Report: Obama Told Dem Donors He Might Be In A “Very Strong Position” To Amend The Constitution…
Obama is announcing that he’s got the power to change the Constitution… only took him 6 years worth of scandals to get there.
Via The Hill:
President Obama told Democratic donors he might be “in a very strong position” to demand a Constitutional amendment on campaign finance reform during his second term, according to a new book.
The president made the comments at a closed-door, high-dollar 2012 fundraiser in Seattle, where supporters included the likes of billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
“Now, I taught constitutional law. I don’t tinker with the Constitution lightly. But I think this is important enough that citizens have to get mobilized around this issue, and this will probably be a multiyear effort,” Obama said, according to an excerpt from Big Money by journalist Ken Vogel, obtained by Mother Jones.
“After my reelection, my sense is that I may be in a very strong position to do it,” Obama continued.
Later that year, the president publicly endorsed a constitutional amendment that would overturn the controversial Citizens United decision that allowed unlimited political spending by outside groups.
“Over the longer term, I think we need to seriously consider mobilizing a constitutional amendment process to overturn Citizens United (assuming the Supreme Court doesn’t revisit it),” Obama wrote during a question-and-answer session on Reddit.
This kind of talk makes me want to hide the children and lock up the house… Obama’s disregard for American political system is level-red disturbing.
