WASHINGTON Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann says House conservatives are preparing to sue President Barack Obama for executive overreach in response to his threats of unilateral action on a host of issues.
Hes the president of the United States hes not a king, the Republican lawmaker told reporters after Obamas State of the Union address. He may think hes a king, he may declare himself king, but thats not what he is under our Constitution.
Bachmann said an effort is underway in Congress to take back their authority under the Constitution as the House of Representatives. She said the plan is to introduce legislation allowing lawmakers to hire an attorney, so we can force the president to act under the Constitution.
Well sue the president of the United States and force him to no longer act unilaterally, she said.
In his address at the Capitol Tuesday night, Obama said he plans to take unilateral action on the minimum wage for federal workers. He suggested he might go solo on guns, for example.

Bammy is not a king, he’s a marxist, islamic Dicktater.
Well ... not yet ...
“Let it begin here.”
Talk is cheap. Do it.
So Harry Reid is actually going to allow this legislation to pass in the Senate and then Obama will sign it into law?
He has sovereign immunity.
He must be impeached.
Open Hearings on the Articles of Impeachment and quit dicking around.
As much as I like Bachman it would seem she is as much a twit as the rest of her collegues. IMPEACH! That’s what the House is supposed to do.
You’re an optimist! Thinking being under oath would have the slightest affect on whether he told the truth.
Sue? I thought according to the constitution the only thing you can do to the President is to impeach him.
Shame you actually have to sue a fraud azzhole because he is pretending to be King and nobody has the guts to call him out unless they go to a court where the fraud azzhole has the judges all in his favor.
Since when does the Legislative branch have to take the Executive to court?
They aren’t powerless. They have impeachment (abuse of power qualifies, its the real reason Clinton was impeached), Congressional nullification of Federal Regulations, nullification of EO’s through constraining laws, withholding expenditures, and other measures too abstract to mention.
It’s beneath them to go to the courts. In the United States the Congress is first among equals, and who said they were equals anyway? The courts are constrained by Congress.
They need to start multi-pronged legislative initiatives on this guy and his co-conspirators and ramp it up until either he stops or they impeach him, and who cares about the ensuing riots. That will simply be the icing on the cake: don’t ever put an unqualified thug on the throne just because of his skin color.
They’ve got to force the media to talk about it and try to defend the lawlessness.
In attacking her, they will have to at least mention why she is doing what she is doing.
That is what I am COUNTING on. Lying under oath is exactly how the impeachment hearings got started for Clinton.
Yea yea yea We have been hearing for a year, just last week they were going to get rid of Johnny Boy - didn’t do that either.
Writ of quo warranto?
