Letter: A logjam created for political expediency


When President Obama made his “recess” appointments to the NLRB last year, there is little doubt that he was trying to keep his liberal base happy and unified for the upcoming presidential election. Now, the consequences of his political machinations are coming to fruition, not that he cares since he is safely reelected. Unfortunately, the president is compounding the problem by ignoring the federal appeals court ruling finding the appointments unconstitutional by keeping the illegitimate appointees working.

Now, dozens of companies are trying to void or block rulings by the NLRB made since the illegitimate appointments. At least 87 companies and three unions are citing the court decision to protest cases within the department and dozens of others are citing the ruling in federal appellate court filings. Not only are the decisions of the NLRB board now suspect, but also the decisions of at least 10 regional directors whose appointments by the board are void if the board itself is illegal.

There is a saying that “manure runs downhill.” As the cases being contested cause new business to be delayed by the backlog, the department is being overwhelmed. Nothing in, nothing out. A logjam created for political expediency, or, as this administration would put it, “just another day at the office.”

There may be some backlash from these recess appointments but I don't think it will logjam our legal system. Mr. Barber's opinion smacks of another right wing blog re-post gleaned from some ultra right publication that specializes in going Nyah-Nyah -Nyah to President Obama.

First thing to do after reading one of Mr. Barber's posts is to look up his assertions for yourself, then consider the source.
