Skip to comments.The Man Who Knew Too Little -Obama's stunning ignorance of constitutional law
Posted on 04/03/2012 3:22:03 PM PDT by Para-Ord.45
We were half-joking yesterday when we asked if Barack Obama slept through his Harvard Law class on Marbury v. Madison, the 1803 case in which the U.S. Supreme Court first asserted its power to strike down unconstitutional laws. It turns out it's no joke: The president is stunningly ignorant about constitutional law.
Obama, " A law like that has not been overturned [pause] at least since Lochner, right? "
But in citing Lochner, the president showed himself to be in over his head.

Is It Time To Invoke Section 4 of the 25th Amendment?
Section 4. Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.
Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.
Despite all previous claims, Obama was not a law professor, he was merely a “guest lecturer”. In other words, the dude had a paper from Harvard so let’s hire him to speak since half of him is a minority.......
stunning ignorance...*guffaw*...from the WSJ too
Did Trayvon Sr. ever pass the bar? Did he ever practice law?
“...the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”
Yikes. Stuck between a *ock and a headcase.
Much scarier is that he knows exactly what he is doing! He is challenging our system of government and hoping for change. Yes, you ought to be worried! With the Media’s help, he could very well succeed.
It is not ignorance.
It is part of the plan
You make a good point. He is not ignorant. Ignorant is a three year old without knowledge of amiotrophic lateral sclerosis.
ami something what?
I guess I need to google something...
Lol. Als. Lou gherigs disease. You get my point.
“...Trayvon Sr. ...”
Yes, I did.
The "president" is stunningly ignorant about pretty much everything except socialist talking points.
We’ve been told that he was a “constitutional law professor” when actually he taught two courses on civil rights law.
Obama dealing with the constitution is like the media dealing with the Trayvon incident. All b.s...how can we fool ‘em next. Marxists are not known for the love of the constitution.
They have some really good stuff on that website.
Where's the transcripts?
He's such a genius, where's the transcripts?
Let's see them.
What's the big secret?
He’s an I . D . I . O . T!
