15. So, let me get this straight

Republicans engage in massive obstructionism for 5+ years- they relentlessly block UP-OR-DOWN VOTES on nearly every piece of legislation and nominee- that ensures that nothing much gets done and then they have the chutzpah to file a lawsuit over the lawful use of executive orders and executive decision-making? Congressional Republicans really are lost at this point. A much better use of their time would be to actually try to get stuff done but they won't. A lawsuit is also dumb just because the Constitution already has a procedure for Congress to reign in a supposedly law-breaking POTUS and it's called "impeachment", which the Republicans don't apparently have the balls to try even though many of them like to fantasize about it in public and claim that they would do it only if they could think of some "high crime and misdemeanor" to charge President Obama with. Yet, they are filing a lawsuit that claims that he is trampling the Constitution but Boehner doesn't even have an example to cite and I don't have a clue as to what he is trying to accomplish with the lawsuit. It's all just bats**t insane crazy with the GOP now.

BTW I am not advocating impeachment, just pointing out that it is really the more appropriate "tool" for Congress to deal with POTUS.
