That 100 Year Old Constitution To Ancient to Follow

Ezra Klein of the Washington Post seems to think that the Constitution is not worth paying attention to because people fight over its meaning and because it's just so darn old (it's over a hundred, he complains!)

The Washington Post's Ezra Klein appeared on MSNBC's Daily Rundown, Thursday, to mock the incoming Republicans for their stated fixation on the Constitution, asserting that the document is rather old and "confusing." MSNBC's Norah O'Donnell dismissed the GOP effort as "lip service" and wondered if it was a "gimmick."

Klein is right about one thing - liberals are trying to twist the meaning of the constitution to turn us into a society that better resembles the nirvana they imagine.


After playing clips of Republicans claiming they would reject legislation that couldn't be justified constitutionally, Klein complained, "The issue of the Constitution is that the text is confusing because it was written more than 100 years ago and what people believe it says differs from person to person and differs depending on what they want to get done."
