Obama’s flagrantly unconstitutional recess appointments

Obama bypasses Congress and makes an unprecedented move that threatened to ignite “an all-out legislative war with Congress.”

Update: On January 25, 2013, a federal appeals court “overturned President Obama’s controversial recess appointments from last year, ruling he abused his powers and acted when the Senate was not actually in a recess… The judges ruled that the appointments he made to the National Labor Relations Board are illegal… They said Mr. Obama erred when he said he could claim the power to determine when he could make appointments… Allowing the president to define the scope of his own appointments power would eviscerate the Constitution’s separation of powers.”
