Obama reads the Constitution like a Chinese menu

Obama reads the Constitution like a Chinese menu

As soon as the president began his inaugural address yesterday with a nod to the Constitution, I actually said aloud, “Uh-oh.”

Each time we gather to inaugurate a President we bear witness to the enduring strength of our Constitution….

As feared, the speech devolved into a laundry list of leftist initiatives disguised as Constitutional obligations through an Orwellian prism:

Through it all, we have never relinquished our skepticism of central authority, nor have we succumbed to the fiction that all society’s ills can be cured through government alone.

Barack Obama’s inaugural couldn’t have been less like JFK’s.  We weren’t urged to ask what we can do for our country.  We were being sold a country that solves all our problems.

Throughout the speech, I kept trying to remember where I’d heard another president invoking the Constitution as a Chinese menu applicable only to liberal policies, and dismissing or criminalizing the rest.

Finally I remembered.  It had come straight from the mouth of President Andrew Shepherd.  (Text via American Rhetoric)

For the record, yes, I am a card-carrying member of the ACLU, but the more important question is “Why aren’t you, Bob?” Now this is an organization whose sole purpose is to defend the Bill of Rights. …

You want free speech? Let’s see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who’s standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours.” You want to claim this land as the land of the free? Then the symbol of your country cannot just be a flag. The symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest. Now show me that, defend that, celebrate that in your classrooms.

Then you can stand up and sing about the land of the free.  …

The other piece of legislation is the crime bill. As of today, it no longer exists. I’m throwing it out. I’m throwing it out and writing a law that makes sense. You cannot address crime prevention without getting rid of assault weapons and hand guns. I consider them a threat to national security, and I will go door to door if I have to, but I’m gonna convince Americans that I’m right, and I’m gonna get the guns.

That movie is apparently a favorite of Obama’s and/or his writers. During the 2008 campaign, I noticed portions of the script being used repeatedly in Obama’s campaign speeches. And somehow it seems fitting that our phony, Hollywood-financed president has modelled his presidency on an even phonier Hollywood creation.

Sick disgusting hollyweird garbage

May all those actors and supporting workers that enjoyed filming that scene while filming it be judged by God.

Wait I thought obese children were the great threat to our national security, not guns? Ah liberals, so uneducated, so desperate to sound intelligent, suffering from political ADD

Then the symbol of your country cannot just be a flag. The symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest.

So…the Post Office should print stamps that depict flag burning?

My gawd, the Left makes my head hurt.

“Ask not what you can do for your country,

Ask, ‘Where the hell is my free phone??'”

“No and then!”

I bet Michael wishes his son had a gun in prison.

This is astonishing. Good job, Joel. Thanks. (Wow… head shaking…)

talk is cheap, which is why Ear Leader is so fond of it.

here are some words for him & his ilk to choke on:

I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

and
I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the State of (STATE NAME) against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the Governor of (STATE NAME) and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to law and regulations. So help me God.

note that both place primacy on supporting & defending the Constitution, and that obedience to orders is according to law & regulations.

illegal orders are NOT orders. Barry & his heroes can go pound sand.

As always, Obama says exactly the opposite of what he really means. Get ready for the full blown fleecing of America starting with the green profiteers whose profits will be provided by the tax payers. To support that fleecing it will be necessary for war in the M.E. to hike the price of oil and gasoline as the needed result. We see it all around from Nigeria to Algeria, attacks on oil and gas installations and governments who profit from drilling. Iran (Shiite) funds these attacks to prop up the price of oil through the useful idiots in al Qaeda (Sunni) who don’t know where the money is coming from.

Obama’s non foreign policy – foreign policy of leading from behind ensures instability in the M.E. Pretty soon Obama’s EPA will be stirring the pot some more by increasing the ethanol percentage in US gasoline to 15%, meaning more crop land diversion to ethanol production yielding higher global food prices. You know what that does? Less food for the world’s poor and more violence in desperately fighting over the remaining scraps. Thus al Qaeda recruits more cannon fodder from the poor just fighting to survive.

But just to provide the proper optics we have the CIA kill off the smarter al Qaeda leaders via drone strikes before they figure out who the real man behind the curtain is. These optics are necessary since we wouldn’t want people to figure out Obama is the man behind the curtain and the Mullahs of Iran are just useful idiots to fund world wide terrorism to keep up the price of oil.
