CBS´s Charles Osgood: ´Is
Constitution Truly Worthy
of Reverence in Which
Most Americans Hold It?´

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/28/2013 10:26:48 AM

Imagine you´re getting ready to head to church one fine Sunday morning and on your television you hear a man say, "Let´s give up on the Constitution." Such actually happened when CBS News Sunday Morning aired a rather inflammatory commentary by a Georgetown University law professor teased by host Charles Osgood asking, "Is the U.S. Constitution truly worthy of the reverence in which most Americans hold it?" (video follows with transcript and commentary): CHARLES OSGOOD, HOST: Is the U.S. Constitution truly worthy of the reverence in which most Americans hold it?

Comments:
I certainly never thought I would see conduct like this during my lifetime.

This usurper has emboldened them to bare their true feelings about this nation and its founding principles.

Is it any wonder why they are so aggressively seeking to take away from the American public the firearms that are most effective in resisting tyranny?

He is professor of CONSTITUTIONAL law at Georgetown. Great. A constitutional law professor teaching contempt for the constitution. I suppose if seminaries can employ atheists to teach Christianity, why not this? Georgetown is the incubator for American Communitarianism, so this should be expected. But I wonder how many prospective law students, and their parents who will be writing the tuition checks, fully understand the anti-American sewer they are wading into.

The revered Constitution didn´t even hold this country together for 100 years. And Lincoln shredded it in order to ´preserve´ it. We know there are incredible flaws that allow the ´checks and balances´ to eliminate the will of the people (look at the SCOTUS´ decision on Obambicare). Our constitution allows our lawmakers to exempt themselves for the very laws that enslave us. Our goobernment has agencies that are unaccountable to anyone or anything (HHS and rules on Obambicare). Our constitution now allows for legalization of abhorrent behavior (abortion, homosexual marriage). What is legal isn’t right and our goobernment and its beloved Constitution leave no proves for eliminating the evil imposed by the SCOTUS. The one saving grace in the near worthless parchment is for now we can bear arms and thus be in a better position for revolution. So Osgood is correct in that we need to destroy the flawed docuament we ahve now and create one that eliminates the ability of a ruthless and evil goobernment from enslaving us.

If this was a way to open a serious discussion on why the Constitution is vital to freedom throughout the world, then I say rock on! However, if it is just to bash America some more, Well that a whole different kettle of fish.

The Constitution is the best representation of Rule of Law. If you do not have reverence towards it, your attitude towards the rule of law is suspect. What the lefty is really trying to say is that the Constitution holds out a constant, fair and unchanging common platform for peacefully resolving differences. What he and 0bama would rather have is a framework where their views will take precedence over those who disagree with them. Thats what the entire struggle is all about.

The *better* question would be - ´Is CBS News
Truly Worthy of Reverence in WhichMost Americans Hold It?´

A few decades ago, CBS News was probably one of the most trusted outlets going. As Dan Rather conveniently pointed out, however...the propaganda eventually beat out unbiased reporting.

From 60 Minutes on down - CBS News is now better described as the farce that keeps on giving, and pretty far down the scale as far as ´actual´ news reporting goes.

Tough cookies, CBS. Thinking Americans know you´re no longer on the ´thinking´ side of the equation.

#7, as right as your observations are, I hope your conclusions are not. Now I´m depressed.

The people who created that constitution started a country from savage wilderness. Many people fought to the death to make it a reality.
The US communists have created nothing. In fact, they have severely damaged a thriving republic. Gee, I wonder who I should hold in greater reverence?

1. There are some 190 countries that don´t use the US Constitution. Planes leave the US every day. In, oh, 6 to 10 hours, any American can be in one of those countries, so there´s obviously no need to throw out the Constitution here.

2. Seidman is incapable of rational thinking, unwilling to employ it, or both.

3. FTA: To be clear, I don´t think we should give up on everything in the Constitution. The Constitution has many important and inspiring provisions, but we should obey these because they are important and inspiring, not because a bunch of people who are now long-dead favored them two centuries ago.

So Seidman maintains that every law is made moot when those who voted for it die?

Here´s what Daniel Webster, one of America´s greatest constitutional lawyers/scholars, had to offer on the importance of The United States Constitution:

"Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world."

Daniel Webster
(1782-1852)

For the upcoming super bowl game next Sunday NFL judges will NOT use the accepted NFL rule book. Instead, the judges will make determination and rulings based on their experiences, the mood of the public, the score, and the outcome they want.

This is what progressive-ism is all about, take down the country has been their goal for 100+ years. And to think Hillary calls herself a "Modern Progressive", the thought of her being our next president is truly frightening. It will be more of the same of what´s in there now.

I am glad I grew up in the 50s. I look back with fondness.
Now in my twilight years, will I find it necessary to lie to preserve my right to healthcare, no more candor with my doctor, lest it be reported to the government? Neighbors will spy on neighbors, children will spy on parents. And America will be no more.

The Constitution is most certainly deserving of the reverence and esteem that the American Citizens hold for it. Unfortunately, Federal Agenst, Congress and the President seem to hove less reverence for the document that created their positions than for the people who pay their salaries.

For the citizen the Constitution is a shield against public officials. For a Public Official, the Constitution is an impediment to their achieving a given objective.

Who in the world is Charles Osgood? Just like a liberal, if it does not work for them, then just toss it out and do what you want, after all, that´s what our president is doing. I have great respect for our founding fathers who had the intelligence to put checks and balances in our constitutution, so that one branch cannot force their wishes upon the other.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

After his Masters victory, pro golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with his family at a Waffle House. Pictures tweeted from there went viral. Waffle House appreciated the appreciation. What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto´s Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh´s

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Without mentioning reports that the man accused of shooting up a Jewish Community Center over the weekend was apparently a fan of the left´s Max Blumenthal, CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen exploited the murders to claim the American Right is more deadly than jihadists. In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the

It’s not every day that Bill O’Reilly accuses someone else of expressing “right-wing paranoia,” but that’s what happened Tuesday night when he faced off with Fox News contributor Monica Crowley over a proposed solution to the controversy over voter ID laws. O’Reilly began his show by giving a soft endorsement to an idea put forward by former President Bill Clinton that would add photos to social security cards, which American citizens are already required to have in their possession. “I am all for combating voter fraud by using voter I.D.,” Crowley told O’Reilly. “My issue with the social security card in particular

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
