When reading about Eric Holder suggesting we read the Miranda warning to the corpse of Osama Bin Laden, an idea struck me.
When do Democrats think the Constitution really matters?
If a foreign national tries to bomb a plane out of the sky on behalf of Al-Queda, the constitution matters a great deal, since we will make sure he gets a full civilian trial.
If one of that guy’s bosses is seized on an Afghan battlefield, why yes, let’s give him a show trial at Foley Square.
Indeed, the best way to get a top job at the present Department of Justice is to have served as legal counsel to enemy terror detainees.
You see, when it comes to our enemies, the Constitution matters a great deal.
Now, as for this section of the Constitution , well the Democratic Party seems to be a bit less adamant about protecting its provisions.
See, its sort of simple. If you want a bill to pass–especially one people care about–maybe the elected representatives of the people ought to cast a vote they can be accountable for. So, the people can decide whether or not they agree. But not for our Nancy.
“It’s more insider and process-oriented than most people want to know,” the speaker said in a roundtable discussion with bloggers Monday about the reconciliation package. “But I like it,” she said, “because people don’t have to vote on the Senate bill.”
Funny, the term “deem and pass” isn’t in the Constitution. Mind telling me which penumbra its hiding behind?
The Constitution is a funny thing to the Democrats. The people who are trying to destroy the nation are entitled to its most expansive reading of protections.
But as to the taxpayers of the nation, and those members of the minority party whom they represent. Well, they are entitled to nothing as far as Constitutional due process. Nancy Pelosi, meet Judge Dredd.
Perhaps if Al-Queda opposed health care reform Nancy Pelosi would follow the Constitution?
