Respect for the constitution? Oh, I guess he only swore to uphold it… ================= By MELANIE TROTTMAN, JESS BRAVIN and MICHAEL R. CRITTENDEN A federal appeals court ruled Friday that President Barack Obama violated the Constitution in filling labor board vacancies, a decision that could reshape a long-standing practice by U.S. presidents to make recess appointments.
