Obama and the Constitution

In a 2001 radio show Obama said this about the Bill of Rights: "it says what the states can't do to you, it 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." For someone who claimed to be a Constitutional Law Professor he seems to have little understanding of why the BoR was written. It was put in the Constitution to limit the powers of Government by writing down the rights a person has.

In the Constitution the Preamble, to me, kind of states what the Federal Government must do on your behalf.
