    the Uniter Strikes again.

    Reid is willing to accept the appointment of union-friendly lawyers.
    AP

    President Barack Obama has elected to bypass the Senate and unilaterally install 15 nominees, including the controversial Craig Becker to serve on the National Labor Relations Board, a move sure to infuriate Republicans..

    .

    The decision to install Becker - who was rejected by a GOP filibuster last month - is certain to enflame Republicans opposed to his ties to labor unions. Obama also installed Mark Pearce - another nominee favored by unions - to serve on the board.

    Remind me again what Obama said during his campaign about open, transparent government. And something about cleaning up DC?

    For the record, lots of us disapproved of it from the GOP. We disapprove of it from the Dems.

    How much longer do we have to wait before fools realize that the 'mommy, he did it too' defense is no longer an acceptable justification for crapping on "We, the People"?

    So Bush does it, and the left whines and gnashes teeth.

    Obama does it, and all of a sudden it's "B-b-b-b-but Boooooosh did it tooooo". While Republicans whine about their tactics being used against them.


    Get real, quit excusifying and stop the hypocrisy. Either it's wrong or it's right.

    My view:
    I think that in both cases it is a power that the executive can and should have. Especially considering that the appointees have to go through the whole congressional approval thing next time around. So no big whoop. The only thing that chaps me is the whole "Hopey Changey, most transparent etc. etc. etc.". If you whined and complained about Bush doing it, then you shouldn't do it.

    Hmmm ... Obama carrying on another Bush policy ... what a shock ... not.

    I'm sure the OP was all kinds of up in arms about this back when Bush did it :rolleyes:
