No Recess appointments during Senate RECESS

Republican U.S. Congressman Diane Black of Tennessee (Yes, she calls herself “Congressman”) has introduced a resolution disapproving of Obama’s recess appointments.  In a press release, she says “These appointments are an affront to the Constitution.  No matter how you look at this, it doesn’t pass the smell test.”  She goes on to complain that the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) appointments “were jammed through by the president before the Senate even had the chance to consider the appointees.  Their names were only put forward on December 15th, a mere two days before the Senate recessed for the holiday."  

So, let’s see.  CongressMAN Black thinks the president making a RECESS appointment during a time when the Senate is RECESSED is an affront to the Constitution.”

I'm always amazed at Republican illogic.
