Is John Boehner serious about using ‘the Constitution to get things done’?

http://twitter.com/#!/sandrapatriot/status/423494736284893184 Yesterday, President Obama declared that, when it comes to fixing the economy, he’s ready to use his pen and phone to bypass Congress through executive actions. This morning, House Speaker John Boehner tweeted this response: http://twitter.com/#!/SpeakerBoehner/status/423490370383540226 But some people can’t help but wonder about the strength of Boehner’s commitment: http://twitter.com/#!/deltalima21/status/423490593491140608 http://twitter.com/#!/pinkfloydster/status/423494403911479296 http://twitter.com/#!/DCMorse/status/423496781125541888 http://twitter.com/#!/ScottVann/status/423495287487737857 *** Related: Twitchy coverage of John Boehner Read more: http://twitchy.com/2014/01/15/is-john-boehner-serious-about-using-the-constitution-to-get-things-done/

Jealous much? Reporter envious of armed felon’s easy access to president

http://twitter.com/#!/beardedstoner/status/517070971132715010 As Twitchy reported, the Secret Service recently allowed President Obama to ride in an elevator with an armed man with a criminal record who was exhibiting “highly irresponsible behavior.” We know Obama’s is allegedly the most transparent administration ever, but the Miami Herald’s Marc Caputo seems jealous of the armed convict’s easy access to the president. Oh, you've had felony convictions & youre armed? Ride the elevator w/Obama! Oh, youre a reporter? Stand 20 yards away behind barricades… — Marc Caputo (@MarcACaputo) September 30, 2014 All […]

http://twitter.com/#!/Keith_Milliron/status/430452451800403969 It turns out the president wants you to build “that” after all. Inspired by Joey Hudy’s marshmallow cannon at the 2012 White House Science Fair, the Obama administration has announced the first-ever White House Maker Faire. http://twitter.com/#!/WhiteHouse/status/430449078405955586 According to the White House, the Maker Faire will be “an opportunity to highlight both the remarkable stories of Makers like Joey and commitments by leading organizations to help more students and entrepreneurs get involved in making things.” http://twitter.com/#!/ChangeHopeless/status/430455202697998336 In a stunning reversal, President Obama actually wants students and entrepreneurs to take […]

‘Big bad mom jeans’: Obama issues stunningly pathetic warning to Ukraine

http://twitter.com/#!/redsteeze/status/436220214452441088 Now that he’s finished watching “The Monuments Men,” President Obama finally has time to address the situation in Ukraine. Today at a summit in Toluca, Mexico, he issued what he probably figured was a pretty stern warning to the Ukrainian government: http://twitter.com/#!/MajorCBS/status/436222526927024128 http://twitter.com/#!/NewsBreaker/status/436218398884626432 The strongest possible terms?

Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) isn’t the only legislator shocked and disappointed by the release of five senior Taliban leaders from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Georgia Sen.

Allen West offers history lesson to Hank Aaron after GOP/KKK comparison

http://twitter.com/#!/bbergeronlaw/status/454046224337760257 On the week of the 40th anniversary of Hank Aaron’s 715th home run that broke Babe Ruth’s record, the baseball legend had some harsh words about Republican critics of President Obama: “We can talk about baseball. Talk about politics. Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated. “We have moved in the right direction, and there have been […]
