Skip to comments.The limits of the recess appointment power
Posted on 07/09/2010 6:29:09 AM PDT by Military family member
Article II § 2 of the Constitution authorizes the President "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." On the 26th of last month, the Senate entered recess, see 156 Cong. Rec. S2180 (2010), and the following day, President Obama announced fifteen recess appointments. This essay will explain why I don't think those appointments are valid, and why circuit-level caselaw to the contrary is unpersuasive.

There are no spine, guts, nor gonads within this Congress. In my opinion, 99% of these vermin are not worthy of licking our troops boots. The current Regime and the human waste within this Congress disgrace our forefathers and our parents and grandparents. Their God, if they have one, will judge them and find them traitors to their country.
Be interested to know how often recess appointments are done when the President’s party also controls both the House & Senate. Seems that would be well out of the norm, and indicate an appointee that is well outside the mainstream.
We The People are being forced to suck up the whims of a dictator via the aid and collusion of his Gestapo in Congress, in my opinion. What’s your opinion? The enemies within are out to destroy our country and steal our freedom in the name of their God, all-consuming power over the masses.

Outside the mainstream?
Every one of Obama’s appointments, including the czars are one or all of the following:
3) domestic terrorist, or sympathizer to same
4) Voter fraud experts.
5) rabid environmentalist wacko
We The People must demand that the feces in Congress reverse these dictatorial appointments of more enemies within. Ya think it’s more and more like Chavez reborn in our White House or Hitler rising from the grave?
BUMP IT BIG!!!

Interesting you brought both up. I believe Obama is both of these, depending on the subject at hand.
