Well, wingnut judges aside, I'm surprised that they don't find the unprecedented amount of bogus filibustering from their rightwing legislators in the Senate unconstitutional as well......oh...wait. Of COURSE they wouldn't - the rightwing doesn't play fair!

and yes, the filibustering bonanza by the usual rightwing obstructors IS unconstitutional and goes well beyond the INTENT of the filibuster.

Another reason why the GOP is dying a slow, nasty death by their own hand. Don't believe me? Check out their favorables - both via Faux Nooz's ratings tank and GOP popularity. Both dropping precipitously.....and why the GOP is lurching towards extreme measures to stay viable, like taking cheating to a whole new level.

Phffffft. Bunch of losers.

You call other people losers; however, you prove, by your posts, that you know nothing about the Constitutional powers under Article 2, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution. He must have the consent to make these appointments.

The recess appointments clause of the U.S. Constitution is limited to intersession recesses, not intra-session adjournments.

The Senate was operating on a unanimous consent agreement (majority democrats, in case you forgot), which provided that the Senate would meet in pro forma sessions every three business days from December 20, 2011, through January 23, 2012.

Therefore, president Ø violated the Constitution, thus making his appointments un-Constitutional.

Learn about the filibuster, it is not un-Constitutional

it is a senate rule, under which the rights of the minority party, and the people they represent, are protected.

When you demonstrate that your knowledge is so sadly lacking, it would probably serve you well to refrain from posting.

What a stupid stupid stupid imbecile you are jessie and because you are so damn stupid YOU ARE FLAGGED!

The DC Circuit Court of Appeals today unanimously slapped down the controversial “recess” appointments President Obama made to the National Labor Relations Board way back in early January of 2012, in what the Associated Press rightly calls an “embarrassing setback.” Indeed, if the Supreme Court upholds the decision, it very well may nullify everything the board has done since the appointments, as it won’t have actually had the quorum of three members required to issue regulations. Ouch.

The unanimous decision is an embarrassing setback for the president, who made the appointments after Senate Republicans spent months blocking...
