John Fugelsang believes John Boehner suing President Obama to appease the Tea Party
Most thinking people understand that Congress has no standing in suing the President when one cannot identify a harm done to someone. Attorney General Eric Holder said the following on ABC News on Sunday.
“For whatever reason, [some] Republicans decided early on that this was a president they were just simply not going to cooperate with,” Holder said in a rare interview with ABC News' Pierre Thomas. "And over the past five-and-a-half years, we have seen demonstrations of that, where the president has reached out his hand, offered compromises that have simply not been met [in the way] they have been in the past by a Republican Party willing to do the appropriate things."
John Fugelsang breaks it down even more simply. On The Ed Show he amusingly scolded the host and other guest for attempting to apply logic to the actions of John Boehner in suing the President.
“These are the people who say Obama is Neville Chamberlain and Hitler which means he is trying to appease himself,” John Fugelsang said.”.. There is one thing that is being missed here. This is all about John Boehner trying desperately and cravenly to make the Tea Party like him. That is all this is about. Let’s not forget, after the 2012 elections Louie Gohmert voted for Allen West to be Speaker of the House after he left Congress. … John Boehner knows how deeply the Tea Party despises him. He does about as much work in a day as a human appendix. … This is all just him trying to make these people like him. It will never work. If John Boehner led, the Tea Party still wouldn’t like him, but they would respect him. This is like theater except actual theater creates jobs.”
Enough said on the subject. Suffice it to say the suit is a distraction.
