More On Constitution Day

Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA) has a great post at The Corner called Restoring Madison’s Vision.

It was Madison who, seeking to calm those who feared an all-powerful central government, wrote, “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined.” Let me repeat that: “few and defined.” Notwithstanding Madison’s clarity, today Congress considers and routinely passes legislation regulating virtually every conceivable human endeavor and enterprise.


My colleague John Shadegg of Arizona has proposed that every bill include a section that cites the specific constitutional authorization of the proposition. I commend John and think we can even go a step further. When there is a question about a bill’s constitutionality, we should set aside time during debate to focus on that question first. We shouldn’t proceed with legislation until we have resolved its constitutionality.

Cantor gets it. At the risk of repeating myself, this is what the Tea Party is all about. Restoring the Constitution.

How Is This NOT Major News?

Have you read this? Or part two of it? Whenever a White House insider broke ranks to tell us what was “really going on in the Bush White House” it was major news? Every single morning show would be trying to get this person on TV. Failing that it would at least be a significant topic of conversation.

But we have an Obama (D-USA) White House insider saying things like:

He clearly didn’t like the work of being President though, and that attitude was felt by the entire White House staff within weeks after the inauguration.  Obama the tireless, hard working candidate became a very tepid personality to us.  And the few news stories that did come out against him were the only things he seemed to care about.  He absolutely obsesses over Fox News.  For being so successful, Barack Obama is incredibly thin-skinned.  He takes everything very personally.


I saw first hand the President of the United States yelling at a member of his staff.  He was yelling like a spoiled child.  And then he pouted for several moments after.  I wish I was kidding, or exaggerating, but I am not.  The President of the United States threw a temper tantrum.


Obama is not up to the job of being president.  He simply doesn’t seem to care about the work involved.  You want to know what?  Obama is lazy.  He really is. And it is getting worse and worse.  Would another four years of Obama be the best thing for America? No it would not.  What this country needs is a president who is focused on the job more than on themselves.  Obama is not that individual.


Sarah Palin understands America more than Barack Obama.  Yes, she has a minority of our far left who hates her, and some in our media are part of that group, but overall, she seems to get America.  Americans aren’t a complicated people, and neither is Sarah Palin, so that probably works in her favor.  But President Obama is just out of touch.


He comes at it from the position of thinking he knows what we need because we don’t have the ability to know for ourselves.  And he doesn’t respect any opinion that is different from his own.  He just doesn’t care to know any other side to any given issue.  I really believe it’s a maturity thing.  I think our president needs to grow up.  I hate to put it that way, but there it is.  President Obama – grow up.

How is this not front page news?

What Liberal Media?

As they say, read the whole thing.

We The People

Today is Constitution Day in the United States and given the title of this blog, it’s only fitting that I recognize it. On this day in 1787, the Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution. We currently have a Congress and a White House that is intent on destroying our Constitution, but they haven’t completed the process and there’s still hope of restoring it. Here’s a clue, MSM, today is what the Tea Party is all about.

And, to repeat those words that every school child memorizes, but so few understand:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

It’s now time to secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity. On November 2, it’s up to you to do just that.
