The fact that the President did so many arguably unconstitutional actions would not have anything to do with a couple of those cases coming before the Supreme Court now, would it?
Is anyone challenging unconstitutional recess appointments and the violation of the War Powers Act?

It seems the problem always is with Congress and the Judiciary branches but not with the President who manufactures one crisis after another for political effect.

"Sorry seems to be the hardest word" for Rupert Mudoch! What a wonderful montage your program played yesterday - between Elton John's the Murdoch's voices, I could barely stop laughing during my commute to work!! I have been humming the tune ever since!
