    House backs bill to sue president over laws

    I was just reading this and laughing at Obamas picture on Yahoo. He has that typical LWNJ dazed deer in the headlights look as if grasping to understand what reality is. Anyway:

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Casting Barack Obama as a president run amok, the House voted on Wednesday for a bill that would expedite congressional lawsuits against the chief executive for failure to enforce federal laws. The vote was 233-181

    Ignoring a White House veto threat, the GOP maintained that the bill was necessary as the president has selectively enforced the nation's laws.

    "Throughout the Obama presidency we have seen a pattern: President Obama circumvents Congress when he doesn't get his way," said Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

    Republicans also have assailed Obama for tougher action on the environment.

    "The president's dangerous search for expanded powers appears to be endless," said Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va.

    In urging support, Gowdy said Congress is "not held in high public esteem right now. Maybe we would be respected more if we respected ourselves."

    Too funny.....
