Obama: It's the fault of the Founding Fathers

Quote:President Obama is taking a swipe at the Founding Fathers, blaming his inability to move his agenda on the “disadvantage” of having each state represented equally in the Senate.
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.
“Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that California has the same number of Senate seats as Wyoming. That puts us at a disadvantage,” Mr. Obama said.
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.


There is just so much fail in this, I don't even know where to start.

Backwards. Democrats do not congregate in large cities. Large cities manufacture Democrats using overpopulation, encouraging racial and income divides, and using nanny government to addict the people.

But overall, his speech is no different than the one where Romney told supporters that 47% of the people are beyond reach. The difference is that the media covered that as a "bad" thing while they will either not cover this or worse, write articles that agree with it.

The tone of his attitude is almost like Republicans are a cancer to be rooted out rather than equal citizens of this country.
