    You can however be impeached by a congress that continues to obsess about your presidency. The we will shut down this country until we get ……something crowd. Thanks to Rep. Stutzman for summing it all up.

    No one’s being impeached. Just sued.

    That’s correct Boehner and Congress are suing Obama. In order to sue someone, you need to show harm to yourself, otherwise you don’t have the standing to sue.
    How has any action or inaction of the President personally harmed Mr. Boehner or any member of Congress, pray tell?

    I do believe there is the possibility of making that case. I read an article a few weeks back about this issue, and if they can show they have been harmed as a result of Obama’s actions, then they have the legal grounds to sue. I apologize for being vague, but there is legal standing in there somewhere. Wisdom? Dunno about that.

    Also, it’s worth noting, that Boehner has specifically stated they are not going to impeach Obama, despite Obama’s numerous executive overreaches and blatant violations of the separation of power (Yes, any time he modifies anything related to the PPACA without congressional approval, he is violating that separation).

    I hate this cartoon, especially considering the fact that the hardest-non-working-Congress-in-history of the Republic have suceeded in screwing with his policies and any efforts at running the country.A 4% eco boost in the last quarter is EVERY REPUBLICAN’S WORST NIGHTMARE! Heaven forbid this country thrive while a Dem is the Prez.

    Fire the Congress and get someone in who knows how to actually help the country by solving problems. I am sick an tired of all this political crap. I am really sick and tired of seeing the same Super Pac TV propaganda ad for the hundredth time.

    To majormarj; There is a reason why they are called the opposition; is to have a counter balance. It’s their job. Democrats would and have done the same for any republican president. The question is how effective were they?

    Let us remember that there are three branches of government, That makes Obama 1/3 of the problems were having

    More’s the pity. How about if we throw in the completely corrupt part? The pathological lying? The brainlessness? Having the morals of a goat? Let me know when we’ve reached impeachment level. Nixon went down for far less than the Obamanation has been allowed to get away with, which clearly demonstrates the blind fanaticism his followers exercise.

    " Nixon went down for far less…"

    I don’t think Mr. Obama has committed accessory after the fact or obstruction of justice like Mr. Nixon. Or obstruction of justice and perjury like Mr. Clinton. I haven’t seen any certifiable “high crimes or misdemeanors” from Mr. Obama.

    ‘How has any action or inaction of the President personally harmed Mr. Boehner or any member of Congress, pray tell?’

    That decision will be made based on whose lawyer is more expensive: Boehner’s or Obama’s.

    Personally I say we should all file a class action lawsuit against all of them. But we probably can’t afford to hire a lawyer as good as theirs.

    “No one’s being impeached. Just sued.”

    and who will wind up paying the bill? for both the prosecution and the defense?

    (Hint: neither the prosecution nor the defense.) And who will not find time to do any work while the case is being tried? And who will continue to be a very visible example of government waste and fraud?

    “There is a reason why they are called the opposition; is to have a counter balance. It’s their job.”

    I beg to differ. While I agree that all points of view should be considered before creating policy, opposition for opposition’s sake is not the same as governing. And that’s the difference that I’ve seen since 2008. There has always been opposition, dirty political tricks, and posturing and grandstanding. But when there was a good idea, it was considered and generally passed (I’m being a little generous here, but it helps to illustrate the point).

    While I can agree that there are good reasons to oppose some of Obama’s initiatives, or at least parts of them, I see no value in the Republicans’ sworn oath to let nothing he wants see the light of day. It costs us all as a society and as a country when power and political clout are given higher priority than the needs of constituents.

    That’s true. Otherwise Bush would have been impeached long ago.

    @I Play One On TV

    A President must be willing to work with Congress to get his ideas passed. Working with Congress means sometimes accepting less than you wanted. It means allowing the opposition to introduce their spin, their suggestions, some nugget that allows them to show their constituents that Congress is looking out for them. When you flat out refuse to do so – when your mantra is my way or the highway – you have deadlock.
