The world has gone crazy it seems. At times, there seems to be no memory of what people have said and done in the past. They will do something to further their ends and then become irate that others use the same tactics against them.
This is clearly the case with press secretary Josh Ernest. He has lashed out at the Senate for their vote to override the President’s veto.

In the wake of Wednesday’s embarrassing vote, the president’s spokesman lashed out at both his political allies and opponents alike.
“This is the single most embarrassing thing the United States Senate has done possibly since 1983,” said press secretary Josh Earnest.
He scolded lawmakers, who he accused of voting on legislation they didn’t understand — which he called “an abdication of their basic responsibilities as elected representatives of the American people.”
“Ultimately these senators are going to have to answer their own conscience and their constituents as they account for their actions today,” he said.
What in the world did these Senators vote to override? What hateful law have they now pushed through and forced on the American people that have raised such harsh criticism from Mr. Ernest?
They ensured the American peoples’ right to sue Saudi Arabia for assisting in the 9/11 attack.

Senators linked arms and delivered a stinging defeat to President Obama on Wednesday, voting to override his veto of a bill that would give victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks a chance to sue Saudi Arabia in U.S. courts over the behavior of Saudi officials they believe may have been complicit in the attack.
But is this not the White House that continues to push things in a way not to allow the Congress to read the things being passed? And once again we find this administration acting like an elitist dictator.
