Apart from the fact that he is woefully ignorant of the U.S. Constitution, Senator Durbin seems unaware of the origins of the community organizer who is currently posing as U.S. president.
As reported at the reference, the never- to- be- mistaken- for- a-Mensa member Senator from Illinois, embarrassed himself with this asinine remark intended solely to pander to Hispanic voters:
"When I look around this room, I see America's future. Our doctors, our teachers, our nurses, our engineers, our scientists, our soldiers, our Congressman, our Senators and maybe our President."
Two immediate points jump out about this incredible faux pas:
( )Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution says: "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President."
( )Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, by electing Barack Obama as president, the U.S. has already “been there, done that” with the illegal alien nonsense.
Obviously, the "Obama experiment" has been an unmitigated disaster and should never be repeated!
Dick Durbin should read the U.S. Constitution before ceding the nation to illegal aliens!
