In addition, under the Constitution, the President has the power to adjourn Congress if the House and Senate cannot agree on a time and date. I love it when Republicans are stymied by what is actually in the Constitution rather than what they wish is in it.

The Senate is required to adjourn between the 1st and 2nd sessions of the 112th Congress. This will happen some time in January.

As usual, you are, correct. It is doubtful then that President Obama make any “presidential appointments” before Friday, 30 December 2011 as now stands. I was sure that he would make an appointmnet to the National Labor Relations Board during the break before Friday.

Standoff in D.C. Imperils Labor Board.

Senate GOP, led by Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, is refusing to officially adjourn for the year to block Obama from making recess appointments, potentially forcing the National Labor Relations Board to shut down.
