The Johnny Weir White House
Congressional budget negotiations with the O-bumites have taken on the high drama of daytime television. People in print and electronic media have begun to snicker about the President. He could not get his way, and hand on hip, precious little Obama stomped his foot, tossed his head defiantly, and stormed out of the room. Try to recall Johnny Weir encountering Charles Barkley on the Tonight show. These days, Boy Barack is singing the Theftocrats’ version of the Crying Game.
The truth is that O-buma and his craven band of child exploiters are pitching hissy fits because the right side of the Congressional aisle is preventing them from shoveling the costs of their vote-buying welfare state onto future generations of Americans. Also true is that Theftocrats are simply too spineless to bear being treated as they would like to treat others.
Enough is enough, said Obama. I've reached my limit. This may bring my presidency down, but I will not yield on this. If Americans are lucky, it will bring down O-buma’s imperial presidency. Not too long ago, a president said something like read my lips, and he paid dearly for it. Why is it acceptable for Obama to be overtly uncompromising but express outrage that his GOP opposition is unyielding? It's as if he's saying, How dare you be as intransigent as I'm being. Obama also warned Cantor, Don't call my bluff. Did anyone ever tell this narcissistic man "no" before he became president?
O-buma is starting to resemble the Wizard of Oz, hiding behind a little curtain pulling the levers and turning the knobs and dials.
This article suggests that Ozbuma inadvertently revealed more than he might have liked when he warned negotiators not to call his bluff. The first rule in bluffing is to keep it a secret that you're bluffing. So, technically speaking, that's like a con man saying, "Don't give any weight to the fact that I'm lying. Still, Republicans have offered options. Senator Mitch McConnell’s plan for the deadlocked budget talks would give the White House the authority to raise the debt ceiling up to three times over the next year, with a maximum of $2.5 trillion.
This plan would give Obama all of the responsibility for proposing specific spending cuts and for raising the debt ceiling three times up to $2.5 trillion over the next year. Obama would get his way unless a supermajority of Congress objected, so the GOP could vote against Obama without stopping him. As Shakespeare said, “there’s the rub.” This would force O-buma and his cronies to propose specific spending cuts in order to justify increasing the federal debt.
It is now clear what has O-buma’s panties in a bunch. This would reveal exactly on what the Theftocrats would be squandering the borrowed money. Fearless Leader has been posturing and blustering, trying to use his sound bite rhetoric to portray himself as an assertively hard charging leader with passion and vision. However, when it comes to being personally accountable and responsible for his decisions and actions, he dashes off to the presidential powder room for a good cry.
May your gods be with you.
