Let's recap. 2012 was a disaster for them. Repealing "Obamacare" (What is it? 50? 51 times? I lose count.) hasn't worked for them. Shutting down the government hasn't worked for them. Benghazi hasn't worked for them. The IRS "scandal" hasn't worked for them. "Bergdhal" hasn't worked for them. Hell, they can't even muster enough support to bring us into another war with Iraq (even Glenn Beck has abandoned them on that one). Just when you think the GOP has reached the bottom of their bottomless well of stupid, they manage to dig themselves a new "bottom", as John "tan-man" Boehner decides this past Wednesday to announce that he's suing the President for...being the President (while Black?).
The suit, to be filed by the House of Representatives later this summer, takes issue with executive actions Obama has taken on issues ranging from healthcare to energy to foreign policy, Boehner said. But he declined to be specific about which administration actions he would challenge.Since day one the GOP has actively worked to block Obama from being able to do anything that would help the American people. Yet despite their best effort, Obama has managed to outsmart, outwit, outplay, and outclass them at just about every turn. As a result we have, among other accomplishments, the Affordable Care Act, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and the end of Don't Ask/Don't Tell. This -- and the fact that they haven't been able to come up with anything on him that can even remotely be considered an "impeachable offense" -- has led to some considerable butt-hurt on the part of conservatives in DC. Add to this Boehner's mortal terror of the Tea-Party (just look what they did to Eric Cantor, and they LIKED him) and we can deduce that this suit is nothing more than a political temper tantrum that's designed to appease the base. A suit that will net them exactly...what the f--k.
"The Constitution makes it clear that the president's job is to faithfully execute the law. In my view, the president has not faithfully executed the law," Boehner told reporters.
Oh, and by the way, they're going to use taxpayer money to pay for it.
"This is not about impeachment, this is about his faithfully executing the laws of our country," Boehner said.So, let me get this straight. We don't have money to take care of our veterans, the elderly, or the poor, fix our roads or improve education, but we have money to continue stupid pointless wars, and for dumb-shit like THIS!
Jesus, take the wheel from these people, PLEASE! Amen.
