Monstermash: Impeachment is the ONLY remedy the Constitution provides for someone like Obama. The Courts do not have jurisdiction over the political acts of the President. Nor could they enforce any decree they made. Therefore, they are unlikely to even hear the case because they simply do not have jurisdiction.
RiffRaff: You're right that Boehner is no leader. In the Army, we would have said he was not fit to be a squad leader. Let's face it, he couldn't lead a group of horny teenagers into a cathouse -- much less know what to do when he got there. Which brings up the "taking action" bit. Yes, he's taking action, but, as usual with the GOP, it is the WRONG ACTION. The courts cannot force the executive branch to do ANYTHING. They have no way to enforce any ruling they make, so the ruling would be moot. Therefore, the Courts are not likely to even take the case. They simply do not have jurisdiction over the executive branch. There is a remedy for a tyrannical president. It is impeachment. It is time for the GOP to man up and do what is right for the nation.
Dyadd: Rule by judges? And when was the last federal judicial election? Eventually, Obama's term will expire. Judges sit for life.
If the separation of powers means anything, the Court will say it cannot rule on the political activity of another branch. The Constitution prescribes a remedy for the situation we are in. It is called IMPEACHMENT. It is time for the GOP to man up and do the right thing.

Geezer: I'll bet dollars to donuts that the GOP will NOT defund anything if they take the Senate. They don't want to defund things. They LOVE big government -- as long as it is big, GOP government. They even love socialized medicine. Why else would they have nominated Mr. Romneycare for president?
John: You're living in a fantasy world. Tens of millions want only the dole. A quick look at what Hollywood turns out will show that "the arts" are overwhelmingly leftist. And GWB got us into a war that we know cannot be won. Furthermore, you have no conception of what libertarianism is about if you think they are "progressives".
The GOP hasn't had any new ideas since Newt & many of HIS ideas were failures.

And the court will (very properly) refuse to hear the lawsuits because they do not have jurisdiction over the political actions of another branch of government. They will point out that the proper remedy is IMPEACHMENT.

Darby: Social Security is theft. Like it or not, FICA is just a tax & the money you paid in FICA taxes is long gone. There is no "Social Security Trust Fund" & they didn't put "your" money away somewhere. Every cent you collect is paid in by someone working TODAY.

Jeff: "All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States..." You're right. When FDR intimidated the Court, they decided to ignore the first word of article I. It says ALL legislative power shall be vested in Congress. This means that cannot delegate legislative power to alphabet agencies.

Cleric: Our nation, since FDR, has been built on envy and theft. These are sins. No nation built on sin can last.
