Annals of career "progressive" idiocy
The Republicans complain about everything, but they're not doing anything substantial about the president's new focus on using the executive branch to bypass Congress. Yes, they are sending an amicus brief to a case that challenges Obama's recess appointments, but their heart isn't in it.
On some level I think they recognize the president has to act. If he can't get Congress to do anything, he must find another way. To insist otherwise is to insist on a completely impotent president.
Hey, remember the great days of 2009, when Obama had a mandate for hope and change, the House, and the Senate? If Obama "had to act," that was the time. And what did we get on the banksters, the housing crisis, DISemployment, executive powers....
Obama's not "impotent" at all. At every stage he "acted" to do the bidding of his owners, the banksters.
And, oh yeah. IOKIYAD. I'm so old I remember when the theory of the unitary executive was this huge concern of progressives everywhere. Now that their guy does it, not so much.
Anyhow, my heart's not in this either. It's just sad what happened to Booman and the rest of his tribe. They have little relevance now, rather like "independent operators" before the Mob moves in with real pros.
