As they have most of the subpoenas issued by Congress. I don't understand how they can keep ignoring Congress like they do? Do these subpoenas not have any teeth or enforcement powers?
The Obama administration has snubbed a congressional subpoena in the investigation of a White House “drafting error” that suggested certain experts supported their decision to temporarily ban oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Interior Department says it will not turnover all of the requested documents and accused the House Resources Committee conducting oversight of the incident of violating the administration’s good faith effort to work with the panel.

Unless congress decides to impeach the president, they have no power over him. Since impeachment takes a 2/3 vote of both houses, it will never happen.

Unfortunately it is really simple. Obama is "black"

Until the Senate commie-crats are removed..

Wishful thinking at best. The R's could have super majorities in both Houses and they still would not have the stones to attempt impeachment; even if they had the legal grounds to do so.

Obama will continue to ignore the HR subpoenas.

Every single president since Nixon has ignored subpoenas they didn't want to answer. Post something new.

Is that some how an excuse for doing so?
