Wait! Wait!

They’re suing the President? What? Did he spill coffee in their laps?

Seriously, I am surrounded by writ twits and none of them understand that lawsuit. And they are damn smart writ twits.

  2. Introducing…
    The Man in Orange…
    Johhhnnnyyy Boehnor!!!

    “Gonna start of with a real crowd pleaser tonight. It’s a request from the Tea Party folks who want to get out their dollies and tea sets and set up around a table doing nothing while I sing “A Boy Named Sue.”

  3. Can’t wait to see the reaction of the judge! Also cannot wait to see what lawyers would be dumb enough to take this case. What a bunch of jackwagons all the way around!

  4. No standing. End of story. End of suit.

    Don A in Pennsyltucky, perfect! Your link to stonekettle presents all the GOP shenanigans.

    Not one for wishing anyone harm, so would it be wrong to hope Boehner has a non-fatal liver explosion, while his bile rains down on his Republican colleagues?

    Well, c’mon people! What the hell else have they got to do? It’s not like they want to do the work of the nation, y’know?

    Like a friend of mine said: Cirque de So-Lame. Ain’t it the truth, ain’t it the truth?

    A can of worms. The POTUS can now sue the House of Representatives for not doing their job.

    Angelo_Frank, brilliant! We the people sure have just cause in joining President Obama as a friend of the court suing Congress for their total abject failure in recognizing the will of the people.

    We want jobs, health care, immigration reform, education, infrastructure repairs, tax reforms, democratic elections and a sane response to global warming.

    While we are suing Congress, let’s nail them for their failure to impeach the 5-4 Robert’s Court.

    JAK Virginia, “Cirque de So-Lame™” You and your friend deserve the ™ for that wonderful insight and assessment.

  10. Tomorrow Harry Reid needs to put the Senate on record opposing the House lawsuit.

  11. Ain’t it funny how the T’s got all that Constitution stuff, like checks and balances, down pat when it seems to work in their favor. But oh how it sticks sideways in their collective craws when it doesn’t. “But hell, we’ll just sue him if it don’t work out right.” Jacka$$es. Lois was spot on!

    11
  12. They want Obama to implement faster a part of the law that they’ve voted 50 times to repeal. Yeah. That makes sense.

  13. Frivolous lawsuits were supposed to be fixed by torte reform. Oh well, so much for torte reform.

    13
  14. Or should I say Tort. But I love me some tortes.

    Even if they won their suit, who would enforce the decision?

    “John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it!”

  17. I’ve lived in this country a good number of years. Seen lots of wars, a few riots, and a lot of just general upheaval.

    What seemed, at one time, to separate us from the way some other countries, in the rest of the world, changed their governments… is that ours was a peaceful change, done at the ballot box, and not with bullets.

    And, once done, most of us went back to living our lives, and dealing with it. Crap…. we even recently survived (8) years under the dumbest U.S. President…. ever.

    I do not recall, until the majority of this country had the Gosh-awful nerve to elect anybody but an old white man as President…. that the Party who lost….. set about to do it’s best to tear the fabric of this country apart, and set neighbor against neighbor, and in some cases family members against family members. Not since the Civil War.

    Barack Obama’s legacy was set by John Roberts,……… during his first term in office, when he took the oath of office, and was sworn in as President of these whole damned United States.

    The Republicans are spinning their wheels. Besides which, they’re nuts.

    Don A: Than you so much for that link.
    Jim Wright has the gift all right, describing his attitude about current politics as “amused digust”. It’s a fantastic summary of the politicrap the Republicans have been dishing out since President Obama was elected.
    I particularly enjoyed his inclusion of a great quote from Blazing Saddles, ending in “…a$$ kickers, $hit kickers and Methodists.”
    And his description of Palin as an “attention whore” spoiling the Repub plan to disguise the impending impeachment of the President as a lawsuit “…Boehner does not expect to win.” My attitude toward this circus is more abject disgust.

  19. They sue because the can. (And they can’t do much else, like their job.)

    What is hysterical is that the GOP usually just hates lawyers. Until they don’t.

    19
  20. So what part of “elections have consequences”, which they were so happy parroting for 8 years, did they forget? We need to remind them of that.

    Miemaw … I love your comment because it is absolutely true.

    Actually, I love all the comments because they are all true!

  22. OldMayfly says:

    Repub tactics remind me of when I was 7 or so and a younger cousin said, “Let’s play a game.”

    “OK,” said I. “What is the game?”

    She said, “I’ll take the red blocks and you take the blue blocks.”

    “OK.” We did that.

    Then the 5-year-old announced, “Red wins.”

  23. Marge Wood says:

    Doesn’t someone need to reinstate ONION so the current events like Boeher suing the President for not doing what Boehner didn’t want him to do in the first place can be out there where the world can see it? Oh I forgot. We have the newspapers which carefully parrot Republican stew on their front pages, a lot, and who’d believe it except it’s in the paper?

  24. Just another way to waste time and money instead of doing anything to benefit our country. I’m disgusted, but not particularly amused (or surprised). They’ve been on vacation for years, and now they’re going on vacation.

  25. eyesoars says:

    So… they don’t want to do their jobs.

    And now they’ve gotten the brilliant idea of hiring it out to a bunch of lawyers? Nice work if you can get it…

    You’d think at least some of these nitwits might have read the constitution, but nooooooo. Next they’ll blame the judiciary when it’s laughed out of court.

  26. Have always enjoyed the old lawyer adage: “you can sue the Queen Mother for bastardy….if you have the filing fee”.

  27. Old lawyer adage: you can sue the Queen Mother for bastardy if you have the price of a filing fee.”

  29. daChipster says:

    Let’s sue him back:

    WHEREAS the 113th United States Congress was first convened on January 3, 2013, and
    WHEREAS John BOEHNER was elected Speaker of the House for the 113th Congress, and
    WHEREAS under BOEHNER this has been the most do-nothing Congress ever, and
    WHEREAS under BOEHNER our tax dollars have been wasted in pursuit of sham hearings fraudulently conducted over faux scandals solely for the political benefit of BOEHNER and the Republicans, and
    WHEREAS under BOEHNER our tax dollars have been further wasted in repeated useless votes against the Affordable Care Act (OBAMACARE) solely for the political benefit of BOEHNER and the Republicans, and
    WHEREAS under BOEHNER our tax dollars have not been spent to promote the general welfare of the taxpayers and other citizens and residents of the United States, as is enjoined by the Constitution of the United States,

    NOW, THEREFORE do we, the ownership, management, staff and patrons of THE WORLD’S MOST DANGEROUS BEAUTY SALON (TWMDBS) petition this honorable court to find BOEHNER and the Republicans in contempt of everyone and ask that BOEHNER and the Republicans be directed, required and compelled to refund to TWMDBS all federal income taxes, federal withholdings and any other associated federal penalties or fees for 2013 and 2014 OUT OF THEIR OWN PERSONAL ASSETS AND FUNDS for compensatory damages, as well as an extra million for each petitioner from alleged car thief, arsonist and insurance fraud Darrell ISSA (Major Douche, CA) simply because he deserves it, for punitive damages.

  31. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Bravo and thank you, daChipster. Spread the word, gang. daChipster is deserving of going viral with his latest spot on smack them in the snout answer to the lazy Republicans and crazies.

    maryelle, we sign with all the time we can afford and a lot extra, e-mailing, signing and donating. Then, we double down and make 2014 the biggest off year election ever, sharing rides, ensuring voter registrations, and doing what we can on the local level knocking on doors.

    daChipster, Juanita Jean and others have wonderful ideas to make 2014 a success. As we draw nearer to November, keep sharing the ideas and let’s get busy.

  32. Deacon Blue says:

    Comity. Look it up. But dig deeper than privileges and immunities. This isn’t the first time Congress has sued the executive branch. Didn’t get anywhere then either.

    Stare decisis, anyone?

    32
  33. maryelle says:

    Thanks, Deacon Blue, for stimulating my curiosity about the other lawsuits. Here’s a link describing them.
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2014/07/11/republicans-v-obama-and-other-lawsuits-against-presidents/

    Of particular note was the 2011 suit by Dennis Kucinich and 8 House members who sued president Obama for violating the War Powers Act by taking military action in Libya without consulting Congress.
    Verdict: No standing, thrown out.

  34. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    maryelle, I have some major chomps to take off the hides of alleged conservatives. To save Juanita Jean bandwidth, I’ll concede that through chumpy dump Reagan, and all the Trickle Down economic off budget war morons, declare it a major mess. No funds for their next war (Israel).

    There is no military solution. If any country should appreciate that fact, it should be the USA. We’re still dealing with the goober south that was seriously thumped in the Civil War.

  35. Yes! Where do we sign?
