Heh.

An executive order is a directive to the executive, hence the name.
The House of Representatives is not only not part of the executive; its members are specifically forbidden from serving in the executive.

...Anyway, that's only reason 1 of, like... Many why this'd be unlawful.

TO WIT
-it'd be an attack on the separation of powers;
-it'd be an attack on the equality of the branches;
-the president does not have statutory authority to make such an order;
-it would undermine the constitutional scheme for impeachment;
-it would undermine the constitutional scheme for the origination of spending bills;
-it would prevent the Congress from operating bicamerally, which would stop it from doing most of what it's authorized to do;
-to that extent it would also breach the president's duty to see that the laws (including the Constitution, which empowers Congress to act) be faithfully executed...

etc., etc.

Democracy haters getting a hard at the prospect of Obama becoming a dictator? Why am I not surprised?

For the record, topics like these are considered acceptable discourse, but don't ever say the Park Service should be defunded.

Hear, hear.

By the way, Tails, the GOP actually did shut down the Parks Service. The "suspend the House of Representatives" suggestion, by contrast, was raised on an obscure Internet message board by a poster who (a) was obviously making it in jest and (b) who conceded right away that it would be unconstitutional.

SEE THE DIFFERENCE?

Typical liberal attitude...

would be probably the most unconstitutional thing ever done


Well Obama IS a tyrannical dictating tyrant who can't do anything but ignore the constitution with his tyranny.
