Obama obviously lacks respect for Constitution, American public

By ELMER L. HENDERSON Paducah

EDITOR:

The American people are allowing themselves to be saddled with a debt for which they are receiving nothing in return, and for which our children will have to pay.

The lack of respect our president has for our Constitution could not be more obvious when he stands before the American people and tells them, as he speaks, that he has a pen and a telephone and he will do as he pleases.

This president has bought the people's vote and support with their own tax dollar. In the process he has shown you, the American people, how little respect he has for the American public. In the process of doing this, he has arrogated to himself more power and authority than the Constitution delegates to him.

I would suppose there are people with the supposition that I have a dislike for him because of his race or color. Please give me a break on this. I can think of men I would support and vote for if they could get the nomination, Thomas Sowell, Allen West, Dr. Ben Carson, Sen. Marco Rubio, and there are others.

No person has a right to presidential power if they do not have a love for and dedication to our Constitution and all it stands for. Any lack of dedication to our Constitution as written and understood should apply to anyone seeking public office in our country.
