The college Constitution professor is DEAD WRONG on the Constitution. The scenario he describes is not reality. Bribes to Congressional members, parliamentary parlor tricks, and one body “deeming” that the other passed bills are not what the framers had in mind. He obviously didn't study the concept of “checks and balances”, or dismissed it along with his disdain of the Constitution as a “charter of negative liberties”. This guy is evil, anti-American, and treasonous.

("Blazing Saddles" explains it all.......)
One of the main and accepted theories of the Court is that it WILL NOT look at malfeasance or corruption or anything else in the legislature over whether a law is good or not.
I know, I know. It is outrageous and I was boiling mad when I read it, but that’s the way it is.
I might be able to find the reference, but I have probably 5 million pages of legal references on my machines, so give me 20 minutes or so...

(Obama - the "OJ verdict" of presidents!!)
There’s an old video/interview where he declares that the constitution is “too restrictive”. He might be a “constitutional scholar” but that is very different than actually agreeing with it, which he doesn’t.
