Elected Officials and the U.S. Constitution

How well do our elected officials “support and defend the Constitution of the United States,” which they swear to do when they assume office? Do they know what’s written in the Constitution?

Does President Obama, who taught constitutional law, support the U.S. Constitution?

 The congressional oath of office:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”
