“They’re not doing anything, and then they’re mad at me for doing something,” Mr. Obama said of Republican lawmakers, adding, “They’ve decided they’re going to sue me for doing my job.”
This came two days after Republican House Speaker John Boehner announced his conference was taking him to court.
“The Constitution makes it clear that a president’s job is to faithfully execute the laws,” House Speaker John Boehner alleged Wednesday. “In my view, the president has not faithfully executed the laws.”
The president mocked it all.
“You know, I might have said in the heat of the moment in one of these debates, ‘I want to raise the minimum wage, so sue me when I do,’” the president said. “But I didn’t think they were going to take it literally.”
“They don’t do anything, except block me and call me names,” he said.
Mind you, this all comes right on the heels of the Supreme Court issuing what most viewed as a major rebuke of the Obama administration over it's now unconstitutional use of recess appointments.
