Why aren’t the Democrats emphasizing Obama’s experience teaching Constitutional Law for over 12 years?

Since he taught Constitutional Law for 12 years at the University of Chicago, it puzzles me why his supporters are not pointing to that as a big plus. I would think that a President having extensive knowledge of not only the law, but of the Constitution would make him more qualified to do his job.

I think it’s strange they aren’t trying to use this even a little bit.
Uhh… Larry. Calm down there, man. I’m not a Democrat. (Or a Republican, either.)

Because he has controversial beliefs about the Constitution….i.e. he believes it is a "living breathing" Constitution. This is not what our Founding Fathers intended.

    Because he has so many other talents and they don’t have to explain themselves like the POW and the beauty queen

    Most likely because McCain would attempt to use it to try to paint Obama as elitist, again.

    Its the only attack that is always in his repertoire.

    Because the Republicans have successfully cast all teachers and professors as God – dishonoring socialists.

    Is there a reason we need to be campaigning still? Your boy won it for us with his 70-something illogical campaigning. Thanks for the idea, though!

    Hypocrites typically say one thing and do another. Just like Obama. He teaches it but he sure doesn’t preach it.

    Maybe he was wrong in what he taught! He doesn’t know you have to be an American citizen to run for President. And He is Not! Ask democrat, former US Attorney Phil Berg who has a suite to that effect in Ohio.

    I agree. This is an interesting question. It seems there a lot of holes in Obama’s past that need to be answered. Eventually when the press gets past the worship stage, they will start to ask some of the harder questions. I am an eternal optimist. 🙂

    What constitutional lawyer (who actually learned/passed his course work) would give a totally wron/stupid answer as OBOY did at the saddleback interview???
    .OBOY stated ..cant support Constitutional amendment defining marriage as a M+F union BECAUSE "marriage was not mentioned/defined in the Constitution….DUH !! 13th Amendment??
    Guess he missed the fact that slavery was not mentioned/defined in the Constitution..Wow what other things did he not learn ..ther have been many Constitutional amendments …what about the 19th amendment? maybe Michelle told him….

    The answer is simple.

    Democrats hate the constitution because it limits government’s powers.

    You can’t "redistribute" (AKA Steal) the wealth from those who EARNED it, and give it to those who just WANT it, as long as the constitution is around.

    You can’t take the guns away from the people and there by the ultimate power in the USA, under the constitution.

    You can’t limit the speech of people who preach freedom (Rush) under the constitution.

    So, the real question is why do YOU, Mr. Democrat, think it would be some sort of badge of honor for a democrat to have tuaght constitutional law, when it impeads everything you love?

    Liberty or DEATH!
