the BS outa'
the BlogoSphere (and MSM) one shovel-full at a time "
Obama, then and now
Remember the good ole' days when a jive-talkin' Senator
Obama was punkin' his way into the White House with all the self-assurance
of a Chicago pimp with a Cadillac full of good looking white ho's? On
Dec20.2007 Obama sat down with Charlie Savage of the
Boston Globe and answered some very, very direct questions. As we
know now, the answers were, like so much of Obama's rhetoric, total BS designed
to tell the public what they wanted to hear.
Here are some excerpts that are particularly relevant today:
“The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally
authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an
actual or imminent threat to the nation"
"As President, I will not assert a constitutional authority to deploy
troops in a manner contrary to an express limit imposed by Congress and
adopted into law.” [Restricts his comment to troops.]
"It is illegal and unwise for the President to disregard international
human rights treaties that have been ratified by the United States Senate,
including and especially the Geneva Conventions. The Commander-in-Chief power
does not allow the President to defy those treaties."
"Warrantless surveillance of American citizens, in defiance of FISA, is
unlawful and unconstitutional."
