THE HELL IT IS!
The PAPER it’s printed on might be flexible.
The ideas, rights and principles enshrined in the Constitution itself, are not. They are timeless. They are as applicable today as they were 230+ years ago.
The same ‘changing, flexible’ argument is used against the bible, by pretty much the same people. In both cases they don’t like what the bible/Constitution says, so they invent things they say it really says, to soothe their itchy ears.
>>Oh, we have a Constitution. Its a flexible document
>THE HELL IT IS!
That it recognizes and includes an amending-procedure actually DOES make it a ‘flexible document,’ definitionally speaking.
...however, he probably was using the term ‘flexible’ to refer how our political-caste ‘interprets’ the document.
Well, with the amendment process it technically is. Although I consider it as being flexible like a tree is flexible, or the wing on an aircraft. Yeah, it can bend when necessary, but we’re not talking flexible like a gymnast is flexible, or a piece of string.
