Yes... I would recommend using Edit > Copy with Basepoint (COPYBASE) and
then Edit > Paste as block (PASTEBLOCK) prior to insertion while the block
is on te end of your cursor, type in R[enter] and then either type in an
angle or in your case select two points which match the desired angle and
then complete the PASTEBLOCK.

Note: I am not a fan of Copy/Paste or COPYBLOCK/PASTEBLOCK but if you do use
these methods or commands, be aware of your layering and block naming (as in
the above situation I would reccomend renaming the block to something other
than the "A$C2BE5329B" type name AutoCAD assigns to such objects.

Also, if the objects are already blocks I would use DesignCenter to
copy/insert them (the R trick works) or since they are blocks then you can
use the COPYBASE/PASEBLOCK and then EXPLODE that funky named blok back to
it's original name, but still watch your layers/linetypes/text styles,

Hope this helps.
