    The do-nothings are the whole Democratic portion of the Senate, starting with Harry Reid.

    You are saying if there is an incumbent that I like and that votes the way that I want them to most of the time, then I should vote for their opponent. WHY?
    -
    No thanks – that seems VERY silly to me.
    The opponents in my local races are rich guys that are only interested in lowering THEIR tax rates!

    The incumbent here is Darryl Issa, He’ll probably be re-elected because his Gerrymandered districts loops in and around all the wealthy Republican enclaves – although you’d think that even the most jaded conservative would be sick of Issa’s crap.

    The Republican lawsuit is the least disruptive method of challenging executive overreaches by the Obama Administration which, if unchecked, will harm our Constitutional system. The House of Representatives should be applauded for their restraint for choosing to challenge the President’s unconstitutional behavior in a way that avoids power politics and allows each side to make their case.

    That’s some sort of joke, isn’t it?

    Please feel free to pay attention to how much this lawsuit will cost the American taxpayer, because Congress members will not contribute a dime to prosecute, and the President will not contribute a dime to defend.

    What’s to keep the President from suing the Congress for dereliction of duty? I would predict an equal chance of winning for either side.

    The first person who runs out of ideas is the first person who reaches for a weapon. In this case, the weapon is an attorney. And the taxpayers get to pay to continue the misery the spoiled kindergartners in Washington provide for us.

    I would indeed like to have that information, as I strongly suspect that the costs of litigating what amounts to an issue of law will be a small fraction of the costs that President Obama’s questionable executive actions have imposed on the American Economy. It will certainly cost much less than the legal costs the administration has incurred in enforcing these actions, which as you rightly note do not come out of the President’s pocket, but ours.

    The fact that he would have no case. On the facts it is not clear that Congress has been derelict in any duty (other than the Senate’s duty to pass a budget each year, but the Senate was in each instance controlled by Democrats so the President isn’t going to stick his head into that.). More importantly, there is no constitutional requirement that congress act. It may be the best and wisest course to do nothing (and certainly we would have been better off without the stimulus or the “affordable” care act). The President is vulnerable to this litigation because he is trying to overstep the constitutional limitations of his office.

    By that standard President Obama would be the man out of ideas, as he was the first to reach for the weapon of changing laws by executive fiat. Which, again, is not one of the powers given to the President under the U.S. Constitution.
