I would like to speak on one of Info Ink’s favorite whackos-in-residence, one Michele Bachmann, Rep. from the great state of Minnesota…it seems that with the new Congress, the 112th to be exact, Ms Bachmann wants to bring in experts to teach the Constitution to lawmakers…..
Any Fox News fan will tell you that Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is one of Fox’s favorite members of Congress. To Special Report anchor Bret Baier, she’s “[a]ttractive, energetic, a GOP headliner.” To Fox Business host Andrew Napolitano, she’s a “well-known expert on the Constitution.” To Glenn Beck, she’s “one of the good guys,” and according to him, we “need more people like” her in office.
To other members of Congress, Bachmann is also the founder of the House Tea Party Caucus, and Bachmann has said that in this role, she plans to start holding classes on the Constitution for members of Congress.While Napolitano was guest-hosting the October 12 edition of Glenn Beck, Bachmann said to him: “I’m asking experts from around the country to come in every week and teach our constitutional principles. And Judge, I’ll ask you right now on national TV if you’ll come in and be one of our experts and lead our members of Congress in these principles.” She continued, “I’m serious about this, because we have to make sure that they know what it is that we’re swearing to uphold”:
Under normal circumstances I would be all in favor of anyone learning more about the Constitution and how it works and what it says……B U T!
My question now is….should not the people that we elect to govern already have knowledge of the Constitution and how it works? If people are elected to govern in our name, should they already have a working knowledge of the document?
If not, why would we vote for someone+ that does not know the major document of governance in the US?
Ms Bachmann is NOT doing much to restore confidence in our elected officials if they do NOT know the Constitution……This is the most idiotic piece of crap ever uttered by someone that claims to be an expert on the Constitution about her fellow representatives…..if these wealthy people do not know the Constitution then who will they be governing the country for? You already know that answer….even if you do not want to face the truth…..a hint…..IT IS NOT YOU!
