I'm of the opinion that it's more because of the rise of partisan politics and the needless political grandstanding that comes with it. Republicans are evil big business bullies who want to sell yellowstone to comcast and Democrats are soft babies who want to let illegals take our jerbs, and nothing that one side suggests can possibly be of benefit to the other.

Sure, partisan politics is a big part of it. Also, I would suggest that the Right has done more than the left to suggest that amending the constitution is somehow un-patriotic, unless it is to make abortion illegal or something like that. That said, I don't think that there is a politician on either side that embraces Citizens United. At least not publicly.
