Finally -- Chutzpah From the White House: Obama Makes 15 Recess Appointments

President Obama has announced that he will make 15 recess appointments.  The nominees were all tied up by partisan politics for an average of 214 days each.

Naturally, Republican have criticized the appointments -- even though presidents from both parties have made them. According to the Associated Press, President Bush made 170 recess appointments, while President Clinton made 140.

I do agree that it's nice to see the democrats actually getting up off of the floor. I came of age in the '60's and I've been incredibly disappointed by the lack of backbone of the new generation.
