Obama taunts Republicans in speech: “So Sue Me!”

by Greg Campbell

“So sue me.” That’s the message President Obama has for conservatives and Republicans who have taken issue with his continual executive overreaches via executive orders.

Don’t worry, Barack, we are…
Obama taunted Republicans in a speech on Tuesday, deflecting criticism of his imperial presidency by shifting the blame onto Republicans who refuse to rubber-stamp his party’s agenda.

Obama stated, (emphasis added)

“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.”

The remark is particularly relevant because Speaker of the House John Boehner has announced that he is filing suit against the president for his continual overreaches. However, as the executive branch is the law enforcement branch of the government, the most lawless president in history would be tasked with enforcing actions against his office for his lawless actions.

Obama and other leading Democrats have blasted Republicans for a supposed obstructionism taking place on Capitol Hill. However, the Republicans control one house of Congress and the Democrats control the other. Because one house cannot come to terms with the other on several issues, the Democrats have joined with the liberal mainstream media in posturing that the GOP is responsible for obstruction on the Hill.

However, in truth, neither Obama nor his allies in the complicit media appear willing to admit that Democrats are refusing to deviate from tried-and-failed policies.

Further, even as Obama taunts Republicans, he omits from his line of thinking one simple fact: it is not the job of Congress to approve the president’s agenda. They are the lawmakers; the president is the law enforcer. Circumventing Congress is not an option and an offense for which the president ought to be impeached.
