So anyway, "the man" continues to try to show the Negro in the White House who is really in charge.
In a test run to find out the mood for an impeachment battle, John Boehner and his pals are planning to sue the president. And today the supremes ruled that the Negro in chief is forgetting his place here in America.
"The US Supreme Court today limited a president's power to make recess appointments when the White House and the Senate are controlled by opposite parties, scaling back a presidential authority as old as the republic.
The case arose from a political dispute between President Obama and Senate Republicans, who claimed he had no authority to put three people on the National Labor Relations Board in January 2012 when the Senate was out of town.
He used a president's power, granted by the Constitution, to "fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate." But the Republicans said the Senate was not in recess at the time the appointments were made, because every three days a senator went into the chamber, gaveled it to order, and then immediately called a recess.

Oh my! Mr. President I feel your pain. What you have to understand is that rules that apply to other presidents do not necessarily apply to you.
As for the lawsuit, well.....
"The fact that they are considering a taxpayer-funded lawsuit against the president of the United States for doing his job, I think, is the kind of step that most Americans wouldn't support," Earnest said.
The suit would be filed on behalf of the House and its mere existence would likely set off a partisan struggle. Three Republicans and two comprise a bipartisan group charged with overseeing House legal matters.
The group must meet to approve filing a suit on behalf of the House, and a party-line vote is all but certain.
Boehner strongly brushed aside a question of whether impeachment proceedings could result from the suit. "This is not about impeachment. This is about his (Obama's) faithfully executing the laws of our country," he said."
When a politician like John Boehner says that something isn't about something; you just know that it is about that something.
Still, I think I speak for quite a few people in this country and say, bring it on.
