President Obama hit it out of the hypothetical park in Kansas City, calling for the GOP to do Something. Anything. "Work with me!"
And that this lawsuit business is but a "political stunt'.
Something about Kansas (the BBQ?) had really relaxed the under-siege, in the crosshairs of the current Congressional litigious 'acting out' … liturgy after liturgy after bloody liturgy.
President Obama had some quips that will stay with you.
"I know they're not that happy that I'm president, but that's OK," he said. "Come on. I've only got a couple of years left. Come on, let's get some work done. Then you can be mad at the next president."
E.J. Dionne explained today that issue goes beyond "the open demands for throwing Obama out from Sarah Palin, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Tex.) and many others on the right wing. The deeper problem lies in the proliferation of loose impeachment talk linked with one overheated anti-Obama charge after another."
Jonathan Capehart expressed the absurdity with such aplomb and wit it's worth the whole read.
The plan all along has been to crash the Obama agenda and then climb on top of the wreckage and seize power. Not only are Republicans complicit in the “failures” they rail against, but they are also the reason the president has had to resort to executive action to get some things done. Even Will agrees Obama is within his authority to do this. He just doesn’t like the degree to which he has done it. Poor dear.
President Obama did a memorable job of telling us precisely what he thought of the Regressive Right's foaming at the mouth and ability to simply make shite up.
Stop Hatin'. Finally, President Obama said what he truly thought of the post-Tea Party idiocy, with just the proper soupçon of sarcastic … was pretty damned proud we elected this guy, twice.
Time for the Tea Party to pack up and ride on home.
