Skip to comments.Freshman Congressman Leads Charge Against Obama Recess Appointments
Posted on 06/18/2011 1:43:11 PM PDT by La Enchiladita
Freshman Congressman Jeff Landry, R-La., says that President Obama is misusing recess appointments, and he's going to do something about it.
"When the president puts up nominees, they go through the confirmation process, and the senate blocks them or doesn't confirm them, and then he waits for a recess appointment just to appoint those people. He is circumventing the Constitution," said Landry on Fox News Saturday.

I like Landry. Gonna keep an eye on him.
I had not noticed him before, that I can recall, and from what I see here... I like his style. That is no small matter that he got 70 Reps on board with this. I also like the swipe he took at the Senate. Haha.
Unfortunately, Landry drew the short end of the stick on redistricting (especially as a freshman member) and so this will likely be his first and last term for the time being.
Jeff Landry, R-L
Thanks La Enchiladita.
Landry has nothing to lose, so he going for Obama directly...
GOP Freshmen the only ones with Balls.
I like the freshman class
He’s the one that told Obozo to take a hike, when he summoned all of Congress to come to his speech whatever, and said he didn’t need to be chewed on by a failed president! Go Landry!
Keep sticking your finger in the eye of Obozo.
This passage puzzles me:
Who is Lee?
Ok then, show up for work and stop it. It’s not that hard if you think about it.
Good! If I ever had a chance to block a recess appointment, give me a bottled water and the Constitution gets read over and over. I might sprinkle in the Pledge of Allegiance from time to time.
I agree with you and the Congressman. Obama is abusing the recess appointment process. The head of the NLRB is a prime example. This unelected unconfirmed jerk is trying to stop Boeing from providing jobs in another state, which happens to be a right to work state. Those people in that state deserves jobs as well, not just the Union. I like this congressman.
