‘Structural’ design of the American government displeases Barry the Tyrant
It appears the American form of government – enshrined in the Constitution by our Founding Fathers – has become the greatest impediment to Barack Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of the country.
Now, he’s talking about it. The Washington Times reports on Obama’s remarks at a fundraiser:
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.
He also said Democrats suffer from the “congenital disease” of not voting in midterm elections.
