GOP Rep: 'Only Constitution That Obama Upholds Is The Soviet Constitution'

President Obama has “no concept” of the U.S. Constitution, despite his previously being a constitutional law professor, Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Rather, he said, the president upholds the constitution of our old Cold War foe.

“I think my role is to uphold support and defend our Constitution,” Broun said. “The Constitution I uphold and defend is the one I carry in my pocket all the time, the U.S. Constitution.”

Obama on the other hand? Not so much.

“I don’t know what Constitution that other members of Congress uphold, but it’s not this one,” he added. “I think the only Constitution that Barack Obama upholds is the Soviet constitution, not this one. He has no concept of this one, though he claimed to be a constitutional lawyer.”

In the post, the Journal-Constitution‘s Jim Galloway included a few lines from the preamble of the most recent constitution of the Soviet Union (which of course is no longer the Soviet Union). It reads: “The Great October Socialist Revolution…overthrew capitalist and landowner rule, broke the fetters of oppression, established the dictatorship of the proletariat, and created the Soviet state, a new type of state, the basic instrument for defending the gains of the revolution and for building socialism and communism.”

Doesn’t sound like Obama’s inaugural address, he noted.
