Supreme Court limits president's recess appointment power

The Supreme Court delivered a blow Thursday to President Obama, ruling that he went too far in making recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board.

In a unanimous decision, the high court sided with Senate Republicans and limited the president's power to fill high-level vacancies with temporary appointments. It was the first-ever Supreme Court test involving the long-standing practice of presidents naming appointees when the Senate is on break. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/06/...ent-power/

The thing is that they did not "limit" his power, they simply reaffirmed the rules as written. He never had the power and what he did was illegal.

I think you could say the same about many of his executive orders that circumvent congresses powers. Immigration, use of military force, notification of Gitmo releases, EPA regulations to name a few.

Well maybe if Congress would do its job and confirm appointments instead of trying to strangle the agencies and courts by simply refusing to confirm ANYONE, recess appointments wouldn't be an issue at all.

This is just a variation of the "government shutdown" stunt.

The Executive picks the appointees, and it's the duty of the Legislative to advise and consent--- not stone-wall.

Maybe if he would appoint someone who wasnt a full blown liberal/progressive or socialist they would appoint someone. Seriously look at some of his choices. It cant be his way or no way, it doesnt work like that.
