Armstrong Williams: Boehner Lawsuit Against Obama Can Succeed

House Speaker John Boehner's lawsuit against President Barack Obama for his use of executive power does have clout even though some critics say it is an empty gesture, says Newsmax TV's newest personality, Armstrong Williams.

"The Republicans learned a great lesson from the government shutdown,'' the conservative columnist told The Steve Malzberg Show'' on Newsmax TV.

"I don't think Boehner would be filing this lawsuit unless he did not have some kind of indication that he had a possibility for some victory — and even if it's not the definition of what we define as victory,'' Williams said Monday.

Williams, who will host "The Armstrong Williams Show'' on weekends on Newsmax TV, says Boehner conducted private polling that confirmed his belief that Obama is misusing his political power.

Obama has called the lawsuit "a stunt.''

"He's talked to some key people to realize they need to bring attention to the fact that this president has no regard for the Constitution, no regard for the rule of law, and this is a president that's just out of control,'' he said.

"John Boehner, who's tried to work with this president at the expense of the criticism of his own party, has finally said, 'I can't negotiate or trust the president to do what is in the best interest of the American people, so this is what I'm forced to do.'''
