Want to know why Leftists like #Pelosi don’t respect the U.S. Constitution?

ANSWER: Because they don’t have the tiniest inkling what it even is.

Keep in mind, these are her PREPARED remarks. Pelosi didn’t fall prey to some impromptu civics inquisition as she walked down the street: she had to put pen to paper for this. Ahead of time.

And she probably had staffers check it over, too.

“Nancy Pelosi is thicker than a Charlie Sheen Prenup…” – Dennis Miller

It’s worth noting that each and every member of the House of Representatives swears an oath of office:

“I, (name of Member), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God”

Since Liberals don’t seem to keep to (or understand) so much as a syllable of that oath, I have a suggestion: why don’t we administer a basic U.S. history test instead? That way members of Congress will have at least a passing acquaintance with some of the founding documents they’ll be eviscerating for the next couple of years.

And as an added bonus, maybe then the next Minority House Leader will be able to tell the difference between the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution.

Hey, it’s not like it could make things any worse, right?

UPDATE – 9/24/13 at 4:44pm

Ed over at HotAir weighed in on this, focusing on the primary thrust of Nancy’s speech:

“…What’s more significant in this speech is the agenda that the leader of the House Democratic Caucus stakes out in her speech, according to Jeryl [Bier, of the Weekly Standard]:

Pelosi went on to name three priorities that she and those in her audience at CAP want Congress and the president to address: paycheck fairness, including raising the minimum wage; paid leave to care for sick family members via the Healthy Families Act; and universal child care.

Most Americans have the economy and job creation as their greatest concerns. Two of the issues Pelosi puts as a priority have nothing to do with the concerns of most Americans, and the first one would actually make the job situation and economy worse

Talk about not being on the same page …”

  1. Somebody needs to get Nancy the America Rock episodes of Schoolhouse Rock…

    • HATFIELD!!! Long time, no see, brudda!!!!!!


      Hmmm, Nancy obviously led a deprived life with no Saturday Morning cartoons, …which might explain a FEW things about her, honestly…

  2. We have seen this over and over again, they use the text when it suits them and ignore it when it doesn’t. Her getting the two documents mixed up should surprise nobody, she doesn’t understand either.

  3. the old curmudgeon

    I think her brain needs to be removed to find out what (if anything) is in it.

  4. the old curmudgeon

    Of course I say this not out of any hatred toward this poor deluded individual. My interest is purely scientific.

  5. She also mentioned something about the Seneca, NY Women’s conference of 1884, the start of the women’s suffrage movement. She changed the words a little.

    Which brings to mind a question dear wife asked…What would the Constitution be like if women had had any input?

  6. I see you’re still on the Pelosi kick. You could blog every day on this woman’s erroneous ways fer a year and still have more to say. She’s an inexhaustible resource of evil. Keep up the great blogs JTR

    • Thanks, Slayer.
      I actually wasn’t intending to mention her, and had already passed up some remarkably idiotic drivel she’d said earlier, but I just couldn’t let this one go.

      Can you even IMAGINE the outcry if Sarah Palin had ever made a goof like this? Or Bush?
      We’d still be hearing about…

      But Nincompoop Nancy?
      Not a word; not even a whisper…

      And the Major Media says it’s not biased, and just “follows where the story goes”?

  7. “Hey, it’s not like it could make things any worse, right?”-so right.

  8. What a maroon. What an Eskimo pie head! What an imbessil!

    Pelosi should have read the list of potential side effects associated with Botox.

    PS: any truth to the rumor that Rachel Maddow is Pelosi’s love child with Barney Frank?

  9. Why bother learning about the Constitution when any action is only one “judicial interpretation” away from being declared ok? When the basic words of the document lose their meaning, when any “penumbra” can be found to justify anything, why learn? Since Pelosi et al reject the first three words of the Constitution, why would the rest interest them?
