    I though Obama studied law at some point.

    Leftists, liberals and Democrats do not care if it is legal or illegal. They want Obama to show some fight! Even if it is on an issue nobody gives a shit about. He's been such a disappointment for liberals, they'll take anything- even if it's illegal.

    Obama does one thing well- campaign. With this appointment, he's officially kicked his campaign off....

    This bill provides that the individual consumer may no longer sue a financial institution. Their sole remedy is to file a complaint with this agency.

    It's the loss of freedom that the liberals like so much.

    Nah, the minority does not say when the Senate is in session, and the President has the authority to make a recess appointment. The courts will rule for the president on this one.

    The Senate was not in recess. If you want to argue that the president has the power to dictate when the senate is in recess and when it's not, that's a different story.

    If the Dems in power in the Senate says it was in recess, the minority cannot overrule it. Minority interp does not rule in this case. The courts will rule for the Dems. Republicans have many other problems without fighting a losing one like this.

    In order for the Senate to go in recess the House must recess. No such event occurred. Further in order for the Senate to recess they must meet the stated rules for recess, this did not happen either. The appointment will fail in all but a liberal Judges court.

    And the left is now FIRMLY in the position of stating a President, ANY President may violate the Constitution any time he chooses with no adverse reaction from the people.

    I am not sure you are correct on the procedures for dismissal, particularly the Senate being dependent on the House's rules. You are right a court will decide on it, and I think the court conservative or liberal will back the majority leadership in the Senate and the President.

    Sadly, you have no facts on your side.
