The fact that the POTUS can only appoint with the advice and consent of the Senate places a duty upon the Senate to offer that advice and consent.
It does not mandate a time frame.

I'm aware of that Tony. But Scalia and the Court applied none of them in Heller. I've posted the relevant potion of the opinion above.

When Heller worked its way back up to the DC Appellate Court on remand, that court applied intermediate scrutiny, not strict, to the challenged gun regulations, which had been modified immediately after the Supreme Court issued its opinion in 2008.

See the bottom of page 23 of the opinion:

From the opinion:
"The power of a written constitution lies in its words. It is those words that were adopted by the people. When those words speak clearly, it is not up to us to depart from their meaning in favor of our own concept of efficiency, convenience, or facilitation of the functions of government."
And...
"We will not do violence to the Constitution by ignoring the Framers’ choice of words."
-- Chief Judge David Sentelle
"...those words speak clearly..." -- it's just the Executive Branch who purposely misconstrued them.

It is you leftists, ignoring history and tradition, who continually attempt to twist the clear text of the Constitution to cater to your whims.

The Constitution remains clear.

"Article II, Section 2:- The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session."

"Article I, Section 5: Neither House, during the Session of Congress, shall, without the Consent of the other, adjourn for more than three days, nor to any other Place than that in which the two Houses shall be sitting."

FACT: Neither the Senate nor the House had passed resolutions obtaining consent for a recess when Obama made his unconstitutional, non-recess appointments.

The End.

Isn't it funny how if a person indicates he believes in man made climate change these people presume that person has an "evironmental killer list?"

If a person believes that Obama was a better candidate than Romney he considers Obama "The Messiah."

If a person believes anti-muslim bigotry is wrong, he is pro bin Laden.

If a person believes we can have reasonable regulation of firearms, he hates the constitution.

If a person believes the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were follies, he isn't an American.

I take that back. It's not funny. It's sad.

One only has to review your posts to understand exactly what untruths you have presented, and exactly what is sad.

I think we are having different discussions. My point is the humor in folks demanding a strict reading of the phrase "shall not be infringed" while at the same time insisting that the phrase "a well regulated militia" has no meaning. All I want is for you to be intellctually consistant.
It has no meaning regarding individual rights. Heller clearly stated that. It is a statement in the government's legitimate interest in citizens being armed. Citizens are free to have their own legitimate interests in being armed. Defining that interest is not what the Constitution was designed to do, so they didn't mention it.

Heller left open the question of which level of scrutiny applied to the Constitutionality analysis of gun regulations:
"Justice Breyer moves on to make a broad jurisprudential point: He criticizes us for declining to establish a level of scrutiny for evaluating Second Amendment restrictions. He proposes, explicitly at least, none of the traditionally expressed levels (strict scrutiny, intermediate scrutiny, rational basis), but rather a judge-empowering “interest-balancing inquiry” that “asks whether the statute burdens a protected interest in a way or to an extent that is out of proportion to the statute’s salutary effects upon other important governmental interests.”
That would seem to fall under the "narrowly tailored" part of strict scrutiny.
