The real meaning of Congress's override of Obama's veto



Congress overrode Obama's veto of a bill that would allow 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia. Not very much publicized, however, is that the legislation still gives the administration a way to block such lawsuits, simply by claiming it is attempting to "reach a settlement" with Saudi Arabia on the subject.

What this is really all about is election year politics. Not only is the very first time that congress has even attempted to override a presidential veto in eight years, it is the first time Congress has even sent Obama a bill he would find objectionable.

Congress has never sent Obama legislation to defund Obamacare, defund Obama's illegal amnesty for illegal aliens, disapprove of the Iran deal, or object to any of the many dubious and even illegal things Obama has done.

Most recently, House Speaker Paul Ryan refused to even try to defund the program to bring thousands of unvettable Syrian Muslims into the country.

Shortly after Ryan took over, Jordan said he encouraged him to “demonstrate that there is a new team in town now” by linking a bill halting Obama’s Syrian refugee program to must-pass government funding. Polls showed Americans were worried following an Islamic State-inspired mass shooting in California, and Jordan believed Republicans could leverage that advantage.

Ryan declined Jordan’s advice, however, and Jordan is still a little sour about it: “Why do we think it’s going to be different now if we’re not willing to pick one issue and stand firm for that one issue and win? Right now, [Democrats] think they can win on these negotiations every time!”

But now we have an election coming and Republicans are trying to show they are standing up to Obama. On one tiny issue. Eight years in.

Thanks, Republicans!
