Well now this is confusing

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/03/04/unconstitutional-nlrb-employers-worst-nightmare/

This should be fun.

I Obama appointed this board but it was unconstitutional

That would mean those appointed are not legall appointed and so any rulings would be null and void.

So If its upheld through appeals does Obama have to pay them the salaries that they got (back to the government) and all the costs of the cases (to the people affected) they ruled on?

We could be spinning in circles for a long time.

So question.  Do you think the President was fully aware that he was overstepping his authority and appointed this board improperly?

Do you think it was and honest mistake?

  • I don't think he is fully aware that he's overstepping his authority. When you believe you can do no wrong then there's no way you can overstep your own authority. I think he believes that his is the final word on anything. Doesn't matter what the law/constitution/etc says. He doesn't like it then he changes it to say what he wants it to say. After all his word is law.

  • Your answer is in the URL... Foxnews.com.

    It's not confusing, you're just depending on biased media who can't report anything reliably.

  • I don't know what would happen regarding their compensation. I doubt it would be paid back in any way. This administration only knows how to tax and spend, they have no real solutions on how to reign wasteful government spending in.

  • And to answer your question OP.....are you surprised Obama did this also? I am not. There has been a few things that Obama has done that can be deemed as unconstitutional in his presidential term...this latest one comes as no surprise to me. And just to think we are stuck with this man for another 3 yrs. He doesn't care anymore. He can do whatever he wants now he doesn't have to worry about a re-election. His true colors are showing through. I didn't vote for him........
