Court reversing precedents to destroy government

Here's a description of the recent Appeals Court decision which invalidated Obama's recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board.

Appointing government officials during intra-session recess is a practice going back to Andrew Johnson.  Every one of the previous 5 presidents has used this technique, with over 300 appointments having been made this way.

But now, a highly partisan Court of Appeals reverses over 100 years of established practice with the claim that the Constitution did not intend to allow recess appointments within a congressional session.
