Obama Speaks Of “Imperfect” Constitution

Saw this at Pat Dollard’s:

This is from his speech in Philadelphia this morning. Where better to announce the founding of a new nation shaped in his image? And where else, more mocking, more audacious? And where else, better to fool people, as a patriot?

Did you catch it?

“It was these ideals that led us to declare independence, and craft our constitution, producing documents that were imperfect but had within them, like our nation itself, the capacity to be made more perfect.

We are here today not simply to pay tribute to our first patriots but to take up the work that they began.

And yet while our problems may be new, what is required to overcome them is not. What is required is the same perseverance and idealism that our founders displayed. What is required is a new declaration of independence not just in our nation, but in our own lives..independence from ideology

A new Declaration of Independence?! No thanks…let’s keep the old one, please. Independence from ideology? What. the. hell? Just in time for the Obamanation?

Dollard says:

Later in another city, he made reference to the need for our Constitution to be rewritten as “more perfect”.

Who gets to define that? And why is that definition  better than the definition left us by the Founding Fathers?

If  I didn’t know any better, I would just chalk this up to a bunch of high minded, idealistic gobbledygook. But, I do know better. Obama has a history of trashing the Constitution. He’s serious when suggests that the Constitution needs to be rewritten. He wants to “break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution”, as he clearly stated in this interview from  2001.

Remember the “October Surprise” the MSM ignored ?

Bill Whittle weighed in at the time at NRO:

This redistribution of wealth, he states, “essentially is administrative and takes a lot of time.It is an administrative task. Not suitable for the courts. More suitable for the chief executive.

Now that’s just garden-variety socialism, which apparently is not a big deal to may voters. So I would appeal to any American who claims to love the Constitution and to revere the Founding Fathers… I will not only appeal to you, I will beg you, as one American citizen to another, to consider this next statement with as much care as you can possibly bring to bear: “And uh, to that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution — at least as it’s been interpreted, and [the] Warren Court interpreted it in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties: [it] says what the states can’t do to you, says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf.

The United States of America — five percent of the world’s population — leads the world economically, militarily, scientifically, and culturally — and by a spectacular margin. Any one of these achievements, taken alone, would be cause for enormous pride. To dominate as we do in all four arenas has no historical precedent. That we have achieved so much in so many areas is due — due entirely — to the structure of our society as outlined in the Constitution of the United States.

The entire purpose of the Constitution was to limit government. That limitation of powers is what has unlocked in America the vast human potential available in any population.

Barack Obama sees that limiting of government not as a lynchpin but rather as a fatal flaw.

Whittle lamented:

That a man so clear in his understanding of the Constitution, and so opposed to the basic tenets it provides against tyranny and the abuse of power, can run for president of the United States is shameful enough.

Well it’s neither here nor there, now, I guess. Elections have consequences.

Oh yeah… in other news:

As Inauguration Day approaches and Barack Obama prepares to assume his first term as president, some in Congress are hoping to make it possible for the Democrat to not only seek a second term in office, but a third and fourth as well.

The U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary is considering a bill that would repeal the Constitution’s 22nd Amendment prohibiting a president from being elected to more than two terms in office.

Rep. Jose Serrano, D-N.Y., earlier this month introduced the bill, H. J. Res. 5, which, according to the bill’s language, proposes “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.”

STILL MORE bad news for the Constitution:

WND reported back in December:

A public policy organization has issued an urgent alert stating affirmative votes are needed from only two more states before a Constitutional Convention could be assembled in which “today’s corrupt politicians and judges” could formally change the U.S. Constitution’s “‘problematic’ provisions to reflect the philosophical and social mores of our contemporary society.”

“Don’t for one second doubt that delegates to a Con Con wouldn’t revise the First Amendment into a government-controlled privilege, replace the 2nd Amendment with a ‘collective’ right to self-defense, and abolish the 4th, 5th, and 10th Amendments, and the rest of the Bill of Rights,” said the warning from the American Policy Center.

“Additions could include the non-existent separation of church and state, the ‘right’ to abortion and euthanasia, and much, much more,” the group said.

The warning comes at a time when Barack Obama, who is to be voted the next president by the Electoral College Monday, has expressed his belief the U.S. Constitution needs to be interpreted through the lens

of current events.

Get ready for it.

  1. He’s a chump. A chump with to much pride & ego. His ego will get him in trouble just like it did clinton. His pride & ego will walk before him when he slaps his face into the gravel. We don’t need the MSM to tell us what we “just didn’t see” it will be evident to all. He will fall because he’s full of too much unhealthy ego and pride.

  2. There is a guy in my neighborhood, almost 3 years ago, who was arrested for killing 3 young teenage boys, after imprisoning them and raping them. (no shit, he lived like 3 blocks from me)

    Had I known he did that prior to his arrest? I would have grabbed my grounding rod (my weapon of choice) and beat him to death.

    Obama lives next to 2 terrorists, 2 seditionists, attends the church of a third, and he’s “better” is “better?”

    me no thinky.

  7. Barack has adopted FDR’s “Four Freedoms” philosophy, and will shall all suffer as a result. This is excerpted from a post I wrote 2 years ago:

    Enter FDR. In 1941 he gave his famous “Four Freedoms” speech, in which he outlined his conception of human rights.

    In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms.

    The first is freedom of speech and expression–everywhere in the world.

    The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way–everywhere in the world.

    The third is freedom from want–which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants-everywhere in the world.

    The fourth is freedom from fear–which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor–anywhere in the world.

    Later in the speech he equates “freedoms” and “rights,” and so is defining, to conservative eyes at least, a novel conception of human rights. Note the 3rd freedom, which seeks to eliminate “want” from the human condition. The original definition was “freedom to want,” but in Roosevelt’s construction, an onus is placed on society to eliminate poverty, hunger, disease, and any other sad state that afflicts humanity.

  8. The question is not IF there will be an interdiction of Obama’s Presidency by the Supreme Court, the questions are WHEN and HOW that interdiction will transpire — that is, if the USA is to continue as the Constitutional Republic that now exists.

  10. The government has no obligation to do anything at all for you. All we are entitled to is protection from the government; the rest is up to us.

    Unfortunately, dependent people, which includes almost all blacks, many women, most mestizos, etc. do not understand this and they want to be cared for, provided for, looked after by a benevolent, protective government. That is socialism at its best, but it is rarely ever (read never) that good.

    As Americans we are to be free, not protected or provided for. We are to make our own way in the world by our own effort. The sooner we get back to that, the better off we will be.

  11. Nice Deb, After reading your blog I’m beginning to feel like those ads that say, I can’t date Liberal guys anymore! I have a Liberal Girlfriend and I’m beginning to wonder, what am I doing? Actually, I thought that from the start but it used to be funny. Now, not so much. Perhaps you know some, and that’s not a cheap pass. Maybe I’ll meet a nice Conservative Catholic girl online.

  13. geoff, in particular, those “freedoms” exist only so long as no-one else decides to take advantage of the weakness. There will always be wolves. There will always be underground labs where stuff is created by those who would enslave. Once the “target” is sufficiently weak to overcome, the attack WILL come.

If you were to check, back in 2005 a republackin proposed the same bill and back in the 80’s did the same for you’re messiah Ronnie. It makes me wonder if any of you can think for you’re self’s, or is it you get a headache when you think so you let wingnut bloggers and Limbaugh TELL you what to think, or is it you have trouble comprehending? This time close you’re eyes and listen to the 2001 recording with out the input the wingnut blogger typed and see if you can understand and comprehend what Obama said. Free thought try it some time.

  16. Is this the same constitution that he took an oath to “preserve and protect” when he was sworn into office?

    It wasn’t that long ago that the people would have impeached a president for this. Apparently, in the modern era, we only impeach for infidelity.
