…by those who do not know its contents. Here’s GOP Presidential candidate Herman Cain:
CAIN: We don’t need to rewrite the Constitution of the United States of America, we need to reread the Constitution and enforce the Constitution. … And I know that there are some people that are not going to do that, so for the benefit of those who are not going to read it because they don’t want us to go by the Constitution, there’s a little section in there that talks about “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
Needless to say, those words are from the Declaration of Independence. Cain’s confusion (he repeatedly referred to the Constitution, so this isn’t just a one-word mix-up, for which I am quite forgiving) actually makes him a more perfect fit for the GOP primary field.
