Oh-Oh! Boo-Boo! Did Lil’ GOPie Get Its Feelings Hurt?

Sorry, but it’s truly risible that the GOP is howling in rage at Obama’s recess appointments to CFPB and NLRB. If Obama would only aim his foot at GOP butt a bit more often, we might have more reason to celebrate.

What a sorry bunch of fuckers the Grand Old Party has become!

ADDENDUM: I cannot for the life of me understand why this is even remotely controversial, though I can understand that Republicans wish it were, but it’s not really in dispute. Here’s the U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 2, Clause 3:

The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

There’s really no way around that: Obama has the constitutional authority to fill those positions. The shortness of a recess is simply not a constitutional issue.

    Only a liberal would relish in the thought of celebration when the law is broken. This is what’s wrong with our country. I guess when you don’t contribute to the tax system you don’t care if it is robbed. Makes sense. Just send me my disability check. Well run to the bank when you get it and cash it before they figure out it is fiat money & worthless. Shouldn’t be long now.

    Goddam you straight to Hell, nilvehsd, did you even bother to read what I wrote before you commented? It’s the fucking US CONSTITUTION that gives Obama the legal authority to make those appointments, and it doesn’t mean a goddam thing whether Republicans like it or not.

    Idiot troll. You’re history on this site. Don’t let the door hit you in the butt…

    Ditto on the moron troll.

      MandT, the thing about that bastard that irritated me most was his brickbat flung at everyone who collects disability. For the record… I DO NOT collect, and have not collected, disability. It may happen someday, but I’m not taking one cent of that goddam motherfucker’s tax money in disability payments. None!

      I know it is unkind of me, but I can’t help hoping the shithead is injured enough someday to have mobility limitations himself. Let’s see how long he lasts without government help, which of course he will honorably refuse because he doesn’t believe in that sort of thing… right? Right?
