Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas) declared the U.S. Constitution to be 400 years old Wednesday on the House floor, which would mean it was signed in 1614.

“Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not,” she said.

Embarrassed and Ashamed

Im so embarrassed to have this idiot represent a great city like Houston.

Of course she does

She thinks slavery began 400 years ago, invented by the people who created the Constitution.

400 years old!

The way she

worded it, imo, makes it difficult to understand exactly what she meant by the 400-year quote.

Anyway, I think it should be a requirement that no one can be President, Senator or Representative (Federal & State for Senator/Rep) unless they know the Constitution inside and out...

Sheila who??

That is all.

So she never says that the

So she never says that the Constitution is 400 years old...she says that the NATION is 400 years old. Which is in a way true...it really depends on if you think of our history only starting in 1776 or 87 or the 1500s...

Listen again

She said "we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not", we haven't been operating under a constitution for 400 years.. She obviously has the IQ of a lamp post.

If she is

a congressional representative. She should be clear on what she says. It looks like she is reading it anyways. So, maybe she should fire her aide that wrote the stupid words in the 1st place. Or, she should know better than to just read something without proof reading it 1st. All in all, she is DUMB!

Maybe poor grammar on her

Maybe poor grammar on her part. It would have been good english to split 400 years and the Constitution into their own clauses.

Judge for yourself her conception of a "clean bill" :

(On the debt ceiling)

"This is not an idea of anyone over another person. Republican and Democratic Senators have already voted for this clean bill that we could vote on today. We have martial law. What that means - and my colleagues know what it means - is that you can put a bill on in just minutes [...]"
