That's Why

What's going on with that lawsuit Boehner said he was going to file?

Listen to him rattle on about "That's why, that's why, that's why" at 1:22:14, when he's asked about
impeaching the president, but it's a very different story when you go to Speaker Boehner's website.

You don't see any of his bloviating bullshit about about "suing the president is the right path to go down"
Wonder if it could have anything to do with this?  John Boehner Runs Away From His Unpopular Lawsuit Against Obama by Blaming Democrats
 They aren't going to win a lawsuit or an impeachment, because they don't have a leg to stand on. They have no evidence of a high crime or misdemeanor. "The Supreme Court has made it clear in recent decades that members of Congress have no standing to file constitutional lawsuits."
 Don't know how it can get any plainer than that Boehner.
" Legal experts say the merits of the case are dubious at best. For one thing, House Republicans would need to convince a court that they have “standing”—that is, they’ve suffered a specific, concrete harm from the delay of the employer mandate."

So lets recap. They don't have "standing" or any clear evidence of anything. However they can get a lot of attention just with their ability to bullshit. Wasting time, acting like they are outraged, yet still doing nothing. Which they are really good at. So, it looks like this whole episode of "The Speaker Boehner Show" will go nowhere. Because "there is no real precedent for Congress to sue the President," that's why.
