    While I don't agree with Obama doing this, the way the GOP was handling it was truly pathetic.

    Face it, what Obama did was not unconsitutional and it wasn't illegal.
    I'd love to see it. Damned straight! Impeach him. You don't agree with the way Obama did this? Well, Reid did the same damned thing, and Bush respected it. What you have here is a Chicago wanna be thug running the WH and ****ting all over this country...I'll be soooo glad when he's tossed out on his ear.

    Oh BTW, all you demo's...The WaPo editorial page had this nugget for you all to gasp at...

    President Obama’s attempt to unilaterally appoint three people to seats on the National Labor Relations Board and Richard Cordray to head the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (after the Senate blocked action on his nomination) is more than an unconstitutional attempt to circumvent the Senate’s advise-and-consent role. It is a breathtaking violation of the separation of powers and the duty of comity that the executive owes to Congress.

    Yes, some prior recess appointments have been politically unpopular, and a few have even raised legal questions. But never before has a president purported to make a “recess” appointment when the Senate is demonstrably not in recess. That is a constitutional abuse of a high order.

    As a former U.S. attorney general and a former Office of Legal Counsel lawyer who provided advice to presidents on recess appointment issues, we have defended and will continue to defend the lawful use of the recess appointment power. Although originally conceived by the Framers for a time when communicating with and summoning senators back to the Capitol might take weeks, it is still valid in a modern age — but only as long as the Senate is in recess. Not only was the Senate not in recess when these purported appointments were made, it constitutionally could not have been.

    Article I, Section 5, of the Constitution states that neither house of Congress may adjourn for more than three days without the consent of the other house. The House of Representatives did not consent to a Senate recess of more than three days at the end of last year, and so the Senate, consistent with the requirements of the Constitution, must have some sort of session every few days.

    Funny not one of the GOP has the gonads to try and get him impeached, wonder why?

    As I said before, yes, it was a respect thing that was broken (something I think Obama shouldn't have done), but then I don't agree that the GOP was being respectful either.

    Two wrongs don't make it a right. Obama ended this childishness and called the GOP on the BS.

    However, with that being said, noone is going to try to impeach him because it WASN'T ILLEGAL. Just because you don't like it, doesn't make it illegal. And thanks to your clown GOP candidates, as much as I don't like it, Obama will be re-elected for 4 more years and all you will have to blame for that is the GOP for putting up clowns.

    Well, you are probably right in that the repubs don't have the balls to begin impeachment hearings, which they absolutely should on this criminal, doesn't mean that it was legal, or constitutional.

    We'll most likely have to wait til November when Obama and his gangster group are booted out by we the people. How sad, I hope he doesn't screw us up too bad on the way out....Being the pathetic failure he is.

    Again, your OPINION on it being illegal doesn't make it so. That's why noone is calling for impeachment. But please continue your foaming at the mouth rant. It's quite humurous.

    Like making false claims and then moving on to new false claims when they are disproven, like you do?

    Oh Boo freakin' Hoo...Cry me a river...Like you progressive hacks made anything easy on republicans.
    Irrelevant.




    Majority Leader sets the agenda...Good Grief, you lefties all of the sudden forget how things work?
    As AdamT already said its called a senate hold (secret hold)..
    .



    Liebowitz is a satirist, funny at times, but a liberal hack, so why should I care what he says.
    Close mind.




    No, just useful idiots.

    Here's what YOU aren't grasping: realistically speaking, the Senate was in recess. Obama is picking this fight because the courts need to actually make a decision on what "in session" is going to mean regarding executive appointments. We can't have important positions just sit empty because congress feels like exploiting bull**** loopholes for the sole purpose of being obstructionist.

    Also, nice work with the dog whistle "wanna be thug."

    It is impossible to explain why anyone would choose to be a socialist. The one term Marxist president Barack Hussein Obama has Communists, Socialists, Marxists and radicals all over his background. I believe he has been a thug in waiting for a very long time. I am sure he is tough just as I am sure his core beliefs are rooted in the peculiar form of tyranny labeled Marxism.

    Hey, dude, take the tinfoil off your scalp. You could read the news about how all three automakers are profitable now, that should cheer you up. Good thing Obama didn't let the auto companies just die, huh?

    Actually, they were in session. If they weren't then as I have asked repeatedly, with no response, simply show us the where they gaveled to recess. You can't, because they never did.
