It is no secret that Obama regards the Constitution as “deeply flawed” because it was designed to protect the country from statists like himself and their authoritarian designs. Here he bellyaches yet again that the structure of our government is getting in the way:
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.
This is working as intended, by preventing highly populated states like California and New York from lording it over everyone else.
The system ingeniously devised by the Founding Fathers got us this far; maybe it can even get us through Obama’s presidency.
