More on Obama’s “Recess” Appointments

The mainstream snooze media may have little interest in following up on Obama’s willful violation of the Constitution with his non-recess “recess” appointments. But he crossed the line into lawless unconstitutional tyranny. He run roughshod over the Constitution and over Congress. And this must not be allowed to stand.

So follow up is indeed in order.

In a brief but excellent article, Brian Bolduc buttresses the case against Obama’s appointments. He looks at some interesting history and finds that making recess appointments when there was no recess is not the only way Obama violated the Constitution; but that, even if there had been a recess, the appointments are constitutionally questionable.

To raise the temperature a bit, I’ve come across a radio interview of Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY).

The interview and Sen. Barrasso himself has not gotten much notice, and it escaped my attention until this morning. But he goes yard on Obama, calling the appointments clearly unconstitutional and “Chicago-style” politics.

Expect to see more of Sen. Barrasso in the future. He seems unafraid of telling it like it is and acting upon it.

Speaking of action, the lawsuits against Obama’s unconstitutional NRLB appointments have already begun.

If Dubya had done this, there would be calls for impeachment, a demand he retract the appointments, and bills being readied to block them.

And the news media would go on and on about it, too.

Remember, Obama does not govern the United States of America; he "Rules" the United States of America. The Constitution is an impedement to his view of "good" rule (not government).
