President Obama is Right. Republicans Need to ‘Stop Hatin’ All the Time’.
I didn’t want to write about this partly because I thought calls to impeach President Obama would have waned by now. Once the Affordable Care Act was proven and tested, it seemed the Tea Party types had lost steam and were beginning to crawl back into the caves from whence they came. Sadly though, that just hasn’t been the case. House Republicans are in a tizzy over a black man who has managed to supersede their obstinacy and mete out many of the major promises of his campaign. Impeachment threats and lawsuits are their newest ventures meanwhile President Obama has been popping his collar to the drumbeat of their incessant hatred.
Never before have we heard a sitting president describe his opposition party as ‘hatin.’ We may never see it again.
Personally, I am here for bout it bout it President Obama. He has gotten really crunk since his reelection especially since House Republicans have been threatening him incessantly. Their vote to sue him last week (yes, for Obamacare again) on the taxpayers’ dime is despicable but beyond that, it proves that the party is consumed with harassing the President into submission. This could actually be a good thing. Maybe this lawsuit will leave such a bitter taste in the mouths of level-headed Republicans that they will actually realize their representatives in Congress don’t have their backs.
I’m not sure of the inevitable outcome just yet. But, I am happy to see President Obama standing up to Republican bullies obsessed with undermining his authority.
What do you think? Does the lawsuit have teeth? Should Republicans be passing votes on jobs and wages instead of hatin’ on President Obama? Sound off in the comments below!
