Obama’s in a tizzy over Congress inviting Israel’s PM to speak on the Hill…
…but he’s okay with a White House hoe-down hosting the Muslim Brotherhood?
Claiming it hurts his Iran negotiations, Obama slams the Congress invite.
Angry that they see their Appeaser-in-Chief supposedly dissed, some on the Left are actually claiming it’s unconstitutional for the Congress to ask a foreign leader to speak with them, because that activity isn’t specifically accorded.
But the Constitution does specifically state Congress has the power “…to regulate Commerce with foreign nations”; can that be done without talking to those nations?
Furthermore, it mandates Congress is to “…make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.” Which further justifies talking with foreign nations.
‘ALL laws…for carrying into Execution…Powers…in the Government…’
Bottom line? Congress is the direct representative of American citizens: it would be a huge disservice to those citizens if Congress didn’t do their job…constitutionally.
(Besides…we like the way this invitation enrages Liberals.)
