I am not making this up.
Can anyone take these guys seriously at all? Is there anyone out there who really thinks the Republicans are doing anything other than political theater?
They tried 57 times to repeal Obamacare. They appealed it to the Supreme Court and lost. They shut down the government to get him to not implement it.
And now they’re suing because — ready? — he postponed part of the bill to give employers more time to adjust to it.
Yes. They are suing him because he is not implementing the bill they have spent four years trying to get him to not implement.
Obama treats this lawsuit with the seriousness it deserves. He laughs, calls it a “stunt”, and says mockingly, “You’re going to squawk if I try to fix some parts of it administratively that are within my authority while you’re not doing anything?”
So, even though I shake my head at the Republicans, I am happy they are doing this, because (a) the suit has absolutely no chance of prevailing and (b) it just angers moderate and liberal voters who may be motivated to kick these bozos out office. This “Impeachment Lite” should be about as effective as the Clinton impeachment was (which led to the Democrats winning big in the midterms).
So bring it on, Republicans.
