Eric Holder can’t explain the constitutional basis of President Obama’s stated plan to get around Congress by issuing executive orders.

Attorney General Eric Holder couldn’t explain the constitutional basis for executive orders such as President Obama’s delay of the employer mandate because he hasn’t read the legal analysis — or at least, hasn’t seen it in a long time.

“I’ll be honest with you, I have not seen — I don’t remember looking at or having seen the analysis in some time, so I’m not sure where along the spectrum that would come,” Holder replied when Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, asked him to explain the nature of Obama’s constitutional power to delay the mandate.

Oh, well, cut the man some slack, dude! After all, he’s only the Attorney General of the United States. Mere trivialities such as the constitutionality of his boss’s executive orders are obviously beyond his pay grade.

No need to explain. Just look.

And listen.
