Congress, the senate and the Supreme Court have the constitutional authority to rein in Obama. The Senate is not supposed to be Obama's reelection committee, his pretorian guard. The Senate is not supposed to sit quietly when he makes recess apointments which is his way of giving the middle finger to their institution, Republicans and Democrats alike. The President is supposed to fear them, not the other way around. Republicans, of another era, to be sure, helped investigate Nixon, Fred Thompson, a Republican was the one that asked what did Nixon know and when did he know it! It was a Republican that brought to light the Taping Machine in the Oval Office of a Republican President. Do you expect Democrats would ever investigate Obama?

By far the best line from this week's dueling State of the Union messages came from Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. Nice and simple, and right to the point:

"Presidents in both parties -- from John F. Kennedy to Ronald Reagan -- have known that our free-enterprise economy is the source of our middle-class prosperity."

That's a brilliant summary of pro-growth policies, on the supply-side and in a free-market context.

Kennedy slashed tax rates and held down the budget. So did Ronald Reagan, who borrowed Kennedy's ideas: smaller government, lower tax-rate incentives and a thriving middle class, where the economic pie grows ever larger....
