Let's recap.  2012 was a disaster for them.  Repealing "Obamacare" (What is it?  50?  51 times? I lose count.) hasn't worked for them.  Shutting down the government hasn't worked for them.  Benghazi hasn't worked for them.  The IRS "scandal" hasn't worked for them.  "Bergdhal" hasn't worked for them.  Hell, they can't even muster enough support to bring us into another war with Iraq (even Glenn Beck has abandoned them on that one).  Just when you think the GOP has reached the bottom of their bottomless well of stupid, they manage to dig themselves a new "bottom", as John "tan-man" Boehner decides this past Wednesday to announce that he's suing the President for...being the President (while Black?).

The suit, to be filed by the House of Representatives later this summer, takes issue with executive actions Obama has taken on issues ranging from healthcare to energy to foreign policy, Boehner said. But he declined to be specific about which administration actions he would challenge.

"The Constitution makes it clear that the president's job is to faithfully execute the law. In my view, the president has not faithfully executed the law," Boehner told reporters.

Since day one the GOP has actively worked to block Obama from being able to do anything that would help the American people.  Yet despite their best effort, Obama has managed to outsmart, outwit, outplay, and outclass them at just about every turn.  As a result we have, among other accomplishments, the Affordable Care Act, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and the end of Don't Ask/Don't Tell.  This -- and the fact that they haven't been able to come up with anything on him that can even remotely be considered an "impeachable offense" -- has led to some considerable butt-hurt on the part of conservatives in DC.  Add to this Boehner's mortal terror of the Tea-Party (just look what they did to Eric Cantor, and they LIKED him) and we can deduce that this suit is nothing more than a political temper tantrum that's designed to appease the base.  A suit that will net them exactly...what the f--k.

Oh, and by the way, they're going to use taxpayer money to pay for it.

"This is not about impeachment, this is about his faithfully executing the laws of our country," Boehner said.
So, let me get this straight.  We don't have money to take care of our veterans, the elderly, or the poor, fix our roads or improve education, but we have money to continue stupid pointless wars, and for dumb-shit like THIS!

Jesus, take the wheel from these people, PLEASE!  Amen.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
