RACHEL MADDOW: What's interesting, is that while it was the Republicans who voted today to sue President Obama, it is the Democrats who held a press conference about this vote today, because the Democrats cannot believe this is how Republicans want to spend Congress's time. To put a finer point on it, Democrats cannot believe their luck that this is how Republicans want to spend Congress's time. Because Democrats feel like this lawsuit thing shines a spotlight on Democrats and the president specifically trying to get stuff done, while all the Republicans want to do is try to destroy President Obama, and stop him from doing things. This is a matter, this lawsuit authorization is something that only Republicans voted for today. But on the House floor today, it was the Democrats who basically did cartwheels about it.
