On The Soapbox

Pardon me for taking a slight political turn, but... (well, it is my blog so I'm allowed. heh.)

Stumbled across this video of a recent Meet the Press segment.

Did she (she being Valerie Jarrett, co-chair of Obama's transition team) say what I think she said?

Listen...



Okay--go back and listen again. Around the 30-ish second mark.

Did she say Obama would "rule"?

Excuse me? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

Since when does a President rule? I just looked; nothing in Article 2 of the Constitution mentions "ruling."

I understood that Presidents "serve" their term in office. Have you heard of any U.S. President ruling the country? If you have, show me where. Title, author, page and line number, please.

You doubt she said it?

Transcript is here, my friends.

Nice going, folks. Well voted there.
