To the 95 Republican members of the House who sent President Obama a letter stating that Susan Rice is not fit to be Secretary of State, a primer.

Repeat three times, Barack Obama is president. Go on, say it. Next, pull out your pocket Constitutions, you know, the ones you like to misquote when spouting your ideology. Look carefully at Articles I and II, and you will find that the president shall appoint his cabinet advisers as he sees fit, and they shall be confirmed (only) by the Senate.

Move along to Political Science 101. Our long standing tradition is for the executive to take the lead in foreign relations, advised by the Senate which is responsible for approving treaties with foreign governments. That’s why we don’t like it when House members with two-year terms get involved out of their depth.

Now, get back to work creating those jobs every last one of you promised the voters in your districts, and butt out where you do not belong!
