That's Not What Your Oath Says, Senator
This morning, on the Senate floor, Senator Reid said, "We do what we can to protect the president of the United States."
My opinion of president Obama as an overreaching socialist with barely concealed dreams of dictatorial tyranny aside, did Sen. Reid maintain this same sentiment when President Bush was in office?
Did he do what he could to protect him?
I submit, that he did not.
Sen. Reid's statement was emblematic of hypocrisy.
His duty, the duty Sen. Reid swore to when he took office, was to protect the Constitution of the United States, not the president. I am of the opinion that to make the statement that he did on the Senate floor is a violation of his oath of office. Further, it is partisan to the extreme and certainly not in concert with the letter or spirit of the oath he took or the Constitution.
