"After eight years of trashing the Constitution, we have an administration that actually respects the document."

Obama has shown that he doesn't even get the Constitution. He has puclicly said that the lack of "positive rights" (i.e. what the government must do for you) vs. "negative rights" (what the government cannot do to you) is due to a "blind spot" among the founders. This statement betrays a profound lack of understanding -- both of the process by which the Constitution was created, and the purpose it sought to achieve.

Obama's words show he sees the Constitutional restraints on government power as an impediment to his agenda. Only a tyrant at heart would have such a view.

That’s what is concerning me now ... he’s not yet in office and look what’s happening to the economy just by what he’s been saying, then too, look at the run on guns and ammo ... I went with my dad to Walmart to buy some more and they were pretty low. We asked about shipments and they said it was slow .... one person was buying ammo just because ... he didn’t own any kind of gun ...
