    WASHINGTON – President Obama violated the Constitution when he bypassed the Senate to fill vacancies on a labor relations panel, a federal appeals court panel ruled Friday.

    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.

    The unanimous decision is an embarrassing setback for the president, who made the appointments after Senate Republicans spent months blocking his choices for an agency they contended was biased in favor of unions.

    The question is will the skinny dictator abide by the decision?

    Of course, he violated the law. It's been crystal clear since day one.

    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.
