Skip to comments.John Boehner Is Getting Ready To Mount A Potentially Gigantic Lawsuit Against Obama
Posted on 06/24/2014 7:14:22 PM PDT by NormsRevenge
House Speaker John Boehner could file a lawsuit against President Barack Obama in days, in an attempt to challenge the administration's heavy use of executive actions to further its agenda.
Roll Call's Daniel Newhause reports Boehner told House Republicans during a closed-door meeting on Tuesday he could have an announcement in the coming days on whether he will mount the legal challenge. According to the report, he has been "consulting with legal scholars" ahead of his next move.
Boehner's office confirmed the Roll Call story, but declined to comment on whether specific executive actions would be targeted. Any legal action by Boehner would be a significant and somewhat unprecedented challenge to executive power.

My guess is the Supreme Court will throw it out and say “dumbass! Your branch wrote the laws, if you don’t like them repeal them or make them more defined”.
I will believe it when I see it. Unless he went into emergency surgery and had a set implanted, I have my doubts.
Me thinks Boehner does not grasp how little power the House now has and how much power Obama’s executive branch has amassed in the past 5 years. The House has not challenged Obama in the past and has given over much of its power to Obama. A lawsuit is nothing to Obama. Obama controls the apparatus of the Fed gov’t, including the courts.
Azzhole of the House
Key word with Boehner.
Derision of Boehner has become so de rigueur here, I doubt if he’d see approval if he managed to part the Potomac.
All he really can do is raise red flags and smoke signals to the greater American public.
Yawn ok call me when the Chicken lays an Egg
Impeach and remove
Good luck finding an impartial judge.
Stop blocking the more obvious solution and impeach. A lawsuit could then be a useful side measure.
can ya smell a tear?
I smelt that one comin’!
Who invited Hugh to the party? Now that would be huge.
Please elaborate for me why you shoot down someone with no obvious replacement?
I told you. Bohner ‘the Lion’ wont cut Obama any slack.
He is Obama’s worst nightmare, I bet Obama cant sleep at night since Bohner became Speaker, He is making Obama’s life a living hell.
This lawsuit might just remove Obama fro the WH.
Me thinks your reply gets a BTTT!
Darrell Issa , Mike Rogers and John Boehner all talk the talk, but refuse to walk the walk, - - - - they are not good for America.
They all whine and moan about being stonewalled by the Commie Obama Administration, but NOTHING effective happens, except for the formation of the Benghazi Committee under Trey Gowdy.
The House RINOs had their chance for OVER FOUR YEARS and have done NOTHING, proving that they are not good for America, PERIOD!
It is time to mow down the not good in the House, ASAP!
* Encourage your Rep in the US House to force Boehner to resign, before August 1, 2014.
* Encourage your House Rep in the US House to force do-nothing Chairmen such as Issa and Mike Rogers to resign, before Labor Day, 2014.
* Encourage your House Rep in the US House to publicly support Republicans who have proven that they have placed Country before Party.
While the RINOs may get re-elected to the House, we need to have them as far removed from any leadership role as possible.
The RINOs have failed to even slow down the Obamanation of America, even though they held the power of the purse for four years.
If a RINO cannot be voted out of office, then he/she must be relegated to a position subordinate to a fire-in-the-belly Conservative Republican Representative such as Trey Gowdy.
Early Primary voting begins soon after Labor Day in many States.
Most voters have made up their minds about who to vote for by Labor Day: Tick-tock, FReepers, Tick-TOCK!
Don’t deflect. Just answer the original question. What has he done for us [conservatives] lately?
boehner’s great grandfather, sir thomas crapper, is really proud of the crybaby.
Obama WANTS them to impeach more than ever, and so do all the democrats.
Because he will be acquitted in the Senate. WHATEVER he does, doesn’t matter.
The dems will make this a fight all about evil, nasty, racist republicans going after the Historical First BLACK President. And the press lies waiting with thousands of stories saying the same.
They think it is there one change to keep the Senate.
My idea is as follows: Lawsuit now.
Come the day after elections, and given the Senate moving to Republican hands, IMPEACHMENT that day.
Why don’t you answer the more pressing question. It is the devil’s game to damn whoever he can.
Boehner knows its an election year. He has no intention of doing anything effective
There was one radio talk show ‘host’ that was always coming out with some major ‘breaking’ developments in a ‘few days’.
Much the same as Sheriff Arpaio had all his facts ready next week.
Kind of like the big Geraldo ‘Jerry Rivers’ Rivera and his ‘Al Capone Vault’ Phiasco Phlop......
If you ‘act’ today, we can be talking about it for the next few days.
Why would President Obama want him to do this?
Why would he do that? He and Obama have a common enemy. The Conservatives.
Talk about a quote!! Bravo, sir, bravo.
He wants to take this issue to a court???
How absurd! The House of Representatives IS the court for this matter.
So the legislative branch whines to the judicial branch. Why not use the power of the House? Cripple or defund the agencies Obama is directing to violate the Constitution! The EPA can’t enforce its rules if it has to exhaust its budget to buy a box of paper clips.
Sure he is.
How about looking at what it says at the top of the US Constitution!
It doesn’t say “We the Congress.”
John Boehner is but one person. Badgered enough to attempt the impossible, he is finally reacting “Okay folks, I will.”
Seriously, stop. If you support Boehner, be succint in "why". I won't waste any further time with this game.
‘Boehner’ and ‘gigantic’ are mutually exclusive terms. If any Republican does anything remotely realistic about the rampant corruption by this president, the media will draw and quarter him and federal agencies will harass, intimidate and prosecute him. Watch the impending destruction of Scott Walker.
Boehner wants desperately to play Obama’s game.
Rather than follow the Constitutional prescriptions for a rouge president: defunding and impeachment. The House can also arrest administration officers.
Lawsuit?............. enforced by Whom?
It will be as meaningless as an Issa hearing
’ bout 87 percent of the time............you make me sick
You think that will actually break out of the situation?
God has permitted Satan to get America under his cloven hoofs. A situation like that is often to teach a person, or a people, the lesson that only God Himself will free them. And the person or people may finally swallow their pride and say yes, we will lean on the invisible. It is at that point that God will begin to bless, right in the existing situation.
The devil roars with delight to see self righteous negativity, since he knows that those doing the shooting do not have an ounce of power to resurrect anything.
Through much pain in my own life, I have learned that the answer to any problem is to stop and actively look for God’s Spirit, then cooperate with THAT.
I think you meant to say WHAT HAS HE DONE FOR US EVER.
I support God to support... yes Boehner. Unless you have a better, more credible party at hand to replace Boehner, in which case I will tout the virtues of that person in tandem with asking God to support that person.
But we are under the chastisement of God, and to slap back at the one who is scourging is an infantile reaction.
There is your answer.
Sad times. Here we have one of the most powerful positions in U.S government, the Speaker of the House thinks throwing a doomed to fail lawsuit at it has any meaning?
It’s doomed to fail because the problem is political and the solution needs to be political.
The Speaker has a bully pulpit to — if he would ever use it.
If any of them had the balls of Mice (little, little ones) than they would have already done something.
“What has he done for us [conservatives] lately?”
The last specific thing I remember was John telling conservatives, “Get your a**es in line!”.
Of course that’s like commanding cats to do close order drill, then we began wondering who the heck this guy was anyway, so now here we are and ...
Well that’s a reasoned approach so I won’t dispute it. I still think impeachment charges are long overdue and I do not believe the D senators would be able to just cast defend- Obama votes once the charges were pressed forward. But your way is logical.
Or maybe he'll consider starting a dialog to discuss whether or not he'll announce that he's thinking about the possibility of mounting the legal challenge.
I’ve thought for a long time he wasn’t mentally balanced.
Bonehead: “I meant to say I was going to buy a gigantic suit”
I’m sure he’ll mount anything politically detrimental to Obama.
