    Default Obama makes new NLRB nominations

    I really do not want to hear one more gripe from the Republicans on this issue!
    President Obama fulfilled his part of a Senate deal Tuesday to avoid major changes in the filibuster rules, making two new nominations to the National Labor Relations Board.

    Obama put up Nancy Schiffer, associate general counsel at the AFL-CIO, and Kent Hirozawa, chief counsel to NLRB chairman Mark Pearce.

    They replace nominees Richard Griffin and Sharon Block, whom Republicans had objected to because they were recess appointments.

    I bet before it is over the Repukes will not honor their agreement.

    I was thinking along the same lines as you! We have grown to expect it!

    Third court overturns Obama recess appointments

    A third federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that President Obama violated the Constitution last year when he made recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board, adding more weight to the case as it goes before the Supreme Court in the justices’ next session.
    The Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in a 2-1 decision, said that the president can only make recess appointments after Congress has adjourned “sine die,” which in modern times has meant when it breaks at the end of each year.

    Obama is not yet a Dictator to do as he pleases.

    Nor will he be. That is why we have the judicial system to help in matters such as this. Something had to be done in the interim. Useless politicians on the hill not earning their keep. That is the crime. The Unions receive the sentence. The workers get screwed once again.

    This is his second try or so and obviouslly he is not a dictator or else we'd have people in position.....but your great 'freedom and liberty" for the business owners and bankers only crowd, keep holding the majority down.................maybe this story is proof that he is not a dictator........does this mean you will quit calling him one strappy? Probablly not, nor will anybody else who think like you. The ones who prevent the nominations from being put on the job are just as guilty of "dictatorship" as Obama when they delay the process intentionally,IMO.
