PALIN: OBAMA DOESN'T UNDERSTAND OR 'CHOOSES TO DISRESPECT OUR CONSTITUTION'
Breitbart ^ | April 13, 2014 | By Tony Lee

Posted on 04/13/2014 2:51:07 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama on Saturday for either not understanding or deliberately disrespecting the Constitution.

"We have a president who doesn't understand or just chooses to disrespect our Constitution," Palin said on Fox News' Cashin In with host Eric Bolling.

Obama has unilaterally changed immigration, health care, and welfare laws, among others, according to Palin, and she said that he has sent a message with his actions that an elite crew will run the government as they see fit instead of "We the People."

She also said there needs to be "new energy" in government instead of more blue bloods...

The Constitution is not a neutral document. It is an anti-government document that creates an expressly limited government. It is an anti-socialist document. That's why Obama and the Socialists hate it.

The Right needs to set aside other peripheral issues and unite against America's greatest common enemy: the unconstitutional $4 trillion government which needs to be cut by at least 80% and replaced with the CLEAR ALTERNATIVE: the FREE MARKET ECONOMY.

Agreed. The limited version of the Convention of States proposed by the Citizens for Self-Governance is one of our best hopes.

I’ll keep repeating it until Palin and other Freepers get it; the powers the President derives comes from the Constitution, people and are checked by Congress. Palin barking about Obambi effectively does zilch. She and freepers need to hold accountable the correct people and in this instance that is Congress. Until Congress does something about it all else is akin to farts in the wind. Wasted air.

Bold talk for a Newbie.

Getting the Right People in Congress who will do something is the first step. Which is what Sarah and Free Republic is all about.

The Uniparty who is in control now doesn't want to upset the Applecart.

He understands well enough that the Constitution exists as a constraint on government.

To Obama, the government is the instrument of his power and wealth.

Ergo he chooses to ignore the Constitution.

Shows that she needs a good speech writer. Offering a posit in the alternative is just a rookie mistake.

Doesn’t she know which it is? Of course she does. Does she claim those are the only two alternatives? Of course they are not.

She really needs some help.

“Obama doesn’t understand or ‘chooses to disrespect our Constitution’”

Yes.

To both parts of that statement. As a Constitutional law ‘professor’, he was just looking for loopholes.

Not so good at finding them, though. Has to make up his own rules as he goes.

Affirmative Action is the curse of our generation. Otherwise, he would have been gone long ago.

Incompetence knows no color. When a black man can be held to the same standards as a white man, then equality of the races before the law shall have been achieved.

Not before.

A convention of states is a convention called by the state legislatures

They are given this power under Article V of the Constitution.

In my opinion, Obama does not understand anything. He says whatever comes to his mind and a lapdog press allows him to get away with it. At the same time, he only seems to respect himself and does not have fixed or meaningful opinions. His policies change as the political weather changes. We have a country that is leaderless and bleeding from multiple wounds. These wounds were inflicted by a leader who doesn’t see the blood; and even if he did, he wouldn’t be able to understand that he is stabbing the country over and over and over again. He understands nothing and cares about nothing.

I was actually under a different name years ago...I wished she’d take her talk directly to Congress. I understand she is working to flush them out and has faired well. In this instance Obama is the obvious path of least resistance. Id like to see her tough talk directed where it belongs and a constant drumming. Obama laughs but he wont if Congress is pressured to hold him accountable.

Welllll....thanking our lucky stars that we FReepers have YOU to tell US and Sarah Palin how things work best.

It’s obvious you are NOT one of us (”She and freepers”), nor a fan of Sarah Palin...how thoughtful of you to hop onto this thread and set us all straight.

By the way, Sarah Palin’s “barking” HAS done more to creep under the skin of the left, than anything RINO’s in leadership have begun to do.

She lives in the heads of libs rent free. You’ve proven that, perfectly.

What bothers me about Palin is the following. Even if Obama was trying his best to work with Congress to resolve the issues that Palin indicated, why doesn't she also mention that the states have never delegated to feds, via the Constitution, the specific powers to officially address most, if not all of those issues?

The Leftists do not ignore the Constitution. They follow it to the letter. Unfortunately, it's the Living Constitution, the Constitution as a tree, the Constitution that evolves and changes over time without the words actually changing, that they follow.

When words slip and slide out of meaning in the minds and opinions of liberal judges via penumbras and emanations, it's important to refresh the intent of the Framers by sharpening and restating that Original Intent in sharper and more pointed language via the amendatory process. This is that opportunity.

Nice try, loser.

She should have said what she knows to be true. Obama intentionally disregards the Constitution. Her gratuitous remark to the effect that he might not understand it, weakens her response, makes her look like a whiner. I see it as her trademark: great philosophy, poor delivery.

And, that you cannot see that, says a lot about you.
