Skip to comments.Obama: Boehnerís Lawsuit Against Me Is ĎA Stuntí
Posted on 06/27/2014 9:08:03 AM PDT by Citizen Zed
During an interview with ABCs Good Morning America on Friday, President Obama pushed back against House Speaker John Boehners (R-Ohio) announcement that he would file a lawsuit against him, saying that the move amounted to little more than a stunt.
The suit is a stunt what Ive told Speaker Boehner directly is: if youre really concerned about me taking too many executive actions, why dont you try and get something done through Congress?
Obama went on to slam the House Speaker for his inaction on immigration reform, saying that its outrageous that Boehner squawks every time he acts through executive orders because Boehner refuses to act on a bipartisan Senate bill that was passed last year.
Im not going to apologize for trying to do something while theyre doing nothing, Obama said.

It most likely is a stunt.
Unfortunately, I’m afraid that it IS just a stunt. If Boehner really meant it, he would have impeached Obama years ago.
It’s just another Boner distraction, to pretend that he’s doing his job.
Obama must have been reading FR. I swear, either the Dems are giving talking points to some posters here, or some faux FReepers are posting Dem talking points.
I don’t know many FR posters I saw yesterday saying that this was just a “stunt.” Bammy just has to read FR to know the best way to attack.
Let me agree with the Obamanation: Sure it’s a stunt because the courts are so packed with liberals that nothing can come of it.
Point abundantly proved.
The court will determine that Boehner does not have standing and throw it out. So, yes, Obama is correct.
It’s just another distraction to make the GOP-e’s constituency feel like their politicians are doing something, when in fact they aren’t.
What an arrogant jackass!
Harry Reid has stuffed his democrats in the Senate in the breach every time to stop anything that doesn't have the Obama stamp of approval on it.
Not one of these SOBs should have enough authority to run a playground.
Obama: Boehners Lawsuit Against Me Is A Stunt
I agree. If Boehner and the republican leadership were serious, they would start impeachment proceedings immediately.
He also did an interview with that Norah O’Donnell woman.
She was shaking her head up and down approvingly throughout the interview - it made me dizzy. I was waiting for her to ask Obama if she could kiss him.
I agree but...
Is it a “cunning stunt”?
2014 elections will not help. Neither will the 2016 elections (if we even have them....)
DON'T say that three times fast....
Serious question: how does this work, is it like passing 400 repeals of Obamacare? Does it need Senate approval? I would like to up know how a lawsuit like this works. Anyone?
“O’s” Presidency is a stunt
Depends on the company around you...
Obama is a scumbag.
President Obama is the fulfillment of Stephen Fetchit.
Impeach the King would be the only answer. Even then if the House won the impeachment it would die in the Senate. But at least Bonehead would show he did try something worthwhile.
After the Republicans take the Senate in November, things are going to get very bad for the Big Zero. There there will be multiple special prosecutors, multiple sets of hearings on corruption of all kinds and public scandals as a lead up to the 2016 election season.
What is likely to be unearthed will force Democrats who want to run for President to denounce Obama and will force others to gasp and say we had no idea how evil he was.
The Big Zero is in for a real hard lame duck 2 years and it is going to get much worse for him. He is just trying to delay what is out there to minimize his pain and shame.
PSY OPS 101.. How about Congress call Obama out on his ORCHESTRATING THIS INVASION WITH THE GOV'T OF MEXICO. What about the child escort contract from the DHS in January of this year? What about the notes on what to say if caught that the immigrants are using?
Team Obama CAUSED this humanitarian crisis, so they can USE THESE CHILDREN AS POLITICAL PAWNS TO JUSTIFY AMNESTY. Do they give Nobel Peace prizes for that?
BEWARE, REPUBLICANS.. THIS IS A MULTI-MILLION PERSON STRONG DEMOCRAT VOTER REGISTRATION DRIVE AHEAD OF THE NOVEMBER SENATORIAL ELECTIONS!!!!!
It’s vapor-litigation, at least until we actually see something filed with the court.
It will be interesting to see what relief is asked for.
“”because Boehner refuses to act on a bipartisan Senate bill that was passed last year.””
He forgot the number of bipartisan House bills passed that the Senate (REID) refuses to take up. Kind of lopsided of you, bozo!
MEMO TO WHITE HOUSE: It did not have to be come to this. You could have cooperated more and spoke more politely.
All three things are probably correct. Understand?
The Supreme Court case he just lost ROYALLY was a stunt, too. Right??
Obama declared Thursday that 99 percent of federal employees are not boneheads
Proving again that he’s truly a 1 percenter...
I am surprised that the crybaby with the pink tie even went this far.
It actually is a stunt... if the President is violating the law IMPEACH him.
My opinion is that Boehner is doing nothing more than trying to pander to Tea Party voters by posing a faux legal attack against Obama. The old "Look, I am trying, so vote GOPe routine".
Hey, I finally found something I could agree with this lying Marxist scum.
OH MY GOSH!!!!
obama said something... and IT’S THE TRUTH!!!
I guess there’s a first time for everything, huh?
Obama finally told the truth.
If Boner had a set he would immediately begin impeaching obama appointees and judges. Let’s begging Koskinen. That would be meaningful. Make the dems stand up for the IRS or vote to impeach.
I bet most of Obama’s judges and appointees are confirmed unanimously
Everyday we get closer to his replacement
Probably. Massive disinformation. The Alinsky technique.
The charges should include treason.
Of course it is a stunt. A suit couldn't possibly be adjudicated in the time remaining in Obama's term. But maybe the mainstream media will talk about what Obama has done. This could be a way to keep Obama from doing more stupid stuff.
Hey! Obama finally said something true!
Anything that calls attention to what he’s doing is not a worthless “stunt.” The only thing that seems to attract any media attention now is legal action, since it’s clear that Obama opponents (from the most conservative to the most liberal) can say what they want, and the media simply ignores it. But something concrete like a lawsuit might have more traction.
Civil suits don’t get much attention, but if this suit is accepted, it will be the first time that anybody is granted standing to challenge Obama, so even if it doesn’t get adjudicated, it will mean that the problem is acknowledged.
I honestly don’t know what else could be done. The pitchforks and torches meme is cute and lets people vent and makes them feel good, but realistically speaking, that’s another thing that’s not going to happen.
