Rep. Gosar Doesn't Believe In His Oath Of Office

Look what happens when Rep. Paul Gosar (R,AZ) tells Conservative Activists that fighting for the Constitution is a losing battle? He states, "Be careful what you tread here folks, because if all you do is stand just for the Constitution and nothing less, you will lose."

The video below shows fireworks as Unite In Action's Director of Legal Affairs KrisAnne Hall and 912 Project National Co-Chair, Unite In Action President, Stephani Scruggs respond to the moronic remarks of this Arizona Congressman.

This took place at The National Republican Club of Capitol Hill, commonly known as the Capitol Hill Club, in Washington DC on June 28th, 2012.

I particularly liked the rebuttal, and hope that it jarred something in this Congressman, otherwise they truly need to replace him come election time. Obviously this poor excuse for a Congressman does not take his oath of office seriously:
Article VI of the U.S. Constitution requires that Members of the U.S. Congress be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution. Members-elect of the U.S. House of Representatives typically take the Oath of Office on the House Floor on the first day of a new Congress, immediately after the Speaker of the House has been elected and sworn in.

The Speaker administers this oath:

“I, (name of Member), 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” (5 U.S.C. §3331).
The Constitution cannot defend itself.
We must be the defenders and protectors.
