Skip to comments.Obama vows to act alone, taunts Republicans ["So sue me"]
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 cant 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.

Ding , second time!
Impeachment proceedings begin at 1000.
Done & done.
Pride goeth before a fall.
I will so enjoy seeing him fall.
IMPEACH HOLDER for a START!!!
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.
I will be listening to one of my favorite songs by John Mellencamp.
Crumbling down. . . . . And The walls came tumbling down. . .

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.
ohhhh... poor baby. are they not going along with everything you want?
But Johnny Cougar is a rabid leftist.
I keep thinking “how do we get rid of Obama”? Then it hit me - we don’t need to get rid of Obama - we need to get rid of Jarrett. Obama would deflate like a week-old birthday balloon.
Obama sounds like Gary Hart. And how did that work out?
Exactly!!! This country needs Jarrett out of the White House. How can that be accomplished?
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.
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?
Voodoo doll? Santaria spell? Maybe ship the illegals to the WH and she’ll get one of their diseases?
