In one, Congress has prohibited the possession of machine guns. In the other, Congress has directed the EPA to set air-quality standards for air pollutants, with the only instructions being to set those standards that are required to protect the public health. S. Attorney enforcing the machine-gun statute must simply determine whether a suspect actually had possession of a firearm that meets the statute’s definition of a machine gun. There is no need to make law but only to implement a law that Congress wrote.
However, it would eliminate the political maneuvering that has made for a drawn-out and highly partisan judicial selection process. 17 In just his first eighteen months in the Oval Office, Barack Obama had to manage a struggling economy, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Iran’s nuclear threat, continuing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the passage of health care legislation, bills to reform the financial system and respond to global climate change, two Supreme Court nominations, and much more.
Currently, when a president takes an aggressive stance toward another country, the other government can stall talks in the hope that the next election will yield a more favorable partner. When Barack Obama pressured Israel to make concessions to the Palestinians in 2009 – 2010, he may only have encouraged Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to delay the peace process until 2013, when a Republican might become president and take strongly supportive positions of Israel. And in light of George W. Bush’s support for Israel during his eight-year administration, this would have been a sensible strategy for Netanyahu.
