Skip to comments.Obama blames Founding Fathers

Can you imagine an Obama constitution? It would include the bill of government requirements. Check it out:
President Obama is taking a swipe at the Founding Fathers, blaming his inability to move his agenda on the disadvantage of having each state represented equally in the Senate.
At a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night, Mr. Obama told a small group of wealthy supporters that there are several hurdles to keeping Democrats in control of the Senate and recapturing the House. One of those problems, he said, is the apportionment of two Senate seats to each state regardless of population.
Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that California has the same number of Senate seats as Wyoming. That puts us at a disadvantage, Mr. Obama said.
The Founding Fathers decided in the Great Compromise in 1787 to apportion House seats based on population and give each state two seats in the Senate regardless of population. The solution was a compromise between large states and small states in a dispute that nearly dissolved the Constitutional Convention.

Don’t forget the gracious elephant that used to be in the living room, namely faith in God which was usually also a faith in the Christian God but at least which kept a high view of God. Like water to the fish, it got too little attention until it was missed.
To continue the metaphor it’s been replaced by a slovenly self-consumed donkey.
With Obama, its always someone else’s fault. Never his.
Well in a way the devil IS making him do it. But he has a choice whether or not to yield himself to the devil, or to the ultimately more powerful (and better) God.
Barry would be happier as one of the Castro brothers.
What do they think of black people down in Cuba?
Barry was whining about The Constitution before he was even running for his first term. Nothing new here. He will continue to ignore the law.
The irony for the Constitution-hating Obama is that the House is set up by population and they are now controlled by the GOP.
This is such horse blank. Obama is frustrated that the structure of the Senate won’t allow him to ram his liberal agenda through fast enough, or completely enough???
Poor baby Barack. Did you ever stop to think that, if You and your party spoke to issues supported by big numbers of people, that your agenda would get through Congress easily? That if you weren’t trying to force a liberal agenda, that you might have different results???
That is why we have the separation of powers, non proportional representation in the Senate and co-equal branches of government. These brilliant men did this to foil the plans of tyrants. Obama wants to make the Constitution irrelevant, and with the help of an activist judiciary a great deal of the constitution has become irrelevant.
How wise our Founding Fathers were! How self-absorbed our pResident is! Can he do an EO changing the rules for the numbers of Senators? I’m sure if he could, he would.
He doesn’t care that the majority of citizens don’t want what he is ramming through. He is in control and will do as much destruction as he can. Who is going to stop him??
Yet the half white, Kenyan Muslim illegal doesn't say a word about the two Senators that, say, Rhode Island has, or Hawaii, or the only new state for which he is in favor, Puerto Rico would have. Nope, no hypocrisy here. Just more BS spew that his lapdog media laps up. I swear, they should be wearing leather head pieces that have to those little red ball mouth gags in them and those leather pants that have a hole in the rear. Sheesh.
“...that puts US at a disadvantage...”
The ‘US’ equals democrat politicians. NOT the CITIZENS of this United States.
Sick and twisted are all these professional leeches!
OUT WITH THEM!!!
What an arrogant ASS! How did the world survive? How did America prosper? Prior to the coming of THE ONE!
> What do they think of black people down in Cuba?
Oh, yeah. Forgot that little detail.
But, ideologically speaking ...
“... The Founding Fathers decided in the Great Compromise in 1787 ...”
Without that agreement, there would have been no Constitution.
Thoroughly predictable. I have yet to be surprised by the guy. He’s a clockwork leftist.
He's complaining that the structure of the Senate -- which is controlled by DEMOCRATS -- is an impediment to his agenda.
And yet the House of Representatives, which is represented proportionately by population (as he seems to prefer) -- is controlled by REPUBLICANS.
I'm wondering if this moron was reading a speech from ten years ago that had been loaded into his teleprompter by mistake. LOL.
