Even Democratic Sen. Max Baucus says he is “troubled” by the recess appointment of Donald Berwick to head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services:
“I’m troubled that, rather than going through the standard nomination process, Dr. Berwick was recess appointed. Senate confirmation of presidential appointees is an essential process prescribed by the Constitution that serves as a check on executive power and protects Montanans and all Americans by ensuring that crucial questions are asked of the nominee – and answered.
Among the statements that Berwick will not have to answer for: “Cynics beware, I am romantic about the (British) National Health Service; I love it.”
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
