Andy Tobin: Has Obama Ever Seen The Constitution?

Posted By on Wed, Jan 29, 2014 at 10:00 AM

I got an email from Rep. Andy Tobin last night. He’s running for congress in CD-1, and he has to earn the right (emphasis on “right”) to challenge Ann Kirkpatrick by getting through a crowded primary. His favorite email tactic is to tie Kirkpatrick to Nancy Pelosi, but hey, it was State of the Union night, so an Obama-Kirkpatrick link was low hanging fruit. “Sometimes I wonder if Obama and Kirkpatrick have even ever seen a copy of the United States Constitution,” he wrote, continuing, “because they sure don’t respect it.”

Gotta give Tobin some credit. He didn’t mention Kenya, Muslim, Socialist or Benghazi once. Gotta give Obama some credit too. If he managed to teach constitutional law at the University of Chicago without ever cracking the cover of the Constitution — wow, that man is good!

Tobin went on to say, “So we’ve decided to send both of them copies of our country’s supreme law.” Apparently he needs to raise some money to do it. “Help us send Obama and Kirkpatrick copies of the Constitution. Donate $5 today!”

I’d like to help, even though I’m not a Tobin supporter. I’m probably not as good at understanding the Constitution as Tobin must be, but I’m pretty excellent at using Amazon. Andy, if Obama and Kirkpatrick have Kindles, you can send each of them a copy for free. Otherwise, a Pocket Constitution with a lovely picture of a Founding Father on the front will set you back $1.50, or $1 if you have Amazon Prime.
