    It's a good decision by the court. A victory for constitutional law. Now, if BHO is going to be rebuked for unconstitutionally trying to appoint people during a Congressional recess why would anyone believe that he's going to issue an executive order to codify gay marriage? Or suspend elections? Or whatever other constitution hijacking conspiracy speculation that's making the rounds?

    If the decision stands, it takes away an often used loophole, exploited by many presidents of both parties. Obama doesn't stand alone here, although the righties would have you think so. This has been done since Andrew Johnson all the way through the George W. Bush administration (remember when Bush made the recess appointment of Bolton to be UN representative over the will of Congress).

    From the article:

    "Under the court's decision, 285 recess appointments made by presidents between 1867 and 2004 would be invalid.

    The Justice Department hinted that the administration would ask the Supreme Court to overturn the decision, which was rendered by three conservative judges appointed by Republican presidents. "We disagree with the court's ruling and believe that the president's recess appointments are constitutionally sound," the statement said.

    The court acknowledged that the ruling conflicts with what some other federal appeals courts have held about when recess appointments are valid, which only added to the likelihood of an appeal to the high court."

    The rules for recess appointments is outlined clearly in the constitution. Not so for the scope of executive orders. Marriage is not spoken to in the constitution. For that reason, it is and should be regulated by the states. The states could legally ignore an executive order concerning any kind of marriage.

    But , like the recess appointment case, any over -reaching executive order can be taken to court on constitutional grounds, and is subject to reversal.

    Untrue.

    No other president of either party has made a recess appointment when the Senate was in session as Obama did.

    The Constitution, when enforced, should lead all domestic tyrants to despair.
