“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” – Presidential Oath of Office, U.S.A.
If the President’s sworn duty is to honor the oath, above, and, as it says, “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” why is the current occupant of the White House ignoring this solemn promise, and isn’t it our moral duty as American citizens and freedom lovers to call for an investigation of his behavior?
- Obama refuses to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act.
- After the New Black Panther Party clearly disenfranchised white voters in Pennsylvania, Obama instructed his Justice Department to drop the matter and ignore the crime.
- Obama sent troops into Libya without Congressional approval, ignoring the War Powers Act of 1973—arguing that “international permission” was good enough.
- Obama refuses to enforce our immigration law—and even sues States who fight for the right to do so!
- And now we discover Obama lied to us about the Benghazi attacks that killed Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, because he wanted to keep his re-election campaign on track.
When the President of the United States puts his reelection campaign ahead of national security and the lives of Americans, it is time for him to go.
One of the most important characteristics in a President is honesty. We teach our children not to deceive, but then we turn on the news and watch our “leaders” do it with straight faces. Or, with laughter. If you are Joe Biden, you smile and grin and guffaw as you are saying that Chris Stevens and his staff never requested extra security, despite the fact that State Department officials testified they actually did, and were denied.
Outright lies and cover-ups are never acceptable. Unfortunately, we have come to expect and even accept lying from our politicians. Obama and his “Chicago politics” administration are intensely focused on next month’s election and will do whatever it takes to ensure Obama maintains power, even at the expense of our national security, and sadly, even at the expense of the law.
Last year, Bruce Ackerman wrote in the New York Times that by going into Libya without Congressional approval, “The White House has shattered the traditional legal process the executive branch has developed to sustain the rule of law over the past 75 years.”
Shattered…his is not a word we want associated with our President, our White House, our government, or our country.
Obama’s lies are unraveling since the hearings began on October 10th. Now, it is time to pay special attention to what the President did. If he willfully obstructed the truth about the Libyan attack from the American people—he should be impeached. Additionally, he should be brought to justice for his other transgressions against our Constitution and our country.
President Obama has stated clearly through his actions that he doesn’t care about America, and he certainly doesn’t care about America’s future. He is weakening our national security, decimating our Constitution, and setting dangerous precedents that can be easily abused by future Presidents—but he doesn’t care. He didn’t believe in our Founding principles in the first place, and when he took office he promised to “fundamentally transform” America. Congratulations, Mr. President. You have been a great success in that area—and now, it’s time to go.
It seems the “most transparent” administration in history is being deceitful and playing politics with our nation, just to stay in power. Fax Congress and insist they begin impeachment hearings and finally bring the truth to light.
