Obama keeps heat on Republican critics

US President Barack Obama speaks in Minneapolis, Minnesota on June 27, 2014President Barack Obama used a campaign-style speech in the American heartland Friday to blast his Republican opponents as feckless obstructionists in Congress, saying Washington’s current gridlock “drives me nuts.” Republicans have become so obsessed with blocking the Democratic president’s every move that he has been forced to use his executive authority to advance priorities like pay fairness, Obama said, dismissing as a stunt a threatened Republican lawsuit against him. The White House and Republican congressional leaders, notably House Speaker John Boehner, have sparred repeatedly over Obama’s use of executive orders, with Boehner warning this week that Americans “didn’t elect a monarch or king.” The top Republican in Congress announced Wednesday he would file a lawsuit against Obama because “the president has not faithfully executed the laws” of the nation.
