This is a demonstration of just how weak and ineffectual those pathetic turds in Congress really are. When the Republicans do nothing but whine as a stupid wimp of a president does as he pleases presents as clear of a case as possible they no longer be paid for doing nothing.

Article 2, Sec 2, 'The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate..,

Why does 'Planet of the Apes' keep popping up in my thoughts?

This is there chance to expose the POTUS, to the ill informed of the public, for what he is ... but I agree, they most likely won't.

RINO's are the modern day tories.

Senators from both parties including Democrats in 2007 and 2008, when Mr. Obama was in the Senate have said it takes a recess of at least three days before the president can use his appointment powers.

And that interpretation is based upon what language found in the COTUS?

Nothing, isn't that right?

So, this is CUSTOM, not COTUS 101.

As the WH Counsel's office spokesman put it, since the Congress is breaking with custom, calling recesses not recesses, the president is breaking with custom as well, or else he would no longer have any recess power left to him even though THAT IS DIRECT LANGUAGE IN THE COTUS.

That is, the Congress in its new strategy is attempting to take away a power of the presidency. Taking away a power of the presidency requires a Constitutional amendment, not just abuse of process daring him to do something about it.

Rather than trying to untie the Gordian knot, Obama used the method of Alexander the Great-- cut through it with a sword-- and met their bluff.

Which was greeted by wailing, gnashing of teeth, rending of garments and so forth. But we've heard them cry wolf too often to be taken in by such bleatings.

As is fairly well known, these appointments end with this Congressional session, unless the Congress decides to hold a hearing and then a vote to decide they are confirmed or not.
