    the nearest I've ever heard them get to it is "the House decides what constitutes high crimes and misdemeanors" - in other words, they'll make something up when the time comes - and their base is just days away from deciding that the time is right now.  I expect Obama's Executive Order re immigration should do it.

    •  When you say an immigration EO should do it, I (5+ / 0-)

      feel compelled to make sure that you know it's perfectly legal for the executive branch to adjust how laws are executed through the use of rules that are published in the Federal Register. Sometimes people say EO in reference to something Obama did, but if you checked the complete list of his EOs, there's no such item.

      It matters. A lot.

      Do you know the particular item that the House Republicans found offensive enough to sue? There should be documentation of it. The President doesn't fall out of bed one morning, wave a wand and say I think I'll change immigration policy and it shall be so. There's a protocol for everything.

      Depending how a change is made, there's leeway for Congress to override it by taking a vote. But the GOP doesn't have the votes it needs in the Senate so it tries to enact its policies in other ways.

      work for Obama. If the GOP wants to send Obama out with unprecedented high poll numbers, they should impeach him. Clinton was impeached and left office with high numbers and he was one of the best Republican Presidents ever to hold the office as a member of the Democratic Party. ;)
