House Speaker John Boehner Wednesday told reporters that he plans to sue President Barack Obama over his use of executive action.

"I am," the Speaker said when asked if he was planning to initiate a lawsuit.

"You know the constitution makes it clear that the president’s job is to faithfully execute the laws and in my view the President has not faithfully executed the laws," Boehner added at a news conference on Capitol Hill.

Poor Boehner.  He's got a steering wheel jammed up his ass, and the teabillies are driving him all over town.   :lulz:

I'm just starting to think that the Republicans REALLY don't want the presidency in 2016.

In further tales of Boehner Makes A Boner?
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

I can't say I especially like how executive orders are abused, but a much simpler fix would be to simply overturn the requirement for a supermajority Congressional vote to overturn an executive order.

But then, this isn't about Presidential overreach, is it?

No.  It is about "energizing their base".  You know, the strategy that worked for them so well in the last two presidential elections?

If Congress knew what they were doing, they could attempt to ratify an amendment that eliminates the use of executive orders, which are currently granted by judiciary proceedings from, oh, 250 years ago, and are actually not in the Constitution. If they don't like them that much, they can really really for reals get rid of them, and even override a presidential veto to do it.


...Then again, they'd have to actually know how to government, and that's hard. So they'll just sue instead.
