I too don't like the idea of a federal constitution/government, and 
Obama is proving the fear of many (see link):

During the period of debate over the ratification of the 
Constitution, numerous independent local speeches and articles were 
published all across the country. Initially, many of the articles in 
opposition were written under pseudonyms, such as "Brutus", 
"Centinel", and "Federal Farmer". Eventually, famous revolutionary 
figures such as Patrick Henry came out publicly against the 
Constitution. They argued that the strong national government 
proposed by the Federalists was a threat to the rights of individuals 
and that the President would become a king. They objected to the 
federal court system created by the proposed constitution. This 
produced a phenomenal body of political writing; the best and most 
influential of these articles and speeches were gathered by 
historians into a collection known as the Anti-Federalist Papers in 
allusion to the Federalist Papers. (Summary by Ticktockman)
