Obama blames Founding Fathers’ ‘structural’ design of Congress for gridlock – Washington Times

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.

This is the stuff that terrifies me.  About every six months, we can count on our fascist President to nudge his soft-headed constituents into believing that the fundamental nature of our government needs to be changed so that he can get more done.  The man was supposedly a lecturer on constitutional law (NOT a fucking professor).  He knows that the Senate was always intended to act as a legislative brake.  That’s why the neutering of the filibuster by the Democrats last year was so egregious.
