Autocratic Hypocrisy

Those of us who lived through the Cold War well remember the rather paradoxical names of the Communist countries.  The "Deutsche Demokratische Republik" (German Democratic Republic), The "Democratic People's Republic of Korea", "People's Republic of China," "People's Democratic Republic of Ethiopia," "Democratic Republic of Vietnam," and so on.

And, we well remember that none of the above were Democratic Republics.

Well, here's another misleading name:  "Constitutional Scholar," as applied to Øbama.  Remember back in 2007 when he said, "I was a constitutional law professor, which means unlike the current president I actually respect the Constitution."

My, how times have changed.  Too bad there isn't any published works attached to his name, his academic transcripts are still not available to the public, and I don't think there have been any interviews with any former students of his.

And how's this for another whopper, as found over at Cato (Will Congress Stop King Barack the First?): 
"But the worst hypocrisy here is Obama's. 'I've studied the Constitution as a student, I've taught it as a teacher,' he piously intoned in 2009: 'I know that we must never, ever, turn our back on its enduring principles for expedience's sake.'"
*snort*  *guffaw*

Well, we've already had a good look at how enduring these principles are in the eyes of Obama when his agenda must be expedited.
