In Passing

“Yet another important reason that Dick Lugar should be sent packing...”

Primary Mission  Dept
Scott Fuhr:
Here’s another brilliant idea from the (perhaps a little rusty) steel trap mind of Indiana’s senior senator... a bill that does away with the requirement that the Senate approve of hundreds of Presidential appointees.

If you thought Obama’s czars were bad, just wait until he can appoint all sorts of regular government officials to positions of authority without Senate approval.

Saint Dick apparently thought this was such a good idea that he signed on the dotted line to sponsor this legislation (known as S. 679) on the very first day it was filed, alongside Dick Durbin of Illinois, Chuck Schumer of New York, and Harry Reid himself.

...not to mention the 6 other Republicans on the list:
Lamar Alexander [R-TN]
Scott P. Brown [R-MA]
Susan M. Collins [R-ME]
Mike Johans [R-NE]
Jon Kyl [R-AZ]
Mitch McConnell [R-KY]

Just what America needs.  Less congressional supervision of the executive. 

WTF is wrong with these people?
