    Don't forget about recess appointments when Congress wasn't in recess.

    Obama's recess appointments were far lees than the previous 28 years of POTUS.
    More TEAparty nonsense.

    Why would you compare 5 years with 28 years?

    Did any other POTUS do recess appointments while Congress was NOT in recess?

    Absolutely, and at a far greater rate.
    And politics weren't nearly as dysfunctional
    with the past 4 admins' Congresses as they are now.

    There only one of the three that comes close to being a scandal and that's the one about the IRS. It will be tough to shake because almost everyone hates the IRS.

    They were in recess. They were conducting no actual legislative business whatsoever. They just staged a fake session with the express goal of blocking a power specifically granted to the president by the US constitution. A real libertarian should be sickened by such a blatant exploitation of a loophole to defy the intent of the constitution.

    If the IRS really has been targeting conservative groups, there is no question in my mind that the IRS scandal is the worst. Whether or not President Obama or his staff was involved remains to be seen. If you've ever been audited or know anyone who has, you know that your life is turned upside-down. With a number of the organizations, it's my understanding they requested donor lists.

    Imagine. You donated $1,000 to the Republican Party. And it triggers a full-blown audit. Dirty politics at its very best. And scary.

    Edit: A leader sets the tone. That tone is either a hard black line or a grey blurry one. Which one do you think Obama drew?

    Recess appointments are a loophole in the first place, and they usually violate the intent of the Constitution. According to the courts, Obama took it a step further and violated the text of the Constitution.
