It was a bold move because the other option was to sit there and do nothing and have the NLRB board get shut down anyway through the intrasingence of Senate Republicans. His choices were to sit on his thumb, get nothing done, and allow Senate Republicans to shut down the NLRB, or make this move, make the NLRB board functional and effective, and risk the legal challenge. At the very worst, the President will end up exactly where he'd be anyway.

A "pro forma" session is, in actuality, a recess with two douchebags banging a gavel every other day for minutes at a time. The issue's not nearly as clear you believe it to be, as usual.

Previous practice, maybe. Far as I know, there's no judicial precedent on the issue.

Swing and a miss.

Wrong.

It'd be hypocritical if I was arguing at the time that a similar move by Bush was unconstitutional.
