Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., on Thursday said it's now Obama's turn to "get over it" in the face of a Supreme Court decision that effectively blocks his 2014 executive actions on immigration.
Obama famously said after being challenged by a Republican lawmaker in 2009, "I won," a warning that the GOP had to accept his victory and work with him on Democratic priorities.
In 2013, he again challenged the GOP by saying they needed to "go out there and win an election" if they wanted a change in direction. That line was widely perceived as him saying, "deal with it."
On Thursday, Huelskamp reacted to Obama's press conference about his Supreme Court loss by saying essentially the same thing:
"Obama, you lost," Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., tweeted. "The Constitution won. Get over it."
His tweet appeared to be a reaction to Obama's attempt to downplay the 4-4 ruling that kicked the decision down to the lower court. While the split decision is a loss for Obama and his immigration actions, he cast it as the Court being "unable to reach a decision," and said if it was a ruling from a Court with nine judges on it, that would mean he would "take it seriously."
