End-around…

Barack Obama is obviously a President who will use the power of the office in the most technical of ways to benefit politically. His minions have already made no secret of the fact his campaign will be an exercise in gutter politics as he targets a Congress with very low approval ratings. But while the POTUS attempts to deflect blame for a nation in crisis, by emphasizing Congressional negatives to an electorate that only dislikes the Senators and Congressmen from “other districts/states”, I will be watching the behind the scenes tactics of this ideological politician as he contemplates recess, or what are known as “adjournment appointments” of those most radical of his cabinet submissions who could not initially generate an up or down vote on Capitol Hill.

It’s always dangerous when a President has failed the leadership test in every way and then attempts the end around game to accomplish that which he could not have otherwise. The implications of these “appointments”, while temporary in nature “if” a new President is subsequently elected, and the damage which could occur in the interim, could be catastrophic. Federal agency policy and application related to everything from the EPA to the newest and ultra-controversial “Consumer Financial Protection Bureau” could be affected in dramatic and consequential ways to “We the People”.

These types of maneuvers have taken place on the watches of past Presidents to be sure, but as I have written, these are extraordinary times. What we allow to go unchecked in 2012 is sure to haunt us far beyond…
