Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

How is the Constitution alive?

Here’s the Thompson attack, which is a quibble about Huckabee’s language, not about the substance of what he says. I would have expected better from Thompson. You can watch the clip for yourself. Not the most felicitous use of words, but his meaning is clear enough: the Constitution can be amended--it is, after all, an expression of the constitutional will of the people--while the Bible cannot.

And Fred knows that, properly understood (not twisted for political purposes), Huckabee’s statement is consistent with what he says on his website.

As they say, a broken clock is correct twice a day.

So maybe Fred used Huckabee's words in the wrong context. Small error (deliberate or not) on Thompson's part, compared to all the other things he gets right.

Idiotic things coming out of Huckabee 24-7.
I don't see Fred's use of the issue politically is so off-putting.
