I don't think he had any choice but to make the recess appointments. The senate was blocking everybody he nominated. Harry Reid- "In the history of the United States, 168 presidential nominees have been filibustered, 82 blocked under President Obama, 86 blocked under all the other presidents."
SCOTUSblog reports:
This is a narrow ruling. It gives the President substantial recess appointment power. It says the only problem with the appointments was that the President had to respect the Senate's pro forma recesses.-
The issue of recess appointments has receded in importance after the Senate's Democratic majority changed the rules to make it harder for Republicans to block confirmation of most Obama appointees.
Wait till you hear the whining when Democrats lose the Senate and have to live under the rules they created. I hope we get a leader who is as big an azz has Harry Ried , I don't think that is going to be possible

If they get a majority it will probably be 51. May depend entirely on the senate minority leader's race and he was down 4 points last poll. They say more money will be spent on that race than any senate race in history

The economy shrank 2.9%, revised from 1%. That is growth, only negative, right? Is that laserlike focus on jobs and the economy? 6 years of failed policy.

Makes it funny that some of the Obama apoligists are still trying to blame that shrinkage on winter weather.

It's kinda dopey to suggest weather was the cause, but I was kinda proud of them for expanding their horizons and not blaming George Bush for once. I didn't know they had the mental capacity to think outside of the box like that.

Reagan made 240 recess appointments!

The GOP should dig him up and impeach him. Or blow him.

The federal budget deficit has fallen sharply during the past few years, and it is on a path to decline further this year and next year. CBO estimates that under current law, the deficit will total $514 billion in fiscal year 2014, compared with $1.4 trillion in 2009. At that level, this year’s deficit would equal 3.0 percent of the nation’s economic output—close to the average percentage of GDP seen during the past 40 years.

After a frustratingly slow recovery from the severe recession of 2007 to 2009, the economy will grow at a solid pace in 2014 and for the next few years, CBO projects. Real GDP (output adjusted to remove the effects of inflation) is expected to increase by roughly 3 percent between the fourth quarter of 2013 and the fourth quarter of 2014—the largest rise in nearly a decade. Similar annual growth rates are projected through 2017.

So, the rich insiders get richer, crony capitalists. Wall street is not the best single indicator, remember the housing bubble?.com bubble? A shrinking economy does not bode well long term, especially to those without jobs and no multimillion dollar investment portfolio.

No it doesn't, and I agree the stock market doesn't mean that much. It could lose half its value overnight. But things could be much worse. Hopefully GDP growth will improve considerably in the next 2 quarters.

LOL The last quarter the GDP shrank 3% not an increase. Obama has also change the way GDP is calculated so it doesn't look as bad as it real is. No nation calculates GDP the way Obama set it up

This will be the Obama Recession with one more quarter. If it went up 3% that would be zero growth for the first 6 months

Obama wasted all the gains Bush made in Iraq by pulling all troops out and now the same thing again in Afghanistan. We kept troops in Korea, Germany and Japan . King Obama has really made a mess of everything

What has changed in the way they calculate GDP?

If things don't improve I think Republicans will definately get the Senate.
