Merely citing a legal principle, without sufficient reasoning or application of such a principle to the facts, is not enough. Cf In re Cofer, 354 F.2d 664, 667 (CCPA 1966) ("[I]t is facts appearing in the record, rather than prior decisions in and of themselves, which must support the legal conclusion of obviousness."). The Examiner cites In re Karlson as though it set forth a per se rule that omission of an element in the prior art is always obvious when the remaining elements perform the same functions. Final Act. 3. It did not, and per se rules are generally inconsistent with the analysis required under § 103. 

Cofer, In re, 354 F.2d 664, 148 USPQ 268 (CCPA 1966) 2144.04
