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.
