    Constitution reading goes bipartisan - Simmi Aujla - POLITICO.com

    Such utter bullshit, by the Republicans for the grandstanding and by the Democrats for going along with it instead of calling it out as tax-dollar waster this showboating effort was.

    Call me craxy, but I, for one, find it tragic and hypocritical that this is the first time in 234 years that it has ever been read on the floor of the House.

    LONG overdue in my mind, and kudos to BOTH sides for "wasting" an hour on the document that frames their entire existence, duty, and obligation to the Country that defines everything that they are.

    They did not read the Constitution. They left out parts they did not like. An edited Constitution is not the Constitution. It should have been read in the whole.

    Of course you wouldn't mind paying for all the security for the capitol building, our congressmen's salaries, etc. for the length of time it takes to make nothing more than an empty gesture when you know damn well that those who hadn't followed Constitution before this reading became a requirement are sure as hell not going to follow it now.

    This is your Tea Party voter, ladies and gentlemen.

    I guess there was a reason the forefathers didn't need to do this.

    Why should we be paying for such rudimentary on-the-job training that should have been offered in any law school that these idiots must have attended before their election? Hell, they should have studied this in high school civics class.

    Did they read the original or one of the newer versions, after the Leftists got ahold of it and ended slavery?

    ..."calling it out as a tax-dollar waster." I erroneously omitted an "a." My apologies.

    Otherwise, mind putting your thoughts into words?
