And if that doesn’t work, just issue an executive order and be done with it. The irony of him saying this at a big bucks fundraiser is just too much.
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.
Don’t quite think he sensed he’d be getting buried by Benghazi, his IRS scandal, his VA scandal and now his Bowe Bergdahl scandal. Even omitting those and other scandals, does this moron think he can amend the Constitution by wishing for it? Is he really that stupid?
