Political strategists weigh in on Obama’s recess appointments

Posted: Updated:

A federal appeals court said Friday that President Obama overstepped his authority with a series of recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board.

The case may wind up in the Supreme Court and determine how far the president can go in appointing people whose nominations would otherwise be blocked by the Senate.

The result could affect the standing of other Obama recess appointees such as the head of the president's new consumer, such as the head of the president's new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Richard Cordray.

Joining FOX 7 to discuss this issue is Democratic consultant Jason Stanford and Republican strategist Rob Johnson.
