Debbie Wasserman Schultz issues clear condemnation of Obama

posted at 10:01 am on July 31, 2014 by Noah Rothman

It appears that President Barack Obama has lost the support of even the members of his own party in Congress. On Wednesday, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), the sitting chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, condemned the president in terms so clear that they cannot be mistaken for anything other than a denunciation.

In an appearance on MSNBC on Wednesday, while discussing the House’s lawsuit against the White House over what they allege is the ideological and selective enforcement of existing law, Wasserman Schultz issued a stern rebuke of Obama’s managerial and leadership style (via Lachlan Markay):

Wasserman Schultz accused Obama of “doing his job less often and at a rate that is lower than any president since Grover Cleveland.”

Sarcasm aside, what she is likely saying here is that Obama has issued fewer executive orders than did most of his predecessors. If that is an accurate interpretation, it is worth noting that Wasserman Schultz disturbingly equated the president issuing executive edicts with “doing his job.” That’s a unique take on the role of chief executive, especially considering that the Supreme Court recently ruled by 9 to nothing that Obama’s take on what constitutes his job violates the separation of powers.

The Democratic line on the House lawsuit thus far has been to mock and deride it, because mockery and derision is the final refuge of those who are insecure in the merits of their arguments. But even those predisposed to oppose the president’s executive overreach see the lawsuit as a dubious exercise by the House GOP leadership aimed at keeping an unruly conference in line.

We shall see. For now, enjoy the DNC chairwoman’s vote of no confidence in the leader of her party and the nation’s chief executive. It’s only a joke until it’s no longer a laughing matter.

“IN TODAY’S WALL STREET JOURNAL, David Rivkin, Jr. and Elizabeth Price Foley: The Case for Suing the President: Rewriting ObamaCare laws on the fly is a violation of the constitutionally mandated separation of powers.

‘So sue me” is President Obama’s message to Congress. And on Wednesday the House of Representatives took up his taunt, authorizing a lawsuit to challenge the president’s failure to faithfully execute provisions of the Affordable Care Act as passed by Congress. The House lawsuit is no “stunt,” as Mr. Obama has characterized it. The lawsuit is necessary to protect the Constitution’s separation of powers, a core means of protecting individual liberty. Without a judicial check on unbounded executive power to suspend the law, this president and all who follow him will have a powerful new weapon to destroy political accountability and democracy itself.

Article I of the Constitution vests all legislative power in Congress. Article II imposes a duty on the president to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” When a law is unambiguous, the president cannot rewrite it to suit his own preferences. “The power of executing the laws,” as the Supreme Court emphasized in June in Utility Air Regulatory Group v. EPA, “does not include a power to revise clear statutory terms that turn out not to work in practice.” If a law has defects, fixing them is Congress’s business.

These barriers between the branches are not formalities—they were designed to prevent the accumulation of excessive power in one branch. As the Supreme Court explained in New York v. United States (1992), the “Constitution protects us from our own best intentions: It divides power among sovereigns and among branches of government precisely so that we may resist the temptation to concentrate power in one location as an expedient solution to the crisis of the day.”

The barriers also reflect the Framers’ belief that some powers are better suited for a particular branch of government because of its institutional characteristics.

Yep. And, relatedly, the Wall Street Journal editorializes: So Sue Him: Forget impeachment. The House lawsuit is the real threat to Obama.

The House challenge involves crucial questions about the architecture of American government and the separation of powers—questions that haven’t been joined in this kind of challenge at the courts. Mr. Boehner contends that Mr. Obama’s habit of amending or suspending (not enforcing) statutes that conflict with his political goals have usurped “all legislative powers herein granted” by Article I to Congress. . . .

The Supreme Court has already responded when this President’s law-breaking has been challenged by private parties. This past term the Supreme Court rebuked the White House for its unilateral overreach in appointment powers (Noel Canning), unlawfully rewriting the Clean Air Act (Utility Air Regulatory Group) and infringing on religious freedom (Hobby Lobby). . . .

Yet Mr. Obama’s claim that he can pick and choose which laws to enforce is far more offensive to the American tradition than anything the government has done in the name of antiterrorism. The House challenge is an opportunity to vindicate the genius of the Framers to prevent the exercise of arbitrary and centralized power.

Stay tuned….” – Glenn Reynolds

Rational Thought on July 31, 2014 at 10:30 AM

because mockery and derision is the final refuge of those who are insecure in the merits of their arguments.

No Noah, mockery and derision play multiple roles in any discussion. For instance, when any individuals cast forth a supposition so utterly devoid of intellectual content, that addressing it as an actual argument, rather than mocking or ridiculing it as the vapid diatribe it actually is, would grant said supposition legitimacy that it does not deserve.

Such suppositions for example include the following;

There was no Holocaust.

The US Moon landing was a Hoax.

9/11 was an inside job.

Nibiru is real and the US Government is really secretly run by Anunnaki Aliens Space Nazi’s.

To engage suppositions such as these with thoughtful intellectual discourse confers to these absurd suppositions veracity and legitimacy they neither posses, nor deserve.

Are there individuals who attempt to treat genuine legitimate concerns was though they were deserving of such scorn and derision? Absolutely, to suggest otherwise is to fall for the primitive causality logic fallacy, when the converse in actually the truth, lack of evidence is not evidence of a lack.

Leave the “True Scotsman” fallacy alone, back up and punt. You just aren’t as bright as you think you are Noah.

The entire premise of Schultz’s comment is fatally flawed in that it isn’t that he has done his job less often, Obama has never done his job. He has never been the president of this nation; he has been on the campaign trail, at fund raisers, on vacation or on the golf course but he has never “done the job” required of his office and that is to lead this nation.

The left is in a real snit because they put all their marbles on a Marxist-Socialist loser to ring in their utopian agenda and he not only failed, he failed miserably. Now, the reality of their utopian rhetoric has been revealed for the absolute lie that it is. But it’s George Bush’s fault … or something.

“The King’s mornings
7.30-8 am “Sire, it is time”, the first Valet de Chambre awakens the King. The First Levee begins. Doctors, familiars and a few favourites who enjoyed the privilege of the Grand Entries followed in succession into the bedchamber of the King who was washed, combed and shaved (every other day). The officers of the Chamber and the Wardrobe then entered for the Grand Levee during which the King was dressed and breakfasted on a bowl of broth. Only the most important personalities in the kingdom were admitted to observe this ritual. The number of attendants is estimated at around a hundred, all male.

10 am:As they left the King’s apartment, a procession formed in the Hall of Mirrors. Followed by his courtiers, the King crossed the whole breadth of the Grand Apartment. This was the moment when the crowd gathered along the passage of the royal cortège was at last able to catch a glimpse of the monarch. Some were even able to speak to him briefly or pass him a written request. The King sat in the tribune of the Royal Chapel to attend mass, for about thirty minutes. The choir of the “Chapel Music”, renowned throughout Europe, sang a new work each day, composed by Lully, Delalande and many others.

11 am: Back in his Apartment, the King held council in his cabinet. On Sundays and Wednesdays was the Council of State, Tuesdays and Saturdays were devoted to the Royal Council of Finances, and finally, on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays there might be an extra Council of State to replace a Dispatch Council (domestic affairs) or a Religious Council (religious affairs). On these same days, the King might also decide to examine the progress of the building programmes. Five or six ministers worked with the monarch who spoke little, listened much and then made his decision.

1 pm: In his bedchamber, the King dined alone, sitting at a table facing the windows. This meal was in principle a private one but Louis XIV used to receive all the men of the Court, in general those present at the Levee.

His afternoons
2 pm: The King gave his orders announcing his intentions for the afternoon in the morning. If he wished for a promenade, it was in the gardens, either on foot or in a carriage with the ladies. If he chose to hunt, the favourite sport of all the Bourbons, it took place in the grounds when the King preferred to shoot, or in the surrounding woodland when he rode to hounds.

6 pm: Often Louis XIV let his son preside over the indoor entertainments, like the evenings in the apartments. Meanwhile, he would sign the many letters prepared by his secretary and then go to the apartments of Madame de Maintenon where he would study an important dossier aided by one of his four secretaries of State.

The evenings
10 pm: The crowd squeezed into the antechamber of the King’s apartments to attend the Grand Public Supper. The King would sit at the table, surrounded by members of the royal family. At the end of the meal, the monarch walked through his bedroom and into the salon to salute the ladies of the court. Then he withdrew to his cabinet to converse more freely with his family and a few close acquaintances.

11:30 pm: The retiring, a public ceremonial where the King withdrew to his bedroom, was a shortened version of the Levee.

Louis XIV, l’homme et le roi, le site de l’exposition ”

The two key points here is that Debbie’s oral diarrhea isn’t far behind Uncle Joe’s. And she is (was?) the DNC head. Pretty sad. Secondly, as others mentioned, Barry is signing fewer pieces of legislation than any other president in part because the Republicans aren’t giving him carte blanche, but primarily because the Community Organizer in Chief has no clue as to how Washington works, no inclination to learn , and absolutely no desire to put in any hard work or heavy lifting to get legislation through by getting down in the trenches with members of both parties.

I’ve suggested it before, but I’d love to see Ed and Allah have a weekly lottery for our (D)s to enter, and the winner would get to write the commentary on a headline of Ed/AP’s choosing.
 
They would have an almost unlimited opportunity to make and defend their points.
 
Most wouldn’t after they saw what happened to the first couple who tried, of course, so there would need to make some sort of repercussions if they backed out after entering. Banning no-shows would probably be the only solution, frankly, because you wouldn’t want a bunch of entries and then no winner willing to write anything about women being paid less in the White House or civilians being killed in drone attacks or how only three million uninsured people bought insurance because of Obamacare.

Of course, what this neo-bolshevik tool named Schultz knows, but fails to acknowledge, is it’s not the quantity of ‘pens & phones’ Barry uses, but the lawless policy objectives he selectively hopes to accomplish.

I found the stuff he posted on twitter quite amusing. Apparently we (who comment at hot-air) have quite a reputation among our betters (the writers ;-).

Noah does not seem to be smart enough to realize that the commenters here are not entirely morons.

I expect he will be promoted … next gig probably the NYT where he will be feted as an enlightened conservative … but really serve as a useful idiot like David Brooks.

This. An unseasoned young whippersnapper posing as a constitutionalist conservative when all he is is a republican. Go team Red! Meh.

Interesting, I could see that.
He left Mediaite, but Mediaite didn’t leave him.
