Sheila Jackson Lee says writing executive orders for the President should be number one priority

Sheila Jackson Lee has said some of the most asinine things over the last several years and it’s getting progressively worse. From telling the NAACP convention that Tea Partiers were nothing more than Ku Klux Klan members without their robes to complaining that hurricane names were too “lilly white,” suggesting names like, “Keisha, Jamal and Deshawn”, Sheila Jackson Lee has proven herself to be a complete moron. While most of the things she says are quite laughable and out of touch, her party takes her seriously, which is scary since one of her latest ideas involves writing executive orders for president Obama.


According to the Daily Caller, the new House Democratic “Full Employment Caucus” is planning to draft executive orders for President Obama to sign. Not only does Sheila Jackson Lee this is a good idea, she thinks that doing so should be the groups number one agenda item. 

Here’s what she said:

We will be answering the call of all of America because people need work and we’re not doing right by them by creating work. And I believe this caucus will put us on the right path and we’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength.

In fact, I think that should be our number one agenda. Let’s write up these executive orders — draft them, of course — and ask the president to stand with us on full employment.

This is unbelievable to me. Does Sheila Jackson Lee  understand the concept of “Separation of Powers”? A better question may be, does John Boehner understand the power that he has under Section 5 of the Constitution? It says, “Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.” I say it’s past time for corrective action to be taken against Mrs. Jackson-Lee and those like her who don’t respect or uphold their Constitutional oath.
