Postby rgrokelley » January 4th, 2012, 12:19 pm

Obama makes recess appointment, while Senate is still in session.

The Congress is not even an obstacle anymore

That whole situation is asinine - on both sides of the aisle. When I read that I felt like I was watching the senate argue about Leonidas fate in the movie 300.

Just a little context....

So far Obama is the first president in US history to go to war without Congressional approval (Libya).

The first president in US history to have an American citizen executed without any due process whatsoever (Anwar al Awlaki)

Now he is the first to just appoint whoever he wants, without any Congressional approval at all.

Fuck it... I'm King. Whatcha going to do about it!!
