They’re all new memes sprouting up on Twitter attached to the hashtag, #SoSueMe – mocking House Speaker John Boehner’s announcement that he intends to sue the president. No one knows precisely why Boehner’s taking the president to court, so Obama supporters on Twitter are filling in the blanks.
So far, using memes, the Twittizens speculate Boehner’s suing because he’s mad at Obama for Obamacare, the recovering economy, the president’s charisma, his pen-and-phone strategy (“You mad, bro? #SoSueMe”) personal touch with children, and the fact he won a second term despite a conspiracy among Republicans to specifically stop it from happening.
Given what we know about the Party of No and their irrational blocking of the people’s business, those reasons all seem plausible to me.
