Monday, October 27, 2008 8:20 PM

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama described the U.S. Constitution as having deep flaws during a September 2001 Chicago public radio program, adding that the countrys Founding Fathers had an enormous blind spot when they wrote it.
Obama also remarked that the Constitution reflected the fundamental flaw of this country that continues to this day.
Obamas statements came during a panel discussion that aired on Chicagos WBEZ-FM on Sept. 6, 2001, titled Slavery and the Constitution.

Constitution: Obama is Deeply Flawed
There, fixed it.
Okay, most of us have a “hubris detector” and alarm system in our brains that stops us from going too far when we begin to think we are wiser than the Founding Fathers. Apparently BO doesn’t have one.
In a sane world, his statements would immediately disqualify him for POTUS.
You got that right. He’s dangerously flawed and if elected, I’m not so sure America could recover from an Obama Presidency.
He is just echoing the sentiments and desires of his party’s founder Thomas Jefferson.
Demagogues wanting to steal freedom and liberty always see flaws that only they know how to fix. It’s one of the things Hitler used after being elected to seize total control over Germany — And look how well that turned out.
My analysis of this is that 0, as a lefty, doesn’t understand that prosperity comes from individuals acting in their own best interest leading to increased levels of lifestyle for all.
The Constitution was based on this understanding, that gov’t was only to protect property and opportunity, and otherwise STAY OUT OF OUR WAY.
Leftists/Marxists just can’t fathom that concept. All prosperity comes from top-down policies, to them. That the Constitition contains no language to this effect baffles them.
The amendment process, not the judiciary, is how the Constitution is to be corrected.
B.O. will destroy our Constitution
Which would Obama burn first, the flag or the Constitution?
I guess he likes the free speech part of it OK...
I agree it is flawed. It didn’t have enough protections against government overreaching its powers and violating our rights.
But there are only two correct approaches to solving it. One, stick to the text, as in “public use” doesn’t mean “fattening developers’ wallets” and “shall not be infringed” means, well, it should be obvious. The other is an amendment if you actually want to change the text as Obama does.
Free speech is only for his supporters, and those voicing ideas like his own.
Otherwise, they get “Fairness Doctrined” out of business.
Not if the words of the Constitution are just playthings.
The Constitution says what human judges say it says.
the founding fathers had a blind spot when they wrote the constitution?????
What the heck is wrong with politically correct people? The world was very different then. When Jefferson wrote that “all men are created equal”, he likely meant men and not women. Does that mean the Declaration of Independence is a worthless document? The constitution allowed for slavery. It was written in an 18th century world. Does the fact that we abolished slavery eventually not matter to these people?
so, since the constitution does not read like the Communist Manifesto, is it a worthless document because it doesn’t create a perfect world such as Barack would like to see??????
This happened a lot in the Co-presidency, too- Clintonoids would distribute “old” press releases at pressers to suppress “new” articles.
If this is opposition research results, someone paid way too much for consultants and researchers to have this stuff floating to the top now.
FIRST- he is going to have an ‘ephiphany’ and ‘convert to the
religion of his forefathers.’. Wait for it.
After that, the Constitution and the Flag are BIG TARGETS.
Islam and democracy do not mix.
I’d love to know what people here think will happen if
The Obamanation goes from Christianity( yeah, right!) to
Islam after he’s in office. ((God forbid!))
What happens if the POTUS converts to a ‘religion’ that is
opposed to all this country stands for??
That right there should be grounds for Obama to be disqualified. If elected, he is required to swear an oath to protect and defend that “flawed” Constitution.
Dear Mr. Obama - it isn’t the US Constitution that is flawed, it is your interpretation and the interpretation of liberals, Marxists, and Communists like yourself that is flawed.
Obama doesn’t deserve to be POTUS. In fact, he doesn’t deserve anything but being deported to Kenya where his family apparently agrees with his Marxist agenda. Maybe ship off everyone who votes for him as well... as they obviously like the lifestyle of the poor and robbed.
