Jeb Bush was stumping in New Hampshire this week when he spoke out for presidential power. Not his own, mind you. But the power of whoever’s in office to exercise a degree of autonomy. “I think presidents have the right to pick their team,” Bush said, referencing the fact that President Obama’s choice for Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, hasn’t received a vote from the Senate. Obama nominated Lynch back in November.
Yesterday Obama unsurprisingly agreed with Jeb Bush–perhaps for the last time between now and November 2016. “Enough. Enough,” Obama told reporters during a press conference. “Call Loretta Lynch for a vote, get her confirmed, let her do her job. This is embarrassing,” the president said. Eric Holder remains Attorney General for now.
