    You quoted that McConnel will not shut down the government. He has already surrendered to the Tyrant.

    McConnell: 'We will use the power of the purse' .....

    “It takes 60 votes to do a lot of things in the Senate, but there are some things we can do with 51 votes.”

    On the surface, that sounds rather positive. That means policy riders on the appropriations bills.
    Right. He cannot have it both ways. Either he is willing to offer small appropriations bills that defund the left or he capitulates. Given his history I expect the Establishment Republicans to make lots of noise and then to fold like an inexpensive tent.

I hope cooler heads will prevail in this. It's necessary just now.
    Any legislative action taken (even after January) requires the President's signature. A compromise with the President is going to be virtually impossible after the President has taken this EO action. There will be no compromise. A Republican bill to reform immigration would not meet the President's requirements, he would not sign it, and the EO would remain in place until legislation is passed on the President's terms. That's just the way it works. There is certainly little likelihood of both houses of congress overturning a veto.

    The EO stays unless judicial action is taken. An injunction could be issued by a lower court prohibiting the government from issuing the work permits and temporary resident card pending the outcome of the suit.

    I'm just laughing because obviously the comparison of Obama to HITLER is more appropriate..... After all, the lawsuit is about Obama delaying the employer healthcare mandate. If that's not a HITLER!!! type act, I don't know what is! "Tyrant" just doesn't quite capture the enormity of the evil at work here.

    So it begins. Suspecting this to go absolutely nowhere. Just another stunt. [/FONT][/COLOR]

    They won't win. Even if a judge rules in the House GOPs favor at the lower level, this will eventually make its way to the Supreme Court where it will be struck down as fibulas. Congress already has two Constitutional mechanisms to "correct" presidential actions or wrong-doings:

    1) Pass bills which is their primary enumerated power; and,

    2) Impeachment.

    If they truly believe the President has overstepped his bounds, IMPEACH HIM!

    If they truly believe that the EOs he has written fill those grey areas of a given law, CHANGE THE LAW or pass a bill that fixes the freakin' problem!!! But...

    DON'T WASTE THE PEOPLE'S TIME WITH THESE POLITICAL STUNTS!!!

    They don't have to Impeach.....they can write up a letter of Disapproval and Censure.



    Conservatives, States Set to Launch Legal Blitz Against Obama Over Immigration.....

    Opponents said there will likely be a three-pronged legal approach to stymie Obama's moves: Congress could sue the president for constitutional overreach, states could file lawsuits arguing the action strains local finances, or individuals could try to prove they've been harmed by the order. Just hours after the speech, an Arizona sheriff filed suit arguing the reform is unconstitutional.....snip~

    Well they did call up a bill and like all thought.....Reid and the Demos didn't let it make it to BO's desk. They did this before they went on break. So the Bills will start coming and Reid will be done playing head games.

    I didn't need that image.

    I'm not familiar with what that is. Is it like a "stern scolding"?
