ABC’s Cokie Roberts said something on national television Sunday that made her colleague George Will shake his head on camera.
During a “This Week” discussion about the recent credit rating downgrade by Standard and Poor’s Roberts said, “The problem that we have here is the Constitution of the United States of America which actually does require people to come together from different perspectives, whether it’s divided government or not. We have divided branches of government under any circumstance.”
Those damned pesky checks and balances. We have entirely too much democracy in this country. What we really need is a dictator to declare what’s good for us. The Constitution doesn’t matter because it’s like so 224 years ago.
Good thing we have Cokie on hand to tell us the real problem.
