So, grinch, what you basically have is an appointee who was rejected and a bill that was also rejected. Obama wants him in and has his own major ties with SEIU. What does he do? Brings him in while congress is on recess, denying them the right to vote on the appointment. The card check bill that has been rejected? That can be brought in, too, inside of the NLRB once the nominee gets in, once again with Congress being shut out of the decision.
No one sees a recurring modus operandi here with regards to the way Obama is running the country? When something comes up that congress or the American public don't want but Obama does, he simply does end runs and uses loopholes to get it in. Can't pass health care due to a filibuster? Use reconciliation, even though that porcedue has NEVER been used on a bill of this magnitude. Want an SEIU lawyer on the NLRB. Get him in in such a way congress has no voice in it. He is fracturing constitutional procedures like they were mirrors he doesn't want to look into. It amazes me that so many otherwise normally intelligent people cannot see, or refuse to see, what damage this man is doing to the country and the harm he is doing to the constitution. I feel confident that, in a few years when the wheels have come off of his bandwagon and the United States faces incredible domestic and economic upheaval, the same people that are closing their eyes to his actions now will be the ones saying, "We didn't know!", just like the Germans living in the towns surrounding the extermination camps, who actually did know but didn't want to acknowledge. These people know, also...they just don't want to acknowledge it.
