As much as Comrade 36 would like to believe that Comrade WinnySmith purged all records of Dear Leader Comrade Zero's negative personal opinions about our founding documents, and hence by extension our Founding Fathers; that is in fact, not the case. Many of us know exactly what chaps Zero's ass, and exactly what flavor of Koolaid he is asking those little darlings to swill. MSLSD may be reporting that all things doubleplusungood are already down the memory hole, but that simply is not the case.

First: “We still suffer from not having a Constitution that guarantees its citizens economic rights.” By positive economic rights, Obama means government protection against individual economic failures, such as low incomes, unemployment, poverty, lack of health care, and the like. Obama characterizes the Constitution as “a charter of negative liberties,” which “says what the states can’t do to you (and) what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf.” (Ask not what you can do for your country but what your country can do for you, to paraphrase John F. Kennedy).

The founders of this nation crafted that "charter of negative liberties" specifically to thwart the kind of tyrant Dear Leader Comrade Zero does in fact seek to be. Were that not so, Dear Leader Comrade Zero would not see said liberties (negative or otherwise) as hindering his desire to "fundamentally transform America". He would instead see those "negative liberties" as a redoubt from which to defend the Peoples' liberty, against the kind of absolute power which corrupts absolutely.

Nice try tovarisch, but better luck next time. Da?

You should see if Tinkle-Legs Matthews and Rachel Madcow might be willing to tutor you. I think part of their secret is to drink the bong water every day. Or so it would seem.

You're attempting to change the subject and reframe the discussion. I didn't say Obama has been an excellent leader. Only that he is our leader and we should want him to do a good job. We don't have to agree with all of his ideas or policies and we're allowed to have an opinion... but we should want our leader to be a positive force.

But nevertheless it doesn't change the fact that your OP is dishonest. And all of you wolves are circling with insults and attacks because your argument in this particular case is just playground he said she said BS. You just want an excuse to ***** and moan.

Racist? LMAO, so because I'm not seeing this made up comment that Obama didn't actually make... it's because I'm afraid to disagree with him because he's black? To make a statement like that does make you sound like that's a huge reason you disagree with him. I don't think that's true... but c'mon... race? Grow the **** up. I think I can base my opinions on a politician on more than just the color of his skin. You guys are such a gang of stereotypical righty tighties. If I don't see every single word Obama says as some kind of evil socialist agenda then I must be in league with him and attempting to destroy this country. You guys are silly. He will come and go like all presidents. He'll get some credit for any positives that came out of his time in office and plenty of blame for things that went bad. All this will pass. Unclench your hole.

Interesting mouthful of nonsense. So where does any of this generate this quote from the OP where Obama was instructing people to reject the voice of our founders?

From your quote I see a man that is idealistic about what government should do for its people. I disagree with much of it, but I see nothing wrong with at least having the idea. We as a nation can discuss ideas and then when the time comes our representatives can vote on what, if any, changes will be made. Having ideas that people disagree with isn't a crime.

I too disagree with the idea that all people should be "Protected" from being poor. And I think (which many of you would probably agree with me) that if you give people free money for doing nothing... you can't really expect them to do anything else. I see it first hand every year when I do people's taxes. I see people flooding in that made $10K for the year and have 3 kids and they get an $8K refund when they didn't even pay any withholding tax in the first place. And then they get pissed when it takes 2 weeks to process. And in the past when I could get it for them in 2 days or less... they were willing to pay me whatever to make that happen... wasn't their money. I'm not blind to the entitlement culture. And I disagree that they should be supported as they are. However... I also know first hand that there are some people that without government support... would certainly die, through no fault of their own. And we as American's should set aside resources for such people. We have a military that can level this world three times over. They have almost every form of destruction at their command except a Death Star and they may be working on that in secret. Yet some people get upset when they learn some of their tax dollars are helping a wheelchair bound single mother, who cannot work, feed her 10 year old.

However I do agree with the more left side of the table on things like Stem Cell Research and Gay Marriage. I fall somewhere in the middle I think you'll find. And it seems that's where all the sane people are.

OK, I think the "journalist" who wrote that piece is reading much too far into it. He (and many folks here) extrapolates far beyond what is logical or reasonable, in my opinion.

What I get from the snippet of speech quoted, especially "...Because what they suggest is that our brave and creative and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted...", is an encouragement to be optimistic about the future and to participate actively in the formation of that future and our government.

If you choose to see something sinister in that little bit of speech, more power to you, but I disagree.

This card is played just as much as the left plays the race card. It's pathetic.

The simple fact is that what Dear Leader Comrade Zero preaches--to any Hope-A-Doped moron who will listen--is directly antithetical to what the Founders had to say on the subject of that government which is best for people who seek the blessings of liberty. Which is completely congruent with the title of this thread--a title that you seem compelled to repeatedly refer to as a "quote" attributed to Dear Leader Comrade Zero.

With regard to "Gay Marriage" I'd say that Tinkle-Legs Matthews and Rachel Madcow would know more about it than I do; I find the issue to be a non-issue.

As to your "sane" stance on stem cells... LOL

The overwhelming majority of any meaningful research in that regard has been shown to be just as--if not more--effective using stem cells harvested from the patient themselves. Much to the chagrin of the soulless ghouls who would rather dabble in cloning and/or line the pockets of abortionists who sell the "by-product" of their ghastly endeavors in the human tissue market.


Now run along and play.

Ok, everybody settle down. This article was clearly taken out of context. Obama meant "Kenyan Founding Fathers."
