Nancy Pelosi confuses the Constitution


Apparently Rep Nancy Pelosi doesn't know the difference between the two most important founding documents in our nation's history, The Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.

Speaking last week at a at a Center for American Progress event Ms Pelosi said this:

“And so, it was 165 years ago, 165 years ago. Imagine the courage it took for those women to go to Seneca Falls and do what they did there, to even leave home without their husband’s permission, or father’s, or whoever it was. To go to Seneca Falls, and to paraphrase what our founders said in the Constitution of the United States: they said the truths that are self-evident, that every man and woman, that men and women were created equal and that we must go forward in recognition of that.”

First of all, that quote is from the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution and further, it says "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal." Try as much as you like Nancy, the document doesn't say men and women, it only says men. Not to disparage women in any way, but Ms Pelosi not only gets the quote wrong, she takes it from the wrong founding document.

Granted, everyone makes mistakes between these 2 documents, but this was from a prepared speech for a woman who used to be Speaker of The House.

Don't you think it's important our elected government officials know the difference between the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence? Watch the video and leave your comments below:
