The Noose Tightens As Boehner Walks Into Obama’s Trap By Vowing To Stop Him On Immigration

President Obama has set the Republicans up, and John Boehner walked into the president’s trap today by vowing to stop him on immigration.


Boehner painted himself into a corner today by vowing to stop the president’s executive orders on immigration,

With this action, the president has chosen to deliberately sabotage any chance of enacting bipartisan reforms that he claims to seek. And, as I told the president yesterday, he’s damaging the presidency itself.

President Obama has turned a deaf ear to the people that he was elected, and we were elected, to serve. But we will not do that. In the days ahead, the People’s House will rise to this challenge. We will not stand idle as the president undermines the rule of law in our country and places lives at risk. We’ll listen to the American people, we’ll work with our members, and we will work to protect the Constitution of the United States.

By vowing to act to stop Obama, Speaker Boehner walked into the trap that the president has set for congressional Republicans. Boehner has already been told that he can’t defund the executive orders. The House can’t do anything to stop the implementation of the executive orders. The courts have already ruled that presidents have broad authority as it relates to deportations, so a lawsuit is likely to go nowhere fast.

It appears that Boehner only has two options. The House of Representatives could pursue articles of impeachment against the president, or they can shut down the government. There is a possibility that the House could vow not to fund the government until the president rescinds his executive orders.

President Obama has sunk all of the GOP’s post-election momentum and thrown congressional Republicans into chaos by acting where Boehner wouldn’t. The president knew that Boehner would never accept the one option that could end this conflict. Speaker Boehner could put this issue to bed if he allowed the House to vote on the Senate passed immigration bill.

Boehner’s remarks reveal that Republicans aren’t considering the option of doing their jobs and passing legislation. Instead, Boehner is walking right into the president’s trap. His party is fractured and on the verge of triggering another government shutdown.

The Republicans admitted last night that Obama has them by the balls. Boehner is screwed, and his vow to fight is another sign that the country is moving towards another government shutdown showdown.
