Remember back in the days of Watergate when the Dems were accusing the Nixon WH of stonewalling? Well, this is stonewalling.

Everything this miserable traitorous president does he considers an “unreasonable burden” when it comes to upholding the Constitution.

This coming from the most transparent and open Administration in history! Just ask Nancy Pelosi for details.

Constitution calls for three branches, “checks and balances”. Founding Fathers intended the judicial branch to be weakest. Legislative branch, the most powerful, always has the option to quit funding anything it objects to.

“”unreasonable burden on the president’s ability to meet his constitutional duties.”

I guess I didn’t realize that his “constitutional duties” comprised 2 years of campaigning.

No one is answering the big question. Who is going to force them to comply? Holder's Justice Department?

When did Obama ever perform his Constitutional duties?

Isn’t DOMA one of his Constitutional duties? Isnt protecting our Borders a Constitutional duty?

“Who is going to force them to comply? “

How about the 1stMarDiv and the 101st Airborne?

All Buckwheat has is a 30 IQ gang of 300 lb. + slobs in the ATF, a division of fat welfare mommas and the poodles in the propaganda press.

How well do you think these farting, overweight commies match up against the Marines and the Airborne?

Isn’t that called obstruction? I know it would be if this were a Republican regime.
