The President: petulant as ever and punking the nation

Jennifer Rubin fires a rocket over at WaPo about He Who Must Be Obeyed, and the difficulty Congress has, in a bi-partisan effort mind you, getting this looming debt ceiling crisis handled:

A Republican aide e-mails me: “The Speaker, Sen. Reid and Sen. McConnell all agreed on the general framework of a two-part plan. A short-term increase (with cuts greater than the increase), combined with a committee to find long-term savings before the rest of the increase would be considered. Sen. Reid took the bipartisan plan to the White House and the President said no.”

If this is accurate the president is playing with fire. By halting a bipartisan deal he imperils the country’s finances and can rightly be accused of putting partisanship above all else. The ONLY reason to reject a short-term, two-step deal embraced by both the House and Senate is to avoid another approval-killing face-off for President Obama before the election. Next to pulling troops out of Afghanistan to fit the election calendar, this is the most irresponsible and shameful move of his presidency.

As for the House, why not pass the deal that Sen. Harry Reid agreed to, send it to the Senate and leave town? Enough already.

We’ve said that too, Jennifer. We also wonder why it’s so hard for the Senate to pass the Cut/Cap/Balance Bill, and have it on the President’s desk by Happy Hour. The House, for its part however, really has no business passing anything forwarded by Harry Reid, who is little more than a lap dog for the President. John Boehner has been talking to the American people for over a week now about GOP efforts and attempts to get the President’s approval. Every time the plan goes to the White House, imPOTUS nixes it for lack of “new revenue”…code talk for more taxes.

Either the President is too stupid to realize that one does not tax a nation out of a recession, or, I’m leaning more toward this one, the President is simply looking for more ways to spend our hard earned pay checks on frivolous bullshit government programs. Gack! I’m hearing the song “He’s got the whole world in his hands. He’s got the whole wide world in his hands!” playing in my head. I used to love that song, too. Bastard.

While the plan proposed by Speaker Boehner isn’t something I would have signed off on, it is a plan. “An imperfect plan executed violently is far superior to a perfect plan.”  Remember that? George Patton. (Brassy fucker from Dubbya Dubbya Eye Eye. Knew how to make things happen.) Which, I ain’t seen none of that perfect plan out of Harry and the hobgoblins in the Senate. I really haven’t. Anyone else?

Now there’s talk about Obama using the 14th Amendment to circumvent Congress. I’m wondering how that applies, Barry. Would that come under ‘equal protection’ or ‘due process’? Help me out here, because I’m not seeing it.

Congress is the body to decide how this debt crisis gets resolved, not the greedy lone injun looking for more tax dollars. Some of us wonder how close it has to come to pitchforks in Tonto’s Obama’s face, or deftly planted elsewhere, to make a believer out of him.
