Megyn Kelly Grills NY Times
Op-Ed Author Who Wrote That U.S.
Should ‘Give Up’ On Constitution

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/4/2013 3:44:00 PM

Appearing on Fox News’ America Live this afternoon, Georgetown professor Mike Seidman took a grilling from host Megyn Kelly over his recent New York Times op-ed which suggested the U.S. “give up” on the Constitution and its “archaic, idiosyncratic and downrght evil provisions.” Seidman began the interview praising Kelly for allowing him to come on the show, despite the fact that “a the lot of viewers don’t agree with what I have to say.” In turn, Kelly praised the “thought-provoking” and “interesting” nature of the controversial op-ed. The Georgetown professor then explained his basic thesis as such:

She had far more patience with this guy than I ever would have had. He has no business teaching constitutional law if this is what he believes. He did surprise me with his statement concerning the Supreme Court.

Megyn is good at this sort of discussion and she realizes it´s better to engage him publicly than to just ignore him. She also is respectful, but very firm, even if she´d like to behave differently.

This man manifests an ignorance about the background, origin, and debates over the crafting of the United States Constitution that is appalling, and that would simply be unbelievable if we did not have the proof he himself provides right before our eyes. It is as though he is utterly unfamiliar with the actual thinking of the Founders and the basis for the document he disparages as the outdated beliefs of some dead people. That an individual of such limited knowledge and comprehension should be in a position of trust and authority is alarming beyond measure. One almost feels it to be an emergency requiring immediate action and notification of someone. Something is terribly, terribly wrong here. If I were in charge of Georgetown University, the first thing I would do is order a careful re-examination and re-verification of his academic credentials to be certain he is who he claims to be and has completed the training he says he has. What on earth is going on when a professor who specializes in the Constitution knows less about it than a graduate of a good high school?

The professor could maybe be well educated while not being a critical thinker. Such a person usually doesn´t understand that without the arcane Constitution he spurns is the only enduring moral compass that allows him to voice his attitude and ideas freely.
Without that laws to protect that standard of conduct he could be tossed in jail for life with out a trial if the ruling powers decreed.

"a lot of viewers don´t agree with what I have to say."

Way too modest there, Seidman. To be fair, a lot of viewers are deeply insulted and offended by what you have to say. In many other countries, investigators would look for you in the wake of such comments, but would only be able to locate a few parts. Try reading the Federalist Papers sometime, if you want to call yourself a Constitutional scholar.

Likewise, the next person who characterizes the Electoral College as oppressive (within arm´s reach of me) will get a quick smack upside the head for being totally ignorant about the Great Compromise.

Megyn gave him a platform so America could see just what a Georgetown professor is spewing about his country. It´s hard to listen to but I am glad she invited him. Good job, Megyn.

This man is not ignorant; he is introducing the next evolution of the one world order progressives, of whom Obama is a hood ornament.

While Obama is having great success in moving America toward the EU socialist welfare state, he and his handlers will eventually come up against immovable and immutable elements of the Constitution. The professor is preparing the ground for that eventuality, and the inevitable debate on whether the time has come to discard the constitution.

That´s what I was going to say, #8. I´m sure Seidman has a reasonably good mind that he has chosen to channel down a narrow avenue of leftist thinking. Anything outside that is warped or ignored by him. Contrary reaction to his view will not force him to weigh the alternatives, he´s locked in. He´s an avatar of elite leftism or, in other words, a very bad man.

The class of people who live for ideas do not pay a penalty if their ideas do not work in the real world. Aren´t I clever? Original? Provocative? Bravely against the grain? Nimbly verbal? Widely quoted? Admired by other idea people? Vain tinsel. The founders were steel and will be revered long after the tinselmen are forgotten.

When people complain about the Constitution I am always reminded of the movie "Scent of a Woman." Pacino´s character says he always knew the right path, but he never took it. Why? Because it was too damn hard.

These simpering whiners remind me of that. It´s too hard to convince a majority of the people to give up their liberty. So he wants that dysfunctional parliamentary system that has given Europe such a economic benefit (Italy,Spain, Greece,France), all on the backs of the taxpayers of a Constitutional Republic who has provided military cover for over 60 years.

I would suggest this parliamentary consensus builder move to Europe where he can indulge himself in his fantasy of government that "respects" rights, rather than a people who demand their rights. The former is wishful thinking; the latter is just too damned hard.

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

The Obama administration is considering whether to require that television broadcasts of emergency announcements be provided in different languages. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Thursday said it is reconsidering a rule that would provide Spanish broadcasts of emergency alerts and other important announcements. The rule was originally recommended in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Back then, groups including the Minority Media and Telecommunications Council (MMTC) petitioned the FCC to require broadcasters to notify Spanish listeners in the event of an emergency. "MMTC filed its petition on Sept. 22, 2005, in response to its perceived deficiencies in distributing multilingual emergency information

Passing comprehensive immigration reform is more important than Democrats´ success at the polls in November, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday. A number of Republicans and other conservative voices have accused Pelosi and the Democrats of using the immigration reform issue as a political crutch, suggesting the Democrats would rather keep the issue alive for campaign purposes than actually pass a bill. But Pelosi on Thursday rejected that notion outright, and she didn´t mince words. "I believe, and I say this with all the sincerity I have, that it is more important to pass comprehensive immigration reform —

The Republican Party´s rising Senate prospects are forcing House Republicans to craft a health care agenda that could function as a feasible legislative blueprint for overhauling Obamacare in January 2015. The Republican-controlled House has approved legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act and reform aspects of the law several times, only to see the bills die in a Democratic-led Senate that is committed to preserving the law. That dynamic would change if Republicans win six Democratic-held seats and assume control of the Senate in November, as appears increasingly possible.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s.

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable.

As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church
