I love the smell of burning moonbat in the morning.
Further, while I do not have it in front of me, the exact law that formed this new agency (Dodd-Frank I believe) states that the person appointed must be approved by Congress. Not that it can be a Recess Appointment. That is how it was written and passed.
We have recess appointments occurring when his own party controls the Senate. Maybe he should pick a less controversial appointment if he cant even get it by his own party.
Now if you want to claim its being blocked, debate the nominee, see how that plays out. If it plays out badly, maybe he shouldnt be the nominee.
Lastly, this is all political maneuvering, its being done to provoke a reaction from the GOP so Obama can go radical, blah blah, extreme, blah blah. Its all really transparent. Funny how he can ignore precedent to make a political move that he was against before he was President. Maybe if it was the wrong thing to do before, it should be the wrong thing to do now.
Someone, somewhere is going to sue, per the law, the Chairman or whatever the term is, must be confirmed by the Senate to enact any of his duties. So we will see what happens.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
