    Absolutely nothing, but they've always got the racism card to play! I wonder if a lot of people are going to wake up one morning, though, and suddenly realize they've been conned, when it affects them? That will be something to see!

    Remember how quickly the Univision questions about his failures back in September 2012 was hushed up and buried by the MSM? And they're Hispanic!

    Long overdue. The executive is bound by laws, but they can operate outside of those laws as long as nobody calls them on it. I'm glad someone did. BTW I think this should have applied to W as well.

    Oh really? GW was far more abusive of executive power and even decided what torture was. How many calls for impeachment did he receive? ZERO. It must be because he was a Texan.

    Honestly this was going to happen sooner or later anyway. It was Dems that let this genie out of the bottle under the Bush Presidency when they technically weren't in recess while they were in recess. It was only a matter of time till a President called the Senate on it.

    Now it's time for the Courts to rule.

    I see no relationship with disagreeing with someone's actions or policies, and the color of their skin.

    I haven't seen anyone on here claim that his skin color has anything to do with it. You're the one who brought it up, perhaps you see his skin color first and foremost.....

    Quote from Scalia during the arguments, he was joking: “If you ignore the Constitution often enough, its meaning changes.”

    I would hope that someone from NE Ohio realizes Hispanic is white, not a race but an ethnicity, like EYE-talian, or Nordic.

    Given all the dim witted poster boys and speech makers at many TP gatherings I can see how some would see the extra dab of vitriol given to President Obama as race influenced. But mentioning the race thing doesn't diminish that for all the wild rhetoric and wailing, very little of what President Obama has done has been overturned.

    There is no threat to the Republic, the question isn't can the government violate search and seizure, nor is this about what the terrorists are legally to be held as, nor is this over when will Americans die in a formally declared war...

    It is over whether Congress was in recess when the President appointed people to his administration.

    You're the one that made it a point to highlight race, therefore only you can provide the explanation for why you did so.

    Why the highlighting of his race in your stated goal of the members of the house?
