House Speaker John Boehner's promise to sue President Obama for unspecified "king-like" actions is not worrying the White House. At all. "You notice that he didn't specifically say what exactly he was objecting to," a smirking Obama told George Stephanopoulos in a new ABC interview. Defending his executive actions, the president said, "They've decided to sue me for doing my job," adding, "I'm not going to apologize for trying to do something while they're doing nothing." Republicans in Congress, he added in a speech today, "don't do anything except block me and call me names," completely overlooking their ability to file superfluous lawsuits.
