Boy, that didn’t take long. Senator Paul Ryan, ultra-conservative new Speaker of the House of Representatives, took a shovel and began drawing his big proverbial line in the sand today. Apparently, Ryan feels the need to appeal to his
nutters colleagues on the far right.
In an interview that aired Sunday on ABC “This Week,” Ryan said that he would NOT introduce legislation to address immigration reform while President Obama remains in office.
I think it would be a ridiculous notion to try and work on an issue like this with a president we simply cannot trust on this issue.
This from a man who thinks building border fences is a “top priority.”
Ryan continued to insult the President, stating,
He tried to go it alone, circumventing the legislative process with his executive orders so that is not in the cards. I think if we reach consensus on how best to achieve border and interior enforcement security, I think that’s fine.
Here’s a news flash for you, Mr. Speaker. The President wouldn’t have felt the need to “go it alone” had he not been surrounded by a do-nothing Congress controlled by the Party of No. Maybe if you had gotten off your dead asses, listened to the American people, and actually done the job for which you were elected, the President wouldn’t have written all those “heinous” Executive Orders.
Looks like the honeymoon is over. And we thought Boehner was bad.
Let’s hear this divisiveness from his own mouth:
