His arrogance is unmatched.
President Barack Obama mocked what he described as a do-nothing Congress Tuesday, saying he won’t apologize for taking executive actions on political issues without the legislative branch — and defiantly daring them: “So sue me.”
“As long as they insist on taking no action whatsoever that will help anybody, I’m going to keep on taking actions on my own that can help the middle class, like the actions I’ve already taken to speed up construction projects and attract new manufacturing jobs and lift workers’ wages and help students pay off their student loans,” Obama told a Department of Transportation gathering on Washington’s Key Bridge.
“Middle-class families can’t wait for Republicans in Congress to do stuff. So sue me. As long as they’re doing nothing, I’m not going to apologize for trying to do something.”
The president’s taunt referred to the lawsuit threatened by Speaker John Boehner over Obama’s go-it-alone administrative actions — a tactic he has called a “stunt.”
