A Blatant, Frontal Assault On The Constitution's Separation of Powers, Thanks To The Weird Foreign Drifter in the White House

Yes, a third post.

This is nothing less than an assault by President Obama on the entire institution of the Senate. And it appears to serve no purpose other than Obama telling the Senate that he will do whatever he darn well pleases.

I can safely say that this is the ballsiest thing I have ever seen a President do that served absolutely no meaningful purpose at all. If Congress – and I am including Congressional Democrats in this – takes this lying down, it will set a breathtaking precedent and instantaneously demolish a significant part of Congress’ relevance. Consider that if Congress allows this to stand, then the next Republican President might just announce Jay Sekulow for his next SCOTUS appointment, and then two weeks later when the Senate breaks for the weekend, declare them in recess and appoint him to the Court. If Democrats consider this to be an undesirable view of the future, I would suggest that they figure out a way to cooperate with Republicans in making Obama pay a very real price for this blatant slap at their constitutional authority.

Harry Reid, by the way, used the same tactic of non-recessing Senate sessions to block a would-be Bush appointee. It appears (correct me if I'm wrong) that Bush respected the Constitution and did not dream up a unilateral power to trump Reid.


Drew says Obama only serves power. I say "ego." He's treating a 230 year old Constitution that has served us well as if it's a mere game. If he "wins," he gets more adulation from his demended ballsucking cultists.
