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?
Cannot … comprehend … does not compute … can’t make sense …
He’s done it again. Obama has once more used his Super Powers granted to him to ignore the Constitution and tyrannically declare in an Executive Order that anyone doing business with the US government is not allowed to fire people for being gay.
He’s taking away the God-given right of business owners who want to get our taxpayer money for their business to be able to fire taxpayers who just happen to have been born in a way they don’t like for reasons that cannot quite be explained using logic. How tyrannical!
Why, it’s unprecedented that a President would issue an order limiting who the government gives business to! Except of course for all the other times Presidents have done it (such as Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon). Yes, it’s true — we’ve been living in a tyranny for at least 50 years, don’t ya know. Even under Reagan!
This only affects businesses that do business with the federal government so if you want to hate fellow Americans and discriminate against them, you’re just going to have to do that on your own, buddy — because this is a tyranny.
