Yes, you read the Head Lines Correctly, Obama has some one else to Blame for his, Weakness, or should I say the Weakness of the Democrat Party.
Obamas up set that our Founding Fathers Had Enough Intelligence to give each State Two Senate Seats No matter The Size of that State and Obama is Upset!
Why,,, Might You Ask?
Because, Democrats are mostly in large populated cities, NY, S F, L A and Chicago.
With that being the way things are, Obamas Democrats are having a hard time, ( Thank G-D ) Controlling thee House.
Poor, Babies!!!!!



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.



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.

Obamas a Whinner

No, I think Democrats are Tried of All Your Scandals and Your Do Nothing Administration and then Obamacare!

Gotta blame someone.

Who else is better than to blame those who have been long gone and cannot "fight" back.

Typical politics, it is always the other guy's fault.

If 0bama had *HIS* golden ratio, we would have no Congress at all !!

Next he'll be blaming the Magna Carta and the British for losing the Revolutionary War !!

0bama is very dangerous right now with all the scandals and exposures.

Proceed with extreme caution this November.

They might be photographing your vote !!



Mr 0bama's new Bill of Rights...

It should be Very Plain For All Too See, Obama does not want the checks and balances of the Three Branches of Government. It has to be Very Apparent To You All By Now, Obama Does Not Believe in The Constitution.

Just look at how he's talked of By Passing Congress and Look at the Actions of the D O J and the I R S.
Obama wants to Rule The Nation His Way and Our Constitution and Bill of Rights are in His Way!
It's a Very Sad Day For America When Our Sitting President Can Blame Our Founding Fathers For Being In His Way!

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.
. . .
“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.

I would say he is covering his ass so to speak.

He may be "foreseeing" the inevitable.

He still refuses to come to terms with the fact that the majority in the House of Representatives actually represents the majority of the U.S. population.

He *HATES* that with the passion of a Gila Monster that won't let go until sundown !!

Extremely dangerous right now.

He is not as dumb as we think though.

All he needs is one nation wide disaster to bring the country together, oh wait, can that be a disaster other than the ACA?

I can agree with all of your "OBSERVATIONS" ... with EXCEPTION to "Extremely dangerous right now.".

WHY ???

OPINION: The Democrat-Based-Groups are having BUCKETS-n-BUCKETS-of-ICE-WATER thrown on them ... ( i.e. many will be SERIOUSLY-Questioning NEW Actions AND Inactions ).

AS EVIDENCED BY:

Every American has the RIGHT to know when their government believes it is allowed to KILL them!

NOTE: Senator Ron Wyden is an Oregon ... "DEMOCRAT" !!!

So he's mad that he doesn't have complete control over America? That sounds like him.

Thank God Obama can't act unilaterally, without checks and balances, like he wants to. I'd hate to live in under an American dictatorship. I guess Obama thinks that he's right on everything he believes in and everyone else should have to do what he says. I still can't decide if this guy is corrupt, or if he is just stupid. Im gonna go with both.

It should be plain to see. But its not. Wait for it, you'll see what I mean in some of the following replies. Some people prefer to be ignorant.

(Reuters) - President Barack Obama has a modest, tongue-in-cheek suggestion for people in New York City who support his agenda: move to North Dakota. The idea drew laughs in what was otherwise a somber speech at a $32,400-per-ticket fundraiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in the posh Upper East Side apartment of investment banker Blair Effron, co-founder of Centerview Partners. In the second of two fundraisers on Wednesday, Obama bemoaned how Democrats face some "structural disadvantages" in elections - winning with large margins in places like Brooklyn but losing to Republicans in red states.
lol so he wants new yorkers to move in north dakota eh? gee isnt that what rural states have been complaining about for years.........

blog.keloland.com... SD seems to not want them for being judgemental of how they run their own state


With the exception of Indian Country Today in its prime and sometimes from South Dakota Public Broadcasting and the Rapid City Journal, you’d really never know that a chunk of our fellow citizens live on Indian reservations and that often times, that existence is bleak and mean. Image representing New York Times as depicted ... Image via CrunchBase As my KELOLAND blogging colleague Dr. David Newquist aptly points out, it takes outside media like the New York Times to do the work that South Dakota journalists should be doing when it comes to reporting on the state’s reservations. The NYT features a devastating story on Indian gangs. Yes, terrible, criminal big-city like gangs right here in KELOLAND. But since they are in Pine Ridge and Cheyenne River and other remote places, most of us South Dakotans don’t care–and our MSM doesn’t care either. It’s takes the fancy-pants Easterners to shine a light on our problems.
any one else rememeber when bloomberg wanted to ban native americans from selling discount tobacco in NY

Yeah the Bill of Rights and the Constitution are really inconvenient for liberals. I mean who needs freedom of religion, freedom of the press, freedom of speech, the right to bear arms or any other freedom when they know so well what's good for us? Liberals make the best dictators.

It paints a bad picture of conservatives as "racist". Saying things like that makes people think things like, "Conservatives don't like Obama because he's black", and then they'll use comments like yours as proof. When the truth is, its not about race. Its about his anti-american mindset and hatred of the american way of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Being racist, or using racial slurs, makes conservatives look bad.
