Well, it wasn’t the first time he’s said it, but this was definitely the most pronounced. Clearly incensed over John Boehner’s pending lawsuit and the notion of actually having to deal with Republicans during the remaining two years of his presidency, Barack Obama on Tuesday proclaimed, “So sue me!” Way to bring us all together there, champ.
“I’m not going to apologize for trying to do something,” remarked a rather defensive POTUS. But therein lies the actual problem: he’s not actually doing anything…apart from trying to take the easy way out all the time. The arrogance was on full display, as Obama outright taunted the GOP for obstructing his agenda, and then condescendingly patronized them with a moutful of “They love their country, they love their families” verbal garbage.
We’ve seen many sides of President Obama throughout the years: happy, sad, mad, surprised, confused, bored, frustrated…but no matter what emotion he puts on, his conceited self-righteousness is never lost. The man is so convinced he’s right that it’s almost as if he believes he’s on a mission from God. But Elwood Blues he is not.
Barack may think his “so sue me” challenge is enough to diffuse his legal woes, but considering the double smack in the face that he’s received in the past two weeks from the Supreme Court (over recess appointments and Hobby Lobby), it might behoove El Prezzo to not press his luck. A leader with less ego would have been humbled on at least SOME level by that kind of rejection…but this guy just doesn’t have that in him. Instead, he’ll simply get angrier and angrier, until it’s finally time for him to return home to Chicago. And barring any executive order that he might come up with between now and 2016, there’s thankfully nothing he can do to change that.
