The Recess Appointment is a Flaw in The Constitution

Triggered by this, let me assert that  “Recess Appointments” are a flaw in the US Constitution.

The US should adopt a constitutional amendment that:

1) Negates recess appointments
2) Add automatic approval of any presidential appointment after say 4 months  if the nominee has not been rejected by the Senate.  Queued up appointments expire with the end of a presidential term.

This gets rid of recess appointment gaming/trickery/abuse, and forces the Senate to act up presidential nominees. It WIN-WIN for the US.
