In case it wasn’t obvious before

If Senator Obama’s answer to Joe the Plumber didn’t make it obvious enough, Bill Whittle takes his 2001 NPR interview by the numbers, showing not only that socialism was his viewpoint then, but also the lack of respect this “Constitutional scholar” has for the Constitution itself.

I guess he was lying when he said, “I was a constitutional law professor, which means unlike the current president I actually respect the Constitution.”

I find it hard to reconcile that declaration with “… but the Supreme Court never entered into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And uh, to that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution … ” expressed as a regret. (Emphasis added by me.)

I doubt I’m getting my name on a list, given that I’m an obscure blogger who doesn’t concentrate on political matters. After all, I’m not a Joe Wurzelbacher, a radio interviewer, or a television station, or even a student journalist.

Update: A question I’ve seen at a number of sites … given Obama’s feelings about the Constitution, can he take the oath of office in good conscience?
