Someone Reminds President Obama That We Are A Country of Laws
We know from our current President’s pedigree that he had a stellar education… gained from walking the respective academic halls of Columbia and Harvard Law School; yet, it is because we are privy to our President’s August education why we are left scratching our heads when President Obama disregard the basic governing principles of our fair republic: the first branch of our Democracy, the legislature under Article One, authors the laws; the second branch under Article Two, the Executive (President), executes said laws; and the Judiciary under Article Three, the courts, interpret the laws.
A couple of days ago, our brilliant, Harvard trained, lawyer President told the Justice Department to no longer enforce the laws recognizing that marriage is between a man and a woman. But as is the wont of President Obama, he thinks that we are so stupid that he coupled his edict to the Justice Department, by first saying that, he himself still struggles on the issue on whether marriage should be between a man and a woman, but that he doesn’t think the laws sanctioning marriage only between a man and woman is Constitutional – it is classic waffling by President Obama or what I have coined as the Marie Antoinette way of governing… you know… ‘having your cake and eating it too.’
This is not the first time President Obama has disregard the basic tenets of our Constitution; we all remembered how he favored the union workers… by displacing those who owned equities in Government Motors, oops, I meant General Motors when doling out the bail out monies and subsequently deciding who will be first in line for remuneration. As an attorney, and especially one who taught Constitutional Law, President Obama should intimately be aware of the import of the concepts and tenets of Contract law, which has been part of our laws for over 230 years.
This is not about my bias - my being a Traditional Christian - concerning the marriage issue; this is about the rule of law… where no one, not even the President can dictate what he thinks the law should be – not even our brilliant, secular messiah, President. By the way, Mr. President, who do you think you are fooling… with your supposedly fulsome adherence to traditional marriage? Lest I forget, all of Hollywood and the vast majority of the gays supported and are still supporting your Presidency. Let me once again convey a fact about the great Roman Statesman, Marcus Aurelius, who once employed a Roman citizen to remind him that he was only a ‘man’ and not a ‘God’… it seems an apt reminder for our President.
