He failed the bar exam, but is a constitutional expert.

To play devil's advocate, the Bar Exam is little more than an exercise in rote memorization that bears little relation to the actual practice of law. It serves only to weed out those people who can't afford a BarBri review course.

Or so I've been told by lawyers. Ask me in November.

Yeah and Clintoon taught Constitutional Law and ironically one of his students, a judge, would judge him inadequate for having "lied to the court". clinton is a master of "covering his tracks" but the evidence will undo him.

It is already disgusting...and they haven't gotten to the impeachment part yet.

All I am hoping for at this point...is that it will take so much of this crapola like the US Attorney hearings and such..that Americans will be SICK of them bitching.

""I was a constitutional law professor, which means unlike the current president I actually respect the Constitution," Obama told an audience at a campaign fundraiser.

Action speak louder than words... so prove it, because up to this point your actions only show that you abhor it.

He failed the bar exam, but is a constitutional expert. At what law school did he teach?

He didn't fail the bar exam. He taught at the University of Chicago Law School. Since he was in the top of his class at Harvard Law School, he's probably not a legal idiot.

And an appointed official is supposed to follow the policies laid down by the person who appointed him. In this case. the senior officlals at Justice completely failed to make this clear to certain USAttorneys, who seemed to think that they were independent operators subject only to the canons of the legal profession. Wrong. They are subject to lawful authority. So unless their superiors give them an unlawful order, they are bound to obey, even if they disagree with it.

Nevertheless, even the greatest constitutional law expert probably should not brag that they are one.

"I can just see all of the south and midwest voting for a guy named Obama : )"

Fact is, Northeast liberals won't vote for him either. Neither will they vote for Hillary. Talk about people who will stay home on election day if either one of these fools wins the nomination.

Bill CLinton was a Constitutional law professor too.

Trouble is he spent all his time trying to figure out loopholes, just like Obama will. Anyone who would use the phrase "Social Darwinism" to describe what is in fact the condition of political liberty, as Obama did recently, has no business talking about the Constitution.

Okay, so exactly how did President Bush disrespect the Constitution?

Well, there is that McCain-Feingold thing. And as far as "No Child Left Behind," I'm still looking for that part in the Constitution that gives the federal government any role at all in establishing educational curriculum.

big whoop...

Folks do people realize how overpopulated we are with law schools?

They are still adding NEW law schools.

There are more first year seats across the nation than there are applicants.

ANYONE, and I do mean ANYONE, can get a law degree now from some law school some place.

So the opening s for a constitutional law professor is no big deal any more.

"I was a constitutional law professor, which means unlike the current president I actually respect the Constitution,"

What does being a "constitutional law professor" have to do with respecting the Constitution? Who does this guy think we are?

That means he has glanced at 200 plus years of what judges say the simply and succinct constitution really means.

He has written about the "elastic constitution", and even that has no mention of an attorney general which is not a constitutional office.

>>>"I was a constitutional law professor, which means unlike the current president I actually respect the Constitution."<<<

Obama is a pathological liar, just like Bill Clinton who also name-dropped the constitution from time-to-time to fool the masses. But in reality the constitution is anathema to leftists since it stands in the way of their Stalinist goals. If leftists was forced to follow the original intent of the constitution they would be indistinguishable from conservatives.

I don't understand this clause. The end is redundant.

"Someone should do him in adobe.."

That would be mean. And how would you get him to stand still while it dried?

Very mean, you should be ashamed!

You bet! But I think you can see that logic and law are not the goals of this exercise, it's to fan more BDS.

George Clooney stated that OBAMA actually left Clooney breathless.

I knew there was something really weird about Clooney besides the liberalism...:)

No, maybe he's not an 'legal' idiot.
Does he know how to start a lawnmower, or change the oil? Does he know how to clean the gutters on a house? Does he know how to use the scanner at a market place? (hey, bodyguards, what's a debit card?)

My point being he taught at Chicago. BFD!
