ADVICE AND CONSENT–THE CASE AGAINST THOMAS PEREZ: Frank Gaffney outlines a compelling case against Senate confirmation of Thomas Perez as Labor Secretary:
Mr. Perez is, in short, the poster child of Team Obama’s notorious practice of putting politics over public safety. Before coming to federal office and during his past four years at the Justice Department, he has promoted the radical left’s agendas and those of its allies in Islamist circles. He has done so at the expense of the rights of all Americans to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness safeguarded from all their enemies, foreign and domestic.
Presidents deserve deference on their choice of appointees. But there is an important difference between deference and abdication of duty.
