so they are now saying that he lacks standing - and people voted for Obama - and he can show no injury - so who cares !
If that is the case, then why do we just strike out those portions of the Constitution that may present an inconvenience for some.
so how about these - Do they mean anything at all ? If a representative or senator was voted in "by the people" but was in 18 years old, or is not a US citizen, or does not reside in the district or State in which he was elected, there is nothing that can be done, as using the logic above, no one has standing and there is no injury ?
That are arguing that The constitution is: Toilet paper.
