Washington Examiner editors – Obama ignores Constitution with false “recess appointments” to Labor board, brand new “Consumer Financial Protection Bureau”

Friday, January 6th, 2012

DC Examiner:

It makes zero difference where you stand on political parties, the CFPB, financial reform policy, the NLRB, the imperial presidency or congressional obstructionism.

National Review editors – Obama makes indefensible military cuts

Friday, January 6th, 2012

National Review’s editors.

After the president left the podium and the Pentagon yesterday, it fell to Panetta and General Dempsey to do the yeoman’s work of fielding press questions from the tiny corner into which the White House plan had just backed them. Unable to explain how the United States would be able to carry on as the world’s great power with a military incommensurate with its commitments, General Dempsey was at one point reduced to merely asserting it. “This is not the strategy of a military in decline,” Dempsey said.
