A congressman unclear on the concept

When asked about the constitutional basis for ObamaCare, Illinois Representative Phil Hare (D-Combine) replied: “I don’t worry about the Constitution.”

Oh, really?  Waiting

The oath of a member of the House reads thus:

“I, …, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

Emphasis added, since Phil seems to need a reminder.

Sigh. So many bums to throw out of office, so little time.

    Clearly he doesn’t care about the Constitution. But once again, I’m dismayed by the fact that the interviewers are clearly disrespectful assholes. When you get your target to give you the money quote, you can certainly ask for clarification, but why gloat about it -in front of the guy-? Why call him a liar? There’s a huge gap between not believing that he read the bill and calling him a liar after he said he did. And clearly the interviewers didn’t read the bill either.

    The fact that they begin the interview in the middle of a shouting match is alarming for two reasons: one, they wound the guy up but didn’t show it, and two, who knows what they’d asked him already?

    Civil would be better. And pretty easy to do, too. Who knows what kind of other nutty stuff he might have said?
