“Not so harmless, however, is the promise to require every bill to be certified as constitutional before it is voted on. We have a mechanism for assessing the constitutionality of legislation, which is the independent judiciary. An extraconstitutional attempt to limit the powers of Congress is dangerous even as a mere suggestion, and it constitutes an encroachment on the judiciary.”
Adler’s an idiot. He really should read the document of which he purports to be knowledgeable before offering opinions on its content. Hell, I’ve got a copy on my Free Stuff page which he’s welcome to at any time. But facts are anathema to the propagandists working for Newsweek, most of whom have never performed a day’s worth of honest reportage since the moment they escaped the ivied halls of academia and entered into what passes among liberals for the real world. They’d rather eat rat poison (and I wish they would). I refer the idiot Adler to Article 1, Section 5, Paragraph 2:
- “Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behavior, and, with the Concurrence of two-thirds, expel a Member.
The only people “encroaching on the judiciary” are Barack Obama, his minions in Congress who saddled it with leftist ideologues like Sotomayor and Kagan, and “journalists” like Adler who cheer them all on.
