  •  He ought to recess appoint a few federal (13+ / 0-)

    judges as well.  If you are going to send a message, send a very clear one.

    Republicans are like alligators. All mouth and no ears.

    •  Federal judges are a bit different (0+ / 0-)

      as they really need to be independent.

      But there is no reason not to fill up all the empty offices in the Executive Branch.

      •  There have been quite a few non controversial (0+ / 0-)

        judges appointed by President Obama with easy passage in the Judicial Committee, and likely near unanimous support from the full senate, but they have been held up by radical republican senators for no reason other than Obama  appointed them.  He should recess appoint a few of them.  That would force the SCOTUS, when this case gets to them, to have to go against their own.  Federal judges have received recess appointments in the past, maybe we need a few now.
