(Warner Todd Huston) – It’s Katie bar the door as the Democrats in the Senate try to push as many liars and Big Labor crooks into positions of power in the Obama Administration as they can before they lose their super majority once Scott Brown of Massachusetts is seated on the 4th of February.
On Monday, the Democrats pushed through the confirmation for Obama’s Solicitor of Labor despite that it has been effectively shown that she lied in her Senate testimony.
Senator Mike Enzi (R, Wyo.) revealed a report that Obama’s appointee as Solicitor of Labor, Patricia Smith, lied several times during her appearance before the Senate’s Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee in May of 2009.
Then on Tuesday, the Democrats with their temporary super majority tried to push through Obama’s nomination of Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Becker is a union-flack and would become the first lawyer employed by unions to take a position that is supposed to investigate and rule for or against unions with an unbiased hand.
Becker is bought and paid for by the SEIU and the AFL-CIO, but is being proposed by Obama for a job that would adjudicate cases brought against those very unions. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a bit alarmed, of course, that such a union flack would ever be given such an important job.
But Democrats understand that if they don’t use their super majority and push through these left-wing sympathizers, union thugs, and ethically impaired appointees they might not get the chance to do so once the Democrat’s overwhelming power is curtailed when Brown comes to town.
Big Labor has already admitted that they intend to use their compliant buddy, Becker, to get their way once he takes his seat at the head of the NLRB, too, but with Brown coming to town Big Labor might find it’s plans on hold.
Fortunately, Senator Brown is expected to be seated February 4th, a week early. The Democrats are quickly running out of time to push through their crooked agenda.
