Skip to comments.Obama blames Founding Fathers
Posted on 05/25/2014 7:06:41 AM PDT by cotton1706
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To continue the metaphor it’s been replaced by a slovenly self-consumed donkey.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.
I’m not surprised to hear this from an illegal alien and a muslim to boot. He’s unaware of our American history and grossly incompetent on top of that.
He and his playmates will never understand what our country stands for, so it’s too bad they just don’t get the hell out of our country and go to a paradise like Kenya.
The leftist Democrat way of thinking is to deceive the ignorant, foolish ones into voting themselves into slavery. Upon finding that the original design of government per our founding fathers was to try and prevent some of that to a degree, they now want to change the rules.
I heard part of his speech was talking about how the American people have rejected the Republicans.
Yet as you point out, the GOP controls the House.
And the GOP controls a majority of state legislatures, and a majority of state governorships too.
He’s just demagoging again.
, because then he might understand why the government is divided up the way it is instead of placing all the power into the hands of a wanna-be tyrant like him.
Granted, the 17th amendment changed the Senate in a fundamental way, but that is another story.
He’s used kneepads with them.
Well, God didn’t just vanish.
We told Him to go away.
The “Democrat” way, ginning up crowds then making like that’s an actual fair plebiscite or something.
Maybe Republicans should learn how to gin up crowds too, though not at the gutter level.
Which is why the Kenyan nationalist socialist criminal hostage taking of the government must end by any means necessary. They have stole everything: freedom, hope, all civil rights. There is no more constitution and no more republic. Nazi Germany had more liberty and killed fewer souls.
And yet... even with that loss of Senate buffering (which old way had its own pitfalls and scandal) a principle remains. A state had a peculiar dignity of its own. It wasn’t just a quaintness to be observed on travel vacations... oh look! Kentucky! Oklahoma! Oregon! (or whatever).
This is being collectivized into a colorless mush.
No wonder country (and I believe, redneck) is a widely treasured thing. It fights the collectivization and insists on being incorrigibly local.
And this probably isn’t his idea. He’s not smart enough to think of it. More likely some Alinsky-ite staffer.
“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 werent trying to force a liberal agenda, that you might have different results???”
Once he had the senate and the house. He got what he
wanted. Now he’s fixing to loose all that he had left.
If he looses Obamacare while he’s still in office he gets
knocked back down to poverty pimp with Sharpton and Jackson
instead of single-payer pimp when he leaves office.
And lord help him if the senate republicans get enough of
a majority that he could get impeached. Not that they would
have the balls to do it but just the threat alone and all
his cronies getting called in to testify would make his
life a little less worth living, I hope.
It would probably resemble the 2,000-page European Union monstrosity.
I agree. And the closer one gets to a large population center, the less so.
Maybe if the Holocaust carnage were compared to the abortion toll, it would be an uneasy lesson.
Barack Obama and the Democrats have played it masterfully, if to an evil master.
Pass an absolutely Draconian law that if really followed would bring down the wrath of America at large, and then “graciously” play Calvinball with it.
I pray that the Lord will let America get sick and tired of this game of amateur emperor.
Cities despise rednecks... yet they bring in rednecks to build their infrastructure that they then laze around in.
The idiot cannot put two cogent thoughts together. His own party controls the Senate, with Harry ruling with an iron fist. Surely, Obama's NSA/FBI/CIA have enough goods on Dirty Harry to get whatever legislation they want, brought to the floor for a vote.
When Obama says, “You didn't build it” HE is full of CRAP!
He is implying that BigGov did roads, airports and infrastructure that made it possible for all us private dweebs to create our restaurants and computer companies.
He omits this fact...I have never seen a BigGov bureaucrat pick up a shovel and do anything REAL.
The roads, the bridges, the infrastructure were constructed by strong hard working American men, mostly working for private companies.
BigGov was just the middle man, confiscating a portion of wealth created by private citizens, then siphoning off a sizable share for themselves before commissioning the Strong Hard Working American Men to actually do the building.
So Obama you SUCK! You are Wrong! We did Build it!
You're the ONE who never built anything meaningful in your life.
You are not a builder...You OBAMA are a DESTROYER!
Obama’s constitution would all be about the rights of the king and the obligations of his subjects.
This one dolt thinks he could compete with the founding fathers assembling a government. Does a retarded child know he is retarded?
Well, I think he's complaining about the Senate after the November election. He knows full well that Democrats are very likely to lose control of the Senate, and he's setting up his story now.
56.8 million dead babies courtesy of the dictator and his ilk.
Holocaust estimates run 6 to 20 million deaths. America has its own government induced version.
What kind of country kills it’s babies? 17 million of them minority blacks, 6.7 million by Planned Parenthood (Planned Baby Murder).
these ‘roadblocks’ brilliantly help derail swift tyrannical abilities.
given obama is a foreign commie tyrant, i can see why he doesn’t see this, but only sees something that frustrates him.
