A federal appeals court has struck down several of President Obama’s recess appointments that the president made while the Senate was having “pro forma” sessions. It looks bad for Obama. Well, I have an idea to help out his appeal before the Supreme Court. Obama’s legal team can argue that while it might look like the president made a recess appointment when he called it a recess appointment, the “appointment” was actually a congressional “tax” under a different name. Wouldn’t the Supreme Court note that words have meaning? Why start now? Over to you, Chief Justice Roberts.
