Levin: Constitutional genius Obama canít veto balanced budget amendment
Right Scoop ^ | July 18th | Mark Levin

Posted on 07/19/2011 4:08:21 AM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing

Earlier today Obama threatened he would veto the Cut, Cap, and Balance bill if it reaches his desk. Levin says the only problem with this is that, while he can veto the Cut and Cap part, if the Balanced Budget Amendment passes both the House and the Senate it goes to the states, not Obama. He’s got nothing to do with it.

One would expect a brilliant, ivy league Constitutional Law Professor to know these things:

Levin knows how to use the truth and sarcasm to devastate the lunatic left (which is just about all of them) and our idiot-savant President.

I read "Professor" Obama's final exams online when he was just a bigot running for office. The only part of the Constitution tested in his Constitutional Law 2 class was the 14th Amendment. I have seen no sign in his life history that he is aware of any other part of the Constitution, whether original or as amended. As for "pResident" Obama, he's still just as oblivious to everything American.

Obama Con Law 3 Exam

The questions deal with a lesbian and an African American, as if those personal characteristics should be relevant to the law.

Helen, a forty-year old registered nurse, comes into your office seeking your best legal advice regarding possible constitutional claims against the State of Wazoo. Wazoo is a state in the United States. Helen informs you that she is a lesbian, and that she has been involved in a monogamous relationship with - and has shared a household with -- her partner, Rachel, for the past seven years. The two of them moved to the State of Wazoo just six months ago, in part so they could be closer to Rachel’s ailing mother. . .

I often wonder if oblama actually ever attended college or if he was just an off campus drug dealer and maybe male prostitute. I swear that is the extent of his mental faculties.

Levin apparently doesn't know that the balanced budget amendment is dead before it's born.

That would make a fine daily thread. Rush sometimes does it with multiple comments from various sources repeating the same phrase and it is just devastating.

0bama has a fixation with a Male Wazoo.I remember Paul Reubens (aka Pee Wee Herman)had a comedy bit on Pee Wee’s Playhouse.

Paul (Pee Wee) was talking about the Solar System and the Planets, when he said something like “ and now we go all the way up to Uranus”
Of course, even when Pee Wee was performing as a comic, Pee Wee was a much more serious person as compared to 0bama

As much as I usually agree with Levin, I think he's a little off here.

By vetoing the original cut, cap and balance bill, zer0 then makes it much more difficult to pass the BBA, politically.

I still favor both the bill and the BBA, though.

Amendments are strange critters ~ most of them that are actually proposed on the floor of either House die right there. Most of those voted for by one house die in the other. Most of those voted for by both houses die in the states. Even at the end, if they are approved by enough states, they require some sort of certification as having been passed back in DC.

They have a rough road.

The balanced budget amendment could well be passed within hours and be on its way to the states ~ and it will never be seen again.

To encourage us to adopt it, they tell us that there is a plain, easy way of getting amendments. When I come to contemplate this part, I suppose that I am mad, or that my {49} countrymen are so. The way to amendment is, in my conception, shut. Let us consider this plain, easy way. “The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a Convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by the Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress. Provided, that no amendment which may be made prior to the year 1808, shall in any manner affect the 1st and 4th clauses in the 9th section of the 1st article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.”

Hence it appears that three fourths of the states must ultimately agree to any amendments that may be necessary. Let us consider the consequence of this. However uncharitable it may appear, yet I must tell my opinion — that the most unworthy characters may get into power, and prevent the introduction of amendments. Let us suppose — for the case is supposable, possible, and probable — that you happen to deal those powers to unworthy hands; will they relinquish powers already in their possession, or agree to amendments? Two thirds of the Congress, or of the state legislatures, are necessary even to propose amendments. If one third of these be unworthy men, they may prevent the application for amendments; but what is destructive and mischievous, is, that three fourths of the state legislatures, or of the state conventions, must concur in the amendments when proposed! In such numerous bodies, there must necessarily be some designing, bad men. To suppose that so large a number as three fourths of the states will concur, is to suppose that they will possess genius, intelligence, and integrity, approaching to miraculous. It would indeed be miraculous that they should concur in the same amendments, or even in such as would bear some likeness to one another; for four of the smallest states, that do not collectively contain one tenth part of the population of the United States, may obstruct the most salutary and necessary amendments. Nay, in these four states, six tenths of the people may reject {50} these amendments; and suppose that amendments shall be opposed to amendments, which is highly probable, — is it possible that three fourths can ever agree to the same amendments? A bare majority in these four small states may hinder the adoption of amendments; so that we may fairly and justly conclude that one twentieth part of the American people may prevent the removal of the most grievous inconveniences and oppression, by refusing to accede to amendments. A trifling minority may reject the most salutary amendments. Is this an easy mode of securing the public liberty It is, sir, a most fearful situation, when the most contemptible minority can prevent the alteration of the most oppressive government; for it may, in many respects, prove to be such. Is this the spirit of republicanism?

What, sir, is the genius of democracy? Let me read that clause of the bill of rights of Virginia which relates to this: 3d clause: — that government is, or ought to be, instituted for the common benefit, protection, and security of the people, nation, or community. Of all the various modes and forms of government, that is best, which is capable of producing the greatest degree of happiness and safety, and is most effectually secured against the danger of mal-administration; and that whenever any government shall be found inadequate, or contrary to those purposes, a majority of the community hath an indubitable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to reform, alter, or abolish it, in such manner as shall be judged most conducive to the public weal.

This, sir, is the language of democracy — that a majority of the community have a right to alter government when found to be oppressive. But how different is the genius of your new Constitution from this! How different from the sentiments of freemen, that a contemptible minority can prevent the good of the majority! If, then, gentlemen, standing on this ground, are come to that point, that they are willing to bind themselves and their posterity to be oppressed, I am amazed and inexpressibly astonished. If this be the opinion of the majority, I must submit; but to me, sir, it appears perilous and destructive. I cannot help thinking so. Perhaps it may be the result of my age. These may be feelings natural to a man of my years, when the American spirit has left him, and his mental powers, like the members of the body, are decayed. If, sir, amendments {51} are left to the twentieth, or tenth part of the people of America, your liberty is gone forever.

Patrick Henry, June 5th, 1788

Is that “Exam” legit or an Onion inspired parody?

The only fun part with Obama is that the community organizer being himself tends to come across as an over-the -top parody, but the exam is (sadly) real.

Two years ago, Mayor Dudley Duright was elected as the first African-American mayor of Wazoo City. Wazoo City is the largest city in the State of Wazoo, with a population that is roughly 50 percent African-American and 50 percent white. The population is remarkably segregated, with almost 80 percent of all African-Americans residing in the city’s South Side, and almost 90 percent of whites residing in the city’s North Side. In winning the election, Mayor Duright garnered almost 95 percent of the African-American vote, and less than 15 percent of the white vote. Since the election, the Mayor has been under great pressure from some of his supporters to open up economic and employment opportunities to Wazoo City’s African-American population. These supporters identify two areas of particular concern: city contracting, and the racial composition of the city’s Fire Department . . .

To the bigot in our White House, everything is about race, except the occasional lesbian being abused by the man. I remember when we had a concept of "equal justice under the law" and an idealist dreamed of a world where we judged each other by the content of our character and not by the color of our skin. Sadly, with Obama and with too many of his followers, that ideal is now treated as racist.

And someone needs to remind that damn leftist SCOTUS members that THEY have nothing to do with it either. An Amendment to the Constitution CAN NOT be declared un-constitutional. Period. Even the amendment violates “rights”.
