    Re: Supreme Court rules against Obama over appointment power

    Time of the year is not relevant, nice try, but like your messiah a failure.

    Give the Republicans credit. You call them obstructionist and fail to realize the electorate you hate so much chose them
    to obstruct. They improvised, stayed in town, kept the hall open, and did not recess so the dictator could not dictate
    and got b.slapped by the supremes for trying to ignore the law - just like dictators and fascist do. WELL DONE
    Senate Republicans - they don't get much right but they NAILED this one.

    And as we've seen with our messiah--another of your words calgun--what has happened in the past no longer applies to Mr. Obama.

    The Senate/House are now forever open as will be true with this August recess,
    costing the taxpayer dearly as with other GOP wastes such as dozens of faux committees.

    Time for BHO to sue right back at ya, since he's receiving zero from the Greedy Obstructionist Party

    Sorry to disappoint you but there's no constitutional basis for "Seasonal" or "Time-frame" appointments. There's a constitutional basis for RECESS appointments.

    There was no recess.

    The executive does not have the power to declare "recess"

    I know you BADLY want to excuse CLEAR AND UNQUESTIONED unconstitutional action on the part of the politician you support and advocate for but your attempts are failing to do so badly. Do you know why? Because there's no excusing unconstitutional action such as this.

    Whine, bitch, complain, and distort all you want....none of it changes that Obama did something wholly and completely unconstitutional. REGARDLESS of what the Republicans did it was ENTIRELY Barack Obama's decision to do the act that violated the constitution. The Republicans forced him to do nothing. It was his CHOICE to do the violating action.

    No matter how many excuses you want to make, the fact is he acted unconstitutionally and there is not justification for that unconstitutional action.

    Isn't it interesting that statists never seem to know they are?

    If the GOP was doing what they were sent there to do then Congress would have an approval rating higher than 8%

    Yes, the founders certainly did mean the Senate to have those powers whether you like it or not. And yes, the requirement for cloture and super majorities means that a minority in the Senate has the Constitutional power to block votes. It's part and parcel of what having a Senate is all about. And yes, it can be damned inconvenient at times, but that's the lay of the green.

    Sorry, but every one of those representatives and senators was voted in by a majority of their districts. That's the only poll that counts.

    1800 decisions now have to be reviewed. Thanks, Obama.

    In my opinion, this is just the beginning of Obama being taken to task for sidestepping Congress and stepping over and/or on the Constitution by redefining the power of the Executive Branch to meet his political agenda.

    The Constitution matters. And, to put it bluntly, if it ain't in there it ain't legal.
    Is the filibuster legal? It's not in the Constitution.
