Boehner must’ve finally picked up a whiff of dissent from the rank & file.

News Flash: Obama will continue to do whatever he wants UNLESS Speaker Boehner appoints a House special Prosecutor with subpoena powers.

BREAKING NEWS: HOUSE SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER is hitting the brakes on immigration legislation, saying:

‘There’s widespread doubt about whether this administration can be trusted to enforce our laws and it’s going to be difficult to move any immigration legislation until that changes.’

Well, that part is true. Guess O will get out his pen and phone.

That means it’s a done deal and they’ll pass it in the middle of the night.

So. Only the threat of losing his speaker-ship finally did the trick?!

Be careful of a rope-a-dope strategy.

Boehner is just time wasting. The amnesty pimps are not done with this yet. After investing over $50 million they will not go this quietly.

What he means is, that it would be hard to pass without a rebellion. He would really love to pass it with the democrats, but those pesky conservatives are preventing him.

Boehner has no power to appoint a special prosecutor. The only one who can do that is Eric Holder. Good luck.

The implied ‘threat’ is that -

After Nov 2014 election is safely behind them, then they can freely collaborate with Obama.

Speaker of the House John (I’m better than Pelosi!) Boehner is already on record as saying that AMNESTY will move forward AFTER the PRIMARY SEASON.

I would place more stock in that statement than this latest pronouncement.

He’d better make it impossible. Make Obabma enforce the laws on the books now!

Oh good grief, quite publishing anything this rudderless drunk says.

With the possible exception of the Clintons and the certain exception of the Obamadork, no one in the multiverse is less believable.

Not so!

The Speaker of the HOUSE can appoint a HOUSE Special Prosecutor with subpoena powers.

It is part of the Constitutional Checks and Balances.

“Speaker John Boehner: Any immigration legislation would be difficult to pass this year.”

But you will still try real damn hard won’t you?

LOL, I been trashing her for weeks posting pictures and quotes from her here. Few here seemed to have heard about her.

She is one obnoxious annoying fat Nicaraguan

Boehner has a lot of power he never uses. He could appoint a select committee on Benghazi, partially defund obamacare, engage obama directly re. IRS assaults on conservatives, etc., etc.

But that would require being an engaged opposition party, something he has no interest in doing. So instead we get this time wasting tip toe to the election strategy. It’s a proven loser game plan but that’s all he’s got.

.....difficult to pass this year....

Especially since Boehner’s boss (SOEBARKAH) is about to get exposed as a foreign plant by IRAN, and half of Congress is going to prison.

The Speaker of the HOUSE can appoint a HOUSE Special Prosecutor with subpoena powers.

The House Sergeant of Arms also has the power to arrest.

“Boehner has a lot of power he never uses.”

True. But he can’t appoint a special prosecutor. I was responding to the suggestion that he could.

********************************************

Where is that in the Constitution? It's not. The only prosecutor he can appoint is in an impeachment trial.

Of course they can issue subpoenas. In fact they have, and Holder stonewalled. That leaves impeachment as the legal remedy. The Pubs could impeach the Obama and/or Holder. Politically it would be a disaster and it would get nowhere with Harry Reid as the judge, and the Democrat Senate as the jury.

I'm no fan of Boehner but that's the reality.

Of course. They are just waiting. Reminds me of What About Bob? Every time you open the door, there they are, waiting.
