Here’s what he said to the CPAC folks:
“We love and revere our founding documents, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. We believe that the preamble of the Constitution contains an inarguable truth, that we are all endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, among them life, liberty, freedom. And the pursuit of happiness . . ..”
Of course this is what the preamble actually says:
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. ”
And of course everyone at CPAC ate it up because none of them have any idea what these documents actually say.
The death rattles of the Republican Party are getting fainter and fainter.
