WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack 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 ruling also throws into question Obama's recess appointment of Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Cordray's appointment, also made under the recess circumstance, has been challenged in a separate case.

Obama claims he acted properly in the case of the NLRB appointments because the Senate was away for the holidays on a 20-day recess. But the three-judge panel ruled that the Senate technically stayed in session when it was gaveled in and out every few days for so-called "pro forma" sessions.

GOP lawmakers used the tactic - as Democrats have in the past as well - to specifically to prevent the president from using his recess power. GOP lawmakers contend the labor board has been too pro-union in its decisions. They had also vigorously opposed the nomination of Cordray.

The Obama administration is expected to appeal the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court, but if it stands, it means hundreds of decisions issued by the board over more than a year are invalid. It also would leave the five-member labor board with just one validly appointed member, effectively shutting it down. The board is allowed to issue decisions only when it has at least three sitting members.

On Jan. 4, 2012, Obama appointed Deputy Labor Secretary Sharon Block, union lawyer Richard Griffin and NLRB counsel Terence Flynn to fill vacancies on the NLRB, giving it a full contingent for the first time in more than a year. Block and Griffin are Democrats, while Flynn is a Republican. Flynn stepped down from the board last year.

Obama also appointed Cordray on the same day.

The court's decision is a victory for Republicans and business groups that have been attacking the labor board for issuing a series of decisions and rules that make it easier for the nation's labor unions to organize new members.

Definitely. The Republicans have always been known as the 'smart party' for intellectuals right?  Roll Eyes. The party for the believers of Sky Gods.

You got this thing with 'liberals' in your brain and you've attached that to the Democrats. I doubt you could even broadly define the term. Lemme guess, pinko's and commies that hates guns right?

Recess appointments have been blissfully sailing along for 150 years, and, now, when the legislative branch starts playing games with it, the executive branch pays the price.

Great job Party of No!  Except here are a few facts.

1. Republicans refuse to consider his nominations for almost any job. Hundreds of judgeships remain vacant because they simply won't even look at the nominations. Typical of their outrageous obstructionism.

2. At the time of the "recess appointments," Congress was neither in session or in town!

3. Typical of of their obstructionism, before they left town, they passed a resolution saying that, even though no one was in D.C.. they were still in session.

4. The Court, in this ruling, says that they were.

5. Most importantly, they are wrong, and their wrong-headed decision will be overturned. Count on it.

Meanwhile, in the land of the La-La Party.  Fresh from their stunning success in voter suppression...   Republicunts have a Constitutional amendment proposed to determine Presidential victor to be candidate who gets the most territory, not votes.   Roll Eyes

No way, really? I'd have to do some reading on that. Suppose it makes sense from their point of view as dickheads are spread quite far and wide and over large areas.

Tell you what. Why don't you tell me what makes dems so much more intellectual than repubs. There is a distinct difference between a democrat and a left wing liberal wack job which seems to be taking over this country.

So I guess you know more than the ruling judges of the US Court of Appeals? Take a look at his not just these "appointees" but the others. All of them either have ties to or are apart or subscribe to communism, this isn't CT, this is fact. Just because they are educated doesn't mean they are qualified for teir particular job. Most if not all are not qualified. He "appointed" his buddies. Nothing more, nothing less. There is a reason why this person (Obama, I refuse to call him "President") is questioned in EVERY act he does.

Your lack of common sense is the direct reason for posts such as these.

I guess that will be the GOPs next excuse.  They refuse to call him "President".   Funny how despite getting an ass whipping in the last election the GOP thinks they can tell the POTUS who he can and can't appoint.

The Senate was not in recess - and - O-SHITHEAD does not get to say when recess is or not. 

Hope that helps

There are certain rules even the Obama (or a President) must follow. Just because you're president does not mean in anyway, shape or form you are above the law and can make shit up as he goes along. As I'm talking to my brother-in-law, he had informed me that if this stands, this is an impeachable offence among other things. Speaking of commonsense, it's the lack of commonsense the reason why this country is in dire straights. Obama knows but chooses to take this country on fiscally disastrous path as well as his foreign policies. Tell me one thing he has done that has one iota of commonsense? Not just him, but his cohorts as well.

You always seem to be "talking to" someone.  Which generally means you are full of shit about what you are saying.  Remember your so-and-so "on the Hill" saying that Obama was destined to lose the election?  Yeah.  Same thing here. 

Again, a typical post of yours that if it contained a molecule of common sense would not have appeared on the board.  "Impeachable"?  BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA.

Answer my question. Yes, I am always "talking to someone" I never said he was destined to lose and it's 100% impeachable if it's not overturned. Now, again...ANSWER MY QUESTION.

Really?  What did your on the Hill source say again?  Please post a link to that statement.  So I can ridicule it.  Again.

What was your question again?
