Where in the oath for representatives does it mention respecting and honoring the president?

Support and defend the constitution is what the oath says.

It is freedom of speech. She doesn't lose it when she steps to the floor of the house or anywhere else. She's just as free to say stupid stuff as Republicans have in the past. Do you not remember when the Dems called for Moneybags Mitch's head when he said his job was to make Obama a one-term president? www.politico.com... There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth on the part of Dems.

Both are excellent examples of elected officials who have no actual voters. No matter how hard I try, I can't find half a dozen people in Kentucky who will admit that they have voted for Moneybags for the past decade or more. Problem is, when the Dems run someone against him, they are as dirty as he so the choice is do you want pond scum or sewage run-off representing us?

Yes, I expect that a few of her constituents would be okay with her focus on removing Trump. They're trembling in their booties at the thought that he might require them to work in return for their food, shelter, education and health care. When our governor suggested that able-bodied, adult people receiving Medicade benefits should have to work a few hours a week, you would have thought he suggested sending them deep into the coal mines for weeks at a time.

Yea you might wanna go actually read the oath that representatives take. The President is a) not their commander in chief since they're civilians and b) not mentioned at all in their oath.

Nor is the OFFICE of the President.

Nor is respecting anything, or anybody. Support and defend the constitution and bear true faith and allegiance to same. That's it.

She's not employed by the President or in the federal bureacracy. She is a duly elected House Representative*.

The Form of the Oath

The founders decided to require an oath for federal and state officials—absent a religious test—in the Constitution, but the specifics—such as the wording of the oath—were left to the First Congress (1789–1791). In its first act, Congress specified the wording: “I, A.B. do solemnly swear or affirm (as the case may be) that I will support the Constitution of the United States.” This oath was used for all federal officials except the President, whose oath was prescribed specifically in the Constitution (Article II, section 1, clause 8).

The form of the oath has changed several times since that first act of Congress. During the Civil War, Congress mandated that the oath bar from office anyone who had been disloyal to the Union. Eventually, those elements of the “iron-clad” oath were dropped during revisions in 1868, 1871, and 1884. The oath used today has not changed since 1966 and is prescribed in Title 5, Section 3331 of the United States Code. It reads: “I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.” In contrast to the presidential oath, where it’s used only by tradition, the phrase “so help me God” has been part of the official oath of office for non-presidential offices since 1862.

LOL, funny, coming from an anti-American communist. Whatever, this is the testing point, everyone is putting their cards on the table, the future of the country and the world is being decided now. Choose wisely, or not, we'll all be dead soon enough, and the fate of the world will have no meaning to us.

The best part about the comment/comments you're replying to is that not only were they said to begin with, but at least two other people are so a) woefully ignorant about how the government is set up that think it's accurate or b) so ridiculously far up Trump's ass that they think everybody should be subservient to him or, god help us, c) both.

I didn't ask for gaffes or things she said. I asked about her policy history. Way to deflect.

I agree, she has freedom of speech.
The difference between what you correctly point out the gop doing and what she did is that she did this from the floor. This was not a stump speech, or an interview. This came from the floor of congress. The official congressional record will show:



“And my mission and my goal is to make sure that he does not remain president of the United States of America,” Water said.

She states her goal is to remove a sitting elected POTUS.

I looked for anything similar done from the floor of congress and found events like this prior to the civil war.
If you have info on a similar event transpiring from the floor of congress please post it.

I am not deflecting and you as usual have nothing to say. What do you know about her polices? Anything? Name something worthwhile she has passed or supported. You will find nothing but she has been investigated multiple times for curruption.

I asked YOU about how well you know her policies. You haven't answered yet, so I won't be letting you pass the buck back to me just because you failed. You have to admit your failure first.
