71. Dennis doesn't know the Constitution
Dennis looked like a fool when he said that the first thing he would do is withdraw from NAFTA and GATT, and then he was especially disingenuous when he challenged the other candidates to make that same promise. Except that the president doesn't have that authority, and when you look at that along with his stance on a flag-burning amendment, I am getting the impression that Dennis doesn't have much more respect for the Constitution than Bush does. Dennis seems to feel that the president is entitled to unilaterally withdraw from treaties. Just like Bush.
