Republicans: Obama violating Constitution,
but little can be done about it

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Washington Republicans on Sunday restated their argument that President Obama has violated the Constitution by using executive orders to alter the Affordable Care Act, but acknowledged they likely have no recourse or ability to stop another incident. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, told “Fox News Sunday” that congressional Republicans think the president abused the government’s separation of powers by using the executive orders to sidestep Congress and delay the law’s employer mandate. “The president knows this is wrong.” - Sen. Mike Lee - However, he said critics would have a tough time winning in court because Congress lacks

Comments:
The RINO´s have 2 ways to deal with this: use the debt ceiling as leverage and impeachment. They don´t have the intestinal fortitude to use either.

At any truck driver lounge in America you will find more wisdom and intellectual thought about what to do about the Thug than any college faculty lounge or in the halls of congress.

OP, I must disagree. RINOs have only one way (bend over). The Conservatives have several but not enough real support. :-(

I call BS. Soetoro is an accomplice to murder via Drone strikes, Benghazi and Fast and Furious. Not to even begin to mention the numerous other grievous Fraudulent acts he has committed. Any other person would have been arrested for all of this way before now.The problem is that the entire Government is corrupt beyond repair. It needs to be Nullified and started over. By ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

Violating the Constitution (the Separation of Powers) - can that be considered as "hurting" or an "injury" to ALL Americans, so that ANY American has legal standing to present the case? Maybe someone who knows more about the law than I do can shoot that idea down.

And, also, nothing will be done when this 2nd Tern is "extended" by days/years/forever...........
There are no detains in the Current Constitution as to how to remove a President from the Oval Office who says "No, I won´r go".

But when (and if) there is ever a Republican president, even with a Republican congress, Democrats and their media whore friends will find many things they can do about it.

There is plenty the can be done to address issues. The establishment republican are status quo, they try to pawn off that excuses equals action. Its OK with them to have the current state of affairs, in fact IMO, they rather enjoy it.
Being a bit older and having seen what was and could have been, I have no use for the herd of RINOs, their left wing of the rupublican party cohorts, nor the gop´s progressive extremists.
The current gop "leadership" has no inner strength, no fortitude, have no principles to which they would go all in for.
Putting myself in a younger person´s shoes, all I see are old, useless, tired, pampered, elitist opportunists trying to get re-elected. Pols of little integrity.
Nothing to inspire. The gop is rudderless and adrift. I am glad they cut the TP loose. I do not wish to stand in the ranks of such "men."

We can replace all of the use.ess Republicans in Congress and the Seante with representatives who will do something other than capitulate when the bad guys use the lily pulpit.

Is is why the Repubs will not win the Seante in 2014. Giving it to them will just make them come up with a new set of excuses why they can´t do what we want.

Useless

Saddle up Mitch McConnell´s mount and hoist and strap him into the saddle, sending him off like Paul Revere to spread the alarm to all and sundry! Nobody can fire up a crowd like Mitch!

Inability to find anywhere in America an individual sufficiently harmed by Obamacare to have legal standing is an absurdly risible excuse for the RINO’s doing nothing. Even if that were true, and it’s not, that doesn’t prevent the RINO’s from raising hell about Obama’s lawlessness, instead of pouting pathetically in the congressional cloak room.

And, if they’re really concerned about insufficient standing, how about a class action on behalf of 10 million layed off workers?

The RINO’s real concern is loss of A listing on the DC cocktail circuit and cloud of MSM slings and arrows.

It seems to me quite odd that damage needs to be shown to get the case into court. Presidents are not allowed to just make stuff up. When they do, it should be straight forward for it to be brought into a court and a legal decision made whether the presidential actions fall within law or not. As for standing, I would think any Rep. should have the standing to question whether the President was acting outside the law.

Why is there NO Republican attack on Democrats (Senate/House) up and down the line for protecting Obama. The drum beat should never stop, hit them over and over. Every interview the Republican should charge democrats for allowing this to happen. They keep keying on Obama and thats not going to work, if the drum beat gets loud enough they will turn on him for their own survival..

#16 - right you are - I fly the Bonnie Blue to remind others that it is the states that should hold the power that so closely regulates our lives - not the fed, it is their job to make sure the states play nice and to keep the Nation safe - at an arm´s length from its citizens.

If this is the republican party of today, we need a new Republican Party - one that understands the Constitution as written and intended - not simply wanting it to fulfill their dreams of power.

Please excuse my making a second comment, but I find it totally infuriating to keep hearing the utterly absurd excuse of lack of "standing" as a precondition for making a legal challenge here. EVERY American citizen has standing when it comes to the loss of a basic right enumerated in our constitution. EVERY American citizen is harmed.

There is no need to show a financial cost to the harm. Our life, liberty, and our pursuit of happiness is obstructed, subverted, and damaged. That´s enough to assert "standing."

If our courts, elected representatives, and government officials can´t understand that basic fact, they must be removed. Or else.

Of course the far-right solution is let the Senate stay in Dem hands - and with the filibuster a thing of the past, Obama will be able nominate any extremist he wishes to the supreme court. The system will continue to unglue.

That seems to be goal of the ´true conservative´ - bring the system crashing down and it will naturally rise from the ashes like a phoenix. These kitchen theoreticians don´t seem to understand that such a demise will take time - a lot of time - say a century. There is a lot resiliency left in our economic system. Not enough to save us but enough to drag out the pain a really long time. That will be about same the time it takes us to transform into a Mexico, and then into a Brazil, then Argentina and finally the far-left dream world, Venezuela. Then at least we can finally have those pitched battles in the streets. Bring lots of guns. The government armies will certainly have a lot.

As for next rising from the ashes, at least the TCs have the ashes part right.

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
