    I love Romney’s answer in the first clip. Did he relax too much assuming that Ingraham would be nice to him because she is a conservative? Laughing at the question as if it was Ingraham that didn’t make sense is really weird. It adds fuel to the theory that he might be a psychopath. It’s exactly the sort of blunder such a person would do, being abnormally self-confident and relaxed.

    Despite an academic emphasis in Constitutional law, Obama has not been a guardian defender of the Constitution as the presidential oath of office requires. His endorsement of egregious provisions in the National Defense Act is but one example. Another is his continued support of George Bush’s faith-base initiatives that continue to siphon off unknown millions in taxpayer to advance religious causes. Obama has operated in direct contradiction to his 2008 campaign promise to end exploitation in these programs. Under Obama it’s been business as usual for TANF’s charitable choice clause cronies.
