The oaths they take and the oaths they break

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.

Someone needs to show this to our Democratic "leadership". We expect the Republicans to break their oaths. But, I find it hard to stomach when Democrats forsake the Constitution.

"Mellow Journalism"

"The tendency to go along to get along". "I'll scratch your back if you give me access". "I'll print your lies if you answer my questions".

"I'll give you a free ride because you have power".
