genius Obama can’t veto balanced budget amdmnt


Earlier today Obama threatened he would veto the Cut, Cap, and Balance bill if it reaches his desk. Levin says the only problem with this is that, while he can veto the Cut and Cap part, if the Balanced Budget Amendment passes both the House and the Senate it goes to the states, not Obama. He’s got nothing to do with it.

One would expect a brilliant, ivy league Constitutional Law Professor to know these things:

You have to remember that Obama studied the Constitution using liberal glasses of distortion, whereby they simply announce that it’s a “living document”, and then toss it aside believing that it doesn’t apply to them. These are the same people who gave us an education system that has dumbed-down and failed our children. Then they have the nerve to snort and laugh with their fellow smarmy elites about how uneducated the people are.

Of course, 2/3 of the House must vote in favor, and then 2/3 of the Senate, in which case, the Amendment goes to the States for ratification. I am not clear on the inclusion of the Cut and Cap part of such a bill with a bill constituting an actual Amendment to the Constitution.

Levin is right on the Amendment, though. The President has nothing whatsoever to do with it, other than shout it down from the WH. The DOJ can’t even do anything to stop it, unless it runs afoul of the restrictions placed upon such a procedure, as outlined in Article V, which I don’t believe that it would.
