Hey! Did Boehner promise two votes on immigration...
... then wound up with not even getting anything on the table to be voted on?!?!?!
And this after he claimed Congress had to do 'something' because Obama wasn't?!?!?!?!?!
The reich wingers... I LOVE their comedy channel!
Good morning.

Boehner's latest statement:

"There are numerous steps the president can and should be taking right now, without the need for congressional action, to secure our borders and ensure these children are returned swiftly and safely to their countries."

God forbid the House would take any "action"! They will never accomplish anything as long as they have nutcases like foreign born Ted Cruz in Congress.

A senior House Republican said Friday that his caucus couldn't simultaneously sue President Barack Obama for perceived abuse of executive authority and expect him to act unilaterally to address the border crisis.

Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK), a close ally of House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), was asked to reconcile the last-minute scrapping of border legislation with the House GOP's lawsuit in an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

"There was a contradiction yesterday that I'm still struggling to understand," panelist Eugene Robinson said. "The leadership statement when the bill didn't pass essentially said,'Well, but there are plenty of administrative things that President Obama can do and should be doing at the border.' And that was a day after the house voted to sue President Obama for taking administrative action. So how does that square?"

Clinton made the wrong decision. We had enough terrorism at that point to justify offing Obama's cousin Bin Laden then. I also bet Clinton was exaggerating when he said it would have killed 300 innocents.

Obama has been offing tons of innocents with his Drone program, which is why more people hate the USA now that before Obama was elected.

Clinton made the easy decision, not the difficult and correct decision. Bush was handed 911 by Clinton.

Hypocrite John Boehner Demands Obama Take Executive Action Just A Day After Suing Obama for Taking Executive Action!

This looks a little like the House just couldn’t stand to put off their August recess to deal with the border crisis. But more than that, they have such a problem with his executive orders that they’re suing him for them, but they have no problem with him issuing executive orders to handle the border crisis so they can go into recess.

House GOP gives up on immigration, but finds time to sue Barack Obama

....the lawsuit will be great for one group in Washington: Democrats. They can use it to argue that Republicans are partisan extremists who don’t care at all about actually doing anything for the country, and would rather spend their time screaming about Benghazi and suing the President.

And when Democrats go about making that case, the failure of immigration reform will be one of their most compelling pieces of supporting evidence. Obama can say: Look, I tried to get Republicans to help us confront this humanitarian crisis. They said they wanted to. And then what did they do? They voted to sue me, then skipped town without passing anything addressing that crisis!

When Obama takes some kind of executive action to address the broader immigration problem, Republican complaints that he’s being tyrannical will be undermined by the GOP’s abysmal failure to offer an alternative. If they had passed a border bill he vetoed, or one that died in the Senate, they could claim they tried to solve the problem. But now all they’ve got to show for the end of the session is a lawsuit — one that will probably offer their own right wing nothing but frustration and disappointment, and will validate everything Obama is saying about them.

affirmative action losers like Eugene Robinson lack the ability to distinguish between administrative actions that are authorized by law and administrative actions that directly contradict the law.....

If a zinionist's lips are moving, he is lying. No one can believe anything reported by israel. IDF forces were "operating to decommission a tunnel" when the ceasefire ended in violence. It was Netanyahu who vowed to destroy Hamas' tunnel network "with or without a cease-fire." The truth will never be known if we only listen to one side.

Republicans now have Obama right where Obama wants them....

The GOP’s impeachment dilemma will only get worse

...the idea that Boehner characterizes as a crazy Democratic slander is the majority position among Republican voters. And they didn’t get the idea from nowhere. They got it because the people they trust — Republican politicians and conservative media figures — have been telling them for years, but with particularly ferocity in the last few months, that Barack Obama is a lawless tyrant who is trampling on the Constitution. They’ve been hearing this not just from the Sean Hannitys and Steve Kings of the world, but from every Republican, up to and including the GOP congressional leadership, on a daily basis. Of course those Republican voters think he should be impeached. It’s absurd for people like Boehner to turn around and say,“Whoa now, who’s thinking of impeachment? That’s just Democrats saying that.”

And consider the odd situation in which that leaves the President. As much as he has been under attack from Republicans over executive authority, he has a political incentive to bait Republicans into talking more about impeachment, which would both build pressure for it within the GOP and force them to deny it to the media. The best way for him to do so is to take more unilateral action on issues like immigration. That would incense Republicans, who would then rush to the cameras to decry his lawlessness, which would lead journalists to ask them whether they’re going to impeach him, which would lead them to tie themselves in knots denying it. Obama would get both the policy results he wants and the political benefit of making his opponents look like they’re about to drag the country into a repeat of the farce of 1998.

So yes, the talk of impeachment is in part a plot by the White House. But they’re only exploiting the pressure that exists within the GOP — pressure that John Boehner and the rest of the party leadership helped create. And if you think you’ve seen Republicans squirming uncomfortably over the question up until now, just you wait.
