Obamanation!

I accept that 53 % of the American People voted for Obama last Tuesday. I do however have some major concerns. How did a self described socialist whack job become President of the United States of America?

The number one job of President is to honor and defend the Constitution of these United States. How can Obama even pretend to do this when he has come out and stated that in his mind the Constitution is inherently flawed. He wants to give judges the ability to legislate from the bench. This has been the single most problematic effect of activist judges.

When the founders created the three branches of government they split the legislative branch so that corruption could not overtake the whole branch. They created the Executive branch as a safeguard for the Constitution, to look after her interests. The founders, having studied in great detail, all governments from the Roman Republic to English Parliamentary procedure, were very careful to make sure there were checks and balances between the legislative and executive branches. They so highly regarded judges of the time, they did not spell out what judges could NOT do. They did however charge that the Supreme court was only to judge whether laws were constitutional. To uphold the constitution. They have strayed a little from this, no?

And we have all these additional levels of judges that are completely unnecessary. The constitution gives congress the right to establish these lesser courts 'as needed' but they have the same mandate. We the people need to bring back judicial accountability.

I think what bothers me more than what Obama has professed to want to do as President is that so many of my fellow Americans either chose to ignore this or just plain don't care. I am not sure which is worse.

I am disappointed in the people of this country. Not for voting differently than me, but for voting someone into office who absolutely has no business as the leading defender of the United States Constitution!

What an OBAMANATION!

I really think the problem here isn't Obama. The Democrats got the best candidate to represent their point of view. The problem is the GOP giving us a virtual Democrat to vote for. When given a choice between two evils, things are going to be close. Youth, energy, the minority card, and pretty words were bound to tip the scales.

What is appalling is that the Republican party couldn't find someone- anyone- better.

I agree with Summer on this point. I certainly didn't want to vote for McCain but felt I HAD to because Obama was so much worse.

On the other hand, I do not agree that Obama isn't a problem. The words that have come out of his own mouth should frighten every man, woman, and child within ear shot! I do realize though, that most men, women, and children were never given the opportunity to hear the nutty things he's spoken because the liberal media was too busy getting their feet warm under the blanket with him to actually report truth.
