  •  Of course Obama is better (0+ / 0-)

    But why doesn't he make recess appointments to NLRB, promote the Employee Free Choice Act, rewrite Nafta etc etc.

    Obama has not exactly held big businesses feet to the fire, he has been an ally. If he wants to get things done, then he needs to engage constituencies with choices rather than take Republican goons golfing. Let me give you an example; rather than keying in on Tea Publicans for IRS review, write an executive order that emphasizes high income tax payers returns as a way to reduce the deficit (this should have been done anyway as common sense). That cloaks the political act of going after high value Republican constituents with their own BS message of deficits.

    •  Because the courts just ruled that pretty much (1+ / 0-)

      all recess appointments are unconstitutional and he wants to wait for the SCrOTUS ruling.  Keep in mind that ruling might very well overturn Brown v Board of Education (among others) as that was decided by a judge that was a recess appointment.
