Pretend Constitutionalists Who Haven’t Read The Document They Slaver Over
Posted by That Other Mike on 09/05/2011
[The President] by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone […].
Some fucking Constitutionalists you are; if you’re going to quote portions of the Constitution, you might want to actually read through to the end of the paragraph, you halfwits. The Bill in question simply allows the President to appoint certain Federal officers without having to go via the Senate. This is an entirely Constitutional idea which should also be entirely uncontroversial, but apparently we live in a time where moronic right-wing bloggers froth at the mouth over the President’s choice of breakfast cereal and how it reveals him to be a secret Marxist.
