Our Postmodern President

Victor Davis Hanson exposes the current occupier of the oval office as an ends justifies the means politician.
Whether Congress is, or is not, in recess, or whether wealthy bondholders should be paid back before working-class union pensioners, or whether some company should or should not be allowed to drill in the Gulf — these and others are moral and political, but not necessarily legal, issues. To the degree that he can, on any given challenge Obama assesses the politics of favoring his constituency of the “poor” and “middle class,” and then uses the necessary legal gymnastics post facto to offer the veneer of lawfulness.

For some reason it would appear after a few recent posts that New Anonymous is on Bob's side of the aisle. That's great because now there are two liberals posting on Spencerblog. That said, being a person who once transitioned from the upper-lower class to the lower-middle class to finally making it to the middle-middle class, and thanks to the Obama polices now back down to the lower-middle class and on my way once again to the upper-lower class, I find it hard to understand how anyone can perceive that President Obama's policies are favoring the middle class of any strata that exists therewithin. Not.

"It's astounding to me that the president is claiming these are recess appointments and within his authority, when Congress was not in fact in recess," said Black. "These appointments are an affront to the Constitution. No matter how you look at this, it doesn't pass the smell test. I hope the House considers my resolution as soon as we return to Washington so we can send a message to President Obama."
