Skip to comments.Court fight over recess appointments 'almost certain,' Chamber says
Posted on 01/04/2012 8:27:51 PM PST by bigbob
The recess appointments President Obama announced Wednesday are almost certain to be challenged in court, according to a top official with the nations largest business lobby.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has not decided whether it will file a legal challenge to the appointments, according to David Hirschmann, who heads the Chambers Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness. But he said hes confident that Obamas precedent-shattering move will land the administration in court.
"We've made no decisions ourselves," Hirschmann told The Hill. "What we do know is ... it's almost certain ultimately a court will decide if what the president did is legal or not."

The CDC should send a team to investigate the quite obvious cluster of low testosterone that affects Republican members of Congress.
The LEGITIMATE articles of impeachment that could be drawn up would make a list a few pages long.
But we all know the RINO GOP are go-along get-along types.
Mark Levin commented that Hussein makes Nixon look like he was a bystander.
The Chamber of Commerce lacks standing.
Don’t hold your breath waiting on Bonehead and the GOP to do
anything about it, except what they always do...use it as a campaign issue.
well, maybe they can at least apply pressure. One more thing for Obama to have to worry about would be fine by me.
This is unconstitutional. The senate was NOT in recess.
Not in recess? Who cares
Exposed: Obama's scheme to czar and fetter U.S. citizens.
Checks and balance work against the people, says President: "Bring it all down, man."
"My typical white Mommy and grandparents told me that the Constitution is bad for the masses," said Obama.
U.S. Chamber of Commerce may challenge appointments
If appointments do not lessen taxpayer-subsidized undocumented "cheap" labor then no problem.
Until YOU understand what and who Hussein is, you can't possibly understand the battle that is going on.
The good guys have decided that to IMPEACH Hussein, they will get the same result they got when they tried to IMPEACH a serial rapist named Clinton. With traitors everywhere you look, they can't get the clown out of office and Hussein knows it.
Hence the big finger to Congress and America.
Why would Hussein openly defy the Constitution and American law? It's because he can AND it's because he thinks it needs to be destroyed. Everything he can get away with.
Did you say ANYTHING when Hussein illegally used the US Military to attack Libya? Does it surprise you that Libyan rebels are RADICAL MUSLIMS?
Hussein was all over attacking Egyptian's government. Does it bother you that the Muslim Brotherhood is likely to win power? Those "peaceful" Muslims who want to destroy Israel? Does it bother you Hussein Obama has a Muslim Brotherhood adviser?
Hussein's obviously unconstitutional health care scheme will destroy even more of the American economy. Intentional or is he so left that he doesn't care?
Hussein wants all the oil America uses to come from overseas. Intentional or leftist?
Hussein wants to shut down coal plants which will destroy the American economy. Intentional or leftist?
You can explain some of Hussein's actions by calling him a Jimmy Carter on steroids leftist idiot but Libya, Egypt, but hostility against Israel does NOT fit.
Who is Hussein?
Are you stupid enough to believe this clown got $Hundreds of Millions from Wall Street?
Are you stupid enough to believe Hussein is a Christian?
Are you stupid enough to believe Hussein is trying to help America?
The MSM is stupid enough to believe all and more that Hussein does and wants to do.
WHO is Husein? WHO supports him?
IF you wanted to destroy America, which would be more effective?
A Pearl Harbor style attack?
Buying a reality style host to play POTUS?
WHO would buy and support Hussein as he destroys America?
The answer to that is obvious too but Americans can no longer think. They consider only what the MSM tells them to consider.
I'll answer one question for you. Is Hussein a Christian? You'd have to be an absolute MORON to think he is.
Here's another easy one: What Nations would support Hussein as he destroys America? If you can't answer that, you really do need to wait for CNN and CBS to tell you the truth about Hussein.
Is it possible a CONSPIRACY so big that it is destroying the country is occurring right in front of you and the MSM, and hence America, don't even recognize it? (They are so stupid that they think Hussein is Jimmy Carter reborn).
The only thing a radical Muslim has to do is empower the radical American left. Heard anything about the EPA recently?
>> The jokes almost write themselves.
I just wonder what psychological disposition will befall the Country once the cynicism is exhausted.
If they get that, they certainly have a good case to file articles of impeachment for that alone
Add to that any misconduct from Fast and Furious, corruption from Solyndra and other shady green energy deals, conflict of interest (Obama was awarded a sweet hart deal on Light Squared stock right after Obama pushed the FTC authorization through) in the attempts to sway a Generals Officers testimony regarding the national security and transportation systems because Light Squared’s interference with GPS signals. To compound the conflict of interest Obama refused to place the LS stock into a blind trust when he took office
Add in a Little rezko and you have a slam dunk case for impeachment. Obama has been a busy busy boy driving our country into the ground
Do something besides talk about it... If all you so is talk and threaten, then the result is it's acceptance. Do something or shut up! We are tired of the talk, time to either take these people on or simply shut up and watch.
Although it is distasteful, I will support the president on narrow separation or power grounds.
He has acted in this instance as a president rather than the head moonbat. The Senate stayed in session by parliamentary procedure and is not actually functioning as normal. The reason is said to be to prevent recess appointments. That is a direct challenge on the power of the president by the Senate.
To counter the maneuver the President made an appointment indicating the senate procedure is a sham and the need for the appointment preempts parliamentary games. That is, he is attempting to protect a presidential prerogative that could be forever eliminated. He had no choice but to act in a counter manner. The action also bought political cover but that is another story.
It is widely viewed here as an unconstitutional act and that appears to be the case to me. The result then becomes a matter for resolution by the court. The actions of an improperly appointed officer will be null and void and all salaries and expenses will be required to be refunded to the treasury.
