Obama Administration: Lawless and Corrupt?

"The Obama administration is bold. It also is careless regarding constitutional values and is acquiring a tincture of lawlessness. . . The administration's central activity -- the political allocation of wealth and opportunity -- is not merely susceptible to corruption, it is corruption." -George Will

One of the most amazing developments of the Obama administration is the lack of regard for the rule of law. No one, including me, ever would have expected a Constitutional Law lecturer at the University of Chicago to display such an utter lack of understanding of American personal liberties and the role of the United States Constitution,. This is especially troubling, given the vast number of lawyers educated at some of the finest law schools in the United States in the Obama White House. Political commentator George Will has addressed this issue in his column today, and I recommend it highly.
