McCain loses Bearings on Constitution

In a speech last week at Wake Forest University, McCain said the following:

There is hardly a clearer principle in all the Constitution than the right of private property.¬†There is a very clear standard in the Constitution requiring not only just compensation in the use of eminent domain, but also that private property may NOT be taken for “public use.”

Unfortunately, he got it wrong.

The best part, however, is that McCain’s campaign changed the quote when they posted the transcript, and even edited the video to remove the incorrect statement.
