    Democrat NLRB ‘recess’ appointments rushed, don’t appear on White House nominee list

    Democrat NLRB 'Recess" Appointments Rushed. Don't Appear on White House Nomineee List

    The two Democrats that President Barack Obama appointed to the National Labor Relations Board during what he considered a congressional “recess” are not on the White House’s official list of Obama’s appointments and nominations for various positions.
    Obama referred his two Democratic nominees, Sharon Block and Richard Griffin, to the Senate on Dec. 15. The Senate adjourned for the year – but did not go into an official recess — on the following day.
    WhiteHouse.gov tracks the status of all of Obama’s appointments and nominations. Block and Griffin do not appear on that list — a sign that the administration rushed the recess appointments through too quickly for the Senate to even consider them.

    Who needs "advise and consent" anyway. Just be the dictator, and appoint whomever you want.

    It just keeps getting better.

    Wyoming Republican Sen. Mike Enzi’s office has pointed out that Block and Griffin were referred to the Senate so quickly that they didn’t pass basic criminal and civil background checks. A statement from Enzi, the ranking member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, said that the background checks ensure that no criminal investigations are pending against potential nominees, and that they have paid their income taxes. The checks also ensure nominees don’t have conflicts of interest.

    The other one seems to have largely turned into a thread concerning CFPB, so I think this is appropriate.

    What's the matter? Don't want to talk about this one?

    The GOP has put Congress into virtual permanent session for all 2011, to prevent Obama from making any Recess appointments.

    when you play that game, don't cry when someone plays a better hand.

    Plays a better hand ? LOL ..... when you play as this in a real poker game in the Wild Wild West, you get shot for cheating.

    The GOP followed the rules. Liberals whine because they disagree with the motive. But they followed the rules.

    Here, Obama does not follow the rules. To Hell with oversight. To hell with checking these folks out. And to hell with the same process he endorsed as a Senator. The jackass just put two folks on the NLRB via his own whim. Completely bypassed the Senate. Completely ignored the Constitution.

    And the libs cheer.

    where does it say filibustering ALL nominations can be used to prevent an entire federal agency from functioning?
