Great moments in presidential legacy building:

Abraham Lincoln: “Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt: “No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.”

John F. Kennedy: “Ask not what your country can do for you; Ask what you can do for your country.”

Ronald Reagan: “Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.”

Barack Obama: “So sue me”:

President Barack Obama defiantly dared congressional Republicans on Tuesday to try to block his efforts to act on his own and bypass a divided Congress that has thwarted his policy initiatives.

“So sue me,” he taunted on a sweltering day, as he pushed lawmakers to pay for road and bridge repairs. “I’m not going to apologize for trying to do something.”

Obama struck an aggressive tone in the face of a lawsuit threat from House Speaker John Boehner and in the wake of two defeats before the Supreme Court, including a unanimous decision from the court that he overreached when he appointed members of the National Labor Relations Board while the Senate was in recess.

Obama would take the high road, but he can’t because that bridge is out and Republicans won’t pay to fix it, or something.

By the way, the reason the Obama administration has entered a new panicked and accelerated unilateral “executive action” phase like a Roomba in search of a legacy on the presidential area rug might have something to do with this:

null

The administration appears determined to do whatever is necessary to change “in modern times” to “of all time.”

But at least Jimmy Carter’s having his best night’s sleep in decades.
