You bring up the issue of Supreme Court appointees.
It is an important issue, but we have to remember that Obama has made it now so that he doesn’t need the Senate to approve of his appointees.
All he has to do one weekend is call the Congress recessed, and he can make them any time he wish’s.
The Senate has already validated that act by not forcing the appointments he made durig their last vacation out of office. It does seem strange that the Congress would give up that power and turn it over to the President, but that is how it stands.
Sorry, he can’t do that with Supreme Court justices. No reccess appointment for them.
