    Sue him and get EVERYTHING out in the open, on both sides of the isle.

    However, once this is settled, no matter who wins or loses....for f*cks sake....move on and start doing what you were elected to do.....DO YOUR F'ING JOB!

    Congress has done nothing for 6 years, and then wants to sue somebody for have the audacity to do something...anything...get off your fat lazy useless a$$es and do your job and no one would have to overstep their authority to do it for you.

    Not really, there are things they need to do... but what they actually do is just cost us tax payers money and achieves nothing....

    I want them to sue and lay everything out so that come 2014 and 2016 the American people will be so disgusted with the republican party that they actually vote them out.

    Another incredible, senseless, futile waste of time and taxpayer money. Meanwhile we have crumbling infrastructure and the President's jobs bill that Boehner refuses to bring up for a vote.

    You are not thinking this thing through. If Obama gets away with overstepping his authority, it sets precedence for future presidents, Republican and Democrat. Do you really want any president being allowed to do this?

    @HoraceGreely No. And please don't mistake me for an Obama supporter, as I'm someone who sees both sides to be corrupt, and abusing their power, Republican and Democrat alike. But I didn't want Bush overstepping his authority, or Clinton, or Bush Sr... and they all did. Where was congress then?

    I'm not questioning the legitimacy of Boehners claims, I'm questioning his motivations, and why he said nothing when Bush was doing the same crap. It appears to be political bickering more than it does "a quest for truth and justice."

    There is nothing more important than stopping blatantly un-Constitutional abuses of power.

    Only thing that would make it better if this ads clown would define all the unconditional programs Obama has added. He stated he would not defend them.

    This a frivolous lawsuit and a waste of tax payer dollars. There have been no illegal executive orders, and House Republicans should be more concerned with moving the country forward rather than trying to embarrass the President. Because right now they're doing neither, as an attorney I can honestly say this case wouldn't have merit in any court room.

    Nixon v. Fitzgerald, 1982 U.S. Supreme Court

    President "is entitled to absolute immunity from damages liability predicated on his official acts."

    More republican grandstanding. With all the problems this country has the GOP continues to waste tax payer money on bullshit like this.

    This is what you get when you vote (R).

    Would you want a Republican president to be able to re write any law any way he wants without congress voting on it?

    @HoraceGreely Obama has done less of this than pretty much any of his predecessors particularly than GW Bush. Let's face it the republicans had absolutely no problem at all when Bush did the same thing and the democrats didn't act like a bunch of whiny babies. This is just another cheap and costly stunt by Whiskey John Boehner and the tea party republicans to fire up their base.

    Hey here's an idea - if you want to rule try winning the elections.

    @PNWest so it's ok with you? A president can rewrite any law he chooses? I can't believe you went back to the blame bush argument. Lol.

    Good bring it to court let the evidence be presented and a decision rendered. Get it over with.

    Republicans should call a Constitutional Convention to Amend the Presidents Executive power instead of trying to act outside of law as they are doing.

    If Boehner wins, what will he get? A monetary settlement (which most likely be paid by taxpayers)? Could it lead to impeachment? If he loses, what happens? Wouldn't this possibly hurt Republicans in the upcoming election? Or will this go to trial in 2015?

    Hello "boner"... I don't care who sues Obama, unless my tax dollars are paying their salary to solve problems and legislate action, not make some symbolic legal move to defame your political opponents. I'd say the same crap if Obama was suing Boehner. DO YOUR JOB! We have an immigration crisis... both the right and the left are furious with immigration policy, and the best solutions appease both sides.. FIX IT. You Hate Obamacare Soooo much, I think it's lame too, but all you do is whine and stall legislative processes with your attempts to halt it, not offer better suggestions and reforms to improve it, not even to a conservative capitalist liking. Joe Biden is probably the most useless man in Washington, and you sir, are the most counter productive. Only 7% of America likes you sir, and If the people who paid me only liked me 7% of the time, I'd be fired. Go breath some carbon monoxide.

    sure - why not?

    It's not like the house is doing anything important any way.

    This keeps them busy in between furloughs.

    Anyone that defends President Obama's running amok of the constitution and unilaterally making changes to laws does not value our freedoms & protections. There is no doubt he is abusing his power. I think Boehner is doing the right thing, and I would support this if the president was from either party and abusing his power like President Obama is now.

    I think the lawsuit has a lot of merit. Obama does not have the authority to change or revise a law. It should have gone back through congress as an amendment. It does not matter that republicans wanted to repeal the law or wanted to delay this. Obama did over step his authority.

    Unfortunately it is necessary since this President seems unwilling to understand the US Constitution and who may change laws versus who has the job of faithfully executing the laws of the United States. I fully support the Speaker of the House, John Boehner.
