Obama’s irresponsible taunt: President increasingly willing to go at it alone: "So Sue Me" He says
New York Daily News ^ | 07/06/2013 | BY JONATHAN TURLEY

'So sue me,' he dares in a Rose Garden speech on Tuesday that he intends to expand, not reduce, his use of unilateral actions to circumvent Congress.

The unanimous decision of the Supreme Court late last month that President Obama violated the separation of powers in appointing officials is the type of decision that usually concentrates the mind of a chief executive.

Obama, however, appeared to double down on his strategy — stating in a Rose Garden speech on Tuesday that he intended to expand, not reduce, his use of unilateral actions to circumvent Congress.

Summing up his position, the President threw down the gauntlet at Congress: “So sue me.”

The moment was reminiscent of George W. Bush’s taunting Iraqi insurgents over 10 years ago by saying, “Bring ’em on.”

It was irresponsible bravado from a man who was not himself at the receiving end of IEDs and constant attacks that would go on to cost us thousands of military personnel. I imagine some lawyers at the Justice Department may feel the same way about Obama’s “sue me” taunt. They are the ones being hammered in federal courts over sweeping new interpretations and unilateral executive actions.

The renewed promise to go it alone is a familiar refrain from this President. He even pledged to take unilateral action to circumvent Congress in front of both Houses, in his State of the Union address this year — to the curious delight of half of Congress, which applauded wildly at the notion of being made irrelevant.

Barack Hussein Obama reminds me more of Idi Amin Dada each passing day. A regular two bit dictator.

Well, Kenya and Uganda are neighbors.

I wonder how many Americans under the age of 50 even know who Idi Amin was (he was ousted from power 35 years ago).

When I was a student I attended a film about Idi Amin which was shown at my university. A black man who was there was very upset over the movie being shown (it was an honest look at Idi Amin and therefore very negative)--apparently he did not like the idea of a black African leader being shown in a negative light. He wanted attention to be paid rather to "the Union of South Africa" (which had long ceased to be its official name, but was his way of not recognizing the legality of the Republic of South Africa).

You misspelled "ruining". Or is that just a typo?

So Idi Amin's followers were known as Idi-ots, who are the Obama followers?

World leaders heard Obama say, “So sue me”. He acts like a ten year old. How can anyone take him seriously?

Obama vs. Congress:

1. Obama: He says that this immigration mess is the dominant Republicans' Congress' fault, because it won't pass needed legislation.

2. Congress: On the other hand, Congress says that there are already immigration laws but Obama won't enforce them.

3. So, who is right? If Obama won't enforce the laws already on the books, could someone please list or explain the immigration laws that Obama ignores? Thanks.

So, this tyrant is not afraid of a lawsuit that will never happen. Maybe he should be afraid of the peasant uprising that is about to happen? The fool has no clue.

The Bush reference will give him cover. He is just taunting by insinuating “we thought it was OK then” even though Bush was talking to those we were in battle with, not those who represent the people of this country.

In truth, that is what he is saying, but there is no one in congress that has the courage. He is truly mocking them, they deserve it.

Agreed. Congress is largely impotent. It becomes increasingly obvious that both parties in congress care about their personal wealth and power above the will of the people. To paraphrase the declaration of independence congress has become “destructive” of our unalienable rights. And we all know where the declaration goes from there.

“SO SUE ME” ??

Who does he think he is, Nathan Detroit? Naww, he’s too foreign (and stupid) (and maybe young) to know who Nathan Detroit is.

“Whitehouse is no place for a crackhead.”

He ignores the problems in his life just like a drug addict.

His leadership style reveals that he continues to get stoned regularly.

“World leaders heard Obama say, “So sue me”. He acts like a ten year old. How can anyone take him seriously?”

Sometime ago I saw a collage of Obama making childish gestures. Imagine when putting your middle finger beside your nose and arching your index finger was funny. Age five to ten, I’d guess. I remember many of the collage stills when they were on video live, so they aren’t photo-shopped. Then he has himself photographed talking on the phone with Netanyahu so that the soles of his shoes are the most prominent thing in the shot. That’s a huge insult in middle eastern culture. Again, we see the boyish “secret” gesture. This isn’t some isolated holdover in his mentality. This is who he is, an arrested development child in a man’s body.

That's one definition of homosexuality.
