While Speaker Boehner condemns Barack Obama, perhaps he needs to look in the mirror.

The letter below to Speaker Boehner is in response to the above tweet as well as to his released statement “on President Obama’s Efforts to Import Gitmo Terrorists to the United States.”
“An overwhelming majority of the American people and bipartisan majorities in the House and Senate oppose importing the terrorists imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay into the United States, yet the White House continues to move forward with its plan. Even as Islamic jihadists are beheading Americans, the White House is so eager to bring these terrorists from Guantanamo Bay to the United States that it is examining ways to thwart Congress and unilaterally re-write the law. Not only is this scheme dangerous, it is yet another example of what will be this administration’s legacy of lawlessness.
“While Republicans stand united against this ploy, each and every Democrat should make their position known. Do they support the president’s maneuver to override a bipartisan law, thumb his nose at the American people and the Constitution, and bring these terrorists to U.S. soil? Or do they stand with the American people and oppose this dangerous plan? House Republicans have kept our Pledge to America to keep these terrorists out of the United States, and we will do everything within our power to keep our pledge and hold the administration accountable.”
Dear Speaker Boehner,
So, Barack Obama is “lawless,” to use your own word. My, oh my. I see. May I make a sincere suggestion? SHUT UP! Just shut up and resign.
You want to talk about lawless? Question: Who has the power to hold a lawless President accountable for his lawlessness? Oh… yes… under the Constitution, that would be the idiot you see in the mirror every morning.
How many lawful Articles of Impeachment has that idiot in the mirror filed, or supported, up to this moment? In case you’re having trouble coming up with the answer, I’ll help you out: ZERO! That means none, nada, zip, bupka.
Until you’re ready to do your job… or to spare the country your spinelessness by leaving office, never to return… SHUT UP!
It is bad enough when leaders with misguided, unethical policies inflict their evil upon us. But when those who profess to know better facilitate and fail to strenuously oppose that evil, it’s worse.
A Citizen Who’s Had Enough of Your Derelict, Cowardly, “Leadership”
