Thank You Senator Cruz, Hot Air, and Mr Stone.Another leftover from Sunday brunch via the Corner. Joel Pollak floated this idea a few weeks ago in a piece for Breitbart. I thought of it again on Thursday night, when I was busy enjoying my vacation from HA by watching Obama’s amnesty speech and screaming at my TV. Now here’s Cruz proposing the same plan, although with two caveats. One: It’s not so much that he wants the Senate to block O’s nominees as he wants Mitch McConnell to refuse to bring those nominations to the floor in the first place. That’s a clever way of killing two birds with one stone. If McConnell follows Cruz’s plan, Cruz can take credit among conservative voters for having been the motive force in bottling up O’s nominees. If McConnell doesn’t follow Cruz’s plan, Cruz can point to it as proof that the establishment squishes refuse to fight the White House with everything they’ve got, which of course is why we need to nominate someone like Ted Cruz in 2016. Even so, I like the idea on the merits. If Obama won’t respect Congress’s constitutional power to set policy, why should the Senate respect Obama’s constitutional power to staff the executive and judicial branches? He’s the one who declared war on separation of powers. Let him live with the consequences. Plus, who knows? Maybe he’ll go rogue again and decide that he has some sort of emergency power to confirm nominees himself if the Senate won’t do it. I figure we’re only eight or nine more grossly unconstitutional actions away from the media beginning to express “concern” about Obama’s behavior.
We actually have statesmen like Ted Cruz, and we'll be damned but the RINOcracy will try to shove Romney or Jeb Bush at us for 2016.
Just another smidgeon of the Obama Legacy:
#Ferguson: This Is What Leftism Looks Like
This is just a tiny sample of the Intentionally, Politically Engineered License and Riot Obama and his partisans have created, which Senator Cruz (and everyone else whose paying attention in America) are being subjected to.
Could someone tell us what the owner of this car lot did to the people who torched it?
