Obama vows to act alone, taunts Republicans ["So sue me"]
AP ^ | 7/1/2014

Posted on 07/02/2014 3:08:43 AM PDT by markomalley

President Barack Obama defiantly dared congressional Republicans on Tuesday to try to block his efforts to act on his own and bypass a divided Congress that has thwarted his policy initiatives.

President Barack Obama speaks about transportation and the economy, Tuesday, July 1, 2014, at the Georgetown Waterfront Park in Washington. Gridlock in Washington will lead to gridlock across the country if lawmakers can’t quickly agree on how to pay for transportation programs, Obama administration officials warn. States will begin to feel the pain of cutbacks within weeks -- peak summer driving time. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak) "So sue me," he taunted on a sweltering day, as he pushed lawmakers to pay for road and bridge repairs. "I'm not going to apologize for trying to do something."

Obama struck an aggressive tone in the face of a lawsuit threat from House Speaker John Boehner and in the wake of two defeats before the Supreme Court, including a unanimous decision from the court that he overreached when he appointed members of the National Labor Relations Board while the Senate was in recess.

How do you treat a bad dog that tears up the furniture, craps all over the carpet, bites visitors, and on occasion, jumps over the fence to chase cars?

Several strategies may include, but are not limited to, you might neuter him, or put him on a very short leash in the back yard, or resort to smacking him with a newspaper each time he behaves inappropriately.

But for sure, you separate him from the bad pack he gets out and runs with. Start by impeaching most of his cabinet, and bringing criminal charges against his most immediate assistants, “advisors” and support liaison people who go out front and do his lying for him.

Isolation is often extremely effective. Even if it means Joe Biden has to serve as Acting President.

We already gave you infrastructure money, Bub. Remember the stimulus? We have immigration laws now that you won’t enforce.

I sense desperation in the content of this bluster, let alone the tone.

I know staunch liberals who don’t like this “I’m going to go it alone” threats and actions. Liberals have always been opposed to executive power, and they’re beginning to see the writing on the wall, IMHO.

Bluster is how Obama compensates for what he must be seeing as embarrassing defeats. The tough talk may be satisfying a personal psychological need, but it’s not benefitting him politically.

Here's a vindictive, half-educated autodidact with an ax to grind....and the world has met THIS type before. Why the hesitation to deal with it as it should be dealt with?

We didn't get enough blood, discord, hatred and destruction the first time around?

“I sense desperation in the content of this bluster, let alone the tone.”

It is anger; he knows he makes Carter look like Reagan, and that outside of his handlers and sycophants the truth is evident everywhere that his terms have been an economic disaster. “His” people (his father’s people) have fallen even further into poverty, despair, and violence, and his name will forever be attached to this prolonged stagnation (the “blame Bush” nonsense stopped working years ago).

Obama knows that John Boehner is nothing more than a spineless jellyfish and has been nothing more than a go along to get along his entire career.

They are thinking of filing a lawsuit???????????

Why don’t they really do something QUICK like start impeachment proceedings right now before it’s too late.

As a matter of fact, I think it is too late.

To House:
If you impeach and/or rescind funding - actions in your power - and then the voters crush you in November - we are doomed as a country having the rule of law and three braches of government.

So, if you have the evidence and see the need now, WHY WAIT?

Impeachment proceedings are an exercise in futility.

It did not get rid of the rolling disaster that was the Clinton White House, and probably only set the stain as a permanent mark in the fabric.

And the Republicans got burned badly for the effort, a number of really good men got bulldozed aside in the aftermath.

When the Republicans mounted a field of candidates in 2000, they were given a choice from among Dan Quayle, Gary Bauer, Steve Forbes, Orrin Hatch, Alan Keyes, John McCain, and George Bush. Bush became the overwhelming favorite quickly, and only Alan Keyes stayed in contention until July. It was a matter of choosing the “least bad” from among the crowd, and not on any distinguishing virtue. Dr. Keyes was perhaps the most knowledgeable of the entire bunch, but he was given short shrift very early on, and never gained the momentum he should have had based on his ability and accomplishments.

If you shoot at the king, better the hell not miss. But you CAN take out the king’s satraps and food-tasters....

If Boehner has anything resembling cojones, he publicly states: “ Since this President has shown his utter contempt for the Constitution, Congress and our freedoms, the House will not pass another continuing resolution, nor any budget, nor any debt limit increase, nor any regime-proposed legislation. Any government shutdown is on his head.

When the President stops his present course of action, we can talk.”

Not so coincidentally, Andrew Jackson was the first Democrat President.

America took it's first huge lurch away from our Constitutional Republic with him.

Odumbo’s time has been “up” for a long time but he hasn’t been notified just yet.

Why does Congress not cut off ALL funding to the odumbo’s, his policies and actions? If he doesn’t have the funding, he’s frozen in his tracks which we all know is LONG OVERDUE!

Agree. Jackson was the first true “populist” president-—and that’s not good. Think “Occupy Wall Street,” for that’s what happened. Like Obama, Jackson abandoned all civility and respect for the office, his followers trashing the White House in a drunken frenzy, so much so that Jackson had to leave his own inauguration party and go eat alone in a nearby inn. His followers within a few years did really bright things like banning all banks in some states, forcing the Cherokee out of Georgia, and enforcing the disastrous “Tariff of Abominations.”

and, I might add - you can also deny the public administrative entities such as Homeland Security, IRS, INS, NLRB and HHS of their funding because the lawless Chief Executive is using the entities as political weapons against his perceived opponents - We the People.

Quit feeding the dog until he's too weak to make trouble.

The House has the means to do the above but not the will under Boehner's leadership.

The impeachment failure of Clinton (removal) should have absolutely no bearing on the corrective actions needed to restrain Obama. It's like saying, "well the last time the sewer backed up we almost got it fixed but not quite, therefore this time we'll just have to live with it.

Boehner is too weak in his leadership skills to do what he needs to do - get his whip to get the votes to defund those public entities which Obama uses as political weapons against the public - Homeland Security, INS, EPA, IRS and NLRB to name a few. . .

Boehner is the worst possible SOTH to have at this time in history.

the Articles of Impeachment are long past due to come to the floor for a vote - send them to the Senate and let them defend the lawless Chief Executive
