Obama, on Reddit, proposed overturning Citizens United
LA Times ^

Posted on 08/29/2012 7:09:58 PM PDT by Perdogg

In the middle of a rambling conversation on the website Reddit on Wednesday afternoon, President Obama proposed the idea of a constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s 2-year-old Citizens United decision.

Obama suggested that an effort to amend the U.S. Constitution would “shine a spotlight” on the after-effects of the decision, which paved the way for today’s unlimited political expenditures by political action committees.

Since it takes 3/4 of the states to ratify a Constitutional amendment, I don’t think we have too much to worry about.

I'm a bit distressed to learn Obummer has the time to even have rambling conversations on websites.

Has he obeyed the Constitution yet? We are dealing with a Chavez wannabe.

Hopefully asshat Obamugabe will be voted out in November, and his wet dream of putting a ball gag in the mouth of the American people will be denied.

I agree. I have often said the best way to combat the liberals is to agree with them four fold. If they want to tax the rich 10% more, then introduce the legislation to tax the rich 50% more. If they want to cut funding for the military 10%, then introduce legislation to cut it 50%.

Make them stop the legislation. Make them have to explain why they cannot support such legislation.

If they had to contend with a Constitutional Convention you would see them disappear into the hinterlands. Instead the wimpy Rinos allow the Dims to control the conversations.

No. But I guess there's always a first time. I'm glad some still have faith that he will. I for one do not have faith there will be a first time.

It’s all contrived crap. Notice how the campaign is doing the HS and college scene, again, for the brain-dead students who have NO experience at life...and are told how to vote through peer pressure and professors.

I smell desperation. The internals must be REALLY bad!

Reddit is not a dignified place for a president. It celebrates hatred, racism is par for the course, racist pornography is available without child checks, and in the past year had a forum dedicated to child porn. This is not the forum for a president to present any serious legislation.

What I find objectionable is he’s muscling in on *my* territory. Posting mindless rambling commentary is *my* job, not his!

This will get less votes than a DumBO budget.

I’m surprised the Constitution was even on the Liberal Messiah’s mind. Usually, He simply ignores it. Acknowledging that a Constitutional amendment would be needed for Him to get what He wants is an improvement for Him.

Since when has this guy ever done anything “presidential?” He’s too cool for that.

I thought that was settled law already. That’s what liberals always say.

So, you reckon no one is listening to Obama at all anymore, including Rat politicians, so he’s reduced to speechifying in venues such as high schools, college auditoriums, Glamour Magazine, Reddit, and such?
