Now that you've so painstakingly pointed out the rights and responsibilities of the people's elected officials -- please enumerate the rights and responsibilities of the people.

Either you did not read Article 1 section 8 in its entirety, or you deliberately left out over two thirds of the text pertaining to the Power of Congress. The remaining Powers are: To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States;

To establish Post Offices and post Roads;

If Obama was voted in because of color....then Bushy boy must have been voted in because of his last name....

DonnaMay, why did you feel a need to re-post this?

Were you hoping it would make more sense the second time around?

You are the very definition of "troll."

OK Rugby Reader Where are Obama's grades from College?

Usually when a guy runs for POTUS he is not afraid to display his grades.. In doing so he shows the whole country the level of intelligence he posses..

Did Obama show his no!~!! @We were suppose to take his word.. Day after day we see him Lie and lie and lie.. And we are suppose to vote for a liar?

Only a fool would vote for a guy who lies thru his teeth and votes Present every time an issue came up in his past.

Obama is not smart enough to do this job as is being seen by all the world leaders as he spies on their countries phone calls ..

Obama is a loser.. You can paint him any color you want.. that does not make him intelligent or a good Prez!!!!

No Rugby your making the reference.. I'm trying to explain in plain English you cannot seem to understand that its Obamas lack of leadership that has 1/2 the country disliking the person.. because you can only see black and white then you think because he is black we dislike him.. Like I said before he could be sky blue pink but that won't make him one single bit better at leadership.

he wasn't even a good community organizer.. Why would a guy who graduated Harvard take a job as a community organizer? Was he not good enough to ge5t something with a paycheck? The guy has been wrong from the beginning but you guys just keep following the fool.. It amazes me that after 5 years you still think he is doing a great job.. I guess if your into the destruction of America then maybe he meets your goals..

Rugby I bet you lose thousands of dollars at the race track betting on the prettiest car..or the pretties horse or picking one with an interesting name and never knowing anything about what it takes to win a race..

Can't believe what falls out of your ante military mouth.

Racism in Rugbys mind is any one who has an R after their politicaL PARTY.

Lets see if I can explain this in easy to understand English for Rugby who only has about 3 words in his vocabulary.

If you go to a horse sale (I have attended many) Do you walk in and buy the prettiest horse in the ring because it's an albino or a black beauty.. Or do you look at the pedigree and research the back ground to see if the horse you are bidding on is of a decent bloodline to be able to improve the quality of the horses you raise??

ANY dammmm fool knows you find out the background of your breeding stock. You just don't buy because its a pretty color and expect to improve your bloodlines..

Ignorance at its finest. Elect Obama because he is black and you want to prove a point..

Point Proven!!! He is not qualified to be the President of the United States.. but the dumb fumble and bumbled along behind him as he destroys America..

Obama was the very first Prez ever elected on the color of his skin and not on his ability to lead the country..

What would liberals complain about if Obama was all white instead of half white? What if he had been born with white skin instead of black skin? Would he have not been elected? Would we have not had to give him a pass on his stupidity and dumb decisions he makes?

Will Its not what Obama has done.. Its what he hasn't done and what he claims he doesn't know..

He is trying to slip out of all the scandals by saying he knows nothing..

Either is is a liar or a fool or just plain dumb.. Take your pick.. he fits them all..

So Obama is in a Gay pride march huh? Guess I missed that one but it doesn't surprise me..

notea4me.. Don't matter what color his skin is.. He cannot handle the job.

Go ahead and blame all his problems on his skin color but under the hair is suppose to be a brain.

I cannot help it if the guy is dumb.. His policies stink and you Dems know it as well as I do.. You use race to try to make him a hero.. he could be sky blue pink but he still is an extremely poor excuse of a President and he is NO Leader..

So you play the race card.. but it won't help the situation the country is facing.. Dumb is dumb and dumb is not a color.. Comprehend?

Your so full of hope that all this stuff will go away.. Sorry lil buddy it ain't leaving. Obama will still be forced to answer and explain all the scandals he is involved in..

Just watch and see.. He is just beginning to feel the real heat coming his way..

What a legacy.. Killed people in Benghazi, has the IRS target political groups so he could win the election, had the DOH target the news people so he could get even with Fox and now Snowden has spilled the beans and made Obama look like a bigger fool then he already is..

Seems his parade is getting rained on day after day..Now boys don't forget to send Daddy Obama a fathersday card.. He needs all the love he can get. from his lil boys,...
