Postscript: The GOP Begs Obama to Use Executive Power

You just can’t make this stuff up. I wish I could. I’m working on my fiction writing and it’d be so much funnier if I could.

While contemplating their response to Obama’s “so sue me” crack (see below), they managed to totally screw up their last chance before the August recess to do something about the humanitarian crisis on our southern border. So, after admitting defeat (even Boehner couldn’t get his unruly right-wing to cooperate) they withdrew the bill and went home. They left this message:

 “There are numerous steps the president can and should be taking right now, without the need for congressional action, to secure our borders and ensure these children are returned swiftly and safely to their countries.”

In short, they just asked him to use the power of the Executive. Wasn’t this the justification behind the suit? Wasn’t this the rationale for contemplating impeachment?

Irony is a cruel jokester.
