Man, these guys are coming up with some winners lately.
They rejected a tighter, constitutional interpretation of the recess appointment power of the president by a 5-4 vote.
The constitution actually says that the president has the power to make recess appointments for vacancies that occur during the recess. The justices rejected the clear wording of the constitution’s grammar in favor of a reading that says “the president can make appointments during the recess for vacancies that have occurred.”
They also reject the less clear reading of the Constitution that there is only one annual recess of the Senate.
*Section. 2. The Congress shall assemble at least once in every year, and such meeting shall begin at noon on the 3d day of January, unless they shall by law appoint a different day.**
***Section 5. Neither House, during the Session of Congress, shall, without the Consent of the other, adjourn for more than three days, nor to any other Place than that in which the two Houses shall be sitting. ***
This is the reason a Boehner lawsuit is not a bad idea. The court has had enough of obammy. He has offended them as well, and they would work with a lawsuit. Harry Reid will never let obammy be impeached and removed... but the court may find him guilty of crimes.
