look, i grew up with pencils and erasers and ball point pens...

there are a number of cases decided by the supremes that dismissed claims on the basis of lack of standing...

try something like supreme court standing, and then i'm stuck, don't know what the other search terms would be: political, congress, i don't know...

cases where the legislature (and iirc congress) suing the executive and getting bounced out of court for lack of standing...

most legal commentators i've read seem to think congress will never get by the standing hurdle and some go so far as to suggest that congress is well aware of those cases so it does (despite it being a dem talking point) appear to be a political stunt...

fwiw, that's my opinion too...

chris matthews suggests that the speaker is pursuing the idea of a suit as an alternative short of calling for impeachment (which didn't help the repub cause much last time around)...

seems plausible to me...

unlike obama, the speaker is a seasoned politician...
