… Read the 22 times the Speaker’s Office found Obama saying he could not take the actions many expect him to take as early as this week:
1. “I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with [the president] trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all. And that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m President of the United States of America.” (3/31/08)
2. “We’ve got a government designed by the Founders so that there’d be checks and balances. You don’t want a president who’s too powerful or a Congress that’s too powerful or a court that’s too powerful. Everybody’s got their own role. Congress’s job is to pass legislation. The president can veto it or he can sign it. … I believe in the Constitution and I will obey the Constitution of the United States. We’re not going to use signing statements as a way of doing an end-run around Congress.” (5/19/08)

More than anything, it simply proves this man was NOT, is NOT qualified.
Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution sets the requirements to hold office. A president must: be a natural-born citizen of the United States;[note 1] be at least thirty-five years old; have been a permanent resident in the United States for at least fourteen years.

Pretty funny that the ultra conservative neo cons have all their jimmies rustled over something that almost every president has done.
