Boehner on Border Crisis: 'Doing Something is Better than Doing Nothing' (BARF ALERT!)
Breitbart.com ^ | 31 Jul 2014, | Caroline May

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congress must do something to alleviate the ongoing crisis at the border, and President Obama’s plan to take more unilateral action on immigration reform will make the crisis worse, House Speaker John Boehner argued Thursday.

“The crisis on the border is one of the president’s own making, but he still hasn’t learned his lesson,” Boehner told reporters at his weekly press conference. “Now he has threatened to rewrite the law and take more unilateral action on immigration in the coming months. Let me just be clear, such action would create an even greater incentive for more illegal crossing and make the crisis at our border even worse.”

Close the border. Send them all back.

The law requires some kind of due process first?

Then repeal those portions of the law.

Today.

That won’t pass. But they need to figure out what to do with the kids aready here and close the 2008 loophole. Doing nothing cedes Obama executive authority.

After nearly fours years of caving-in and then approving payment for everything that Obama has wanted, Speaker “Blank Check” Boehner has proven himself to be Obama’s primary enabler for Obama’s DEMOCRAT BROTHERHOOD GOVERNMENT.

The US House “Sue Obama” Bill defines Speaker Boehner’s political philosophy: TALK BIG, and DO NOTHING.

This “Sue Obama” House Bill will be quickly rejected by the Courts because Judges appointed by politicians in the Democrat Brotherhood Government, (DBG), have promised to not interfere with the goals of the DBG.

Speaker “Blank Check” Boehner is always willing to defer to the opinion of Judges appointed by Democrat Brotherhood Politicians.

Speaker “Blank Check” Boehner has convinced most voters in the Public and US House of Representatives that NOTHING CAN BE DONE to punish B. Hussein Obama for violating the US Constitution unless he is removed from Office by the US Senate.

IOW, Speaker Boehner, by doing nothing, Boehner violates his unique Constitutional Duty to “Control the Purse” or Impeach Obama, and thus is passing the buck to a Democrat-controlled US Senate that will never Remove Obama from Office.

Obama knows that as long as Boehner stays in as Speaker, then Obama has permission do whatever he wants to do, with no fear of punishment.

Boehner as Speaker is ESSENTIAL to permitting Obama to violate the US Constitution on a near daily basis.

Stupid and weak Boehner is, by far, “The best Speaker of the US House that the Democrat Party has ever had.”

Removal from Office can only come from the US Senate, and ONLY if the US House Impeaches BEFORE the US Senate even considers whether or not to bring an Impeachment to the Floor of the US Senate.

BTW, “stupid” people are those people who are incapable of learning, and Speaker Boehner and all those who refuse to use the Checks and Balances found in the US Constitution are TRULY STUPID, especially the Republican Member supporters of Boehner as Speaker in the US House of Representatives.

Something definitely needs to be done, but doing nothing is much better than doing something stupid.

The GOP losership plan is to hide under their desks and wait until November. After that hide under their desks and wait for 2016. There will be no substantive engagement of Obama while he is in the WH from the cut and run beltway GOP.

“In my view, doing something is better than doing nothing; the crisis on the border is going to continue until the president acts — and he is clearly not going to act — that means the Congress has to act,” Boehner said.
****************************************************************************************

Yes, SOMETHING does need to be done; but it has to be the RIGHT THING. Doing something that is the wrong thing or only part of the right thing is counterproductive. Do the right thing, eliminate that STUPID 2008 provision and SEAL THE BORDER AGAINST ILLEGALS.

Then, if that RIGHT THING goes no further, then the DemocRATS will own the problem lock, stock and barrel.

Do the RIGHT THING Boehner, it’s not that hard.

I know someone that is friends with him. The Boehner smokes and drinks all day.

He’s a clown. How did the republicans manage to get two clowns to lead both houses of congress?

Doing nothing is the better alternative. It will cost what it costs. Might as well have the states just pay for the services as opposed to getting a multi-Billion dollar boondoggle that gets siphoned leaving the states to pay anyway.

Don’t get me wrong, I am for storming Washington and jailing the political class.

So doe doing something, if he doesn't like it, he will just not sign it, or even worse sign it and ignore it.
