Obama Escalates Dictatorial Power Grab

Not since FDR or perhaps Abraham Lincoln have we had a president so ignore the constitution. When President Obama cannot legally get what he wants, he takes it. This latest power grab will likely head to the Supreme Court and we can also expect Congressional push back. Congress can push back by withholding funds for the agency and by refusing to approve all other pending appointments. Congress should dig in and fight back and defend the Constitution.

What part of this does Dear Leader Obama not understand?

Section 2 - Civilian Power over Military, Cabinet, Pardon Power, Appointments

He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

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.
