Boehner said the president did not disclose every piece of the accord to Congress as required by law and that a lawsuit over the deal is “an option that is very possible.”Maybe the Tan Man needs to cry more when he delivers these pronouncements because NOBODY is buying what he's selling.
“If you read the provisions in [the congressional review law], it’s pretty clear that the president has not complied,” Boehner said during his weekly press conference Thursday. “Because it makes clear that any side agreements and any other type of an agreement—including those that do not directly involve us—must be turned over as part of it. I do not believe that he’s complied.”
Meanwhile, the Washington Post says the Speaker is too busy battling...wait for it...conservatives in his own party.
“The people considering this are being totally irresponsible, but Boehner’s guys, we’re getting ready for whatever may come — not out of fear, but with exasperation about what some Republicans are willing to do to their own party,” said Rep. Peter T. King (R-N.Y.), who is part of the speaker’s circle of unofficial advisers.Now THIS I believe. The only time the Republican establishment ever has any backbone whatsoever is when they are facing off against conservative Republicans who actually want to do something with the GOP Platform rather than just ignore it.
When will leadership, at any level of the Republican Party, start fighting Democrats with the same level of vigor as they do against conservatives?
It's a mystery.
