White House lashes out at ’embarrassing’ Senate veto override

The White House lashed out at the Senate Wednesday for overriding President Obama’s veto of legislation that would allow U.S. citizens to sue Saudi Arabia over the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

“I would venture to say that this is the single most embarrassing thing that the United States Senate has done, possibly, since 1983,” Obama spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters aboard Air Force One.

Earnest was responding to a reporter who told him Wednesday’s vote was the most overwhelming since a 95-0 veto override vote in 1983. In that year, the Senate overrode President Ronald Reagan’s veto of a land bill to give a few acres to six retired couples who paid for it, but later learned that it was still government property because of a surveying error.

      Obama himself is not only embarrassing but totally disgusting.

    This effete little ferret presumes to lecture the elected representatives of the entire country.

    ‘Petulance’ seems to be the defining feature of the Obama administration.

    “Hopefully, these senators are going to have to answer their own conscience and their constituents as they account for their actions today,” [Obama spokesman Josh] Earnest said.

    Uhhhh… that’s WHY they voted to override the veto. They didn’t want to explain to those constituents why blocking American terrorism survivors in favor of making nice with the Saudis was a good thing. And who knows, maybe some of them still DO have a conscience, which would only strengthen their resolve.
