RNC Slams Obama For Opposing Slavery

The RNC sent out this twitter update Thursday bashing Obama for calling the original  constitution deeply flawed. Of course, they left out this important part:

Media Matters:

A September 6, 2001 program called “Slavery and the Constitution” on WBEZ Chicago…. Obama explained that the “fundamental flaw” [in the Constitution] was [that] “Africans at the time were not considered as part of the polity that was of concern to the framers.” In addition, the framers did not “see…it as a moral problem involving persons of moral worth.”

My name is Phillip Allen, and I too think the constitution was deeply flawed.
