Constitutionally CluelessRep. Michelle Bachman (R-MN) asks Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner what authority he has under the U.S. Constitution for the radical actions he is taking. The look on Sec. Geithner's face is tinged with vintage Obamesque arrogance matched with the deer in the headlights cluelessness that has become a hallmark of Poor Timmy's short tenure at Treasury.
It's as if he doesn't even understand the question. The Constitution? What's that got to do with my plan to seize private property?
And Bachman doesn't let it go at that. See the video here (start at 55 seconds).
Rep. Manzullo Calls Geithner's Power Grab "Radical"
Congressman Don Manzullo (R-IL) grills Geither on the lack of specifics for the radical plan to allow the federal government to seize businesses it deems a risk to the financial health of the U.S. economy (anyone remember the Bolshevick Revolution?)
Rep. Manzullo: "You realize how radical your proposal is...you're talking about seizing private business and if it's a prudent and carefully designed proposal you would have the answers to some of my questions."
Two more GOP Reps who show they aren't afraid to take on the Obamalith!
