◼ The White House seemed confused over which chamber it is dealing with when it comes to the controversial recess appointments President Obama made last week. - Stephen Dinan/Washington Times
Twice on Thursday — in a Twitter message and again in the daily press briefing — officials pointed to the House being out of session.
"I believe on the House majority leader’s website today it said the House was not in recess — I mean, not in session," said Jay Carney, the press secretary.
The only problem with that is that the House is irrelevant to recess appointments. The only question that matters is whether the Senate is in session.
