It should come as no surprise that President Obama doesn’t like the way the Founders laid out the Republic. You need only look at his actions and utter disdain for enforcing the law to see that.
And now he laments the fact that each state can only elect 2 senators.
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.
I guess he’s thinking that they’d have more Democrats in the senate if that election were based on population. But wait, isn’t that how it’s done in the House of Representatives? It sure is. And who controls the House right now? Not Democrats!
“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.
Structural reasons, eh? Yep, sounds like he’s like to dismantle and rewrite the Constitution to me! No thank you Mr. President, this representative government is representing the constituency just fine. Do your job and uphold the Constitution.
