I think his the TelePrompter was at fault here, actually the only document that could be this old 2000 years is the new Testament of the bible.

Perhaps that is what he was referring too either that or the Quran.

Really. The only document would be the Bible.

Or the Quran.

It doesn't take a "genius" to figure out that the constitution is is not 2000 years old.

Get it.



Sarcasm intended.

Obama claims the Constitution was written over 2,000 years ago. Didn't Obama claim he was a "Constitutional Scholar?"

I'm not sure which I find more astounding...that there is a blog devoted to "Obama's Gaffes", or that it has an audience.

People, people... what's going on here? Has no one bothered to watch the clip? There are no mistakes, no prompter error, no Obama error, nothing.

"And they are charged with the vital task of applying principles put to paper more than twenty centuries ago."

He is obviously talking about the principle of democracy, or democratic political representation, which thrived in ancient Greece over 2000 years ago, a political philosophy that he would like to see upheld by the Supreme Court and the new membership he was presenting.

He barely mentions the constitution...

Then if that is what he was talking about, he may has been talking about Rome after all they were quite modern on politics in their time.



Perhaps Obama is too advance scholarly when compare to regular joes in rural America


Just a joke, blame on the US education system.

Yes they did. It may not have been paper made the way it is made today, but the Greeks of 2,000 years ago and even much earlier often were highly literate and had ample writing implements and materials to write on. They wrote and circulated books and plays, had libraries, etc. Think Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides. . . .and on and on. The ancient Greek civilization has often been called the cradle of democracy.

Hes making a reference to the bible. He says that the constitution is a racist and bigoted document I think. I think minus all the parts that are exclusive, the constitution was well written for back then.
