    Naw, it's only stupid when Sarah Palin or George Bush does it.

    Seriously? This is about as important as "57 States" or the countless times Republicans confused the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

    Who cares?

    Why don't you?

    As I said, I don't really care. I don't watch TV news.

    I think a sitting member of Congress who has been there for a few decades not knowing that the three branches of government are the legislative, judicial, and executive branches, while not a huge ordeal, is worth nothing. It's indicative to the ignorance that makes these jack holes like Schumer think the Constitution gives them unlimited power to do what ever they want.

    How many members of Congress do you think have ever read the U.S. Constitution?

    Do you seriously think that Schumer doesn't know what the three branches of government are? Of course he does. You can say what you want about his politics, but Schumer is not a stupid man. He's a Harvard and Harvard Law School graduate, and member of the US Senate.

    Of course he knows the branches of government. He misspoke. It happens, everyone does it.

    This is about as relevant as the retards who ask "Does Obama really think there are 57 states?"

    The difference here..was that was a flub. Just like 57 states was a flub. When Bachmann talks about FEMA camps, death panels and investigating unamerican activities..she's not "flubbing". This is stuff she really believes in.

    It may have been a flub; it may not have been a flub. I don't know. It's not the same as the 57 states gaffe. You'd have to be a borderline retard to not know there are 50 states in the U.S. Obviously, that was a gaffe. I bet, however, if you walk down the street and ask random people what the three branches of government are, most of them won't know.

    As far as Schumer going to Harvard, that doesn't mean dick. Bush went to Yale and he was a jack hole too. Schumer never had a real job in his life outside of politics and that's probably why all he's ever done is support economic policies, as well as others, that are bad for growth and infringe on the personal freedom of the people. He has absolutely no practical experience in the real world that qualifies him to make decisions that effect the entire world.

    Yes. It was a blunder equal to obama's 57 states claim. Not a real calamity like George Bush mispronouncing nuclear.
    I think he's completely wrong about the credit markets. I, for one would have more faith in the credit of the US if the government did shut down due to the GOP's refusal to extend the debt ceiling. It would show me that finally someone has realized that we are spending ourselves into oblivion.
