Thank You.

That is the job of the judicial branch.

That said, what does Obama care about the Constitution since he said himself he will appoint judges who will “move us from the essential constraints the Founders wrote into the into the Constitution. IOW, he thinks that the Constitution is a “living document” open to different interpretations as time progresses.

That sort of thinking is more dangerous than anything Bush may have done.

Ohio Homeless Driven to Polls to Vote Obama
CLEVELAND — Volunteers supporting Barack Obama picked up hundreds of people at homeless shelters, soup kitchens and drug-rehab centers and drove them to a polling place yesterday on the last day that Ohioans could register and vote on the same day, almost no questions asked.

The huge effort by a pro-Obama group, Vote Today Ohio, takes advantage of a quirk in the state’s elections laws that allows people to register and cast ballots at the same time without having to prove residency.

Republicans have argued that the window could lead to widespread voter fraud because officials wouldn’t have an opportunity to verify registration information before ballots were cast.

Among the volunteers were Yori Stadlin and Vivian Lehrer of the Upper West Side, who got married last week and decided to spend their honeymoon shepherding voters to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.

Early today, Stadlin’s van picked up William Woods, 59, at the soup kitchen of the Bishop Cosgrove Center.

“I never voted before,” Woods said, because of a felony conviction that previously barred him from the polls. “Without this service, I would have had no way to get here.”

Please read Stanley Kurtz’ article called “Inside Obama’s Acorn” and tell us again how wonderful he will be for our country

Bush’s sentence-by-sentence speaking skills are deteriorating. Apparently, this may be due to a mental illness called “presenile dementia.” Bush may or may not be secretly still drinking heavily. Bush lied, and thousands of people died. Bush suffers from narcissism and megalomania. Moreover, Bush has been arrested three times. Bush was arrested for disorderly conduct. Bush was arrested for stealing. Bush was also arrested for a serious crime—driving under the influence of alcohol. There are reasons to believe that Bush suffers from a learning disability. Bush’s learning disability would explain a lot of things. All in all, Bush is a severely mentally ill individual. Bush is not fit to be the president of the United States.

Face it, Obama is a terrorist. He hates America and isn’t fit to lead his party off a cliff. Mccain is the only chance we have at remaining a free country. Obama only wants to take away our rights. Mccain has character and accomplishments. Obama has a speech. Just look at the people he associates with. Would you allow these people to be around your family and children? If Obama wins….I’m going to Canada or Mexico. If Mccain wins I’ll still be free!!!!!

U. S. Attorney General, Patrick Fitzgerald, as his choice for Attorney General. That selection alone would send certain members of Congress and this current administration into seizures.

To say nothing of the Iraqi dead.

The Democrats will investigate and possibly impeach Cheney and or Bush before the election or this opportunity for America to repudiate everything that this insane, evil pair stand for will be gone forever.

The time to find out if US House Democrats will honor their oath of office is now, before the election. Ask yourselves the question.

If they will not honor their oath to protect our Constitution, are they fit to be in office? Is lying about their oath to protect our Constitution something you as a voter approve of?

If they didn’t take their oath seriously, is there anything else they are fudging on? Like real single payer healthcare? If they don’t intend to honor their oath, are they actually in favor of subverting our Constitution?

This is the acid test all Democrats can use to evaluate whether the current House Democrats are fit to be in office.

We Democrats should be challenging all Democratic candidates for re-election to the US House of Representatives regarding holding impeachment hearings and do it every time they appear in public until the election, Unless you as a voter approve of Cheney and Bush getting 4,082 of our citizens killed for their WMD lies.
