Obama Blinked

Yes, from what I’ve seen Obama got the better of the Boner in Dueling Speeches last night, but I want to point to the following:

In an interview on MSNBC’s Hardball this evening, tenther Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) admitted that he is using the threat of a catastrophic default to extort the nation into rewriting the Constitution to force a permanent era of conservative governance:

CHRIS MATTHEWS: How many days do you think we have, on the outside, to get this debt ceiling through before we have a problem? How many days?

LEE: I don’t know, maybe ten days.

MATTHEWS: Okay, in ten days you want to change the United States Constitution by two-thirds vote in both houses? That’s what you’re demanding.

LEE: Yes. If possible we can’t change the Constitution just in Congress but we can submit it to the states. Let the states fight it out.

MATTHEWS: And you think you’re being reasonable by saying you want a two-thirds vote in the House, which is Republican, and in the Senate which is Democrat. You want the Democratic Senate, by a two-thirds vote, to pass a constitutional amendment or you want the house to come down?

LEE: Yes. That’s exactly what I’m saying and I’ve been saying this for six months.

And this is why I’m now at the point of saying that the Obama Administration is a failed presidency.

Barack Obama is a sharp guy – at least as sharp as Bill Clinton and, even presuming that they are 100% equal in greymatter, the edge goes to Obama because he has no history of housing any of his greymatter in his dick…

which makes him the sharpest guy to hold the office of president during my lifetime.  Sorry, but, even though LBJ was smart, he was primarily mean and that’s where his success emanated from.  And Carter?  Well, Carter demonstrated that honesty and decency are no substitutes for a nice mixture of intelligence and meanness….

which brings me back to Obama and why I must conclude that he has failed.

Look back at what Lee had to say.

And understand that he’s not alone.

Now…

The reason I say that Obama has failed is that he either has been strategically unwilling thus far to deal with treasonmongers such as Lee as the treasonmongers that they are or – and this is what I fear more – he failed from the outset to recognize just how willing that the 21st Century Norquistublican Axis is to do what George III, Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, Jefferson Davis, Kaiser Wilhelm, Hideki Tojo, Adolf Hitler, Benito Missolini, Nakita Khruschev, Ho Chi Minh, Moammar Khadaffy, Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden were not able to do – namely, to destroy the United States of America.

Get ready for President Bachmann and her first lady.

  1. Kathleen says:

    He really should just invoke the 14th amendment.

    Section. 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.

    And/Or the inherent power of the Pres to act in times of national emergency.

    Friday night – after 6:00pm. Let them whine & cry. The system doesn’t have to be broke if he plays all the cards he has.

  2. Kathy’s right. We know Obama has the grey matter, now let’s see if it’s attached to a spine!

  3. Apparently though TransGriot will call you racist for saying so… which absolutely boggles my mind.

    How can you have:

    “Since When Did Criticism Of Gay People Become ‘Anti-Gay Hate’?”

    coexist with:

    “Respect This POTUS and FLOTUS Like You’ve Done The Other 43 White Ones”

    Am I the only one who sees the slight flaw in logic involved here? She specifically focuses on the President’s left-wing critics on the latter one too.

    As I say, it’s never the avowed enemies that bother me, it’s the allies. If you’ll excuse me I have to sigh mournfully for a while.
