The oath he took in January 2007:
“I, (name of Member), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
just asking… I mean really what does an oath mean if you can not only scorn it but literally act against that oath and the constitution with impunity?
Joe Biden recently said, “If you call that a ‘redistribution of income’ — well, so be it. I don’t call it that. I call it just being fair — giving the middle class taxpayers an even break that the wealthy have been getting.” Now, liberals are pretty well-trained to avoid the “redistribute wealth” and similar phrases, but again they don’t understand why it’s a bad thing other than it makes people angry. As Biden says, and lots of liberals think, it’s just being fair. Why would people be against being fair?
Then we had Rep. Phil Hare stating how he doesn’t care about the Constitution if it gets in the way of helping sick people. The thing I find remarkable about that video is how hapless he look in that video. He thinks he’s saying something heroic — “I won’t let some silly document get in the way of me helping sick children!” All he’s doing is expressing an attitude that’s pretty pervasive among liberals (how many have taken the Constitutional question of Obamacare seriously and not just handwaved “the Commerce Clause covers that”?); why would people be angry about it?
That’s the thing with liberals: They’re not being mean-spirited or anything; they just don’t understand. They see all the anger out there and it just confuses them. It’s like when SarahK and I play Trivial Pursuit on the ground and then our dog comes over all happy to greet us and walks on the board and knocks all the pieces off. We yell at her, but she has no idea what she did wrong.
Which leads to this point: The solution to liberals — shock collars.
