    But there's an argument that the President is being hypocritical about the reach of executive power as well.  He was against it when GWB did it.

    And the fact that Speaker Pelosi did not file suit does not say anything, one way or the other, about whether a lawsuit filed by Speaker Boehner has merit.  The fact that I did, or did not, choose to sue over an issue does not make your lawsuit have merit or not have merit.

    As I said above, on first glance, it appears to me that if the Speaker does file suit, the Administration may well argue to a Court that if the Speaker thinks the President is exceeding his powers, the Speaker's only remedy under the Constitution is to institute impeachment proceedings -- that a lawsuit is not the way to go.

      Sure you are!!!  Because you and the rest of the WASP-nation were not crying foul when Dubya was doing it.  But now...now since we have a black President that is actually trying to focus on America and keep us out of conflicts...now you have something to say.
