The president cannot require Congress to act on his priorities. To the contrary, Congress acts independently of the president as a check and balance to his power.Precedent is a bitch. If this abomination is not slapped down now, there will be no stopping any future President from using it.
Obama's view that he may decide when the Senate has gone into recess virtually nullifies the Senate's advice and consent role. Under this rationale, what would stop the president from declaring recesses every weekend so that he can make unilateral appointments?
Any-time that the Senate or the House goes quite for short holidays and weekends will become an opportunity for an opportunistic President to make a "Recess Appointment."
So what will voters do about this in November? Will they reward Obama and his enablers in the Democrat Party by returning them to office?
Ultimately it is we the voters that are the last line of defence of the constitution.
It is up to us.
Vote them out.
