Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

U.S. President Barack Obama hosts a bipartisan meeting with Congressional leaders in the Roosevelt Room of White House to discuss the economy, November 16, 2012. Left of President Obama is Speaker of the House John Boehner. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; REU
Ginormous news from House Speaker GOP Conference Puppet John Boehner: He's going to sue President Obama. Why? Because, quoting from his weekly press conference carried on C-SPAN:
I believe the president is not faithfully executing the laws of our country.
Whoa! Obama is Lawbreaker-in-Chief, eh? Well, if that's the case, why not impeach the lawless renegade? Boehner didn't really have an answer for that, leaving his comments on impeachment to this:
This is not about impeachment. This is about his faithfully executing the laws of this country.
Hmm. Okay, so it's not about impeachment, it's just about whether or not President Obama is following the oath he took when he was sworn in as president, which is exactly the kind of argument Boehner needs to make if he wants to convince tea partier congressmen that impeachment shouldn't be on the table. Haha, who am I kidding. Might as well set the impeachment countdown clocks now.

Of course, there is one little detail that remains unresolved. What, specifically, will Boehner's lawsuit be about? To try to get an answer to that question, a reporter asked:

What specific executive actions are you planning to challenge in court?
Boehner's answer:
When I make that decision, I'll let you know.
Ah. So he's decided to sue the lawbreaker Obama. But he hasn't decided yet what laws Obama has broken. Obviously, it's because there are so freaking many.

Stay tuned.
