Yes, I'm quite sure that spending an unprecedented $600 million plus really plays well with the 'average middle class american', especially after he spent $4 million to air a $20 million commercial full of lies and exaggerations. Nothing says "I care about the middle class" like spending well over half a billion dollars during a financial crisis.
This is the oath every President is required to take:
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
Interesting, especially since Obama said in 2001:
The Constitution " reflected the fundamental flaw of this country that continues to this day” .http://sayanythingblog.com/readers/entry/obama_constitution_fundamentally_flawed
Well THAT's certainly not protecting or defending the Constitution now, is it?
And then there's this statement on what the great one will look for in a judge, which should absolutely disgust you if you are, you know, interested in the law...
"We need somebody who's got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it's like to be a young teenage mom. The empathy to understand what it's like to be poor, or African-American, or gay, or disabled, or old."
That's not how the law works and not how a judge is supposed to do his job. As a matter of fact, every professor I've ever had has stressed that the law is not emotional and shouldn't be decided based on emotion.
Activist judges are not qualified to sit on the Supreme Court.
But what do I know, I'm no constitutional law professor who refuses to release any of my law school work, lectures, or harvard law review articles.
There is also absolutely no chance that I registered for school as a foreign national in order to get scholarship or grant money.
So I could be wrong...
