The way The TRUTH the OBAMA

obama03 I've noted the messianic tone supporters have assigned to Obama yet this one is almost blasphemy

Speaking of truth, for Obama, the truth is that the constitution is a "document of negative rights".

And uh, to that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution — at least as it’s been interpreted, and Warren Court interpreted it in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties: [It] says what the states can’t do to you, says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf.
