    Obama recess appointments unconstitutional, court

    A federal appeals court has overturned President Obama’s controversial recess appointments from last year, arguing he abused his powers and acted when the Senate was not actually in a recess.

    The three-judge panel’s ruling is a major blow to Mr. Obama. The judges ruled that the appointments Mr. Obama made to the National Labor Relations Board are illegal, and the board no longer has a quorum to operate.

    Of course. They'll lose there as well...unless Roberts bails them out again.

    If Obama was really smart , he would cut his losses and fire them now. He is only digging his hole deeper with every rule the NLRB puts out. They will all become invalid.
