Rachel Maddow Mocks Tea Party Rally by Wrongly Saying U.S. Constitution Has No Preamble - Video 11/5/09
Here is video of MSNBC's Rachel Maddow last night doing her best to make fun of, and mock the anti-ObamaCare "Tea Party" rally. At around the 2:00 mark of the video above, she dings GOP Minority Leader John Boehner for saying the U.S. Constitution has a "Preamble." She said it does not have a Preamble! Of course it does! It is in the banner that headlines Freedom's Lighthouse:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.Now, what she could have hit Boehner for is getting the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution mixed up with the Preamble of the Declaration of Independence. He did get that wrong. He quoted from the Declaration:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.Maddow tries to act so superior to anyone who is conservative, and in this case, she made a fool of herself.
