    A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit said that Obama did not have the power to make three recess appointments last year to the National Labor Relations Board.

    With all due respect, I am surprised that the Democrats have not called the court racist for going against the President.

    On this, and many other things, we agree. These recess appointments were ridiculous abuses of power.
