You Say That As If It Were a Bad Thing


The New York Times has an editorial up whining about the Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit ruling that presidential recess appointments have to be made during a period when the Senate is actually in recess. You see, the problem with following the requirements of Article II, Section 2 of the Constitutions is that to do so would invalidate the appointments that Barack Obama made to the National Labor Relations Board and negate all the decision rendered by the NLRB for the past year. It would also bring the appointment of Richard Corday as head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the ton or so of regulations that agency has promulgated into question.

So what’s wrong with that?

    Not one thing. It has been past time to rein the President back in from procedural outrages like this.
