Complying with a law that is fully implemented and in effect compared with delaying partial implementation of a new law is two different things.

Name a single successful lawsuit in American history that is of close precedent to what they are proposing?

If not, I call this suit by Boehner just more right wing Birther-ism. I get to call bullshit. The lawsuit will almost certainly fail, and should fail, for lack of congressional standing."
Boehner's lawsuit demands that the unpopular mandate be enforced, while Obama argues that he should have the flexibility to delay it.

Merely because Obama waived or extended some deadline in implementation of a new law does not mean he has done something illegal. The Constitution calls on the president to make sure that the laws are "faithfully executed." Within “faithfully executing” and implementing a new law it is within his rights as President to implement it in a realistic manner even if that includes a delay.

Anybody can sue anybody over anything including a ham sandwich. Being successful is a whole different matter.

You just go hide and watch what happens.

And please do not post something from the Huffington Post, I want your own personal points of view on these matters.
This news should make you Obama hater’s love him.

<quoted text>
You phony. No need to look very far, It's the very post you cite above (15112). Cut & Run's post that you said was well stated. A post built on the premise that one could lie unknowingly.
So now....tell everyone....because Cut & Run is long gone and has left you flailing in the wind like the coward he is.......just how can one lie UNKNOWINGLY ???

House vote to sue Obama
http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2014/roll468.xml
All political bull. The House has no standing in court to sue and the lawsuit will be thrown out.
Too bad after repealing the ACA 50 plus times and now suing the President over wanting the ACA implemented faster that the House did not have time in four years to pass one jobs jobs jobs bill. Remember their last mid-term battle cry of jobs jobs jobs??
Yet the amazing thing of this foolish spending of tax dollars is that the very people who at one time wanted the ACA postponed now want it fully implemented.
The house has passed many bills HARRY will not let them up for vote in the senate. Get your facts straight.

Immigration.
For the most part the border is “secure” if we can agree on what secure means. The vast majority of those who are illegally coming into the USA are caught at the border. Secure does not mean that illegals are not showing up by bus loads and having to be dealt with. All of the children at the center of this matter were apprehended by the Border Patrol and are in custody.
Much of the problem today stems from a law that President Bush signed where by kids have to be dealt with different than adults. President Obama cannot sent them right back home due to that law that is already in place.
The crisis today was created when Congress refused to act --- either to repeal the law Bush signed or provide the funds so that the law can be complied with fully. No one likely expected the influx of kids that showed up.
Yet, I will say again that this problem is not completely of Obama's making. The law that he HAS to obey was passed before he was elected. He does not have the unilateral power to change that law. Only Congress does. So why does Congress not do it? All it would take is for a member of the Republican controlled House to introduce a bill, the House vote on it, pass it, and send it to the Senate, where Republicans and Democrats could vote together to pass it and send it to the president for his signature. If --and only if-- he vetoed the bill would Obama then be responsible for the problem.
Did Obama likely add to the influx of kids when he by executive order allowed some kids who were brought here as children and have lived here for some period of time remain? Yes. But what he did does not apply to those kids now showing up at the border. So the blame for Obama is questionable and more likely a caused by false information being spread in other countries about that executive overs.
There is plenty of blame to go around on the issue of illegal immigration and political parties who are in power doing little or nothing about it.
My policy on illegal immigration is to give them due process but sent them home. Shut off the jobs and fine those who employ them. Be humane, treat them with respect and help them return to their country of origin.
As for problems in Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran. First I don’t know that he has not paid attention to those problems and I’m not sure that actions you feel should be done. Each country is somewhat a different issue. But no I’m not interested in unfunded wars that last forever. President Bush destabilized the area and now they will settle the matter.


I noticed you still want to place almost the entire blame on Bush, and the Republicans when in fact how many bills have been knocked down, and not passed by the biggest obstructionist in Govt. namely Harry Reid, even though some have had a modicum of bi partisian support, Reid is not only part of the problem, he is most of the problem and I believe he is even more of a partisan then this president, so perhaps you can find it in your mind to lay some of the blame on him also, as both parties are culpable for this mess, and will not be rectified until both parties come to some kind of Détente. No one wants an endless war, but this presidents foreign, and domestic policies leaves much to be desired by many Americans and it should scare all who are aware of the problems, even those so called millenials, who are mostly young, urban partisans.

He does not have the legal authority to delay a law THUS ILLEGAL. Remember the republicans asked to delay it to work out the problems and OBAMA said NO. Now Obama is eating crow saying he must delay the law to work out the problems. Ha ha ha. Hey wasn't it YOU who claimed the border law bound Obamas hands because he MUST follow the law?

You & the rest of the Obama hater can just hide and watch what happens and all of you will get a cheap education. Not that it will be remembered. Hate for the pure sake of hating to see a half black man as President has no bounds.

The Administration has not postponed the employer mandate out of policy opposition to the ACA, nor to the specific provision itself. Thus, it's misleading to characterize the action as a "refusal to enforce."

Rather, the President has authorized a minor temporary course correction regarding individual ACA provisions, necessary in his Administration's judgment to faithfully execute the overall statute, other related laws, and the purposes of the ACA's framers.

As a legal as well as a practical matter, that's well within his job description.

I'm sure you are likely correct.

Yet the total opposition to everything and anything President Obama wants to do is unprecedented..

It seems they are willing to do a total shut down of the government so that he cannot accomplish anything.

I'm sure they will hate Hillary too but at least she can throw some insults back without being called "up pied".

The total craziness of those being elected to Congress is amazing.

Take a look at the latest Republican stupidity.

It’s amazing that even the nuts cannot see the stupidity.

Boehner Encourages Obama To Take Executive Action,---------One Day After Voting To Sue Obama Over Executive Action.

Hours before Congress broke for the August recess, House Republicans claimed that the President could use executive action to fix the border situation with unaccompanied children fleeing violence in the Central American countries of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. In a press statement released Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and other House Republican leaders indicated that President Obama could address the crisis “without the need for congressional action,” a statement tinged with some irony given that just the day before, House Republicans had slammed the President with a lawsuit claiming executive overreach.

Boehner Wants Obama to Take Executive Action, You Know, the Thing He's Suing Over

House Speaker John Boehner and other GOP leaders suggested that President Obama use his executive powers, "without the need for congressional action," to address the border control crisis.

The statement released by House leadership is a rather curios one given that the House just voted to sue Obama for his use of executive actions.

http://politix.topix.com/story/13387-boehner-...

Yup they are sure going to win a lawsuit over him using executive powers when Congress refuses – cannot act and then tells him to go use his executive powers because they are helpless bunch lead by insanity.

Then listen to them bitch and moan when he acts.

First they sue Obama for using executive privilege when implementing and putting a new healthcare system into effect.

Yup the same healthcare law they did not want implemented at all and repealed 50 times.
THEN
Second they then turnaround and tell Obama to implement by executive action immigration policies that they cannot agree on or even vote on.
BUT
Third if he does act they will bitch and moan that he did it while they were on vacation.

Go figure.

It would seem that some of you Obama haters should at some point see the light and recognize the pure stupidity and hate that is really going on.

Typical liberal, trying to make excuses for failure. I don't care his color, I care about him being a failure to do what he promised for this country and citizens.
The president CAN"T authorize changes in LAW. Again YOU claimed he MUST obey laws when it come to the border yet can DELAY other laws.

Ha ha ha just like forcing him to obey his own law. Forcing the fool to face the piper and back up his claims of he can do this but can't do that. The great thing is Obama was given enough rope to hang himself.

He wanted Obamacare in place with no delays so now he is forced to do just that to show the failures the republicans knew were there all along but he refused to allow to be fixed first. Now the border where he claimed he had "executive power" to do what he wants is now forced to show if he really can or just blowing smoke. Of course the republicans are just giving him more rope to see him hang a little lower.

Obama and Reed wanted to force the house to do it their way so now here it is, what you gonna do now? Is that plate of crow good?

Ha ha ha YOUR king has no clothes.

Election Lab, our midterm elections forecast, has been updated with a host of new features, including — most importantly — an updated forecast. Our model currently gives Republicans an 86 percent chance of winning a Senate majority.

The updated forecast for the House is nothing surprising. In line with what we’ve previously written, we estimate that the Democrats have less than a 1 percent chance of taking the House.

Ha ha ha. Elections across the country PROVES democrats are failing where it counts """"electi ons".

Democrats in tough re-election races don't want to be seen with President Barack Obama.

The Hill reports that Democratic campaign advisors are telling candidates to avoid being photographed with him so Republicans can't use those pictures in their own campaign ads.

And some Democrats are talking about their unhappiness with the president's policies, including his failure to visit the border in the current immigration crisis.

"It's a no-brainer ...the second term has been a bit of a disaster, his approval ratings are the lowest of his presidency, and Washington is in disarray," one advisor who works for a senator up for re-election told The Hill.

Gallup has the president's approval rating at 43 percent and his disapproval rating at 52 percent.

The paper points out that if Republicans retake control of the Senate, it'll be seen as a repudiation of Obama and his agenda.

I Don’t Know This Guy
Democrats in red states are panicking about Obama showing up to campaign for them.

http://www.politico.com/story/2014/02/barack-...

The White House and Senate Democrats are preparing an extensive midterm campaign strategy built around one unavoidable fact: Hardly any candidates in the most competitive states want President Barack Obama anywhere near them.

http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/obama-democr...

With Obama's approval ratings down to about 43 percent and the president still struggling with criticism of the troubled rollout of his signature healthcare law, some Democrats up for reelection do not want to be seen with the president at campaign events in their states.

At a private meeting with Senate Democrats in Washington last week, Obama said he understood and did not feel insulted, said one senator, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

"The president realizes some Democrats will have a better chance of winning without him around," the senator said.
