Althouse: Obama: "I am constrained... by a system that our Founders put in place."

Modern liberalism in a nutshell....
That's the constitutional argument he has in mind. It's an idea of constitutional government as a political system, within which rights are only another manifestation of what the people want. And, in the ultimate scary twist on the idea of rights: Government is not to be regarded as in need of limits, because the government is us. Anything we — the government — want to do is never tyranny, but freedom.
What we have here is a profoundly stupid man that has profoundly idiotic ideas. The concept of government as envisioned by the Obamessiah is exactly what the founding fathers wanted and designed the nation to avoid and this is majority rule and centralized decision making. At that time, although communism was not created yet but central planning was well known, these great thinkers and philosophers strived to avoid this quagmire but now Americans seek exactly that. It will only mean that the nation as originally founded, designed and run is dead and we are becoming nothing but another feckless Euro-state. So sad.
