joe Biden has been a member of the Senate Judiciary committee for ages and teaches courses on the constitution. He doesn’t even know what Article One of the document is about, as demonstrated on his weekend TV interviews. This guy does not have the experience or intelligence to be Vice President. So what if Joe Biden can see Washington from his house! Notice no one blasts him as they would Sarah Palin.
It could be a long four years. Maybe you need one of those “1/20/2013? bumper stickers from our store! (Click on the store link at the top right of the page!!!)
