My apologies for this short diary, but I have a question that I cannot find the answer to using the Google.
If the government shuts down, does that count as an official recess for the purpose of making recess appointments? Nothing would please me more than having President Obama make a slew of recess appointments given that the Republicans have decided to shut down the government.
I also wonder if that were the case and Republicans knew it, might they consider backing down from their goal of sabotaging the government, the economy, and the well being of the American people?
I hope this wakes up some stalwart Republican voters to the fact that electing Republicans is like staffing the fire department with pyromaniacs. All they want to do is burn everything down.
