The enlisted men's oath requires them to obey the orders of the President, but the officers' oath does NOT. I believe it was designed to allow the military to forcibly remove a president from office in the event that he himself was not defending the Constitution, which would make him a domestic enemy. I'd feel much better if I knew that the military was making plans at this very moment to remove Obama! But who would initiate it? The Joint Chiefs of Staff?
