Obama's Unconstitutional Power Grab

Brian Darling, writing for Human Events, understates the case.  The Cordray Annointing was more than just a power grab.  By making a so-called "recess appointment" while the Senate was in session, Obama has shredded the Constitution.  His actions are not only a clear violation of Article I, Section 5 of the Constitution, but an indication that Barack Hussein Obama views himself as the dictator of the United States.  The only question that remains is: will Congress have the political will to impeach Mr. Obama over what is so clearly an impeachable offense?

Darling writes:

"Last week, the President shredded yet another provision of the U.S. Constitution. He used an unconstitutional procedure to install Richard Cordray as head of the newly created Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and Richard Griffin, Sharon Block and Terence Flynn to be on the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB)."

"Obama installed them claiming his constitutional power to make recess appointments. Only problem is, the Senate isn’t in recess.

"The President has ignored the clear words of the Constitution. As The Heritage Foundation’s Todd Gaziano wrote, “The Constitution, in Article I, section 5, plainly states that neither house of Congress can recess for more than three days without the consent of the other house.” Congress has been in session conducting business every few days.

"Gaziano further observes that the President’s power under Article II to make recess appointments “has been interpreted by scores of attorneys general and their designees in the Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) for over 100 years to require an official, legal Senate recess of at least 10–25 days of duration.” The Senate is not even in a recess, therefore the President has abused his power."
