To follow up from yesterday’s post where the GOP was suing Obama for using an Executive Order to slow down implementation of Obamacare (the law they had been trying to not have implemented for four years) — today they demanded that Obama do something about immigration “without the need for Congressional action.”
Let’s let that sink in for a minute.
The Republicans are upset that Obama uses Executive Orders (even though he’s used them less than any President since Grover Cleveland). They sued him over it, and it was for postponing parts of a law they had been trying to kill forever.
Today, Speaker Boehner issued a statement demanding that he use his Executive Order power to do something about the immigrant children.
No, no. I still can’t wrap my head around it.
Executive Orders are bad — and he should use them more often? Executive Orders are bad when Obama does things we agree with and good when he does things we agree with?
