Is constitutional enforcement constitutional?

I have heard people say that nullification and interposition (which are the basis of constitutional enforcement) are nowhere to be found in the Constitution.  What do you say to that?

A:

Under the Tenth Amendment and the structure of the Constitution, if a power is not delegated to the federal government in the Constitution, that power is reserved to the states respectively.  Since nullification and interposition are not delegated to the federal government, nor are the states prohibited from doing so, the states retain the power of nullification and interposition.
