Pesky constitutional limitations

David Catron: Nancy Pelosi’s Delusions of Grandeur – “Madam Speaker is a greater threat to democracy than the man she impeached.”

“By presuming to dictate what the president and Senate Majority Leader “must” do, Pelosi is deliberately undermining the checks and balances built into the system by the Framers. The Constitution provides for the separation of powers among the three branches of the government, and none of the three is constitutionally permitted to usurp the prerogatives of the other two. Likewise, each house of Congress has powers that may not be arrogated by the other. All spending legislation must originate in the House, for example, and only the Senate has the power to approve judicial nominations. More to the point, only the Senate possesses the power to conduct an impeachment trial.

Nancy Pelosi has evidently lost patience with such pesky constitutional limitations.

Delusions of something but certainly not grandeur. …
