    What statement? That they're hypocrites and or that they're are too focused on petty partisanship to do anything productive? Those are really the only statements being made by this move IMHO.

Now that we have a Democrat Bush, he's suddenly the arbitrator of everything that is evil in the world. He's a marxist, a fascist, a neo-nazi, a muslim, and a communist all rolled up into one. And, he's a hero to everyone that hated Bush.

    Hence why I hate political parties with a passion.
    And yet the rest of us have no trouble finding significant differences between their policies that have nothing to do with the letter next to their names. Maybe if you turned your passion away from hating parties, and examined the actual policy, you'd find important differences.

    If guilty it is better to have checked it and if not guilty, it is better too.

    I approve.

    The whole point of "balance of power" is to get them to work together and compromise.

    When you have Harry Reid that wont even bring house bills to a vote and a president that will veto anything that is not exactly to his liking, what recourse do Republicans have?

    The president's abuses of power are so flagrant that even democrats are mad.

    Someone needed to address this issue, the lawsuit is what the GOP choose as a party.
    I think Obama added some drama to it, but that's his style...Look at me, I'm a victim, just trying to do my job.

This lawsuit is just another example of that.
    Quick question, when was the last time Democrats initiated impeachment proceedings against a Republican?
    Trump Attacked A Syrian Airfield. Trump will be a one-term president.

    Change 'approve of' to 'care much about' and the answer is definitely 'no'.

    you would have a ****fit....as would most people on the left side of aisle

    he/she is overstepping their authority with such an executive order....it should never be allowed

    i want ALL presidents reigned in....not just this one....but the next, and the one after that

    let's actually follow the few rules we still do have under the constitution
    What has he done that is unconstitutional and illegal? What executive orders? What is this "point"?

    Actually, they're pretty much identical on everything. Foreign policy, immigration, drug policy, expansion of executive power, Bush wrote the Patriot Act while Obama extended it, government surveillance, the debt ceiling, both have significantly increased the national debt, civil liberties, and more. Face it: you like Obama because he's a Democrat. It's better to acknowledge it and fix it than to continue denying it.

    Here's an article you should look into:

    Which ones "violate the legal jurisdiction of the office"? There is a lot of vague terms here but no specifics.
