GOING AGAINST previous precedent in the matter and most obviously going against the Constitution.
He also acts as if the Senate's pro forma sessions was some brand new tactic. This has been used for years to block recess appointments.
So quit trying to act as if what the court did was some massive change of the game. OBAMA brought this on himself with his illegal expansion of executive powers. Even Evil President Bush abided by these rules when Reid used pro forma sessions to block him.
Where was your outcry when Reid was using the same tactic? ****ing partisan hypocrite.
How long has this pro forma tactic been used?
I thought the article stated that Harry Reid was the first leader to do it.
Where Ignorance is Bliss, 'Tis Folly to be Wise.
