Congress was in session when President Obama made his appointed of Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau? Really? Let's test that 'theory,' shall we? Was Congress conducting any official business like considering legislation? No! Were there any committee meetings? No! Now, if Congress really had been in session, don't you think that the Republican majority in the House of Representatives would have passed a resolution by now, condemning President Obama's actions? But there hasn't been any vote on that resolution. Neither has there been a vote on any measure at all. In fact, there couldn't be any votes because neither the Senate or the House had a quorum. So, if House and Senate members are all gone except for one or two members, and there's no official legislative business being conducted, and there can't even be a vote in either chamber because there's no quorum, how can the House and Senate be in session? Saying that either the House or the Senate is in session under these circumstances is like a restaurant owner saying that his establishment is open for business even though his doors are locked and there are no employees there and justifying that statement just because the neon sign that blinks "OPEN" is on and visible from the street. It's nonsensical and doesn't pass anyone's idea of what constitutes common sense. The Republicans absolutely should take this to court. My sense is that the PR fiasco will hurt them long before any ruling is made.
