About Obama’s Recess Appointments
Bear this in mind as you listen to the Republicans screaming about the recess appointments President Obama made today (here):
Overall, Obama has been significantly less aggressive in recess appointments than his predecessors — to date, he’s made just 29 such appointments, compared with 171 for George W. Bush and 139 for Bill Clinton.
The outrage is an act. The Republicans think we’re so dumb we’ll fall for it and of course, the “liberal media” doesn’t fill in the blanks with the simple facts above, so we do.
