Ed Meese: House Should Pass Resolution Condemning Obama for Unconstitutional Act

Yes, Ed Meese, the former United States Attorney General under the great Ronald Reagan, says the U.S. House of Representatives can pass a resolution to condemn POTUS Obama !!!!!

Obama's unconstitutional behavior for unilateral appointments while Congress was in session is the basis for the outrage.

Meese also would like to see the Senate do the same.

On Jan. 4, President Barack Obama ostensibly used recess appointments to name Richard Cordray the director of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and to name Sharon Block, Richard Griffin and Terence Flynn to the National Labor Relations Board.

Some "Condemning" points in the Article and Video:
Condemnation !!

Well, if Ed Meese says so.......???

“I believe that they were in session, yes,” Meese said. “In other words, I believe that they were not in recess. And the fact is they were holding sessions on a regular basis every three days.”

“Now, the interesting thing is that the Senate itself has indicated that they were in session by holding the pro-forma session,” said Meese. “During such a session at the end of 2011, during exactly the same kind of a session, they actually passed a bill, the payroll tax holiday. So there is no difference between that session and the session that was held in January, particularly on the fourth of January, during the time in which the president usurped the constitutional requirements and made these appointments.”

Meese pointed out that when George W. Bush was president, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid kept the Senate in session under the same terms as it was in session this Jan. 4, precisely for the purpose of preventing Bush from making recess appointments.

Condemn Obama ? ....

Swap the word condemn with impeach, and then it'll be perfect. But unfortunately a good chunk of the rest of the government is guilty of not following the Constitution as well, so it's unlikely that any president will get impeached for grossly violating the Constitution.

If you have sex though, you get impeached, but if you break your oath of office and show blatant disregard for the fundamental document that restricts our government, you stay in power. Don't you just love the path our government has gone down?

Yeah right after they indict Cheney on Crimes Against Humanity and GWB on WAR Crimes they might get to Obama. By the way it that the same Ronnie Reagan who spent his last months in office with Alzheimer? He didn't even know he was President there near the end.

The president has the authority to act when congress is incapable of acting -- they were incapable of acting because they were on vacation.

Wait the Ed Meese who resigned because of scandal -- that Ed Meese?
