#1 The road to impeachment begins...01-25-2013, 03:30 PM
...with collecting potential charges.
In a case freighted with major constitutional implications, a federal appeals court on Friday overturned President Obama’s controversial recess appointments from last year, ruling he abused his powers and acted when the Senate was not actually in a recess.
The three-judge panel’s ruling is a major blow to Mr. Obama. The judges ruled that the appointments Mr. Obama made to the National Labor Relations Board are illegal, and the board no longer has a quorum to operate.
But the ruling has even broader constitutional significance, with the judges arguing that the president’s recess appointment powers don’t apply to “intrasession” appointments — those made when Congress has left town for a few days or weeks.
The case is likely to end up before the Supreme Court, and it turns on the definition of what the Constitution means when it says “recess.”
The judges on Friday ruled that the only clear bright line is when the Senate recesses at the end of the year.

there is now way in hell obama will ever be impeached, not with the make up of congress as it stands. The GOP is gutless and the Dems in the Senate could watch obama kill babies and not do a damn thing.We're from Philadelphia, We Fight- Chip Kelly

God for some reason wanted Obama elected, I don't know of any other way to explain the convenience of the east coast storm and several other events, if and when God wants him gone, he'll be gone, I feel like a spectator.The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

Well, there's no realistic way this would get him impeached, but it DOES throw the primary tool of his aggressive pro-union stance into the shitter.
