Government That Cares More About Anything More Than Our Country

         
            All presidents are heckled throughout their presidencies. They are scrutinized and exposed. Verbally torn and thrown through most of the bad that hits our government. This is to be expected. However, no one in history has ever sued a president while he was in office. John Boehner (BAY'-nur), a Republican Senator from Ohio and the House Speaker, would like to be the first. Why?
           Obama is being accused of misusing his authority. According to an article released by the Huffington Post, Obama is "picking and choosing what portions of laws to enforce, sometimes by issuing executive orders." Executive orders are a controversial topic. This is because even though there is no provision in the Constitution for executive orders, the power is granted in Article II. Every president since George Washington has used them. Generally, to bypass Congress when they don't see eye to eye, or don't have the time to vote on a decision. Could this law-suit have anything to do with the Republicans meeting up to tank Obama's Presidency even though it might not be in the best interest of the country? Maybe.

            This is just another attempt to deface the President. Beyond finger-pointing this child, and his friends, are completely out of bounds. They have no ground to stand on. This will not be their last attempt, nor is it their first. This is just another government official that cares more about everything but our country. Another official that needs to go home. Suing the President? Do we really have time for that? Isn't Iraq a bigger problem? Maybe it's just me. This is just the opinion of one man.
