After the Clinton debacle, Republicans know they cannot win a politically-driven impeachment conviction, especially with any "charges" against Obama having even less substance than those against Slick Willie.
So, sue instead.
Isn't it funny how the GOP always talks about tort reform — except when it would hurt them?
And, gets hypocritical:
"What price do you place on the continuation of our system of checks and balances? What price do you put on the Constitution of the United States?" said Rep. Candice Miller, R-Mich. "My answer to each is 'priceless.'"Checks and balances are already in place. Democrats who control the Senate won't pass your idiocy, so you boo-hoo and sue.
So, Speaker Boo-Boo (he's got Yogi's voice but Boo-Boo's face), or RedFace, as I also call him, is suing Obama for "being the President."
Let's let RedFace speak for himself:
"This is not about impeachment -- it's about him faithfully executing the laws of this country," Boehner said.Now, let's translate. On paragraph No. 3? This is another It's OK If You're A Republican, of course, because RedFace never talked about suing Shrub Bush, who wrote more executive orders than Obama ever did.
The speaker alleged that the president not only has ignored the law but "brags about it," decrying what he described as "arrogance and incompetence."
Boehner had been weighing such a lawsuit in recent days, over concerns that Obama exceeded his constitutional authority with executive actions.
Paragraph No. 1?
Failure in "faithfully executing the laws of this country" would certainly be considered a high crime or misdemeanor, as it would be violating his oath of office. Therefore, per Article I, Section 2:
The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.You're that Speaker guy, you idiot.
So, you're chickenshit because you know you'll lose an impeachment, but you, like many a GOPer, has no problem with barratry, and with waste of taxpayer money, when it suits your own ends.
So, will Senate Democrats please sue Boehner for being Speaker of the House? C'mon, Harry Reid, do it!
