L.A. Mayor Villaragosa has the best chance. He is one of the Big Four Democrats who in '99 founded the Devils Partnership between the State Dem Party and the Public Employee Unions which has brought many Calif Cities of every size to the cusp of complete fiscal collapse.

Last January, President Obama did something that every civics class teaches presidents are not allowed to do under our Constitution. Although the Senate was not in recess, he unilaterally “recess-appointed” four officials to executive posts, three of them to the National Labor Relations Board. The move allowed Obama to avoid the constitutionally mandated Senate confirmation process for all four – temporarily, at least.

This wrong was righted on Friday, when a three-judge panel on the D.C. federal appeals court unanimously struck down the three NLRB appointments on constitutional grounds.

The ruling comes as a surprise only to the journalists and editorial writers who framed this story so wrongly in the first place. Instead of recognizing these appointments for what they were – an obvious abuse of power to deliver an easy election-year favor for organized labor– America’s most important newspaper editorial boards praised Obama for his boldness.

For the overwhelmingly Obama-sympathetic Washington press corps, stories about presidential abuses of power became far less interesting the moment Obama took the oath of office in 2009.

When the illegal recess appointments were first reported, the Washington Post editorial board called it “Obama’s justifiable ‘power grab,’” and dismissed concerns about them with a blithe,“But so what?”

For The Los Angeles Times, this clear violation of the constitutional balance of power was “a rational response to an increasingly gridlocked Congress.”

Both papers followed Obama’s line in offering Republican obstructionism as a legitimate excuse for violating the Constitution.

well, at least Dee-troit is in good fiscal shape. I was concerned that once all the honkies moved out, it might deteriorate, but it appears to be doing fine, based on what I just read on yahoo.

Fox news....lol...yeah there's a bastion of unbiased reporting.

Fox news aside, it was easy for the President to mistake the Congress being in recess, they weren't doing anything anyway and acting like little kids.

Surrendering to every whim of Obama without regard for the rule of law is plenty good enough for common street trash.
Not so much for the rest of us.
