      This story totally misses the point. At issue is whether the Senate is in recess, not the quality of the appointment.

      I joined this site determined to do only one thing: answer questions. I will not preach or lecture or even point out glaring inaccuracies where I see them.

    •  That's the bottom line to Yoo (2+ / 0-)

      In everything else he writes he is trying to say that if the senate is in pro-forma session and not doing any actual work (as he admits) then, it is in session and Obama's move is illegal.

      But the bottom line is that any of us could have written Yoo's column in one sentence:

      "This was illegal for a Democratic president but it would have been fine if he was a Republican and I was being paid to defend the maneuver."

      I am a fiscal conservative. That means I believe in progressive taxation and investing for a better tomorrow in education, infrastructure, clean energy, and regulating business for the benefit of all.
