    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?

    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"

    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.
