(National Sentinel) So Much Winning: When it came to the law and discussion of his legal positions, Barack Obama liked to brag to people that he was once a “constitutional law professor.”
What he was, in reality, was a ‘constitutional law lecturer.’ He held a part-time position at the University of Chicago as a “lecturer.” And he wasn’t much into that, either.
That said, he didn’t do too well when it came to constitutional issues. He repeated overstepped his bounds as head of the Executive Branch, and in at least some cases he was swatted down by federal courts.
As a final indicator of just how pronounced Obama’s constitutional ignorance really is, it turns out that the Trump administration under Attorney General Jeff Sessions knows our founding document and the law a lot better, as the Washington Times reports:
The Justice Department under Attorney General Jeff Sessions reversed positions of the Obama administration in four cases decided by the Supreme Court this year — and won all four of them.
They included constitutional technicalities, such as whether a certain set of appointments needed Senate confirmation, and politically charged cases over cutting names from voter lists and labor unions charging dues to unwilling workers.
“In four cases, after careful review, we changed the department’s position in order to follow the law,” Mr. Sessions said Wednesday as the court closed out its term. “The favorable Supreme Court decisions in all four cases reflect that we took the proper course of action. The decisions speak for themselves.”
Reversals of position at the department are a big deal and set tongues wagging in legal circles.
Obama and his sycophantic attorneys general, Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, weren’t interested in the rule of law or upholding the Constitution.
They were interested in iron-fisted authoritarianism and Left-wing political advancement.
