Obama: A domestic enemy of the U.S. Constitution

““Before he enter on the execution of his office, he shall take the following oath or affirmation — I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.*

“* Unless, you know, 224 years from now, whoever happens to president simply decides he really doesn’t want to do that.”

- Article II, Section 1, Clause 8 of Barack Obama’s U.S. Constitution

The Founders set the course in a simple, concise, 35-word affirmation — the president’s top job is to “preserve, protect and defend” the Constitution. The chief executive does, of course, have other responsibilities, but his guardianship of the document they had just written was deemed by the Founders to be of such great import that they made him swear it — aloud, in front of witnesses.

In 1884, Congress, having no set oath of office, wrote its own: “I 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 …”

Little did they know then that 128 years later, America would face just that: a domestic threat to the U.S. Constitution.”

    Where is the outrage!! This assswipe is destroying the country more every day. What’s wrong with the sheep that voted for him, the media and republicans that are now silent, and the idiots that are still supportive?? The government has been corrupt since Lincoln, but at least the constitution was intact. This guy is an arrogant, ignorant poser that wants nothing good for the people. Wake the fuck up!!

      After 12+ years of public education indoctrination and 24/7 news propaganda most folks seem to firmly believe that this is how things are supposed to work. They think that the government always has our best interest at heart.They ignore actions and get swept up in campaign slogans and fancy stump speeches .
      Worst of all they still think there is a difference between the rethuglicans and demonrats.
