Skip to comments.Barber: Republicans Believe They Have a Strong Case Obama Has Violated ‘Take Care Clause’ (VIDEO)

The Washington Free Beacons Ellison Barber discussed House Speaker John Boehners (R., Ohio) planned lawsuit against President Obama Friday, telling The Real Story her Republican sources flatly say they have a strong case that Obama has violated the Take Care Clause.
Theyre not worried about it at all, she said. I think they do believe they have a really strong case to say the president has violated the Take Care Cause. The reason why they are doing the employer mandate instead of immigration or some of the other ideas that we heard thrown around is they think that is the best legal challenge that they actually have according to their lawyers. I think theyre trying to be careful with it. Theyre trying to make a strong case.
Barber pointed out shed just received an email before the interview from the Democratic National Committee regarding the lawsuit, which is using it as a means of raising money. Obama himself has lampooned the lawsuit in recent speeches.
Theyre mocking to rile up their base and use it as a fundraising tool, and so far theyve been a little bit successful in that, Barber said.
Let’s not delude ourselves that whatever was said or done to Roberts the first time around is going to look like preschool compared to the pressure this time...
Let’s also not underestimate the GOPe in their ability to screw this up.
The what clause? Is that the same area where you have a right to free health care? Right next to the one that says you have a right to a high paying job regardless of your qualifications? Kinda near the one that says you have a right to own a house even if you bought it knowing there was no way you could ever pay for it. I sure must have missed some stuff in my civics classes way back in the day. What happened to “work your butt off and achieve something, lay on your butt and achieve nothing”?
You can’t fight City Hall
and you can’t sue the first black president of the United States (he’s a Constitutional scholar, you know!)
The GOP is a complete joke.
Barber is a top rate journalist. Highly intelligent.
And you don't mess around with Jim.
Good grief. While they are at it, they need to sue themselves for failing to follow the Constitution.
The Hell with Boehner and McCain. Impeach OBAMA NOW!
So, he’s stabbed the country in the heart and shot it in the head and we have a strong case that he didn’t wipe his feet when he came in.
Where do y’all think this is going to go?
Or for failing to fund all of Obama’s violations of the Constitution.
What I like about her in the video, was she talked fast enough to get her point across before she could be interrupted, that’s a rare talent, most of the time you never get to hear the interviewee’s point before the are cut off.
She is exceptionally good at this.
Of all the things they could go after they choose this flimsy, ephemeral, subjective thing??
Just impeach him than send him to prison.
Over the years I think Congress has seeded to much of its authority to the President. This President could care less and he shows it. Time for Congress to take the Bull by the horns and be adults.This Administration picks and chooses what laws to obey and who to Persecute. It has set a dangerous precedent and so has Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats.
Yeah, yeah, yeah...we’ve heard it all before...daily! The weasel GOPers aren’t going to do a damn thing, they know it, and we know it!
Every time I see video of Obama giving a speech he is backed by a sea of white female faces smiling and applauding his every word. Just like when he was campaigning in 08 and 12. Nothing has changed. It wasn’t the Blacks or voter fraud that got him reelected. It was the six hundred pound demographic elephant in the room nobody will acknowledge. The feminists and the schools and the media and hollyweird have done their job so now we have an electorate of emotional train wrecks voting in presidential elections without having a clue of what they are doing beyond how it “feels”.
I totally agree.... The Federal Government is completely corrupt...
You can't find a soul in that town that hasn't been bought and sold a dozen times over.....
He is the daddy they were forced to leave. He is their man
What is this they are calling the take care “clause”? If its referencing the part of Obamas job and oath that he “take care that the laws be faithfully executed” ? then it is more than a clause, it is an integral part of his job and oath. Calling it a clause will fool some people into thinking it is nothing but an afterthought or a meaningless addendum.
Oh, THAT one that says the cinc will perform his duties with all due care in regards to the constitution. Meh. That would be underneath the lyin’ king to let such trivial things such as this undermine his goals.
Thanks for the link in any case.
