The FIGHT for The RIGHT!

Obama Shows his Lack of Knowledge and Judgement!

It’s a Q&A with Barack Obama December 20th in the Boston Globe, Charlie Savage wrote the story.  Try this one.  This is number five.  “Does the Constitution permit a president to detain US citizens without charges as unlawful enemy combatants?”  Obama’s answer:  “No. I reject the Bush Administration’s claim that the President has plenary authority under the Constitution to detain U.S. citizens without charges as unlawful enemy combatants.”  Memo to Obama:  It is not the Bush administration’s position.  The Supreme Court held in 2004 — this is the famous case, US vs. Hamdi.  The president has the power to detain American citizens without charges as enemy combatants.  Now, I just have to think here — I don’t know what to think.  He’s either ignorant or he’s saying something far more dangerous.  If he is saying that he’s not bound by the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the law, liberals would have a stroke if Bush claimed the kind of authority that Obama is claiming in this — and ignorance.  

Think about this, think long and hard about this.

  1. Actually he’s right. Even Scalia said that there’s no right to hold a U.S. citizen unless Habeus was suspended by Congress. That’s the point of the word “plenary.” I wouldn’t mess with a Con Law professor who taught at the U of Chicago.

  2. My guess is that you are going to have a truckload of such mistakes to right about on this guy.

    When he finally has top explain what he will “CHANGE”, folks are going to discover that he is nothing but an empty suit

  3. But he used the word “plenary,” so that makes him sound smart and convincing. Plenary means complete I believe.
    Are you saying because Scalia opposed it’s not possible?
    It’s done!

    a political candidate does not have to know what he is talking about, look at how many times Dick Durbin and Ted Kennedy have been elected.as long as he can make the sheeple believe he knows what he is talking about.

    None of this changes the fact Obama should not be President. I will have further posts about what Obama does not know that he should. Stay tuned!
