Obama Says GOP Lawsuit
Will Cost Tax Dollars

ABC News, by Chris Good

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/12/2014 7:11:35 PM

In his weekly radio/YouTube address, President Obama derided House Republicans’ planned lawsuit against him, warning that GOP lawmakers will spend taxpayer dollars on a frivolous legal challenge. “It’s a political stunt that’s going to waste months of America’s time. And by the way, they’re going to pay for it using your hard-earned tax dollars,” Obama said. (Video) House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has orchestrated the beginnings of a lawsuit against the president over his use of executive authority. As the White House and the GOP-controlled House have failed to compromise on a slew of issues during Obama’s tenure, the president has

My problem with the Lawsuit is the constitution created three (somewhat) co-equal branches of government with specific powers. WHY IS THIS LAWSUIT COSTING TAXPAYERS MONEY? What branch of the government allocates this money? The congress has remedies for abuse already. Why ask one branch of government to take a side? As an article posted at this site said (paraphrasing), congress is bring a referee´s whistle to a gun fight. Congress should first exercise the power it has.

How about all those taxpayer dollars spent on unconstitutional agencies every year to harass people to comply with their rules they make up to justify their government high paying jobs or pay the penalty.

We´re talking Billions of dollars here.

Other than court costs - how much money?

WH counsel is already on payroll; the House no doubt has attorneys already on payroll. Borrow attorney´s from DOJ if necessary

WH has large staff.

If he´s really that concerned (1) behave himself; (2) give up his vacation.

Hillary Clinton has no accounting for over 600 million dollars. She just doesn´t know where it went. That is tax payers dollars.

How about all the tax dollars going to Mexico and they snob their nose at our laws and have a Marine they will not release and we continue to send Mexico money, our tax dollars.

I could go on, but you know the drill.
This will be the one time I am behind the tax dollars being used to sue Obama and I hope he is soundly announced guilty and pays heavily.

As opposed to all the law suits this administration has filed against the States? How much have we spent to keep voter identification lax enough? Or how much did we spend when a District Court of Appeals said the first moratorium on drilling was illegal and the administration change a few words and issued it again? Or defending Moratorium 2? Or the permitorium that followed that?

IMO Boehner´s lawsuit isn´t a good strategy, it´s a weak RINO strategy to make us think that he and the rest of the republican establishment clowns are putting up a fight against ObamaCare.

Either way the RINO idiots don´t know how to go on the offensive on Obama and his statement that the lawsuit will cost tax dollars. They are so dumb it´s embarrassing.

How many millions of dollars did Øvomit´s little trip down to Texas this week cost?

Considering that trip was a Demon-RAT fundraiser trip, I have no idea why the taxpayers have to pay for it.

However, Øvomit has no hesitation in spending tax dollars for anything he wants, so if it really bothers him, he can pay for his own defense out of his own pocket.

But I won´t hold my breath...

AUSTIN, Texas- Two Texans, one White House. Is the 2016 Republican campaign trail big enough? After plummeting from prime contender to political punchline three years ago, Gov. Rick Perry has spent months gearing up for a second run. And he´s turned his recent indictment on felony abuse-of-power charges into a campaign rallying cry. But even as Perry works to convince conservatives that he´ll be better at coping with the national spotlight this time, he´s increasingly bumping up against his state´s junior senator, tea party darling Ted Cruz, whose firebomb approach on Capitol Hill has grassroots activists clamoring for him to

President Obama was sent to the White House on promises of being different from his predecessor. But of late, he´s sounding a lot like George W. Bush. “America does not forget. Our reach is long. We are patient. Justice will be done,” Obama said this week when discussing the threat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria poses to U.S. citizens. The phrasing was reminiscent of Bush´s remarks after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when he said “whether we bring our enemies to justice, or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done."

President Obama is weighing a big-time executive action on immigration that has both Democrats and Republicans anxious. He´s also pursuing a major international climate-change agreement without ratification by Congress. And it´s not yet clear whether the White House will seek congressional authorization for military action in Syria that appears increasingly likely. Yes, we are finally entering into what could be a very big debate about executive authority -- and with the 2014 election just weeks away. ThIS debate was supposed to happen when House Republicans sued Obama over his having delayed a portion of Obamacare unilaterally. But if he does

The New York Times tried to keep the politicized hit job against Texas Gov. Rick Perry alive in Wednesday´s edition, insisting the dubious partisan indictment (from a Democratic district attorney´s office that has filed failed charges against prominent national GOP figures) actually has merit, with a "complicated back story" and "deep roots," while pouting that Perry´s team has had "substantial success in the court of public opinion" so far.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.— Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist continued his political comeback Tuesday as Democratic voters selected him as their nominee to challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott in Florida, one of four states where voters were choosing candidates for statewide office. Crist easily defeated former state Sen. Nan Rich, while Scott coasted in his own primary toward a general election matching the state’s last two Republican governors. Both have struggled with sagging approval ratings and run-ins with conservatives. “It’s a wonderful night,” Crist declared after accepting a concession call from Rich. Crist said the strong showing is a sign that Democrats

The leftist media have inflated the ego of the current regime… It’s how you get a Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing noble or prize worthy.
