In a provocative move, President Obama Wednesday re-nominated two controversial Democratic candidates to the National Labor Relations Board just weeks after a federal court invalided their recess appointments to the posts.

Mr. Obama again nominated Sharon Block, a former Democratic Labor Department official, and Richard Griffin, a Democratic union lawyer, to serve on the NLRB

Looks like the Illegal has cold feet about the constitutionality of those "recess" appointments that the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down.

This is a totally “in your face” move by the adolescent punk, like his signature finger on the side of the head. He’s just daring the GOP to refuse these picks again. Unfortunately, the GOP will cave.

That’ll work.

After all, the last Republican cojone was seen bouncing down a DC street after it was lost by the remaining republican who actually might have thought that - at one time - he just might raise a voice in heightened concern about the latest Obamadork idiocy.

The cojone was not recognized as such, as it was mistaken for a bb.

Looks like a good opportunity for all the Repubs to prove that they haven’t been castrated.

Of course it was expected....they will be Confirmed easily, with RINO's and Democrats (aka, "The One-Party System") blessing The Mulatto Messiah's UN-CONSTITUTIONAL ACTIONS, just like his Executive Orders, which make Congress USELESS.

His NEXT moves will ALL come either by votes of RINO's and Democrats (look at the traitor John "I served in Viet Nam" Kerry being rewarded with an Appointment) in favor of Amnesty, Global Warming handouts to friends and supporters' companies (continuing the "Solyndra" way), and MORE spending of monies we don't even have in our lifetimes as Taxpayers.

Has the in-the-toilet economy been felt by his Constituency? Have EBT amounts been reduced? Have WIC payments been reduced? Have Federal SEIU jobs gotten salary or Benefit reductions? Have "Housing Assistance" payments been reduced? Have Obamaphone Service been stopped?

Hell NO! We can't cut the excess vote-buying spending that has been put in place, and only those with ANY income left will fund Obamacare for the "poor", instead of making them work on Public Works jobs to EARN their welfare payments.

We are so screwed....pray that nothing happens to Justices Scalia and/or Thomas. We'll NEVER get another Conservative/Constitutional-supporting Justice Appointment again, EVER.

“Looks like a good opportunity for all the Repubs to prove that they haven’t been castrated.”

What it probably will turn out to be, is yet one more opportunity to demonstrate that they already have been!
