Here's what Obama built:
Job losses were cut by more than 50% within his first 4 months in office.
He saved the American auto industry.
Has cut our deficits by more than half.
Interest rates at record lows.
Housing market rebounding.
Inflation low.
Led us out of Bush recession.
Presided over record breaking stock levels (with the Dow just recently closing over 17,000 for the first time in its 118-year history).
Reduced unemployment from 10% to 6.1%.
We just saw the fastest first quarter of job growth in the United States since 1999.
The quickest drop in unemployment in 30 years.
52 straight months of private sector job growth.
9.7 million private sector jobs created.

you somehow think it always works for you. why not for me?
next thing you know i'll be asking you questions i can't answer.
So, you have fallen so far that you call using a nonpartisan source a nut job tactic.

You need to slow down and attempt to make logic responses

Political Hypocrisy On Recess Appointments Is Predictable; Media Hypocrisy, Indefensible
The reality, of course, is that no matter what one thinks of Presidential recess appointments, these days they are often a clear and unambiguous effort to circumvent the Constitutional requirement of Senate approval. From John Bolton and William H. Pryor Jr. under President Bush to Richard F. Griffin Jr. and Richard Cordray under President Obama, the appointments were made while the Senate was on a break (officially or not is the subject of dispute), and as a result of the controversy surrounding the candidates, not on some urgent need to move forward with the appointment. It is clearly being used as a Constitutional end run.
http://www.mediaite.com/online/political-hypo...
yes, they are repeats.
Do you know what is wrong with your opinion piece? Other than it really doesn't fully support you.

SCOTUS did not rule against recess appointments

SCOTUS ruled against Obama making appointments while the Senate was in session and no, this was not a tradition used by other Presidents

Obama came into office "with a $1.3 trillion deficit before I had passed any law.... We came in with $8 trillion worth of debt over the next decade."

Obama's numbers are fairly solid, so we rate his statement Mostly True.
