“During his debate with Palin, Biden couldn’t even correctly name the article of the Constitution that outlined the Executive Branch.” Yo=Yo

As well as incorrectly stating that the VPOTUS role was only in the Executive Branch and that it is therefore exclusively and Executive office. The VPOTUS role is discussed in BOTH Article I and II.

Stupid Biden.

They've both done stints as constitutional law professors.

And yet neither of them have any clue about the Constitution and what it really means.

Well Chief. The shite is about to hit the fan on the COLB issue. Clarance Thomas has scheduled a SCOTUS conference on the issue for 5th December.

Not a peep from the MSM. Its all over the blogosphere.

And RUSHmore hasn't even mentioned it.Guess he won't tip his hand.

Would I ever like to be an ant on the window sill listening in on that one!

Obamabi just got throgh dissing Thomas publicly last week.

It does bode well for “the constitution”. The problem is that its the Soviet Unions constitution

Obama understands the Constitution...he called it “fundamentally flawed.” He understands it; he just disagrees with it!

"After eight years of trashing the Constitution, we have an administration that actually respects the document."

Okay, where the HE [double toothpicks] is the BARF alert?

Yet, they are going to support the (un)Fairness Doctrine?

The execrable author of this execrable piece, John Nichols, would contend that, certainly, he has an unlimited right to free speech. Because he is a right-thinking liberal.

Limbaugh, Hannity and you, however, do not. Because they are wrong-headed, mean-spirited conservatives.

He would assert this with a straight face.

Obama and Biden bode well for Constitution...except of course for the comments Obama made about the Constitution being an "imperfect" document and not allowing the government to do enough for its people - or against them under the right circumstances - and his association with Mr. Ayers who insisted on more than one occasion that if it felt to him that a law "didn't fit", he would simple ignore the law - yep aside from those inconvenienves I'm sure Obama will be very respectful and observant of the Constitution.......

“So maybe when a new president and vice president swear oaths to defend the Constitution, they might actually mean it?”

Is the writer suggesting that Obama and Biden will try to get “Roe vs. Wade”, “Kelo”, and “Boumadienne” reversed ?

Been following that on World Net Daily - seems several law suits out there ... then did Kerry ever show his form 180(?) - I think the MSM will just push that aside as Obama bashing/racist comments and go on to other things like praising Michelle’s wardrobe ...>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

You may be right, but the matter will be before a conference of SCOTUS Justices on Dec.5, as arranged via Justice Clarence Thomas, after Justice Souter Declined.

Its now beyond the pale where the matter can be treated
as minor.

We’ll have to see. Thomas is not a man to back down from any issue.

The last “professor” of Constitutional Law we had in the White House did not know what “is” is. You expect either of these clowns to be any different?

Good for the Constitution..... What sort of Kool-Aid are they drinking in Madison???

Fairness Doctorine (Violates the 1st Amendment)??? Gun Control (Second Amendment)??? Affirmative Action to the hilt???? Not defending the country adequately by disarming to the point that the US is threatened and can’t respond (Article 1-Duties of the Executive)???

After they collapse the goobermint, perhaps the remnant of survivors will create a new Government that actually abides by the Constitution. That is the only way Dumb and Dumber are going to help the Constitution.

America has walked the plank with these two, but they have a convenient excuse named George Bush.
