Save Us From "The Experts"...
Glenn Reynolds highlights the Constitutional Law Candidate's ongoing battle against ... the Constitution!
Reader Carolyn Gockel writes: "Why Obama is Vulnerable On the First Amendment: The whole NRA flap is going beyond gun rights advocates...I'm not as pro-gun as you and I am furious." Yeah, and the bit with state law enforcement officials threatening critics is even worse. I wonder if the ACLU will weigh in on this one? Seems like a good opportunity for them to show their nonpartisan nature.
...from Jacob Sullum at Reason, Why Obama is Vulnerable On the Second Amendment.
MORE: Prosecutors and sheriffs threatening to prosecute Obama critics?
Check out this TV news report from St. Louis, too, which makes clear that the Obama campaign is behind this.
There's lots more - plus video! - where that came from. Kind of gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling inside, doesn't it; just knowing that come November we won't have a bunch of bumbling amateurs in the Oval Office?
The Obama-Biden slate is historic in many ways, but for law professors it has a special cachet: It's the first time that professors of constitutional law have occupied both slots on a ticket. Barack Obama was a senior lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School, and Joe Biden has been an adjunct professor at Widener University School of Law since 1991. More to the point, it's the most civil-libertarian ticket ever fielded by a major U.S. political party.
After 8 years of watching Barney the White House terrier savage the Bill of Rights, the American people deserve a President with the knowledge and integrity to protect our Constitutional rights:
Most American voters (60%) .... say the Supreme Court should make decisions based on what is written in the constitution, while 30% say rulings should be guided on the judge’s sense of fairness and justice. The number who agree with McCain is up from 55% in August.
While 82% of voters who support McCain believe the justices should rule on what is in the Constitution, just 29% of Barack Obama’s supporters agree. Just 11% of McCain supporters say judges should rule based on the judge’s sense of fairness, while nearly half (49%) of Obama supporters agree.
After all, it's only fair!

There is third choice for Supreme Court nominees, namely Internationalism. Let's throw out the constitution and go to the international court to decide how we will determine laws in this country.
Second guessing the founding fathers and the Constitution Convention attendees is arrogance.

More like "Senior-Lecturer-On-Leave." Sorta like Al G inventing the Internet...

Yep, the kind of .gov that will threaten it's citizens over speach they don't like is exactly the kind of .gov that I want to have all the guns.
Makes perfect sense. /sarcasm
