    My view on this video is that it is a 30 second cherry picked sample that doesn't offer a whole lot of context. He does raise a good point, that any cultural/social flaws in the way the founding fathers were raised would naturally influence the constitution. After all, the constitution condoned slavery and relegated slaves to 3/5 of a person. It was flawed enough that before it was even ratified, it was amended 10 times. It was flawed enough that it's been amended nearly 20 times more since.

    CAN A LEPEROD CHANGE IT'S SPOTS?

    Do you think his views have changed?


    Heres a hint he's said before when he was a state senator.
    Negative liberty's I think it was.

    Fortunately opinions and leopard spots are nowhere near being the same thing.

    I have no idea what a lepreod is. Do you mean a leper? :eusa_whistle:

    Seriously though, what is the point of this thread? This topic has already been beaten to death several times. I understand it's a slow newsday and Obama has done nothing to make you rage further. However, no need to go back and rehash old news in order to keep the perpetual rage going.

    I like to remind you liberal how much obama wants to change the constitution, his views from the 90's haven't changed. Even though this was from 2009 I doubt his view has changed any.

    Obama taught constitutional law at the University level for 10 years. I'm sure he understands it better than any right winger in the nation.

    :lol: Not much on the humor uptake, are you?

    I would like to remind you that this topic has had it's horse beaten to death so much that they get to get a new one because of the smell. You still haven't told me what the point of putting this thread in politics is other then to have something to complain about when it comes to Obama.

    Does this mean I get to start making random threads about things I didn't like that Bush said that has absolutely no new developments whatsoever?
