Do we like this in the long term? If this was done before Bush’s Administration, we would not have had John Bolton during the Bush years. We will not have a Democratic President forever. Don’t we want the Republican President to have this process in case the Democrats block nominees like they did with Bush? What am I missing here?

Wasn't this the non-recess, recess appointment? Didn't they deliberately stay in session and he appointed anyway?

No, we don’t want any president to act unconstitutionally. It’s called “the rule of law.”

You are missing that the Senate was in pro-forma recess to prevent recess appointments ... Obama wanted to appoint so HE, in his “I am Dictator and will do what I want” mode said they weren’t in recess and appointed anyway. In other words, he gave the Senate the finger (or worse) and did what he wanted, regardless of the rules/law/whatever. Like he usually does ... uses the Constitution for WH toilet paper, ignores laws he doesn’t like, makes up stuff he does like.
