The Constitution has been cast aside repeatedly by a Democrat who doesn't qualify for the office; that's enough to get any American upset, so the GOP is rightly so. Mr Murphy's comment is offbase. As to Ms DeLauro, left-handed compliments are better left unsaid; as my Daddy, a WW2 GI and member of the Greatest Generation, used to say, if you don't have anything good to say, keep your mouth shut.
