    I cannot believe Congress has done this. The Constitution states that the senate must approve the presidential appointments of each administration. This has been the way it has been since the conception of the Constitution. And when we have the most imperialistic president in history, they give him the right to select whom ever he chooses without going through the senate for approval? Mindboggling! :mad:

    House Passes Bill Eliminating Senate Approval of Presidential Appointments


    So the senate works too hard? Since when?

    What kind of sweet amendments did Harry stick on it to get the House to cave?

    Well, one thing is for sure.

    You can count on Chief Justice Roberts to keep the Supremes from protecting us from such a power grab!

    After all, doing away with the Constitution isn't something that the SCOTUS is supposed to protect us from.

    This makes no sense at all, why would one equal power branch of government give it's power too another branch of the government?

    Oh, we're way to far gone to come back, the Collective has won. It's time to pack the trucks and head for the hills, IMHO.

    We can blame some Republicans for this as well. Ninety five went along with the Democrats. Check to see if you Congressman gave away the house!
    I can't imagine what Department Van Jones will be head of if Barry is re-elected!
