This was done very deliberately. There was a small window in which Obama could have made a legal recess apt. He let it slide by, and then did this SO AS to get in congress’ face. Congress is pathetically unpopular right now and O’s plan is run against them. So he will be picking fight after fight and positioning himself as the champion of the people who gets things done despite the dysfunctional congress.
He should have been challenged on a fundamental level long ago. The Ruling Class Elites in the GOP leadership appeased him instead, and this is their reward. Unfortunately, we, not they, are the ones that will pay the price.
Good points you make. Observant.. and all true.
Choose your battles, and this isn’t it. Unfortunately, we’ll have to let this slide.....and remember what Bubba said back in ‘92? “It’s the Economy, Stupid!” So we have to stay on the message.
