Associated Press Praises Obama's Recess Appointments, Yet Thrashed Bush For It

Obama announces 15 recess appointments, scolds GOP

AP- "Fed up with waiting, President Barack Obama announced Saturday he would bypass a vacationing Senate and name 15 people to key administration jobs, wielding for the first time the blunt political tool known as the recess appointment.

... Obama revealed his decision by blistering Republicans, accusing them of holding up nominees for months solely to try to score a political advantage on him...

"I simply cannot allow partisan politics to stand in the way of the basic functioning of government," Obama said in a statement.

AP spins Obama's anti-democratic move against Republicans. They parrot his ridiculous argument that Republicans were stalling his appointments so it is necessary for him to circumvent democracy.

When Bush appointed judges while Congress was recessed, we heard a much different story:

The Supreme Court, dodging a charged dispute over judicial nominations, declined yesterday to consider whether President Bush overstepped his bounds in naming a federal judge while Congress was on a short break.

The appeals argued that Pryor's temporary appointment was an end-run around the Senate's right to confirm or reject judicial nominees.

The justices' move avoids a contentious issue on the eve of a widely speculated vacancy on the court. If they had intervened, it would have set up a constitutional showdown...

''That unprecedented conception of the recess appointments power obviously vitiates the cardinal authority of the Senate to pass on the president's nominees," he stated."

This time they reported the obvious, that it is an end-run around the democratic process. The Associated Press took every opportunity to blast Bush's judicial picks as racist homophobes and praise Democrats for stalling their appointmnets.

One final fact you will not see reported anywhere, Obama railed against Bush for his recess appointments. He said this of John Bolton:

To some degree, he’s damaged goods. I think that means we’ll have less credibility and, ironically, be less equipped to reform the United Nations in the way that it needs to be reformed.
