Now Obama Blames Our Founding Fathers!

President Obama recently accused the nation’s Founding Fathers of establishing a flawed system of government. He used it as an excuse to circumvent Congress and ignore the constitutional system of checks and balances to advance his leftist agenda.

Incredibly this president has derided the framers of our nation’s government for putting his administration’s agenda at a “disadvantage” because of “structural reasons.” He again used the stalemate in Congress as a rationalization for his use of Executive Orders and repeated violations of the separation of powers.

As reported by the Washington Times, our Campaigner-in-Chief was addressing a group of wealthy Democrat donors when he told them that the logjam in Congress is because of an unfair apportionment of power in our government.

“‘Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that California has the same number of Senate seats as Wyoming. That puts us [Democrats] 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.

The president also blamed ‘demographics’ for the inability of the Democratic Party to gain more power in Congress, saying Democrats ‘tend to congregate a little more densely’ in cities such as New York and Chicago. He said it gives Republicans disproportional clout in Congress.

‘So there are some structural reasons why, despite the fact that Republican ideas are largely rejected by the public, it’s still hard for us to break through,’ Mr. Obama said.”

Columnist Michelle Malkin aptly assessed the President’s comments this way…impeachobama-cutout-fb

“In other words, ‘it’s a real problem for us that the Founders gave a bunch of backwards country hicks in flyover states certain protections from out-of-control enlightened coastal and big city liberal elites.’”

President Obama, you’re the problem – not the Constitution

President Obama’s willful dismissal of our nation’s laws as passed by Congress and his practice of “deeming” which laws he chooses to change, ignore, or enforce are violations of his obligation under the Constitution to faithfully execute the laws of the land.

I and Liberty Counsel Action are calling on the House of Representatives, the people’s house, to draft Articles of Impeachment against President Barack H. Obama for high crimes and misdemeanors… including failure to faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States and wanton failure to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States, as he swore to do.

A growing number of outraged citizens are demanding that our elected representatives force this lawless administration to stop usurping the power of the American people and decimating our founding documents.

President Obama’s tenure has been marred by one scandal after another, not the least of which is the latest V.A. debacle.

Now, the President is being called out for malpractice for the V.A. tragedy and ObamaCare’s devastation. He has already been cited for dereliction of duty, accused of treason, determined to be a tyrant, and been exposed running a truly lawless administration.

Make no mistake: Our Constitution and precious liberties are under full-scale assault by Barack Obama and his leftist administration.

Patriotic Americans must refuse to stand silently by while leftists take our nation apart, plank by plank We MUST perform our duty as Americans to free ourselves of this tyranny.

(Please use LCA’s powerful Fax Barrage to send an impactful message to twenty-one elected officials. Together, lets embolden them to take this lawful action.)

    To maintain that the Constitution of the United States was perfect when it was written in 1787 is ridiculous. So many aspects of the original document now are recognized as wrong. Yes, there were compromises made – and the determination of how seats in the Senate would be apportioned was just one such compromise. Does that mean that it was a perfect solution? No, it was simply what was required to get a new Constitution approved of any kind. Another compromise was permitting slavery to continue, and counting slaves as 3/5 of a person in the census. Was that a perfect solution? Far from it, and we fought a great civil war as a result. But it was necessary to get a new Constitution approved of any kind.

    The Constitution, as originally written, was a far from perfect document. It did some things admirably well, but in other ways it was simply a product of its times and of the compromises that were needed to get anything done.

      Article V of the Constitution gives the people, through their representatives, the right to “amend” or change the Constitution. We have already done this 27 times. If you don’t like something in the Constitution, have your representatives amend it.

      • The Skeptical Chymist

        Indeed, the right to amend the Constitution was one of many things that the framers got correct. This has allowed the original framework to be improved many times. There are many changes I would like to see approved by amendment, but few of them would be supported by my representatives.

        Here are two ideas I would like to see implemented as amendments:
        1. A well-crafted amendment to overturn Citizens United and McCutcheon decisions so that corporations and wealthy individuals will not have out-size influence on our political system.
        2. Direct election of the president by popular vote, to overcome the out-size influence of small states in the electoral process.
