President Obama “the Un-Constitutional” Scholar

I had to use a lot of imagination on one of the cartoons below. I had never depicted a nun before. So I had to “fake it” on their habits(?). The story-line is a little cryptic, but it will sink in. It is similar to the other cartoon which has another Obama-SCOTUS-defeat as its theme. I just read that there have been approximately twelve (12) SCOTUS defeats for Obama. Most were unanimous. (Oh…oh…it just occurred to me that I may have misspelled “repression” in the border cartoon.  I’ll have to check. Leaving a misspelling in a cartoon is a worse disaster than Obama’s SCOTUS trouncing…at least for me.) Anyway…he’s had his head handed to him on his violations of Constitutional issues that have gone up for SCOTUS review. Which raises two questions.

1) Why does Obama so often violate the Law of the Land and get his hand slapped by SCOTUS? No clear answer springs to mind. We’ll think about it. My personal belief is that he is a scofflaw.

Assuming he is not a scofflaw and does care about the Law of the Land, let’s go to the second question.

2) Since the Prez claims to be a Constitutional “Scholar” why does he always get it wrong? If he isn’t intentionally violating the Constitution, but he is so frequently at variance with SCOTUS, is he a dummy? Hmmmmm…. Consider…he appointed two of the justices. Sure they were politically motivated appointments, but wouldn’t that indicate those two would be more apt to vote for his position. Nope! Once, Justice Kagan even expressed dismay at Obama’s silly arguments in one case. You would expect he could have counted on the “Home Town refs” coming down in his favor. Particularly if Harvard is your home town. But, nope, again. And many of these loser cases he has spawned before SCOTUS were unanimous against him. As Dad would say down on the farm, “Even a blind hog finds an acorn now and then.” But not Obama.  He can’t even get a justice on his side by accident.

So…like the two nuns…I’m wondering what kind of scholar our Prez really was. Was his scholarly status …quoting the nuns (that I drew entirely from imagination…pretty good, huh?) …was it entirely self-imposed? Are his academic laurels homemade? I’ve never heard he won any academic distinctions. In fact, I’ve never heard of anyone who was a student of his while he was teaching Constitutional Law at Chicago.  That fact is almost as strange as never hearing from any of his former girlfriends, who are (if you don’t count “Ms. Composite” who he told us about once) scarce as hen’s teeth. Almost as strange, but not nearly as unsettling. Remember how Bill Clinton’s girlfriends came out of the woodwork. Clinton’s “bimbo eruptions” came out because he had been such a rotten abuser and user of women. Maybe Obama’s girlfriends didn’t think him a rotten guy, but if that was true, wouldn’t they be even more eager to grab the limelight to show what an adorable fellow he was/is? But, that is a topic for another day…and I don’t even want to think about it. He is a “bill of goods” we were sold by the sycophantic press dorks and the dummies (pardon me…”uninformed”) people) who voted for him. OK…you folks got faked out because his past was hidden, but isn’t that good cause to NOT vote for a person. Would you hire a nurse maid to care for your children if you knew nothing about the potential hire?

I exercised my imagination to draw the habits for the nuns. I’m trying hard to now imagine why Obama gets a good sound groin-kick every time from SCOTUS. Like the nuns…I’m coming up with “ZIPPO.” I’m trying to imagine why he is still in office instead of being impeached. Double ZIPPO.

Now…I’m trying to imagine why those round-house groin kicks don’t seem to hurt him. But…I think I know …along with you …along with the world … what he is missing, causing him to feel none of those kicks. He isn’t numb. It’s just a matter of missing anatomy.

I am an attorney in Las Vegas who has always wanted to draw political cartoons, partly because I like drawing, but mostly because I enjoy ridiculing pompous know-nothings. Verbally debating them gets nowhere. They don't know they're beaten. But poking fun at them in a drawing leaves them without recourse or rebuttal. What can they do...? Call me names, whine, cuss me ... or maybe draw a witty riposte? Unlikely.
