As teabaggers pray for deliverance from the "imperial" president, the "weeper" of the House finally claims to hear their pain.
Yes, John Boehner (R-Ohio), plans on suing President Obama over his "misuse" of "executive orders." Such a lawsuit would be a first for Congress.
For those who drool at any tidbit from Fox News or hate radio, they are certain that President Obama has issued more executive orders than any other president in history.
It is true that President Obama has issued far more executive orders than any African-American president in our history.
Yet, when compared with presidents who were not African-American, he is somewhat of a laggard.
The Brookings Institution, a liberal think-tank, reported in January that President Obama has been issuing executive orders at the slowest rate since Grover Cleveland, who was president in the 1800s.
In fact, President Obama has issued only 171 such orders so far. Meanwhile, W. issued 291 and Reagan did 381.
It would take a lot of executive ordering for President Obama to even reach W.'s level.
But, facts don't really matter anymore.
Conservative white Americans are desperate to get that black man out of the White House.
They'll stoop to anything.
Hopefully, this is their low point.
