    House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said that he has "great concerns" that President Obama may be exceeding his constitutional authority in ordering his administration to adjust regulations surrounding "underwater" mortgages and student loans, saying, "this idea that you are just going to go around the Congress is ... almost laughable."

    "I thought we were a nation of laws and that our country was governed by our Constitution," Boehner said Thursday on the "Laura Ingraham Show."

    The Speaker went on to caution that Republicans in Congress were keeping "a very close eye on the administration to make sure they are following the law and following the Constitution."
    Obama announced a series of programs this week that would enable those with mortgage or student loan debt to refinance to more favorable terms and repayment plans. The administration says such action was necessary after Republicans blocked the president's jobs plan proposal to stimulate the economy.

    Why doesn't he write an article of impeachment, instead of going on a talk show?

    Kind of an odd position to take:

    -- We're watching to see if they do anything unconstitutional

    -- But we can't identify anything unconstitutional they've done

    -- But we think that they're doing something unconstitutional anyway

    Because "Boner" is full of shit that's why. And stupid partisan Conservatives just eat it up, that's why it was served on talk radio.

    Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul are the only Reps I know of that have openly talked of impeaching Obama up to this point. In fact Kucinich has started proceedings to that end which were ignored by Almighty "Boner the Tanned One".

    Congress is the ONLY Federal Branch of Government allowed to forgive Federal debt. The President can NOT use signing statements to unconstitutionally forgive US debt.

    Of course the House won't do anything about this either, just like everything else.

    So you seem to not have a problem with what obama is doing? Aren't you the one that likes to use court rulings in all your post to support what you say?

    I'm wondering why you only seem to blame republicans for everything and never a democrat? Oh that's right it does no good to blame the democrats because they will never change and continue as they always do. People who support democrats are useful idiots.
