As Allahpundit points out, if Obama wins, then his the Cordray and NLRB appointments are vindicated constitutionally. If he loses, then he’ll continue to run against the “do-nothing-Congress” and the Conservatives who ‘challenge every action I take for job creation.’
Nearly 40 Senate Republicans say they will sign on to a court challenge of President Barack Obama’s appointments to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the National Labor Relations Board…
“American democracy was born out of a rejection of the monarchies of Western Europe, anchored by limited government and separation of powers,” Texas Sen. John Cornyn said in a statement. “We refuse to stand by as this president arrogantly casts aside our Constitution and defies the will of the American people under the election-year guise of defending them.”
The senators didn’t indicate which legal case they would join, but one lawsuit making its way through the courts includes a Jan. 13 claim by the National Federation for Independent Business and the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation. It argues that appointments to the labor board are unconstitutional. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) announced earlier this week that he would join that case.
BTW, RINO Senator Scott Brown didn’t sign the letter challenging the appointments. Shouldn’t surprise since he’s more interested in cozying up to Obama in front of Massachusetts voters.
