#3 Nice touch there Mr. B. Ominous ring to it.

#4 Thanks Dale. The word "stray" is often used to describe those moments ["visiting 57 States" moment] when the Champ moves away from the teleprompter. Boortz used the reference "went off-teleprompter" vs "strayed". I personally prefer "strayed", but it does carry with it that awkward Canis connotation, which could be perceived as racist. But then again "OFF" might bug some people as well.

Just reminds me of the Zero/Whoever pulls his strings combination.

#6 Turn Champ loose without his teleprompter, a complicit media, and handlers; who knows what is possible? The truth might even emerge.

#7 An excellent response! It would be perfect if neal had pointed out, when 0bama steps off Marine One, to point out that it was made by private enterprise on contract to the Military. Y'know, that Eeeeevil Military-industrial complex you hyperventilated about.

#8 One other point: A troll may correctly point out that the Declaration of Independence is not the Law of the Land, and thus is not binding on 0bama or the federal government.
That is correct, and that is by design: Its to make sure it isn't abolished by Congress, declared unconsistutional by the Supreme Court, or have it subject to "discretionary non-enforcement" by Caesar wanna-be Presidents.

#9 The Declaration wasn't intended to be a body of laws. It was intended to be a "petition for redress of grievances". It was telling the King how patient his subjects had been at the abuse of the rights of all Englishmen, and asking him to stop it, or he may find himself without any subjects in the colonies.
So, really, it's still applicable.

#11 If you became president, you didn't do that. Somebody else made that happen.
But not again.
