Rebuke to President Obama

The Supreme Court issued a unanimous rebuke to President Obama on Thursday, saying he had overreached in issuing recess appointments during brief breaks in the Senate’s work.
Mr. Obama violated the Constitution in 2012, the justices said, by appointing officials to the National Labor Relations Board during a break in the Senate’s work when the chamber was convening every three days in short pro forma sessions in which no business was conducted. Those breaks were too short, Justice Stephen G. Breyer wrote in a majority opinion joined by the court’s four other more liberal members.
There have been several men who have had that kind of majority to work with, but they were benign Presidents. They were good men who were trying to do the country good and they weren't trying to be a dictator.

The first was Franklin D. Roosevelt,and he did it for the good of the poor man. He did more to help the poor than almost any ruler of America in their history. The country was desperate, in the midst of a depression. Then they got into a war. But the way he did it was to get control of the Supreme Court. He had a five-man liberal majority on the Supreme Court. This is why there was such a hassle over these new appointees for the Supreme Court in this recent thing of the President.

He had the Congress willing to do almost anything he wanted them to do. He'd been in for four terms, so that with the people behind him they'd elect congressmen that worked with him, and he had the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court was the way he got started.

A ruler and leader gets a little puffed up in his head and begins to think he's really a god. God won't stand for it.
