    Now, which law did Obama break? Does he not have the power to make Recess Appointments?

    sure he does.

    Please provide for us where in the constitution, or senate rules it says that a nomination of someone to head an agency can not be filibustered. However this thread is about the NLRB hacks that Obama never even put up...He just installed them like a dictator.

    ah yes, moving the goalposts. of course you can filibuster one..or two..three agency head nominees. but to threaten to filibuster ANY and ALL nominees because you want to the agency to not function???????????????? that's an abuse of the filibuster rule.

    ...However this thread is about the NLRB hacks that Obama never even put up...He just installed them like a dictator.

    So it was abuse when demo's did it to Bush?

    and the hyperbole starts.
    What the hell are you talking about? These NLRB hacks were never even background checked because there wasn't time...Obama just installed them.

    when did the Senate Democrats filibuster ALL appointees to a federal agency, thereby seeking to prevent the agency from functioning?

    dude, you have no idea what you're talking about.

    I have already posted over and over, from multiple sources all of these questions you do nothing more than repeat after they have been answered, and sourced. I am done with this dumb ****.

    I am sorry that you consider this to be dumb ****, but the fact is the Democrats NEVER threatened to filibuster ALL appointees to head an agency, thereby trying to hobble the agency into non-functioning.

    Progressive. This thread is about President Obama bypassing the Advise and Consent duty, and prescribed authority, beholden the Senate. Not about the impeachment process and some absurd notion of oversight via such.. The OP (mine) notes that President Obama went from picking who he wanted to then straight appointment, via the powers of Recess Appointments, bypassing the Senate, and the ramifications of such unprecedented action.

    So take the crap to the appropriate thread. Thanks.

    sorry, but the POTUS has the power to make Recess Appointments when Congress is not in session.
