    ...there is nothing in your diary that supports this conclusion.

    This is actually the boldest step he could take it is also the step most likely to succeed because it is a pure political challenge involving the power of a President who is just been reelected against a very unpopular Congress. As such it is by far the most likely to succeed.
    And your diary totally ignores that the Republican don't give a shit.  About anything.  weather the Gov. shuts down or defaults of if they do something illigal.  In some Republican circles thay are praised when they say they will do these things to thwart the President.

    We Glory in war, in the shedding of human blood. What fools we are.

      Otherwise, we never would have had the vote at the end of last year, when Republicans finally stopped following the Hastert rule.  That's the thing:  Some of them finally blinked.
