No surprise there. This guy's law degree should be revoked. He doesn't seem to even have a rudimentary understanding of it.

The ruling also threw into question Obama's recess appointment of Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Cordray's appointment, also made on Jan. 4, 2012, has been challenged in a separate case-O'bama can't practice law anymore any way-that happened while he still was in Illinois. His wife hasn't been able to practice law either-after a mere 4 years after graduating. She has to quit.

should we really have 'union' lawyers appointed to do anything for 'we the people'? That should not happen legally, let alone illegally like O'bama did.

What a moron he is, he took an oath to uphold and obey the Constitution and he has gotten that straight in 4 years.

Your article says, "White House press secretary Jay Carney called the ruling “novel and unprecedented,” and said it contradicts 150 years of practice by presidents of both parties."

Summary
Under the Constitution (Article II,§2, clause 2), the President and the Senate share the power to
make appointments to high-level policy-making positions in federal departments, agencies,
boards, and commissions. Generally, the President nominates individuals to these positions, and
the Senate must confirm them before he can appoint them to office. The Constitution also
provides an exception to this process. When the Senate is in recess, the President may make a
temporary appointment, called a recess appointment, to any such position without Senate
approval (Article II,§2, clause 3). This report supplies brief answers to some frequently asked
questions regarding recess appointments. It will be updated as events warrant.

OK ?

I thought you might know who was appointed since you pretend to know so much about the topics you raise. I guess not.

Well the court just ruled against carney and O'bigear's unconstitutional practice and they were very clear in their decision.
This corrupt administration has been on thin ice for 4 years and the ice just broke.
This is only the start.
What anyone else has done in the past doesn't justify this plus the court just halted this move against the Constitution of the United States of America.

“Issues like this — it’s not about protecting the Congress from the president and the president from Congress,” Mr. Francisco said.“The Constitution draws these lines ultimately to limit the government to protect the people.”

In their ruling the judges said their duty is not to speed up the workings of government, but to hold to constitutional principles.

“If some administrative inefficiency results from our construction of the original meaning of the Constitution, that does not empower us to change what the Constitution commands,” the judges wrote.

The judges said the recess power was created for a time when Congress met only a few months out of the year, and was designed for the president to fill vacancies during the long periods when Congress was not meeting. In modern times, when Congress is almost always capable of meeting, the recess powers should be more circumscribed.

In the short term, the ruling invalidates one NLRB decision. But over the longer term it could invalidate a year’s worth of decisions by the independent agency, could undercut Mr. Obama’s new consumer watchdog agency set up in the 2010 Wall Street reform law, and could even call into question decisions made by some judges who were given recess appointments."

Obama doesn't play well with others. He screwed up with his "to hell with the constitution" atttitude and he is caught.
About time.

The Republicans never went into recess. They had the option of taking up the appointments since they were still in session. Obama just decided that congressional review was an inconvenient part of the Constitution so he took it upon himself to usurp the laws of the land.

so you are alright if the law makers go to lunch and the president illegally appoints someone or maybe he just makes up a law while they are home having dinner? cause that is what we are talking here. I don't like the fact that the O'bama thinks he doesn't have to follow the rules. Do you?

That person gave you the link--but here is what it said. Can't open links? you could click on them you know?

Obama appointed Deputy Labor Secretary Sharon Block, union lawyer Richard Griffin and NLRB counsel Terence Flynn to fill vacancies on the NLRB, giving it a full contingent for the first time in more than a year. Block and Griffin are Democrats, while Flynn is a Republican. Flynn stepped down from the board last year.

Obama also appointed Cordray on the same day.

He's drunk on power and all he's doing is pushing it far enough that the libtrash can no longer make excuses for him.
