Obama: Changing America

Everyone that voted to revolutionize America ought to be proud of the change Obama is already promising to Americans. Read here, here, here, here and here to see how excited the left actually is. Next on his list is changing the constitution.

You heard right, the former Constitutional Law professor is set to either outright defy or finagle a loop hole so he can appoint Billary as the Secretary of State. Article 1, section 6 of the Constitution reads:

"No Senator or Representative shall, during the Time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil Office under the Authority of the United States which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof shall have been increased during such time; and no Person holding any Office under the United States, shall be a Member of either House during his Continuance in Office."

In other words, if a Senator (Billary) voted to increase the pay for Secretary of State (future Billary) during her time as a Senator, then she can't be appointed to that same office.

I guess he was right by saying he was going to change America.

for the record, my post wasn't referring to your lovely posts... which i know you know already. and on this point that you have addressed here, i actually have to agree with you. i am oozing with disappointment that someone i respect is willing to sink to the depths of governmental society and appoint billary. unconstitutionally, no less. but at least she's better than sarah palin. (barely.) i'm just trying not to think about it. sigh.

Good point. Although our good friend gifted us a Moose steak and some ground Moose for burgers. As soon as we cook that up I'll have my final decision on Palin.
