I was watching a cross section of the confirmation hearings in the U.S. Senate of Trump cabinet nominees. One consistent theme across nearly all the hearings I watched was the Democrats repeated concerns that Trump cabinet officers enforce the law as written and not allow Trump to act unilaterally.
Funny, since Obama declared he had a "pen and a phone" and would go around Congress repeatedly and ignore the law that Democrats were entirely, or nearly so, silent when he did.
Ted Cruz remembers. Here he is in hearings for Jeff Sessions to be Attorney General:
It's great to see Democrats suddenly discover the rule of law and the balance created by the U.S. Constitution. But since they made such a mockery of that for the last eight years a number of dangerous precedents have been set. They have only themselves to blame if Trump decides to "pull an Obama."
