While searching for some information relative to the office of President of the United States, I ran across a very interesting web site, which I believe will be of interest to anyone who has an inquiring mind relative to history. If you have a few minutes I suggest you take a look at:
My original inquiry was to determine the exact words of the Presidential Oath which is as follows: “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.”
While there are many minds far more qualified than mine, it is my personal opinion that President Barack Obama is not fulfilling his Oath of Office as he is failing to provide security of our borders from intrusion by illegal immigration. It is thus judicious, appropriate, and necessary for State authorities, i.e., Arizona, to initiate local legislation to protect their residents from criminal elements illegally entering their boundaries.
The recent announcement to send a paltry 1,500 National Guard troops to the border is a pure political move meant to deflect or defuse public opinion that clearly establishes that 70% of the electorate want the border secured. Obama wants the Hispanic vote and is stalling appropriate action.
Additionally, you will find numerous interesting factoids related to earlier Presidents and Vice-Presidents, such as who took his Oath of Office outside the United States?
And should you still be confused about President Barack Obama referencing himself as a Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago, let me suggest you take a look at;
Read it for yourself and you will find that he was a Senior Lecturer who did not have tenure or full-time status. In academia there is a real distinction between Senior Lecturer and Professor. Just question any full-time tenured Professor.
Interesting facts make compelling reading, and thus one wonders if everything Obama says should be run through FactCheck.Org. Perhaps only his teleprompter or speech writer actually knows the real truth.
