    Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) says President Barack Obama, “will borrow the power that is needed to solve the problems of immigration.”

    Durbin made the comments at a press briefing on immigration last Thursday urging House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to bring an immigration bill onto the floor for a vote.

    "I don't know how much more time he thinks he needs, but I hope that Speaker Boehner will speak up today," Durbin said. "And if he does not, the president will borrow the power that is needed to solve the problems of immigration and he shouldn’t be sued as a result of it."

    Last week, Boehner announced a planned lawsuit that accuses President Obama of failing to carry out the laws passed by Congress and habitually overstepping his authority.

    There's a perfectly good word that states very specifically what Durbin really meant, "Usurp".

    The only power oboma needs to borrow is the power of the U.S. Military to defend our border from an illegal invading army.

    I guess the Empty Suit has a fourth name we didn't know about.

    His full name is Barack Hussein Palpatine Obama.

    Would that make Joe Biden the Jar Jar Binks of this administration?

    Borrowing, that'a a cute term, sort of like the Dems eternal "investment" when they talk about tax increases.

    It's an inconvenient truth that Dirty Harry won't allow any bill come up in front of the Senate anyway. It's a dirty plot to make the legislative branch look bad. Heck, they can do it all on their own, don't need dirty harry to "help" them.

    Borrow? From who or where? I'd ask if we get it back with interest, but I know it'd never come back.

    They act like they've never heard of "separation of powers".


    As far as the border, he's asking for a LOT of money to "fix" the problem, when it's a mess of his OWN making!

    Since they don't seem to understand the Constitution, or choose to ignore it or interpret in their own best interest, I guess it follows they wouldn't begin to understand "separation of powers."
