Liberals don’t know the Constitution; No duh.

Liberals don’t know the Constitution; No duh.

The New York Times editorial board apparently doesn’t know what’s in the US Constitution, but then on the basis of their liberal advocacy, we’ve known that for years.

It is an eminently good thing that the anti-suicide measure would require medical specialists to keep track of veterans found to be high risks for suicide. But that’s to care for them as human beings, under that other constitutional right — to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Respect for the grave sacrifices by veterans requires the Senate to strike down the Coburn ploy and hurry this vital measure to President Bush.

NYT editors: In which Article or Amendment of the US Constitution will I find the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Oh yeah, that’s right. We won’t.

It’s one thing to poke fun at Miss Teen USA South Carolina for folding under pressure and flubbing a question about geography and education. It’s another thing when the editors of the supposed newspaper of record get such a simple fact wrong.

Yes, we all make mistakes occasionally, but when you examine the context, it illustrates the larger point that liberals don’t really care what the actual text of the Constitution says, but only what they can make it mean in order to advance their agenda and ideology.
