Cokie Roberts: “The Problem We Have Here Is The Constitution…”

How does one get a name like ‘Cokie’?

If this isn’t an insight into the mind of a leftist I don’t know what is.

    Okay Jim, I am going to play the Devil’s Advocate here. I am no Cokie Roberts fan but I think she is okay here. Here is why…

    I might say something like this…

      “Mohammad Atta would have preferred to use handguns rather than box cutters but the problem was security would spot them…”


      “Adolf Hitler wanted to kill all the Jews quickly but the problem was that the job was just too large…”

    In each case I am talking about the problem from the perspective of Atta and Hitler. I am not making the case that it is my problem. I think Roberts was doing the same thing here.

    She may very well think the Constitution is a problem, but this video doesn’t prove that.

    You may believe it’s necessary to play by the rules with leftists. I believe they should be called on anything they say or do that I consider to be questionable. There is nothing wrong with putting the onus of proof on them.

    It is what they do with conservatives daily. I don’t believe we can beat them if we don’t do our best.

    To make an accurate assessment on this I’d need to see the whole bite to see if this was merely a factual comment or a lament.

    In a moonbat’s mind anything having to do with the Constitution standing between them and their goals is a lament.. That goes without saying..

  4. R.D. Walker says:


    Yeah, I see your point. Still, I’d like to think we are more intellectually honest than they are and we have truth on our side. I was just playing Devil’s advocate. As Rock points out, it is hard to tell from that clip.

  5. Uke says:

    Context is important. We can’t be baited into playing by dishonest rules.

    She may actually think the Constitution is a real problem, but that cannot be ascertained from this clip.
