House Republicans voted to proceed with a lawsuit against President Obama on Wednesday, saying that his executive actions are so extreme that they violate the Constitution. (Oh yeah, suing him, that will show him...)(As a sidenote GOP House Republicans...you guys control the purse strings, YOU CAN DO A WHOLE LOT MORE THAN SUE THE PRESIDENT BUT LET'S NOT TALK ABOUT THAT....)
The nearly party-line vote — all Democrats voted against it, and all but five Republicans voted for it — further agitated an already polarized climate on Capitol Hill as both parties used the pending suit to try to rally support ahead of the November elections. (Yeah, it's called fundraising and it's a win-win for both sides. The Dems get to send letters to their constituents warning them about those rascally Republicans who are going to sue the president so please send money quick so we can fight them and the Republicans will send letters to their constituents warning them about those rascally Democrats who tried to block us from suing the president. Do tell us oh mighty ruling class how suing the president solves anything except for playing to the bases of your parties and making them think you are actually doing something....)
Halfway across the continent, Obama almost gloated at the prospect of being sued. ( Yes, because then he gets to use the issue as a "divide and conquer" issue and paints himself as a victim at a time when his polls numbers are falling like rocks so he can fund raise like a mofo...pardon my slang)
“They’re going to sue me for taking executive actions to help people. So they’re mad I’m doing my job,” Obama said in an economics speech in Kansas City, Mo. “And by the way, I’ve told them I’d be happy to do it with you. The only reason I’m doing it on my own is because you’re not doing anything,” he said of Congress.
The clash came a day before Congress is scheduled to begin a 51 / 2-week summer break and as must-pass bills on reshaping veterans’ health care and highway construction appeared headed for passage — while most everything else was not.
Yeah, those two issues they might pass have MASSIVE spending budgets so pay attention to those two things because while we are debating the issues of suing the president, congress is spending your money away...
