Slapping down Executive over-reach…

(With special thanks to Mark Levin’s Landmark Legal Foundation)

For those of you who may have missed it, Obama shot himself in the foot…

His January 2012 ‘recess’ appointments have been struck down by a 3-judge panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals. In a 47-page decision, the judges laid out an extremely wide-ranging ruling that not only negates the NLRB appointments in question, but goes further in restricting the Executive recess-appointment powers.

Anyone who appreciates the Constitution would be well-advised to read this ruling. It is an impressive judgement that truly displays how words such as “the”, “Recess”, and “happen”  have meaning, and cannot be subverted to justify Executive power-grabs.

Ironic, that the man who made the “just words?” speech is finally brought to heel…

…by just 3 words…
