Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

"It's All Bush's Fault": Episode 572

I found this on the Daily Caller article that describes the 2012 Obama campaign not having any new ideas...except blaming everything on Bush!  From the comments,
George Bush, who doesn't have a vote in Congress and who no longer occupies The White House, is to blame for it all.
He broke Obama's promise to put all bills on the White House web site for five days before signing them.
He broke Obama's promise to have the congressional health care negotiations broadcast live on C-SPAN.
He broke Obama's promise to end earmarks.
He broke Obama's promise to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.
He broke Obama's promise to close the detention center at Guantanamo in the first year.
He broke Obama's promise, to make peace with direct, no precondition talks with America 's most hate-filled enemies during his first year in office, ushering in a new era of global cooperation.
He broke Obama's promise to end the hiring of former lobbyists into high White House jobs.
He broke Obama's promise to end no-compete contracts with the government.
He broke Obama's promise to disclose the names of all attendees at closed White House meetings.
He broke Obama's promise for a new era of bipartisan cooperation in all matters.
He broke Obama's promise to have chosen...

...and that's all Mr. Obama has been able to say for the past three and a half years. He still refuses to take responsibility for adding 70% to the national deficit...nor accept responsibility for the regulatory strangle hold his administration has placed upon American businesses. 

Last week, a journalist was excoriated for simply asking a "hard" question  of the president...something 99% of the DC press corps has refused to do.  Eventually, Mr. Obama will have to face voters and aswer for what his administration has done.   I suspect that he'll use the Jimmy Carter precident of being "retired by the voters."...
