It appears as though the courts agree that Obama acted unconstitutionally in his recess appointments.

Or these. Specifically #4 and #13 because judges rulings are involved. Even the most marginally informed citizen would agree with #6.

Do you have proof of the unconstitutionality of Bush's actions? I mean from a court and not the Boston Globe
It was not the "courts", it was the court of appeals decision for the D.C. Circuit.

A three judge panel consisting of ,

Chief Judge David B. Sentelle -- Reagan appointee
Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson -- Bush 1 appointee
Judge Thomas B. Griffith -- GW Bush appointee

There have been more than 280 intra-session recess appointments dating back to 1867.

The Appeals Court decision is unprecedented, and contradicts 150 years of practice by Democratic and Republican administration alike.

The last I had heard the Appeals Court decision was on appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

I would like to take this time to thank Obama for making me a boat load of money in 2013. The Stock Market soared under his watch and the 1% not only got richer but people like me who are heavily invested in stocks got richer also. I hope 2014 is at least half as good as 2013. Thank you Obama.

Spin it how you wish but there are two legal decisions by actual judges that Obama acted unconstitutionally and a Boston Globe opinion that Bush acted unconstitutionally. Now all of a sudden you are running down the LEGAL appointments of judges in light of the UNCONSTITUTIONAL recess appointments by Obama. If what Bush did was so bad, surly there is a decision of some sort by some judge somewhere that you can reference. Until then, what you are showing is pure hypocrisy and a losers limp. Very unbecoming.

Face it Andy, if proper grammar and lack of typos is what you are seeking, then a Topix thread is not likely where you want to be.

However if you are a conservative/republican who can not stand the truth, lacking any thing positive to defend your own party, so you shoot the messenger,

congratulations, you are right at home!

No spin, just the facts of what happen.

Tell me, if Obama's appointments were unconstitutional

( as written by three Republican Political activist judges attempting to legislate from the bench),

why did it take the court 150 years of by Democratic and Republican administration making recess appointments for them to figure this was unconstitutional?

I still haven't been able to sign up for Obama Care yet. I get nothing but the run around. I am trying t convince all of my family to get on every piece of government assistance known to man that is possible. The way I look at it is I have been paying for all of these benefits I have never used so i's about time I get my monies worth. If you can't beat the welfare queens, join them.

You must be new to this thread. The poster in question very seldom gets a post correct on anything. He always has to repost his meaning, clarify the content of his meaning or respell many words. His alligator mouth always overloads his hummingbird brain. The guy always out runs his msnbc supply lines and always gets caught waiting on their next talking point while being decimated with Conservative facts. He is the best free entertainment you will find anywhere.

Good for you, now you can breathe a sigh of relief that he hasn't succeeded at being a socialist.

They're on record as unconstitutional and others are not so you tell me. To say that there are no liberal political activist in appointed positions (judges and otherwise) is laughable. You just ended up on the wrong side where you have no evidence to prove otherwise and you're just upset about it. Why don't you do what all liberal progressives do and just make up an alternate reality that fits what you want it to. It won't change anything in the real world but you'll feel better in no time.

Mr. Barney is still grasping at straws and trying to make his Twilight Zone world that he lives in, our reality.
He was real good at turning people's words around on them, and confusing the hell out of them until they eventually left, but Mr. Barney can't do that anymore.
Oh, now he still tries, but his own party has betrayed him so much, that poor Mr. Barney has been left looking like a fool. He has defended countless times, only to discover his own party were liars, making him wrong, time and time and time again, looking like a fool.
This is when the typical liberal tactics rear their ugly heads, and we begin hearing that tiresome blame game-Bush, race, rich republicans, global warming, etc.
Mr. Barney, you've provided some real good laughs, and your loyalty to this party of liberal loonies is as admirable as the loyalty seen by the faithful Jim Jones supporters, but even the majority of them realized their folly. Of course, it was too late by the time drinks were being served, but they finally did see the light.
Mr. Barney, you ever going to see the light? Before it's too late, of course?
And speaking of global warming-well, there's just no reason to bring up yet another liberal lie that can't take the heat due to all the frigid cold record setting weather. Maybe those global warming scientists were stuck in the ice in Antarctica too long trying to prove it was melting to realize they were stuck in the ice, and it's not melting, to appreciate the irony in it.
I sure can appreciate the irony! I'm just waiting to find out how this is going to blamed on Bush, or because snow/ice are white, or any of the many more excuses liberals use to blame their failed ideas on!

Well, around here, there weren't any elections being held. Therefore, I did not go vote today. That being said, people have chosen this topix thread to continue discussing politics and enjoying the often thrown slam at the other.
I would think it was pretty self-explanatory, but since you didn't seem to get it, I hope that helps clear it up in some small way. I doubt it, but it might.
I've often found if there is a thread I don't really understand, I simply leave it and never look back. It has never caused me grief or stress to chose this path, instead of demanding others explain or change because of me. The tone of your question suggests you may be looking for confrontation more than an explanation, but may be I read it wrong.

The case has been heard by the Supreme Court, the ruling is expected in late June, then we shall see if the opinion of the Appeals court is a valid one. Until then, your opinion as well as the courts is in limbo, to suggest other wise is simply ignorant.

Where on earth did you get the idea I said , or implied for that matter,

"no liberal political activist in appointed positions"

I have to say, saying that I did, is laughable.

Do you even know what the Republicans were doing at the time, that prompted President Obama to make those appointments?

If you do, how do you defend what they were doing?
