I watched President Obama’s speech last night, but between tweeting and blogging, I managed to miss something very important. I tortured myself and watched it a second time, and came across this little nugget…
During a part of his speech, he was talking about American innovation and technology, and how our country has progressed because we worked together. Then he said this…
What kind of country would this be if this Chamber
had voted down Social Security or Medicare just because it violated
some rigid idea about what government could or could not do?
He was talking about the Constitution here. This shows blatant disrespect and disregard for the document upon which our country was founded. He knows these programs violate the Constitution, just like his health care legislation. But he doesn’t care.
Why has the media not picked up on this? Where is the outrage?
