01 August 2005 - Politics - Bolton to Get U.N. Job Today

A recess appointment is a procedure that allows a president to fill a vacant job when Congress is not in session. Lawmakers left for vacation last week. The move will allow Bolton to stay in the job without Senate confirmation until the end of the current Congress in January 2007.

It is the 106th recess appointment for Bush. Former President Clinton made 140 recess appointments during his two terms in office.

Sounds like we need to get rid of the ability to do recess appointments... It is extremely obvious that everyone (democrat and republican alike) are abusing this power.
