President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid don’t have much respect or use for the Constitution. That much is made plain by their actions.
The Senate leader recently ditched a couple centuries’ worth of tradition by scuttling the chamber’s filibuster rules – rules which help protect the minority party and the constituents that they represent – so that he and Obama can fill the D.C. Circuit Court, the nation’s second most important, with a bunch of liberal jurists.
Obama, as president, however, wields much more power – and as such, the potential for much more abuse and tyranny. That observation was recently made by legitimate constitutional scholars during a testimony before a House panel examining Obama’s recent and past abuses of power.
Their analysis: Obama’s leading the country into some very dangerous waters, politically, and worse, his actions could have long-term adverse effects on our system of government.
