Remember Your Oath To Protect The Constitution, Mr. President
Forbes ^ | 02/13/2013 | Bill Flax

Mr. President, perhaps amidst the merriment surrounding the inaugural festivities you misremembered your oath. Sir, you solemnly swore “to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.” But these few weeks hence, your State of the Union speech essentially disavowed America’s cherished founding charter. Many left-leaning pundits applaud your “bold” vision to radically redefine America.

President Obama, you are understandably emboldened by re-election, but you were not made king. Regardless of whether you agree with constitutional precepts, you’re still legally bound; still compelled by the sacred oath you swore.

Perhaps while lecturing college students on Constitutional Law you read it. What authorization supports the myriad initiatives you presented to Congress? Those few matters you articulated within what was entrusted to the federal executive betrayed a radical departure from the Founder’s vision. Defense at least falls within your legitimate purview, but your desire to push women into combat seem more about repudiating America’s heritage than buttressing her military.

The SOTU address advanced the progressive agenda suggested at your inauguration – which you delivered mere moments after vowing subservience to the very Constitution you have consistently abused in word and deed.

You must remember, he NEVER means anything he says, and he is NEVER held accountable for his lies. Understood?

You know damn well (Pardon my French) but Communist do not like to acknowledge the U.S. Constitution because it is contrary to every goal and ideal they have.

Well written, but this POTUS doesn’t care much for that stale, old parchment he swore an Oath to, with his right hand over a book he didn’t grow up with.

An oath is only as good as the man who gives it.

He didn’t come to praise the Constitution but to bury it.

He’s Muslim. When he says “so help me God” it doesn’t mean anything.

The only thing BF Obama remembers from his many oaths is the part about “executing” it.

Protect the constitution?

Hahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!

Oh, thank you - I needed a good laugh.

What the author meant, of course, is that Obama remembers always his intention to undermine the constitution at every opportunity.

Unless the oath was sworn on the Qur’an in the name of Allah, it is non-binding. It is merely taqiyya.
