From Ted Cruz: All Presidential Nominees Should Be Blocked Until Obama Rescinds His Amnesty…

Loose the dogs of war… get ’em Cruz! I absolutely love Ted Cruz and I sooo hope he runs in 2016. This is a brilliant move on his part. Since Obama is dissing the Constitution on Amnesty, well, no appointments for you buddy. I said this same thing in my article on Obama’s lawlessness last week. Cruz is a far better strategist and tactician than Obama. But Obama is ruthless. Block all his Presidential nominees and see where the cards fall.

From Hot Air:

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.

Now, Cruz is saying we should consider nominees for vital national security positions. Unlike the Child-in-Chief, Cruz takes our national security very seriously and knows our worldwide stance is precarious thanks to Obama, to say the least. Every other executive and judicial nominee will be blocked, but people whose job is important to America’s defense get a special dispensation. Except for DHS, who deserves to be gutted and done away with. This absolutely makes sense and is the responsible approach. Any way you go at it, the Dems will find a way to blame the Republicans for something though. I say throw everything at Obama: impeachment, defunding, blocking appointments… see what sticks and cry havoc.
