    Sheila Jackson Lee's top priority: Obama's executive orders | The Daily Caller

    Almost lost my lunch. So now Democrats in Congress, including Texas's own Sheila Jackson Lee, have decided to abandon the legislative process in favor of writing up executive orders for O'dictator to sign. This is treasonous. Third world banana republic here we come.

    Theoretically, this is no big deal. The President is supposed to be restrained statutorily as to the content of orders, i.e. he already isn't supposed to be able to give illegal orders. Also, it's only reasonable that some in Congress should seek to advise him about this or anything else he does.

    Now, whether things actually work like that in the real world is another matter but, as SJL antics go, this is far from her most outrageous.

    The thing I find offensive is the apparent presumption on the part of SJL that she and others can simply write sample orders and present them for signature as a fait accompli. I find that notion deeply disrespectful of both the legislative process and the office of the presidency.

    Then again, when has SJL ever had any respect for anything other than her own re-election?

    How exactly do you "executively order" jobs? Just because there is jobs doesnt mean everyone will have them. There are lazy people who dont want to work.

    FIFY


    Because "jobs" is plural.


    Went ahead and snuck that apostrophe in there too.

    And that other one.



    You're welcome.

    It's technically possible in the public sector. The President can order any executive department (or lower-level agency or bureau) to cut funds from one thing (anything - buying furniture, doing training, anything) and instead move the money to hiring more bodies. That's usually a decision that can only be competently made at a much lower level but I doubt a simple lack of competence will stop any action proposed by SJL and her ilk. Pretty much everything she has input to runs a pretty high chance of being fairly characterized as "incompetent", anyway.

    To "executively order" jobs in the private sector, though? I don't see how that's directly possible.

    They should launch her to Mars to recover the US flag 'we' left there.
