Democratic analyst Liz Chadderdon criticized House Speaker John Boehner, saying on Newsmax TV's "America's Forum" he’s only threatening legal action against President Barack Obama to stay relevant.

"In the wake of [the Virginia primary loss of House Majority Leader Eric] Cantor, what Boehner knows is there is no piece of legislation he can get through his caucus ever again," she said.

"Nothing is going to get done," she said. "We are at a complete stalemate and therefore the only thing Boehner can do is to attack the presidency and apparently file a lawsuit against the president of the United States because he can't actually do his job as speaker which is to pass legislation."

Chadderdon and Javier Manjarres, political blogger and editor of Shark-Tank.com, debated Boehner’s announcement that the GOP may sue Obama for abusing his executive power.

Manjarres said that Boehner is trying to hang onto his leadership position and the lawsuit might help him "win brownie points" with conservatives. Chadderdon fired back that Boehner has zero support from tea party-aligned Republicans and without that, he’s dead on arrival.

Manjarres and Chadderdon agreed that Boehner is quickly losing support among his own ranks, though they differed over the issue of executive orders.

Chadderdon said that Obama’s use of such orders falls in line with the last four presidents who have served two terms. All had the "exact same number" of executive orders at this point in their two year term, she said. Manjarres said that it’s about "quality, not quantity."

"It's not about how many executive orders you've passed it's the quality of the executive order, what type of executive orders," he said. "Here he has executive orders against gun control, immigration reform. These are big issues that affect all Americans."
