Posted on 12/08/2008 7:36:48 AM PST by The Anti-One
I'm at a loss. Is President Bush in the tank for Obama? Does he not realize that he, the commander in chief, swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States?
Why is he NOT spearheading the move to get to the bottom of Obama's Birth Certificate issue if he is NOT part of a conspiracy to destroy our society and make us all a part of his daddies "New World Order?"
Please. Help me out here.
Is President Bush really so vane and worried about his own legacy that he won't do what is right or will he go down as the last great liberal to let the Supreme Court decide America's fate.
What good is electing a leader that purportedly defends us and our Constitution abroad if he is letting our enemies destroy both the Constitution and us from within?
Inquiring minds want to know.
So, um, this too is “Bush’s fault”?
You people are obsessed.
*I’m at a loss. Is President Bush in the tank for Obama?*
Nope, he’s just in the tank period.
Bush Just wants the hell out of there i can’t blame him
President Bush??? Really? He is down right giddy over Obama becoming President. He is busy with the transition right now too.
There is only one answer for this.
God told him not to fight it.
What do you mean? Are you suggesting he points to where the wind is coming from?
No That was Docockus
What's wrong with expecting a man to do the job he's being paid to do? And how are those expectations an obsession?
>>>So, um, this too is Bushs fault?
Bush is not in a position to challenge the outcome of the election.
Those who were in a position to challenge it did so, and the Supreme court by refusing to hear this issue has now taken full responsibility.
The coming constitutional crisis and civil breakdown rests squarely on their heads.
I now blame SCROTUS
I never pinned my hopes too high on the BC thing, too much drama at stake for the SCOTUS (Constitutinal Crisis Fears). But I am taking solace in othet post-election happenings......conservative wins in GA & LA, Liberals having conniption fits over Obami’s “centrist” picks and best of all.......all the libtard news rags going belly up since the Messy-siah’s Anointing. This could turn out to be a GLORIOUS 4 yrs if the MSM follows them all into the toilet!!! Blessed be Halleluiah!!!
My ODS is kicking in ...
Lets see he is pissing off the Liberal progressive base and anti-war wackoos.
He already has enough dissent on this side, and now the man that ran on unity and transformational prowess is quickly becoming the most divisive President in history.
Your Hiding something Obama, you fool, you would rather set Law precedent to allow any non-natural born ot run for the highest office in the land then to just show your vault copy..
Must be something juicy on that vault copy for sure...
Most likely Obama is not his real daddy.
I know I am going to get flamed severly, but this issue is dead folks, over, ain’t going to happen. It’s time to get over it, spare me the constitutional arguments, that document has outlived it’s usefulness it would appear as well.
So what was the President supposed to do, swing in on a rope like Batman and exclaim, “Where’s that birth certificate, evildoer???”
The courts are the proper places for arguing issues such as this. The Supreme Court made its decision, and we just have to live with it.
Hey, after 8 years he has the right to flip us the bird and go home ...
I don't know what country you live in but here in the United States we DO NOT have to "live" with anything. We, the people, are the ones that say how we will be governed. Not some oligarchy.
I really am concerned folks. It looks like another civil war is headed our way and in my opinion someone in our government needs to grow some ****s and do what's right.
JMO of course.
*that document has outlived its usefulness it would appear*
I’m still fairly new here, so I’ll let one of the veterans flame you, but I hope you have easy to follow logic for making that statement.....btw I totally disagree.......
>>>Hey, after 8 years he has the right to flip us the bird and go home ...
I agree... I’m Glad to see him do it.
He has done nothing wrong.
Much as I hate to say it Clinton showed him "what choices" he had. He could have been a man and stood his ground just as bush jr. could be a man and use the power we gave him to do the job we sent him there to do.
DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION!
Barack H. Obama Democratic 69,058,185 52.84% John S. McCain, III Republican 59,700,776 45.68%
Cute. So to hell with the Constitution is that what you’re saying?
You posted that "We, the people, are the ones that will say how we will be governed." The people decided. There might be good arguments for SCOTUS to hear the case, but the "will of the people" argument isn't one.
VAIN, not vane, they are two different words.
If you're trying to fix FR's grammar, it's a vein effort.
>Does he not realize that he, the commander in chief, swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States?<
Don’t all members of the three branches of government do the same thing? Yet, all are silent. There is something very ominous taking place in the ranks of our national leadership. Perhaps they have disbanded and left the American people to their own fate.
no...the courts have said that.....
post # 18, WELL SAID
It’s not an issue...it never was and never will be. It’s a pipe dream and the people pushing it are starting to look like wild eyed maniacs. There’s no way in hell any court in this country will do anything to get in the way of BO’s inauguration. 64 million Americans voted for him. He won. Get over it! He WILL be president.
>>VAIN, not vane, they are two different words.
>If you’re trying to fix FR’s grammar, it’s a vein effort.
Sadly so. It’s more of a tension/frustration release for me to blast that... I usually let most grammar mistakes go if I can reasonably decode the intended communication. (Unintelligible, or gross-to-the-point-of-twisting-meanings is another story.)
that document has outlived its usefulness...
Unfortunately, you are right, the Constitution is no longer taken seriously and the Justices are merely playing a language game and taking home their fat checks. I guess that is the situation for most everyone in this alternative PC world.
If you have your doubts about ‘trickle down economics’, how do you like ‘trickle down dictatorship’?
For example the fact that Obama is NOT a Natural Born Citizen
... but the "will of the people" argument isn't one.
It would be if the president "We the People" elected did his friggin job and did his job to protect and defend the Constitution he SWORE to protect and defend.
I know I shouldn't have to say this but context is important.
What would you have him do?
They did not vote for a qualified candidate. Obama should have never been allowed onto the ballot. 64 million people did NOT vote for Obama. They voted against McCain.
Employ the Justice Department to check out the case and see if there are in fact criminal activities taking place or not. He is their boss.
If I owned this place, you'd be out the door for making that statement.
I'm not. The corrupt "Two-Party Cartel" is owned by the elites who comprise the CFR/Trilateralist/ Illuminate. They have instilled a Shadow Government were nonelected bureaucrats run the show, where a SC is no longer a fixture of a Constitution but part of the oligarchy. This nation is a sophisticated Banana Republic. Just as we say we have a free press. You tell me what's free or fair about it. Who do you think kept Barry's birth certificate out of the news & where was our so called conservative radio hosts?
Check his gut and be a man! Stand up and tell the people far and wide that he will not leave until he himself has been convinced that his successor is constitutionally qualified to replace him. He's turning over the nuclear codes, for Pete's sake!
So you're suggesting that Bush announce he intends to violate the Constitution by refusing to leave at the end of his term unless the president elect proves that he isn't violating the Constitution? Makes perfect sense. </sarcasm>
We have ways of deciding that under the Constitution. The Electoral College selects the President (not "we the people") and under the Constitutionally prescribed manner have elected Obama as the next president. The question of his natural-born citizenship was raised during the primaries and many times again throughout the campaign. Lower courts chose not to even take up the issue under poor reasoning, and the Supreme Court has chosen not to review the issue any further.
Unless you are advocating some kind of insurrection against the United States, we do have to live under the laws of the land -- and abide by the rulings of the courts.
No, he just doesn't give a rat's a**. His body is in the oval office but his mind is back in Texas.
I’ve seen similar threads for the past several weeks.
Regardless of the citizenship status of whoever may or may not have been his biological father, his MOTHER was a US Citizen, and he therefore is a natural born citizen of the United States.
Well obviously I am not smart enough, nor do I have the energy to debate this particular topic with you but I will say this, if it was as cut and dry as you are making it sound no one would be questioning his citizenship. Many, many people on the right don’t see it the way you do.
It was scarcasm in that since they are throwing the cases out it must mean that they don’t care who becomes president despite what the constitution might say ...
The Constitution hasn't outlived its usefulness, but those people who think that it has outlived its usefulness have outlived their usefulness.
