BARACK OBAMA WAS IN FAVOR OF ATTACKING THE PATRIOTISM

Posted by PrestoPundit on 06/30/2008

of others, before he was against it

I love the fact that a guy whose closest political friends have slandered, cursed and even bombed this nation is now lecturing the rest of us about the true meaning of patriotism.  This is a man who as much as said that the he doesn’t love this country because of what it is or has been — but only loves it because of what he and other leftists might be able to make of it in the future if it they are allowed to transform it to fit to their utopian party line of the moment.

Obama has attacked the patriotism of those who wear flag pins.  And Obama has attacked the patriotism of those who’ve taken the country to war.  Somehow in Obama’s world those of us who fly our flag and wish our army victory during wartime just aren’t patriots like Obama and his America condemning friends.  And what I think of that is Barack Obama can go to hell.

SO UNPRINCIPLED

Posted by PrestoPundit on 06/30/2008

he makes Bill Clinton look scrupulous.  Of course having no principles is what being a lefty is all about.  Quotable:

I have never had any illusions about Obama. I merely note with
amazement that his media swooners seem to accept his every policy
reversal with an equanimity unseen since the Daily Worker would change the party line overnight ..

A WONDERFULLY PUT POINT

Posted by PrestoPundit on 06/26/2008

on Constitutional government from Justice Scalia:

We know of no other enumerated constitutional right whose core protection has been subjected to a freestanding “interest-balancing” approach [responding to Justice Breyer’s proposal for a new standard for the right to possess a gun]. The very enumeration of the right takes out of the hands of government – even the Third Branch of Government – the power to decide on a case-by-case basis whether the right is really worth [his emphasis] insisting upon. A constitutional guarantee subject to future judges’ assessments of its usefulness is no constitutional guarantee at all. Constitutional rights are enshrined with the scope they were understood to have when the people adopted them, whether or not future legislatures or (yes) even future judges think that scope is too broad. We would not apply an “interest-balancing” approach to the prohibition of a peaceful neo-Nazi march through Skokie… Like the First, it is the very product of an interest-balancing by the people – which Justice Breyer would now conduct for them anew.

IN A 5-4 VOTE THE SUPREME COURT

Posted by PrestoPundit on 06/26/2008

UPHOLDS THE CONSTITUTION, kinda, sorta.  In dissent, Justices John Stevens, David Souter, Ruth Ginsburg, and Stephen Breyer joined together in issuing a minority edict directing the President to stamp “VOID” in thick black ink over the 2nd Amendment on the copy of the U.S. Constitution now in the National Archive.  It was widely anticipated that the President would ignore this edict, unless the four were joined by a fifth.  It was not clear at this time whether the President would be personally charged with the task of apply the ink blotter to the historic document.
