    Article II, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution: "The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session."

    good luck with that :thup:

    I love how Republicans say Democrats don't follow the constitution, yet get mad when they follow the Constitution.

    Because the Constitution unambiguously gives the Senate the power to regulate its proceedings, Obama’s opinion that the Senate was not in session when it said it was, and his assertion that it was in recess even though it held sessions on Jan. 3 and 6, has no force or relevance. And although he is a serial scofflaw, not even he has asserted the authority to make recess appointments during adjournments of three days or fewer.

    Would it be asking too much to just wait until the court makes its ruling? Anything before then is mere speculation which is nothing more than an excuse to vent.

    No, it's an example of how the fight goes on in the face of an extra Constitutional president.
