Obama Taunts Republicans on Executive Orders: ‘So Sue Me!’

What is President Barack Obama’s message to Congressional Republicans in response to their concerns that he is usurping the powers of the legislative branch through countless executive orders?


“So sue me!”

Don’t worry Barack. John Boenher already is.

Here is the partial transcript from Barack Obama’s speech this week where he taunted Republicans:


As long as they insist on taking no action whatsoever that will help anybody, I’m going to keep on taking actions on my own that can help the middle class, like the actions I’ve already taken to speed up construction projects and attract new manufacturing jobs and lift workers’ wages and help students pay off their student loans. Middle-class families can’t wait for Republicans in Congress to do stuff. So sue me. As long as they’re doing nothing, I’m not going to apologize for trying to do something.”

For a supposed constitutional scholar, Professor Obama doesn’t seem to understand the critical importance of the separation of powers. It is up to the Congress to approve of Obama’s agenda, and up to the courts to decide if things are constitutional.

As the leader of the executive branch, it is Obama’s job to enforce the laws, instead of making them up as he goes along.

Congress’ inaction is actually a positive feature, not a flaw. For as unpopular as Congress is, the natural conflict between legislators makes the process deliberative and slow. Since government has a monopoly on the use of force, having an efficient law-producing machine in Washington, D.C. would be tyranny. Lovers of freedom should want Congress to take as little action as possible, which protects our liberty and keeps government out of our lives.

This abuse of power is more than enough for Obama to be impeached.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

How did this arrogant, creepy little PUNK ever get to be the President of the United States????
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Welfare recipients, hollywood glitterati, idealistic college students, and NYC power people voted for him ( and still like him). The pure conservatives thought Romney wasn't good enough, so they didn't vote. So here we all are.

1. He is a very good public speaker, with good wordsmiths feeding him the script.

2. Bush left no obvious successor.

3. Bush's economy collapsed.

Most voters pick what they perceive to be in their best interest.
