He must have been missing in action – again.
The Supreme Court of the U.S. just ruled that the President’s power to fill high level vacancies with temporary appointments is not legal. The lawsuit resulted from Obama’s appointment of a man to the National Labor Relations Board in 2012 despite the fact that the Senate was in session and were the proper people to vote on the appointment. As is common, Obama tried an end around and was sued by the Senate Republicans for his schemes. He has now been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.
Tom Udall has made no comments about the entire affair and he was in the Senate when the appointment was made, when Republicans complained about the appointment, when the opposing party filed lawsuits against this violation of Constitutional directives.
Tom Udall doesn’t care about right and wrong. He does care about his party being right and the opposing party always being painted wrong. Tom Udall votes with his party 97% of the time and votes with his President 97% of the time.
The only thing bad about this is that a wrong is a wrong. Obama was told what he was doing was wrong and proceeded anyway. Tom Udall knew it was wrong and said nothing.
When a Congressman or woman keeps quiet when the Constitution is being broken it is time for them to be retired.
When Tom Udall doesn’t stand up for the Constitution, even if his own party is breaking its rules, he needs a slap on the face to wake him up.
If the Constitution is not the law of the land then we are in real trouble. We don’t want Tom Udall changing the Constitution. He is a party animal, not a protector of the law.
