Obama’s Lawless Administration

Millions of American sports fans are now caught up in the annual ritual known as March Madness, the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament that crowns the national champion.

The truly committed fill out their own bracket to test their skills at team evaluation. The countdown begins with 68 teams and leads to the championship game on April 7.

Even President Obama filled out a bracket. It was a national event, complete with television coverage. Obama is a committed basketball fan; he plays the game for recreation and follows it closely.

Ben Sasse, the conservative Senate candidate in Nebraska, took a different turn in filling out his bracket. It is not March Madness. It is Constitutional Madness, designed to show Obama’s lawless administration.

“Which is President Obama’s worst constitutional violation?” the bracket says. “Make your picks!”
