President Barack Obama does not seem to be too keen on the whole “will of the people” thing, based on remarks he made at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser held in Seattle on Sunday.
While discussing with big money donors his efforts to fundamentally change the United States, the president said the House of Representatives presents the “biggest barrier and impediment” to his idea of progress.
CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller was on hand and shared some of Obama’s remarks via Twitter, as captured by Twitchy.com:
At DCCC fundraiser in Seattle, Pres Obama says “it’s understandable” some people “feel disturbed or concerned” about making progress.

“The biggest barrier and impediment we have right now is the Congress,” says the Pres., “in particular the House of Representatives.” — Mark Knoller (@markknoller) November 25, 2013
When considering that the House was designed to represent the people, a Twitter user pointed out that Obama’s inadvertent honesty amounts to little more than “openly speaking against the will of the people.”
Of course, it’s to our benefit that the moral busybodies on the left always know what’s best for us, as another user shared:
Fortunately, conservatives are always willing to help the misguided left better understand just how government is supposed to work in America:
.@BarackObama We must have a talk about separation of powers sometime..
