It has been suggested the adoption of his kids would be questioned and he could lose them. Robert’s children are adopted. Have no idea if this is true or not, but that is the rumor.
The Supreme Court needs to buy a clue. The intent of presidential recess appointments was not to do an end around the confirmation process. It was to enable presidents to fill critical positions when congress was not reasonably available, as in days when travel was extremely time consuming.
In modern times, there is NO parallel requiring recess appointment power at all. If anything, the Senate has used an anti-constitutional rule itself to bring about any problem with appointments....the filibuster. The word is no place in the US Constitution. If anything, it is a cute by half amending of the Constitution that actually ruins the proper functioning of the government.
Are you going to acknowledge any of the replies to your post?
Well... see number 17
