An Oath to Defend...

You'd think a history buff ought to know this, but apparently Baby Doc doesn't seem to recall that he did not take an oath to defend the people of the United States, despite what he says. Instead he took an oath to defend the Constitution:

Article II Section 1 of the Constitution of the United States

"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."
His oath is right there, in the Constitution itself. That "goddamn piece of paper".

In and of itself this signals that George W. Bush has committed an impeachable offense. He has violated the provisions of the US Constitution by spying on American citizens without court approval, he has engaged in illegal searches, he has violated the rights of the people to be secure in the homes and their personal effects -- and if those lying motherfuckers in Congress, those hypocritical bastards who were SO quick to impeach Clinton over a lousy blowjob, had half a fucking testicle between them, they'd vote articles of impeachment on the crooked evil bastard.

But I guess it makes a big difference which political party is in office, doesn't it.

The oath has too many words with more than one syllable. I am sure he has no understanding of what he said. He could have been pledging to send his ass to another planet for all he knows.

He pledged basically the same thing when he went into basic training... didn't mean squat then either.
