biden's part in this was multifold.
First, time consuming smoke an mirrors to get us past the holidays.
Second, create a reason to have a little ink for the 2016 election cycle.
Third, you've hit the nail on the head with respect to Congress committing political suicide, which is the exact reason for the executive order strategy. In both the 2014 and 2016 election cycles, our Congressional members can claim anything they want, as far as the reelection campaign trail goes, if soetoro uses and X-order. In Bart Simpson's famous words, "I didn't do it!"
I mean after all, look how we got all those "obamacare" supporters out of office since 2008.
(Didn't happen, while stumping for reelection they used the excuse of being told martial law would be imposed and the sheeple bought it.)
It will be the same thing with this x-order from soetoro. They learned back in '93-'95. Now they have the perfect end around play as far as reelections in the future. (I won't go off topic about crooked voting machines setting the deck for reelections as well.)
