    Even Obama's appointees disagree with you. This was a unanimous decision. When the Congress is or isn't in session, isn't subject to the opinion of the POTUS.

    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.


    Mornin' Beaudreaux. This is what the Hammer had to say yesterday.


    Krauthammer: If Obama Were a Republican, He'd Be Impeached By Now.....


    Yesterday the Supreme Court unanimously ruled against President Obama's NLRB appointment power grab. Last night Charles Krathammer called Obama's disregard for separation of power, Congress and the constitution "arrogant," and suggested if he was a Republican, he'd be impeached by now.

    "He doesn't care about the constitution," Krauthammer said. "He got really smacked down."

    Krauthammer stressed that the NLRB decision by SCOTUS is important because it bleeds into other issues and backs up Speaker Boehner's lawsuit against the President for repeated government overreach.....snip~

    Yes, it's legal, and in a way, it IS in the Constitution... Article One, Section 5, Clause 2: Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.

    I still think the filibuster stinks.

    The green part above, is what I've been saying since this ruling came down.

    I don't like it that much either, however, I can support it for the sole reason that it demands the voice of the minority to be heard and recognized by the majority regardless of which party is in the majority. In other words, without it, the majority would walk right over the minority and have no check to their power at all.

    Understood. To me, the filibuster should be a tool of last resort, not business as usual. Not really my area of politics, though. I'm just a surface-skimmer.

    Well with Boehner's lawsuit.....which all know would take years. They will only have 3 options left. Censure.....Impeach.....Do Nothing!

    Others are seeing how he has placed himself over the Constitution and the Country.
