    Iowa Rep. Steve King said on Friday that he would sue the Obama administration to block its newly announced plan to grant amnesty to certain children of illegal immigrants.

    “I will tell you that — I’m not without experience on this — I’m prepared to bring a suit and seek a court order to stop implementation of this policy,” King said on former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s radio program, The Daily Caller reports.

    “I have done it once in the past successfully when then-Governor Tom Vilsack thought he could legislate by executive order — and the case of King vs. Vilsack is in the books,” King said. “And that individual, by the way, is now the secretary of agriculture. I wonder if he’s not counseling the president on his legal proceedings.”

    Huckabee then asked, “You plan to sue this administration for implementing something that you believe should have required legislative process and approval?”
    “That is correct,” King replied.

    President Barack Obama makes the same speech over and over again because he just likes to hear himself speak, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus told Newsmax.TV on Friday.

    “He’s in love with the sound of his own voice; he’s in love with the man in the mirror,” charged Priebus, citing what was supposed to be a major policy speech that the president gave in Cleveland on Thursday.

    “Unfortunately, he isn’t in love with following through on promises – and he hasn’t been in love with providing a good environment for jobs and he hasn’t done anything about the debt or the deficit,” Priebus said in the exclusive interview.

    Romney: Obama immigration policy change will be an impediment to permanent citizenship.

    “I believe the status of young people who came here through no fault of their own is an important matter to be considered and resolved on a long term basis so that they know what their future will be in this country,” Romney said. “I think the actions the president took today make it more difficult to reach a long term solution because an executive order is, of course, just a short term matter than can be reversed by subsequent presidents.”

    RUSH: My friends, the Drive-By Media is in a state of shock. They’re depressed and disappointed. They’re fearful for the future. Barack Hussein Obama cannot even please them with speeches anymore.

    Cable Nets Dump Laughable “Major” Speech
    RUSH: Look, our microphones are there. We’re not gonna blow through a commercial break, and I don’t even know how much we’re gonna listen to this, but let’s JIP Oblame-o. He’s speaking now.

    OBAMA: So how did this economic theory work out?

    RUSH: What? What?

    OBAMA: For the wealthiest Americans it worked out pretty well.

    RUSH: He was waiting for applause that didn’t happen.

    OBAMA: Over the last few decades the income at the top 1% grew by more than 275%.

    RUSH: That’s who you listen to.

    OBAMA: An average of $1.3 million a year.

    RUSH: It’s a 2008 speech.

    REPORTER: President Obama speaking in Cleveland —

    RUSH: Well, there you have it, folks. I was joking when I said, is it in a mortuary? He’s sitting around, he’s waiting for the junior college students to applaud, and they weren’t. Their cue to applaud was a lot of silence and then, “Oh, I guess we’re supposed to make some noise here.” Anyway, so that’s Obama at a community college in Cleveland. Yeah, Fox dumped out of that. Everybody dumped out of this. Oh, MSNBC is still — yeah, they would be. They’re being paid. But CNN dumped out. That’s why I say it’s a 2008 speech. He’s talking about people who were tricked into buying homes. He’s talking about the subprime mortgage thing. He can’t even tell the truth about that.

    RUSH: Well, I know what you mean. I know what you mean. If we ever had a reparations program, they wouldn’t call it that. They’d camouflage it, disguise it as some sort of welfare program. The media says that Michelle Antoinette is likable, too, that she one of the most beloved people in the country. They do. Why are you frowning in there? You know they say that about Michelle. (interruption) The polls say that she’s more liked than Obama is? I think they tell us that both of them are liked and respected and adored. And Obama, he’s the celebrity president impersonator. Maybe, I guess. Is Axelrod on Twitter yet answering questions from the speech? He was supposed to be.

  • lbsles

    RUSH: You know when the Democrats talk about how great it was under Clinton, okay, great, let’s go back there. If that’s the measure of success, let’s take the retro-express and head back there. Now, I understand your point. But there are two primary reasons they didn’t do a budget, the Democrats. One is, they did not want to go on record with their spending intentions or desires because it would harm them politically, campaign-wise. Number two, they chose the continuation resolution route because it allowed them to perpetuate a constant crisis, which was an easy way to bamboozle the Republicans and flummox them and get the spending that they wanted incrementally inch by inch, and there’s a couple of other factors that are tossed in here as well.

    But nevertheless, Darrell, I have to tell you, you make a great point indirectly. If Obama is going to blame Bush — and he did in this speech. He said the problems we have, have been in the making for ten years. Ten years is George W. Bush. This is 2012. Ten years, that’s George W. Bush, and he means from 2000 to 2010. That’s what he’s talking about. So if he’s going to blame Bush for all the spending, let’s go back to Bush’s budget. The last budget we had was Bush’s. Let’s go back to that. But of course it’s not gonna happen. But it’s a great thought exercise.

  • lbsles

    RUSH: Tell me what you think here. Obama’s still speaking. It is dull, it is boring, and all the networks dumped it. Is MSNBC still covering it? They are. They’re the only ones. Everybody else bumped out of this thing. It’s reworked 2007, 2008 stuff. I’m gonna be real eager to hear the reviews, ’cause the media had so much hope. They had so many hopes invested in this speech, and I’m gonna be eager to see what they say about it. Now, he just said, “My vision works for the middle class.”

    This is a guy who just said, “The private sector is doing fine.”

  • lbsles

    RUSH: So it’s Bush’s fault. The policies of the last decade are what we’re living under now, and he hasn’t been able to fix it. That’s what he’s saying. He hasn’t been able to fix it. He’s not qualified. That’s what he’s saying. This is what Romney has got to point out. The Republicans have gotta point this out. He keeps blaming the last ten years. And what’s happening now, he’s been in there 3-1/2 years trying to fix it. He hasn’t fixed it. It’s still dominant, what Bush did. It’s still carrying the day. What Bush did is still dominating our politics.

    Obama Admits He Can’t Fix What Bush “Broke,” So Why Reelect Him?

    RUSH: It is amazing, isn’t it? After three-and-a-half years, everything that’s happened the last three-and-a-half years, if it’s all been Bush’s fault, don’t we have evidence enough now to know that Obama can’t deal with it. Obama doesn’t know what to do with it. We need to elect somebody who can stand up to Bush.

    I think this is one of the reasons why they’re very disturbed at multiple levels of the Democrat machine, including the media. They’re very concerned about this whining and blaming Bush, because at some point you’re admitting you’re incompetent. If you whine and complain, “This guy screwed it up so bad, not even I can fix it,” it’s unfixable, is the logical conclusion of this. The worst thing that can be blamed on Bush is Obama’s election. That’s, to me, what Bush is primarily responsible for.

    CBO: Obama Porkulus Spent $4.1 Million Per Job
    RUSH: “When [the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act] was being considered, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and the staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation estimated that it would increase budget deficits by $787 billion between fiscal years 2009 and 2019. CBO now estimates that the total impact over the 2009–2019 period will amount to about $831 billion. By CBO’s estimate, close to half of that impact occurred in fiscal year 2010…” The bottom line is this: The amount of money that they calculate the stimulus will cost and add to the deficit equals $4.1 million per job created. That’s the efficiency we got from the regime: $4.1 million per job. And the reason it’s $4.1 million per job is because there weren’t that many jobs created.

    More Interesting Economic Numbers from James Pethokoukis
    RUSH: Now, some interesting economic numbers here. With today’s quiet revision (we mentioned this the first hour), economic growth for the first quarter, originally reported at 2.2%, was (quietly) revised down to a growth rate of 1.9%. That’s the robust economy that 3-1/2 years of Obama have given us. During the recovery of the eighties, Ronald Reagan’s recovery, the gross domestic product of this country averaged 6% growth!

    CINCINNATI — Mitt Romney on Thursday said President Barack Obama is “long on words and short on action” when it comes to fixing the economy.

    So the Dems have to hope that latinos blindly follow the Dem party the way african-americans do? They’ve got a lot of groups to keep happy. And it seems they’ve given up on grown up white people and are focused on their kids.

  • Faith3

    Good Morning d.d,

    “It’s an attempt by the EPA to establish a water-quality standard that no mining company can meet.”

    I had to do a little reading on this since I was not sure what this law suit was about…

    It looks like the fact that the coal company does not have the technology available to get rid of toxic material from the water ways, they have an extention to do what they do. I guess its called business as usual. I do see why the citizens of those communities around the area where water ways have been effected have concerns. Especially in light of the high cancer rates, tumors and other unusually high levels of multiple diseases that have inflicted harm on its community.

    @ Merlinus: “And it seems they’ve given up on grown up white people and are focused on their kids”

    Close, but the correct statement should read: “And it seems they’ve given up RICH white people and are focused on the kids of illegal Mexican kids so as to influence their parents.” And alienate the other races in America.

    He could not get congress that the Dems controlled for two years to get it done, to do it so he’s doing another end-around play. I wonder if Romney will cancel all these BS Exec orders when he becomes Pres?

  • Jeff

    The right wing looney tunes need to learn how to add.

    Sen. Ted Kennedy was ill and for a good portion of the “super majority”. So with that said do some real math and you see that President Obama had 4 real months of a 60 vote super majority without the relentless obstruction from the GOP to the first black President elected in US history. It was planned during his inauguration. The GOP had every intention to use every measure possible to make President Obama a failure. They failed he has created over 4 million jobs and saved the auto industry and killed OBL, and got us out of Iraq, passed heathcare reform etc, all while the GOP worked to obstruct every step of the way
    So get real!!!!

    The GOP in congress are economic traitors!

  • Faith3

    “How about profit? Corporate profits have risen 58 percent since mid-2009. So yes, big companies are making money. But they’re putting it right into the bank, not back into the economy. The Federal Reserve says companies had $1.74 trillion dollars in the bank at the end of March. Twice what is normal” http://yourbottomline.blogs.cnn.com/2012/06/11/fact-check-is-the-private-sector-doing-fine/

    ….and who said trickle down economics works;) Seems to me, that flies in the face of reason.

  • Jeff

    Bravo faith3!!

    74 Senators voted in support of the current transportation bill. The house GOP took a recess instead of brining it to a vote.

    It sits on John Boehners desk with Merlot stains on it….

    This bill (that is PAID for) will create 3 million construction jobs. Another million+ in other jobs. The Republicans in the House of Representatives are economic traitors for NOT passing this job creating bill. Put politics aside and pass this bill!!!
    The GOP are keeping 4 million people out of work all in hopes to pick up ONE job in the White House.

    Again, republicans are economic traitors, here is more proof!

  • Debsafan

    Now they can sign up on unemployment, food stamps, medicaid. I hope they have better luck then me and my elderly husband have. Of course it will be a piece of cake for them.
