Obama Broke Politics Again: Sent John Boehner An Email That Got Him Hopping Mad!

Oh, Barack Hussein Obama, do you never tire of Breaking Politics™?

Boehner [...]

Obama Expected To Take Executive Action To Help The Undocumented While Congress Vacations

While Congress is off playing on its five-week recess, President Obama will do what John Boehner told him to do: take executive action on immigration.

Congress Is Gone, And Good Riddance

They’re off for five weeks, so nothing will get done. Oh wait…how will we be able to tell the difference? The problem isn’t Republicans versus Democrats. It’s Republicans versus Republicans. The 113th Congress this week took another step toward ignominy as one of the least productive, most divided in history. Vocal Republicans were empowered, virtually [...]

Boehner: Impeachment A ‘Scam’ Started By Democrats

House Speaker John Boehner is in denial that extreme elements of his own party, which are increasing in number, is where impeachment talk began, and continues.

Boehner’s Lawsuit Against Obama Begins

The House Speaker is suing specifically over President Obama’s 2013 decision to delay implementation of the employer mandate in the Affordable Care Act. This is ironic, given that the last thing Boehner and Republicans wanted was a mandate in the Affordable Care Act. Or the Affordable Care Act. Boehner’s office released a draft document on Thursday of [...]

Boehner: ‘I disagree’ with Sarah Palin on impeaching Obama

House Speaker John Boehner was wise to speak out about Sarah Palin’s “impeach Obama” media tour. Two words was all it took on Wednesday for House Speaker John Boehner to shoot down fellow Republican Sarah Palin’s call to impeach President Barack Obama. “I disagree,” Boehner told reporters at a regular press briefing. Palin, the former [...]

House Republicans Want To Make Lawsuit Against Obama Into Political Theater

And that’s what it is: a show. What it is not is a serious political play that will do anyone any good. And it will backfire on a party best known for just saying “no.” Said a GOP aide: “In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it. But that is [...]

The Futility Of The Boehner Lawsuit

The lawsuit by Speaker Boehner against the President has always had the hallmarks of a political stunt.  To anyone who studies the law, however, it is clear that it has no real substantive basis: So, even if Obama was refusing to enforce the law, as Boehner suggests, successful litigation of the matter could prove difficult.
