He’s certainly faithful to his constituency.
On Monday in Michigan, Obama became exercised when talking about the need to give even suspected terrorists legal rights.
“We may think this is Mohammed the terrorist,’’ he said at a campaign rally, but “it might be Mohammed the cab driver. You might think it’s Barack the bomb-thrower. But it might be Barack the guy running for president.’’
Continuing, he got more heated, his voice booming. Referring to the Constitution, he said: “Don’t mock the Constitution! Don’t make fun of it! Don’t suggest that it’s un-American to abide by what the founding fathers set up! It’s worked pretty well for 200 years!’’
He finished with a sigh: “These people.”
Mohammad the cab driver could have explosives in the trunk.
Barack the bomb thrower or Barack the candidate. What a choice.
And, that’s We the People to you, Obamessiah.
Don’t mock the Constitution? Has he ever read it? I must have missed the amendment which gives rights to foreign terrorists and enemy combatants. Maybe he plans on adding one in addition to the ’57 states’.
I’m one of those people who served this country as a Soldier for 30 years and was sworn to uphold the Constitution. I don’t need a lecture from a socialist who cares more for the ‘rights’ of Islamic terrorists than law-abiding American citizens.
While we’re on that subject, according to a recent Rasmussen Poll:
While 82% of voters who support McCain believe the justices should rule on what is in the Constitution, just 29% of Barack Obama’s supporters agree. Just 11% of McCain supporters say judges should rule based on the judge’s sense of fairness, while nearly half (49%) of Obama supporters agree.
So if a judge’s ‘sense of fairness’ doesn’t jive with the Constitution, that’s okay? Obama’s minions display such a good facade of concern over Constitutional rights. Too bad they wouldn’t know a real violation if it walked up with a bomb strapped to it.
