Obama Laughs Off Republican Threαt to Sue Him

President Obama mocked a threαt by House Speaker John Boehner to sue him for signing newObama_O'Reilly executive orders.

“They don’t do anything except block me and call me names,” Obama said during a speech in Minnesota on Friday.

Obama is facing a potential lawsuit from Republicans over a claim that he is overstepping his executive authority. The president is on the campaign trail to support congressional Democrats since polls indicate that they could be in danger of losing the U.S. Senate.

President Obama has recently signed several executive orders since he’s been unable to negotiate with a Republican controlled House of Representatives. Republicans are outraged that Obama is going it alone and bypassing Congress.

“So we take these actions, and now Republicans are mad at me for taking these actions. They’re not doing anything and then they’re mad at me for doing something. I’m not sure which of the things I’ve done they find most offensive, but they’ve decided they’re going to sue me for doing my job,” Obama said.

“The American people, their elected representatives, and the Supreme Court have all expressed serious concerns about the president’s failure to follow the Constitution,” said Boehner’s spokesman of Obama’s remarks.

Again, Obama is attempting to paint Republicans as not acting in the best interest of the American people. With all the issues facing Americans, Democrats have driven home the case that a taxpayer funded lawsuit should not be on the agenda of Republican leaders.

Obama also said that Republican antics “drive me nuts.” He continued: “Sometimes I’m supposed to be, you know, politic about how I say things, but I’m finding lately that I just want to say what’s on my mind.”

  1. Bohnner and All Republicans – Be Gone – If Obama were white all this shit you start would not happen. You hate him so much that you are going to trip up your own selves – Wait till November you and your stupid antics will go down the drain with the water. Dumb, racists asses!!

  2. This is bad news Mark Mayfield killed himself. But the public and especially those who did not graduate from college should be surprised this guy was a lawyer and TP leader – a racist group. Remember this was an educated man with a head stuffed with legal knowledge. He should have known that TP is a racist group with tax reduction pretext as mission. Now I believe racism is a disease like cancer. I thought people who graduated from college are more aware of their environment than those who did not. It seems some college and non-college graduates behave the same and participate in stupid activities like being in TP. No doubt Jesse Ventura ruled Minnesota and now we have Walker ruling Wisconsin despite they never graduated from college. We have brilliant college graduates in Wisconsin. I am not surprised sometimes we have federal district and 7th appeal court dumb rulings which are sometimes caught and reversed by the US Supreme Court. Is that not sad we have dumb college graduate? Any Rebuttal!

  3. The VA hospital whistleblower was lucky not to be fired. VA hospital problems have been there long before President Obama. Potential whistleblowers were afraid of being fired. A year ago I wrote a posting regarding whistleblowers and their fates. I was concerned on some of 7th Court rulings which I believed enabled corruption in government and private sector establishments. For instance, I read a 7th circuit case No. 11-2437 where McArdle, a new principle at a school, was fired by the school district’s board for reporting to police that her supervisor, Davis, was stealing school funds. Amazing the 7th circuit judges sided with the board decision to fire McArdle. I believe such decisions by judge MANION and ROVNER, both Republican appointed judges, discourage and put fear in employees to report misdeeds by their supervisors. And we are seeing a lot of supervisors or bosses going for years misusing public funds without being reported by their subordinates. Recently an Illinois controller went for 10 years stealing millions from the city. Her staff knew it but feared reporting her. In Wisconsin some legislators went for years using public funds for political campaigns. Their employees knew it but feared to be fired. At last one employee took a chance; and reported to the district attorney. Three legislators went to prison. The employee who had been fired for reporting was eventually given back her job. But she was out of a job for a year. Thanks God the case was in state court. Had it been in federal court these legislators would have gone free; and reporting employee would be without a job today. As another example in 2001 a Wisconsin political appointee gave himself a pay-raise illegally. The personnel director knew it but would not dare report him to police – fear being fired. It’s was only after the political employee left the personnel director reported him to police. This guy was prosecuted and ordered to return the money he had overpaid himself illegally. Look how the federal judge in Milwaukee ruled on Scott Walker case –dismissed. We don’t know what secrets and abuses there are in federal district courts and appellate court for the 7th Circuit. There should be audits in those courts. In October of 2008 the Louisiana Supreme Court ordered review of all cases rejected by court because those who filed did not have an attorney. The practice was revealed in a suicide note by the staffer charged with carrying out the injustice. So Republicans and TPs should not whine today about purported scandals. They should blame Republican appointed federal judges who have planted fear in potential whistleblowers. In fact that is why we still have racial discrimination and retaliation in work places. Republican appointed federal judges don’t believe supervisors can abuse funds, retaliate or discriminate against people for their skins. What goes around may come back and bite you. Repubs and TPs should now shut up.

  4. Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing slightly research on that. And he in fact bought me lunch as I identified it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch!
