    When the Supreme Court unanimously says you've over reached your authority, does that not count as breaking the law? And it's not like this is the first time the Supreme Court has had to smack down the President's abuse of power.

    Obama is aware of the dangers of indiscriminate use of that veto pen. Personally, I don't think he'll use it nearly as much as his supporters hope he will or as much as he is implying he will.

    I think it's a bluff.

    And that is a good thing. It will give the people a stark view of the differences between the two parties. The passed legislation from congress and perhaps the president's veto. Well, probably not a whole lot of perhaps. The Republicans saying this is the way the country should go, the president saying no. This would really give the people the some defining items to choose from.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    No, it does not. If it was it would be a felony or misdemeanor offense; it is neither. A Supreme Court decision doesn't impart some special status simply if it's unanimous. Presidential administrations have had their actions overturned throughout the years...none of those instances were examples of a President acting in an illegal fashion. Same goes for Obama. Nothing in our legal system magically makes it an illegal action simply because it's unanimous.

    Other. I agree with the principle involved, but it sets a dangerous precedent. Next time there's a Dem Congress and a GOP Pres....10 bucks says the same thing happens.

    At least that would be unquestionably within his Constitutional powers.

    Of course I approve. Anything that makes Republicans look like fools is a great thing for the country.

    What he should do is just cave to the GOP, give 'em anything and everything they want, then Americans will see the fruits of the GOP's labors, see that our prez is really a wet noodle, and say, well, he gave 'em what they wanted, we'll not vote R ever again. Use a bit of reverse stupidity on the R's.

    If the lawsuit is successful, nobody in their right mind would ever want to be a president again, 'cause EO's will get 'em in trouble. It's why the dems never followed through with impeaching Bush for war crimes, a barrel of worms would have been opened.

    Do we want to go down this road?

    depends

    do we want a president?

    or do we want an imperial monarch?
