  • Barack Obama

    From what I can tell this guy is just a rhetoric machine. He claims to be fighting for the little man all the time.

    Here's what he said about judge John Roberts:

    After a 45-minute meeting with Roberts on Wednesday, Illinois' other Democratic senator, Barack Obama, said he had not yet decided whether he would support the nominee.

    "I'll be arriving at a decision in the next couple of days," Obama said. "I found him very intelligent, very capable. I still did not get a clear sense of where his heart is in understanding the role of the court in protecting the little guy."


    Huh? His job is to protect/uphold the Constitution. If anyone should be protecting the "little guy", it's legislators. Now STFU.

    I like him a lot.

    And upholding the Constitution entails protecting the little guy, which is the whole point of the Bill of Rights.

      Many argue that the Court serves to counter the potential "tyranny of the majority" that could result from actions of the legislature. That it is the Court, as protector of the Constitution, should serve to check the potential abuse of civil liberties that a runaway legislature might enact.

              That's fine if upholding the Constitution results in protecting the little guy. But the focus is the Constitution -- not protecting the little guy. Sounds like Mr. Obama MAY be a fan of judicial activism. Or maybe I'm reading to much into it. Regardless, I don't think it was the right thing to say. But that's all I hear out of that guy.

                  It's called "activism" if the other guy's doing it.

                      I'm not saying it's a bad thing to protect the "little guy" -- in fact, I love midgets. But he really comes across as a person who's trying hard to craft an image. I don't know how much substance is there. Time will tell. But when he interjects that stuff into everything he says, it's annoying. Roberts job will be to interpret the Constitution. That's it.

                            Of course he's trying to craft an image. He's a politician. You don't think every pol of every party has tried to "craft an image?" You really think Bush is a brush-clearing ranch hand? The guy's a fucking Northeastern preppy, but he has folks convinced he's staright Texan.

                            Obama is a threat, thus all the hand-wringing.
