Yes, you can meet with Barry. Here's how

"What you have with Barack Obama is a lack of character"
Early Obama enabler, Steve Rogers

Res Ipsa Loquitur

There are two chapters in The Amateur that deal with how  Obama treats supporters, even big time supporters, after he's through with them.  Guess what?  They ain't around for 2012, and Obama is panicking. (Just now, while I was prepping this post, I ran across this on Drudge - "... switches from 2008 Obama  bundler to Romney backer" ). 

And here's Steve Rogers, a "Day One" Obama supporter and money man.  His sentiments are those of damned near everybody who thought they had a "friend" in Obama, from Oper to Caroline Kennedy.(LOL).  (page 33)

If We Took the Constitution Seriously, Obama Would Be Impeached ....

If the citizens of this Republic still took the Constitution seriously, Obama would be impeached for his decision to unilaterally grant amnesty to certain illegal aliens.

Article 1, Sec. 8 of the Constitution, which enumerates the power of Congress, states that "Congress shall have the Power To... establish an [sic] uniform Rule of Naturalization." Congress has passed numerous laws pertaining to immigration and naturalization, including laws requiring the deportation of illegals.

The role of the President, according to Article II, Sec. 3, is to "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed." Obama's refusal to execute Congress's immigration laws (or, for that matter, Congress's Defense of Marriage Act) is an impeachable offense. Article II, Sec. 4 states that the President "shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for... Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors." The deliberate failure to enforce valid immigration law and allow hordes of foreigners to live and work in the U.S. is, arguably, "treason," and doing so in an election year to appease Hispanic voters could certainly be considered "bribery."

In theory, Obama could exercise his power in Article II, Sec 2. to "grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States" and offer a blanket pardon for all violators of immigration law. He's not doing that, because he'd certainly lose in November if he did. (However we should be concerned that if he does lose in November, he'll do it anyway on his last day in office).*

The upshot of Obama's policy not only to allow hundreds of thousands of illegals to live and work in the U.S. during a time of 8 to 10% unemployment, but even worse, since the vast number of illegals we're talking about are Hispanics eligible for affirmative-action preferences, to actually get preferential treatment over native-born Americans.

[American Thinker cont]

* Suppose he did issue a blanket pardon.  All that would accomplish is to keep violators of immigration law from prosecution for those past violations.  It would not cover the new violations that occur if they continued to violate the law — by staying here illegally.   Seems to me, anyway.

As to the article's premise (If We Took the Constitution Seriously, Obama Would Be Impeached .... ), that we do not take it seriously is manifestly (50 Impeachable Crimes and Counting) obvious.

I didn't know you were black. Reading your stuff  suggested you're a Liberal racist, and a pretty stupid one. Now that I know you're a black man, all that's changed  is that you're now a  black racist.  Shame on you for squandering the American opportunity.
