.. yippie !! ..

.. yea , I am happy about this .

.. Florida 13 is a ” purple ” district . It had been held by a Republican [C.W. ” Bill ” Young]] for 43 years until Young died late last year . Both sides cleared the field for their preferred candidates (Alexandra Sink for the DemoCraps , and the winner , David Jolly , for the Republicans) .

.. it is a single county district , being entirely within the confines of Pinellas County in Florida . For those who do not know , that is the Tampa / Saint Petersburg area [Tampa is in Hillsborough county , while Saint Pete is in Pinellas] .

.. It is because he is worried about the moral and legal precedents that POTUS is setting . The unilateral changes to ObamaCrapCare , for example , are actions that a President should have submitted to Congress . Obama did none of those things . He made those changes by himself , by executive fiat …

.. so , Professor Turley gave POTUS a justified butt – ripping in front of the House Judiciary Subcommittee . He also presented them with a stark choice . You have to take action to stop POTUS from siphoning your power away …
