I sense Genuine Fear in the Administration’s, and more importantly The President’s, opposition to Boehner’s stupid law suit.
Why? It’s laughable…
Then it dawned on me…
It’s the Injunction Function.
Temporary Injunction n. a court order prohibiting an action by a party to a lawsuit until there has been a trial or other court action. A temporary injunction differs from a “temporary restraining order” which is a short-term, stop-gap injunction issued pending a hearing, at which time a temporary injunction may be ordered to be in force until trial. The purpose of a temporary injunction is to maintain the status quo and prevent irreparable damage or change before the legal questions are determined.
The courts are extremely important to the Left in forcing it’s ideas upon us. Friendly Liberal judges are the backbone of Socialism because they can, and do, issue injunctions restricting our Freedoms and enforcing regulations from Federal Government issued by fiat from the likes of the EPA.
The White House is afraid the courts will issue injunctions keeping the President from governing by Fiat. While an order from the court would not physically stop the President from doing what he is doing, it would cause a battle which might weaken the court’s power to enforce such orders. And the Progressives do not want that battle. That power is far too important to them.
In the End, the fear of Boehner’s Stupid Lawsuit is not so much that he could ‘win’ as it could seriously slow down the momentum Obama has enjoyed to date.
Compound that with the fact the courts have ruled against Unlimited Executive Power as of late and the Book Makers might have some odd’s to work with giving this a possibility of success.
May be, just may be this suit isn’t so stupid.
My only concern is if this action becomes successful, even marginally, the Republicans will do everything they can to give up and drop it. (Please excuse this cynicism which has been built on experience.)
