oath of office

Just a quick note tonight. When George W. says that he took an oath to protect and defend the people, he is not getting it right,… exactly. Here is the oath of office he took:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
– oath of office

Protect and defend the constitution.
