Senator Alexander to AG Holder on Obama recess appointments; “A blatant lack of regard for the constitutional checks and balances”

08 Mar

During a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing today Senator Lamar Alexander asked AG Holder about the decision made by President Obama to disregard precedent and the constitution’s advise and consent clause (Article II Section 2). After first stating that we need to consider the reality of the totality, Holder gave the following twisted and contorted nonsensical answer.

“The determination was not made by the president. The determination was made by the office of legal counsel and then shared that opinion with the president and the president made the decision as to what he wanted to do.”

If nothing else, Holder deserves some kind of award for lawyerly doublespeak lying.

    Jeez, and G.W. Bush still gets hammered for butchering the English language. Holder takes incomprehensibility to a new level. Is that a word?
