    Executive Limits: For those in and out of the administration who dismissed the House lawsuit against the president for unconstitutional and illegal action, the naming of Jonathan Turley as lead attorney means game on.
    Coming as President Obama prepares to extend his lawlessness and war on the Constitution by granting de facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, the timing of George Washington University law professor and constitutional scholar Turley being named lead attorney in the House lawsuit against the president is exquisite.
    Though he is a supporter of Obama and his policies, Turley is not a party hack as Jonathan Gruber is. He is a respected constitutional scholar and Democrat who is not willing to stand by as the Constitution, the document that gave birth and life to the world's oldest representative republic, is shredded as part of Obama's fundamental transformation of America. Unlike some of his contemporaries and most of the mainstream media, he took the House lawsuit seriously.
    The president's handling of ObamaCare is only one of the extralegal excesses of this administration that Turley warned about when he testified before the House Judiciary Committee. He called Obama's vow to rule by executive order "one of the greatest challenges to our constitutional system in the history of this country" and one that "threatens a fundamental change in how our country is governed."
    "The question represented by this lawsuit," Turley wrote Monday on his blog, "is whether we will live in a system of shared and equal powers, as required by our Constitution, or whether we will continue to see the rise of a dominant executive with sweeping unilateral powers. That is a question worthy of review and resolution in our federal courts."

    Turley was one of the first law professors to condemn, and harshly condemn, O'Bamma's illegal acts. As I recall Turley was very critical of Clinton also in the sex scandal.

    Turley was one of the most ardent opponents of O'Bamma's illegal executive actions!

    The Supreme Court may not grant standing to the Congress in a law suit. If my memory is correct I read that they have avoided getting involved in disputes between the Legislative and Executive branch. Someone mentioned this on Fox recently indicating that some other group might have a better chance. Could be the states, I don't know.

    I believe something must be done to reverse this act before the 2016 election or it may never be reversed.

    Saw Dr. Carson on O'Reilly tonight. He said what was needed was a strong border defense and then quit giving away the goodies that draw the illegals.
