      10jol..The way Obama made his has yet to be done for the past 80 yrs. A recess appt is not an inter-recess appt. He did some sneaky crap and got caught. You are ill informed

        It is possible that this decision could also invalidate every NLRB ruling for the past year, most of which had a pro-labor slant because of its liberal make-up.

        The NLRB is supposed to be an independent quasi-judicial body that reviews unfair labor practices by both management and labor unions.
        It sued Boeing for attempting to open a non-union factory in South Carolina until Boeing agreed to expand its operations in the pro-labor Puget Sound area.

          The appointments made were invalidated because one of the parties kept a Senator in the chamber to rap the gavel to an audience of zero to technically keep the Senate in session. I wonder which party.
          Did someone above mention ethics or morality?

            That would be "Dirty" Harry Reid (D-NV).

            "Hoisted on his own petard!"

            Seems Obabble "knew" about the "pro forma" sessions, decided (on his own) they didn't count and made the appointments anyway! Constitutional professor my left hind leg!

              Didn't most unions support Obama, during both his President campaigns? Appointing union members is just a little pay back.
              Jolsen, does that make it right because George Bush and George Washington allegedly did recess appointments muliple times?

                    If Mitt Romney didn't receive any campaign contributions from labor unions he'd probably be the only candidate from any party in the last hundred years who refused it.

                      Other presidents have made recess appointments. The Obama kicker was to make the appointments when most of the Senate was away but not actually in recess, and they were conducting abbreviated sessions every day precisely so Obama could not make a recess appointment.
                      In typical Obama style, he did it anyway in defiance of Congress. No president had ever tried that one before.

                        99explorer,
                        And likewise, no Senate has ever kept a lone Senator posted in the chamber solely so a President couldn't make appointments.
                        Pretty childish way of running an opposition party in my view.

                          It seems the president was testing the constitutional limits on his power, to the point where the court had to define "recess" to mean only when the Senate was in actual recess between sessions. Not just every time the Senators stepped out of the Capitol.

                          They ruled that it would destroy the checks and balances to give the president power to make recess appointments "...at any time he pleases, whether the time be a weekend, lunch, or even when the Senate is in session and he is merely displeased with its inaction. This cannot be the law."

                            Yes I know, the point is, 99 Senators were on recess, one was left to man the gavel.
                            Still a pretty childish tactic.

                              The president's response to the tactic will a costly one for the executive branch in terms of power if the decision is upheld on appeal.
                              He and all future presidents will have lost the recess appointment power as we now know it.
