Court to Obama Admin: Actually, Those Recess Appointments Were Unconstitutional

Decision: " The appointment may be made in “the Recess,” but it ends at the end of the next “Session.” The natural interpretation of the Clause is that the Constitution is noting a difference between “the Recess” and the “Session.” Either the Senate is in session, or it is in the recess. If it has broken for three days within an ongoing session, it is not in “the Recess.” It is universally accepted that “Session” here refers to the usually two or sometimes three sessions per Congress. Therefore, “the Recess” should be taken to mean only times when the Senate is not in one of those sessions."

They were "technical" sessions. No one was actually doing anything. It was done purposely. Or does that not matter?

Manure is organic matter used as organic fertilizer in agriculture. Manures contribute to the fertility of the soil by adding organic matter and nutrients, such as nitrogen, that are trapped by bacteria in the soil. Higher organisms then feed on the fungi and bacteria in a chain of life that comprises the soil food web.

Yoiu realize the Democrats had say in those rules too, right?

Well he tried. Supreme Court will now have to set another precedent with this decision. Its ok, democrats have your playbook and will wield the same power and tactics to block the next Republican presidents nominations. Then you will be whining about how democrats block and filibuster. Goes around comes around

You mean like they did with Bush appointees and came up with the "pro forma sessions" in the first place? Basically, the Republicans are returning the favor to Hapless Harry and the Senate Democrats who initiated this process in the first place.
"What goes around comes around", you dolt.

No it doesn't. According to Shrillery, nothing that happened yesterday matters.

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...
