Of course if we had a Republican president ruling by decree Pelosi would be leading the charge against him.

Via Politico:

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi charged that House Republicans are floating a lawsuit against President Barack Obama only to distract from the GOP’s do-nothing agenda.

Speaker John Boehner told Republicans this week that he is weighing a lawsuit over Obama’s use of executive action — a possibility Pelosi called “subterfuge.”

“They are doing nothing here so they have to give some aura of activity,” the California Democrat said. […]

But Pelosi said she hopes Beohner will ultimately decide not to go forward with a lawsuit and will act like an “adult.”
