Make-Believe

May 21, 2009

Tapper reports:

No, that was not an actual copy of the Constitution behind President Obama as he spoke today.

A spokeswoman for the National Archives confirms that just like in the movie National Treasure, the document on display today was a facsimile.

The klieg lights in the room were way too bright and harsh for the Constitution, which is usually seen just by dim candle-lights, as seen here.

The French Cowboy is glad to hear that the original document didn’t have to turn into a pile of dust because President Obama wanted to give a speech in front of it. Albeit that would have been only a slightly more awkward symbolisation than Obama using a fake Constitution to emphasise his commitment to it.
