Richard Stengel is going to take an oath to hold up the Constitution if he is confirmed. I am willing to bet that this oath will mean nothing to him.
The truth is there is a whole class of people who consider the Constitution an impediment to what they see as “progress.” They loathe that such a document restricts their effort at consolidation, their quest for an all pervasive state, for frankly a benevolent totalitarianism. They have little use for an ancient document written by a bunch of slave holding yokels who lived before the dawn of Marx.

“We can pat ourselves on the back about the past 223 years, but we cannot let the Constitution become an obstacle to the U.S.’s moving into the future with a sensible health care system, a globalized economy, an evolving sense of civil and political rights,”
