    Some legal experts, including those who have sided with President Obama on other constitutional issues, think there is a good chance the courts could overturn his recent recess appointments.

    I just wish Obama had exhibited more spine and made the same number of recess appointments that Bush did under similar circumstances. The Repubs intransigence brought this about and they should stop their whining.

    There are fundamental differences between how the recess appointments were made under both administrations. With respect to the current "recess" appointments - there wasn't ever a "recess" as previously defined.

    Tell me honestly Riddler, do you really blame Obama? Seems to me the intransigence on the part of Senate repubs in blocking everything and everybody, begged for this appointment.
