Not in a subtle way. Not in a questionable way. Blatently, wilfully, and wantonly. Obama makes 3 NLRB recess appointments. What’s the problem? The Senate is still in session.
Here’s what the constitution says:
The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.
During the Recess of the Senate. The Senate is not in recess. Obama knows this. The world knows this. He’s just decided that, uh, they aren’t in session enough for him.
It’s just a formality. You know what else is just a formality? The president signing a bill. Does Congress get to decide if he’s signed a bill enough? It’s just a formality, right?
He’s allegedly a fucking constitutional scholar. This one isn’t a hard constitutional question. This isn’t a Jeopardy level question. This isn’t even a Who Wants to Be a Millionaire question. This is a Double Dare level question.
He knows the answer. He knows it is illegal. He just doesn’t give a fuck.
He’s an oathbreaker. Does this sound familiar?
“I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Remember when you said that? I guess you might as well wipe your ass with that, too, since it’s also from that inconvenient constitution.
Bright shining lines are getting very, very close. This one better go to the SCOTUS quickly, and there better be a resounding, loud benchslap, or things are going to get very ugly.
Just when I am thinking that I can’t vote for a clown like Santorum or Romenycare, this criminal pulls another stunt like this.
