Senator Dick Durbin has never been accused of being the brightest man in ANY room. However as a 3-term Senator one would at least expect him to know the basics of the U.S. Constitution that he swore an oath to defend. No such luck, as Durbin led off the first hearing of his pet ‘DREAM Act’ by asking all the illegals in his audience to stand up (you know, the ones ‘hiding in the shadows’) and then says he sees in them our future “doctors, our teachers…our senators, and maybe our president.”
Uh, Senator, try reading Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution, which says: “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.” So not even a LEGAL immigrant can EVER be President. Sigh.
