From David Poff of RedState on Obama's recess appointments notes Obama's attitude...
“I simply cannot allow partisan politics to stand in the way of the basic functioning of government,” said Obama, who days ago signed historic healthcare reform despite bitter Republican opposition.
“At a time of economic emergency, two top appointees to the Department of Treasury have been held up for nearly six months,” Obama said in a statement.
Really Mr. Obama? Isn’t it your own party’s partisanship
that brings you to this revelation? Is there any partisanship greater
than that enjoyed by you this morning?

Democrat Does Not Mean Democracy: Barack Obama named 15 recess appointments Saturday, circumventing the usual Senate approval process. Obama attributed the need for recess appointments on the "unprecedented level of obstruction" in the U.S. Senate, led primarily by the chamber's Republicans.
Huh? The Senate is presently Democrat-controlled. Has been since '06.
"The United States Senate has the responsibility to approve or disapprove of my nominees. But if, in the interest of scoring political points, Republicans in the Senate refuse to exercise that responsibility, I must act in the interest of the American people and exercise my authority to fill these positions on an interim basis," Obama said.
What a crock. Enough! It's time to impeach this lying pantload. Where do I sign the petition?
I concur. Obama is a rabble rousing LIAR. His childish foot stomping besmirches the presidency.
And if this any indication of his level of frustration under a friendly congress and senate, I shudder to think what our nation will be subjected to after November.
