Pot, Kettle

You're going to be hearing about Republican "obstructionism" in Congress quite a bit in the coming months, so here's a small May Day reminder.

Appeals Court cancels 300 NLRB decisions
The U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington said Friday that all the decisions handed down in 2008 by the National Labor Relations Board are invalid because they were made by just two members.

The board had three vacancies because Democrats who controlled Congress objected to President George W. Bush's labor policies and refused to confirm his nominees.

They did the same thing with the FEC, ensuring it could not act at all during last year's elections. I guess it's only really "obstructionism" when the minority does it, eh?
