Posted on 12/30/2010 9:13:23 AM PST by Federalist Patriot
Here is video of liberal Ezra Klein actually saying today that the U.S. Constitution is confusing because it was written more than a hundred years ago.
Klein made the remarks in response to news that the new GOP-controlled House of Representatives is going to begin the new session of Congress by (gasp!) reading the United States Constitution out loud!
No, Ezra the Constitution is not confusing, and it was actually written more than 200 years ago! It is just inconvenient to liberals like you because it actually limits the power of the Federal Government, which goes against ever fiber of your being.

These America-hating communists cannot even come up with good lies and excuses any more to nullify our Constitution. What a crock.
Gee, maybe Liberals aren’t really smarter than Conservatives.
Klein must be a public school graduate.
More confusing than the average piece of legislation coming out of Congress today?
“Klein must be a public school graduate.”
Sounds more like a Harvard Law graduate.
Well this would help to explain why their Leader in the house demands that laws be passed before they are read...because they have too much difficulty understanding them.
Liberalism is a mental disorder.
The same could be said of Marx’s Das Capital, but liberals have no problem at all understanding that.
You can’t fix this kind of weapons-grade stupid.
Math class was tuff (so was Anglesh and hestory)...
Maybe he is right, since the government and courts seem to find it so confusing that they keep trying to rewrite it.......Kelo vs. New London. I can’t find where it says the government can take your stuff if some other guy says he can pay more taxes on it than you.
It really quite simple, even for Leftist pinheads.
It is all about the clearly limiting, proscribed powers of government.
In other words, if it is not in the Constitution, the US government CANNOT do it.
More from the idiot-ridden far-left........if the Earth had indeed been flat, these SOBs would have already fallen off the left side of it..../s =.=
Klein is probably an atheist, since the Bible and Koran were written at least 1,300 years ago.
Klein was born in Irvine, California, where he attended University High School. He attended the University of California, Santa Cruz but later transferred to the University of California, Los Angeles, from which he graduated in 2005 with a B.A. in political science.
Klein was raised Jewish.
Then he would have REAL problems with the Torah.
Life is tough. Life is tougher when you are stupid. - Duke
Klein must still be recovering from his grueling high school English Literature class. They made him read The Scarlet Letter and Huckleberry Finn.
Treasonous trash like Ezra Klein are the reason I see American Liberals as being in need of a trail, followed by drawing and quartering.
That was the traditional punishment for treason, after all.
Klein is a Liberal Jew, educated at UCLA and it majored in political science.
Fittingly, he is a California product, not that anyone would be surprised by his opinions, such as they are.
Treason on two feet.
Respectfully FP the Constitution may be confusing to Liberals who may be reading it for the first time. I can hear the remarks in Congress now, “Hey where’s the abortion and Gay Rights clause?” LOL!
This country has declined to the point that it must be renewed.
Since the Ten Commandments were written almost 3,000 years ago they would have to be utterly incomprehensible.
How about this ‘street’ version for ezra:
Us Peeps of this here place, cuz we need a onion and some Nyquil an D fence an fo’ sho welfare checks on our orderly prostate dun rit up dis Constitooshun.
Trail? Slugs leave trails...
So Klein says the Constitution means something different to everyone. Seems to me it is pretty straight forward. But of course it’s going to seem confusing to someone like him. He probably can’t get past the first sentence without someone explaining it to him.
He obviously cannot understand “shall NOT be infringed!” in the 2nd Amendment.
Ezra Klein is the slithering dumb@$$ founder of the behind the behind-the-scenes Journolist and the coordinated attempts to discredit Sarah Palin immediately upon her selection as VP running mate.
I don't much go for “what was the most under reported news story of 2XXX?” questions, but the Journolist revelation of 150+ who conspired to shred Palin, the Tea Party and protect Hussein from criticism still makes my blood boil.
Nothing by any of that bunch should be printed without a Journolist Disclaimer.
Liberal Pundit Says U.S. Constitution Confusing because it was Written 100+ Years Ago/////
So was the Communist Manifesto but he hasn’t expressed any problem understanding it.
Yea, that damn "thinking" thing again, right?
Ezra is the skinny version of Megan McCain.
“So was the Communist Manifesto but he hasnt expressed any problem understanding it.”
And we severely need about a dozen Joseph McCarthy types now in the House!!! Recall how badly he was maligned — because he was RIGHT!!! Not much has changed since his tenure. RIP Joseph McCarthy.
because he was RIGHT!!! Not much has changed since his tenure. RIP Joseph McCarthy.
You are so right.
Obama admits the Constitution is a document of negative freedoms because it limits the powers of the federal government. God help us.
The interviewer asks if the Republicans reading the Constitution aloud on the House floor is a gimmick:
Ezra Klein: “...of course it’s a gimmick...” “...it has no binding power on anything...”
The liberal left’s view of the U.S. Constitution: it’s just an old confusing, contradictory, and meaningless piece of paper, without value or power, not even a somewhat interesting footnote to history (much the same way they view the Holy Bible).
“Is it time, yet?”
I'm not sure what kind of death, but it will be something particularly unpleasant, probably involving Tabasco sauce, midgets, and/or wasps.
My typo - should have been trial.
