Welcome aboard, Tim! So you’re the leftist who finally noticed Obama doing something unconstitutional. Of course…
As someone who strongly supported a recess appointment for Richard Cordray…
…you seem puzzled, not outraged. But that puzzlement is genuine:
And I’m really having trouble understanding why Obama didn’t take advantage of his constitutional window yesterday, when the Senate was inarguably in recess.
Simple. It’s about acclimation. America can’t adjust to Obama being above the law unless he continually breaks the law while getting away with it. That’s the point of doing it like that. It’s the real-life Chicago Way.
We’re just seeing it on a national scale now.
So Tim, you caught an unconstitutional Executive grab for Legislative power. Congratulations! Seriously. You’re one in a million; 99.99999% of your allies either can’t or won’t open their eyes to Democrat wrongs. After all, where were all of you when Obama went to war without Congressional approval? Forced Americans into economic servitude? Claimed the right to indefinitely detain Americans without trial? Don’t you remember him trying to seize simultaneous control of all broadcast media?
“Once is happenstance, twice is circumstance, thrice is enemy action.” Ever hear that saying, Mr. Noah? Well, in the conflict between Obama and the Constitution, we’re well past “thrice”. It’s more like “dozens”, maybe even “hundreds”.
Still, for a leftist you have serious mental chops. Because at least you did notice. Once.
But about your response to this epiphany. Are you happy with it, Tim? You probably come down hard on your allies’ wrongdoing, huh? Seriously, I bet you tore somebody a new one. Let’s see you in action!
… the part I have trouble following… I’m having trouble understanding… And I’m really having trouble understanding… Something else I’m having trouble understanding… based on my limited knowledge… I’m at a loss… Nor am I reassured…
You noticed wrongdoing and immediately…begged for reassurances and justifications? Nice. That’ll teach the Administration not to do it again!
Bad news, Tim: being “one in a million” cuts both ways. Out of every million useful idiots, 999,999 are like your commenter here:
Basically, what we’ve got here is a case where the Republicans are subverting the intent of the Constitution
See? Your allies see Democratic malfeasance as proof of Republican wickedness! Such minds are lost, probably forever, in Newspeak. Whereas you, Tim, are still capable of moral judgement; you’ve not yet killed your sense of right and wrong. So…what do you say?
Par-tay! To be clear: I favor a bolder stance by our president to counter Republican obstruction. But I just don’t see how these appointments can be legal.
Are you serious, man? You’ve got to…hey, watch out!
BOSTON MA—Following a spectacular rescue by the U.S.S. Constitution, Mr. Tim Noah immediately tripped over his own feet and fell overboard. He is presumed lost at sea.
