He was filing one, but his tears smeared the ink rendering it unreadable. Pelosi and Obuma laughed.

And the courts will tell him that if Congress believes that the President is acting illegally and unconstitutionally, then it will be up to Congress to impeach, try, and remove him.

Case closed.

The DOJ will ignore it, and a judge appointed by Clinton or Obama will dismiss it for lack of standing or some such.

Someone tell Weeping Willie that “the House controls the purse strings” and explain what that means.

That is the obvious solution, and I’d bet if hewas impeached prior to the November election, ther would be a significant number of Democrats that would vote for impeachment. Would likely even get some Democrats in the Senate to convict, but certainly a 2/3 to oust him would be impossible.

That is still no reason not to uphold and defend the constitution.

Fox didn't need to put alleged in the title. If one is filing a suit one is alleging something. Using it is pejorative in the sense that it's only an allegation nothing proved yet so move on, nothing to see. It's like saying the suspect fired twice before fleeing. Well I would suspect him too. Duh!

Impeachment is the natural course for the congress to counter Obama’s lawlessness - anything else is just the D.O.P.E. party theater.

It looks as if John Boehner will do anything to avoid doing his damned job.

Either impeach that SOB(Obama)or defund these monsters that he's creating.

At least show that your alive in the house.

When the Weeping Face of Boe files the paperwork and actually gets a case number, I'll believe it.

Until then, it's just more kabuki theater.

While I agree that something should be done, taking it to _court_ is not the solution.

Part of what is _wrong_ with USG is courts have become the defacto determiner of USConstitution law, e.g., disputes between USG branches.

Congress is a supposed to be an independent power within USG. How can USCongress submit branch disputes to a _mere_ - other branch of USG? They should use their own ability to subpoena and prosecute, leading to arrest and impeachment of unlawful Executive branch agents and agencies.

At the _very_ least, USConstitution is clear that SCOTUS is the court of origin for USConstitution issues, which would include inter-branch disputes.

Boehner still shirking his Constitutional duty. The remedy is to file articles of impeachment. What the Senate chooses to do is irrelevant, it doesn’t excuse the House from doing their job. This is just political theater to get conservatives riled up for November. Obama doesn’t follow the Constitution, he could care less what a judge or court might say.

Agree. It isn't the duty of Scotus to fill in for congress. Thanks to the 17th Amendment we have redundant democratic houses in congress. All of them are wary of making any decision that could inflame the passions of any constituents and jeopardize their reelection this fall.

The hundred year effect of the 17th has made the congress institutionally incapable of doing its duty.

‘And the courts will tell him that if Congress believes that the President is acting illegally and unconstitutionally, then it will be up to Congress to impeach, try, and remove him.

I agree. Can you imagine the chaos if the House would sue the President? This week and this issue, next week and another issue. The Founders did, and chose to have an impeachment, trial and verdict as outlined in the Constitution.
This bogus lawsuit is a diversion, distraction and ploy to cover ideological agreement of Mr. Boehner and the Mainstream Republicans with Mr. Obama.
Would it not be in Mr. Obamas interest to draw this fiasco out as long as possible, milking all the possible humor out of the Republican suit?
Conservatives who support and finance Mainstream Republicans, deserve the political, social and economic whippings they have received. But wait, there may be more t come.

At least Boner is acknowledging Obama’s lawlessness, but then why would he even think of allowing any sort of immigration bill to be introduced, immigration being the area where Obama has probably been the most lawless.

He is trying to distract the base. Won’t work, Weeper.
