Republicans Vote to Sue Obama


US Politics & Gov't  (tags: lawsuit against obama )

House Republicans have decided to file a lawsuit that has almost no chance of getting standing and likely wouldn't even be finished until after Obama is out of office. Democrats are making out like bandits, with fundraising off this.

THAT DOES IT!!! Not one vote for a GOP candidate from me, not even for lieutenant dog catcher.

They're just trying to distract from the fact they haven't earned one cent of their pay in the last five years. As Obama said, "don't boo...VOTE".

From a strategic perspective, I'm actually quite pleased. The only thing they can find to use as pretense of justification is that Obama did what Republicans asked him to do. This will go far in identifying them to voters as the seditious do nothings they are. While Obama is working for solutions they are working to destroy his Presidency, no matter how much they harm America in the process.

Seems appropriate. They only vote for things they know can't get passed anywhere but in their stupid little house.

House Authorizes Lawsuit Against President Obama "The measure passed 225 to 201, with five Republicans joining Democrats to oppose the lawsuit."

"The suit would seek to make Obama strictly enforce the Affordable Care Act that Boehner has held some 50 votes to undermine or repeal. Republicans object that the Obama administration has delayed some parts of the law, particularly the mandate on employers who do not provide health care coverage."

Well does Bohner want to repeal Obamacare or not? For someone who has tried to change it or repeal it 53 times (I think), he wants to fry Obama for providing some leniency to businesses and doing what the Republicanus/Teabaggers had already asked him to do. This Republicanus/Teabagger duplicity (or is it just plain stupidity?) needs to be up on every billboard in the nation so that the people see just what jackasses the Republicanus/Teabaggers are! I hope on 04 Nov 2014 karma bites the GOP on the ass and hard!

From the point of view across the pond, this looks like the GOP biting off their noses to spite their faces - what an utterly WEIRD bunch!

As TC has said often, the GOP are so obsessed with trying to ruin President Obama that they just don't care how much they harm America. Mind you, as the GOP and their friends seem to own most of the media, perhaps they feel secure for a reason - only an informed few will know what they are up to, the rest will be conned by the GOP's snake oil salesmen...

Stars all over the place!

I am god-smacked by Rethuglican audacity. After countless votes by Rethuglicans to dismantle ACA they turn around and sue because he DIDN'T implement all provisions sooner. Can the white, racist, Repuliclowns be any more transparent?

So noted! Thanks for posting, Ashley. Insanity: doing the same kind of thing over and over and hoping for a different result. These GOP/TP bozos are perilously close to being certifiable.

Noted....so, this is what they have reduced themselves to.....suing a president for doing the job they refuse to do...but let's get to the real point....it comes down to a desperate attempt to get rid of the HALF-BLACK man in the White House who's RUNNING something. May they crash and burn and fall on their own swords. The businesses who got that little break from the Prez....will NOT be on their side in this one. That's cutting off one's nose to spite one's face. So....go forth you seditious f**ks...bring it. This will be your undoing (I can dream).

Well, they would, wouldn't they. They were trying to back out of those idiotic impeachment claims, so you need something else to appease the base. They think that once they've started something like this, they can't back out (blacktrack?) without looking ridiculous, so they start up the next best thing, making them look even more ridiculous. That's Republican logic in a nutshell.

This is really starting to be a theme with them, targeting Democratic presidents. I know each side targets the other but I mean legally.

Look what they did to Bill Clinton.

Now with Obama.

I guess Republicans just can't lose gracefully.

Boehner is awfully unhappy about this. He claims that the idea of this leading to a possible impeachment hearing in the house is just the Democrats using his case to rally their base and raise tons of cash. The only problem with that theory, Johnnie, is that YOU started this whole mess. It is a little late to try to shift the blame to Democrats when it is your party that began the mud-slinging. Watching the republican party is a lot like watching an old Three Stooges movie as they slap each other silly. Or sillier. And never stop.

America was once the country of dreams. Gee, I am happy that my parents didn't go! This excuisite US habit of suing everybody for everything is a laughing object in the rest of the world. Suing the president for doing his job the best he can. How desperate can you be? Try to open your eyes! Wipe out the $ signs beeing best for you and look to what is best for your country!

more hypocrisy and paradox from the party that claims.....
1. fiscal responsibility,
2. Obama is "too dictatorial" and also "too disengaged",
3. "we hate frivalous lawsuits".....

They forgot one, my very own Congressman, Tom Marino (PA-10), who has said he wants to impeach not only the President, but Harry Reid as well.,

Congressional Republican Wants To Impeach Harry Reid
http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2013/02/26/1634191/tom-marino-impeachment/

A Republican congressman wants to impeach Harry Reid, and he might’ve gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for those meddling laws preventing Congress from impeaching senators.

"During his initial congressional campaign in 2010, Marino said he would be willing to use “impeachment if necessary” against President Obama in order to increase border security".

Or, he could have voted to support in the House the bi-partisan immigration reform bill that was passed in the Senate.

"...particularly the mandate on employers who do not provide health coverage," as Lynn points out,may, (I say "may") be the pinkie hold these buffoons have on reality. Perhaps they think that if they can force that mandate into action, the people impacted by it will turn on Obama.
Meanwhile,they demonstrate, to the world, how malfeasance, and imbecility looks on steroids!
