Do we really call these people “leaders”? Of supposedly the greatest nation in the world? (The one that’s about to elect Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump President.) There must be something smarter to call these people running our Congress than “leaders.” And we certainly aren’t going to call them smart! Clowns, or worse, comes to mind.
Less than one day after Congress overrode President Obama’s veto of a bill that would allow families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia, top GOP leaders now say they “might” need to fix the new law to protect national security interests.
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc-Connell (R-Ky.) both now acknowledge that the bill, which narrows a foreign nation’s immunity from legal challenge, “might” backfire by exposing the U.S. (and members of the U.S. military and other U.S. individuals) to retaliatory lawsuits by foreign victims of terrorism.
“There may be some work to be done,” Ryan told reporters.
In the immortal words of former U.S. tennis great John McEnroe, “Are you serious? Are you kidding me?”
If they know today it “may” need some “fixing,” why didn’t they know it before the override? In fact, why didn’t Congress know it before they enacted the original bill?
Is it too much to expect our “leaders” to get it right the first time?
Seems like it’s always what’s politic, not what’s right. Or smart.
They were just clowning around, right? (But was that when they passed the original bill and then overrode its veto or when they then said it may need a little fixing?)
I must be dreaming, right? Please, tell me I’m just dreaming. You gotta pinch me. Hurry. Wake me up. Please.
