Remember how back when George Bush was president, the democrats were opposed to recess appointments by the president? Remember how they called it some kind of a constitutional gimmick and an immoral affront to the democratic process? Do you think now that they have their guy in the White House they still hold to the fierce moral urgency of putting an end to this anti-democratic executive branch trickery? Not so much. Not so much at all. According to Politico, Barack Obama just made 15 recess appointments as the Senate broke for Passover and Easter.
It’s sounding more like Hope and Change was just a campaign slogan. Who knew?
