As an Illinois Senator Barack Hussein Obama voted present on most issues.
As a US Senator, BHO had the most Liberal voting record in the Senate and gave speechs railing against Bush for raising the debt ceiling and in support of the War Powers Act (requiring a President to get Congressional approval to commit troops war like in Libya). Both of which he jumped the fence on once elected.
As President of the United States, BHO sat on the sidelines as the Democratic Congress created and passed a monstrosity of a Health Care Bill. The same with regulating the Finance Industry. The same with "shovel ready" projects for the almost $1 Trillion "stimulus" plan and the auto takeover and Wall Street bailout.
Then last November when the Republicans, who won a majority in the House, started slowing down the spending and regulatory insanity of a Democratic Congress there was a cry from many "compromisers" for the President to get involved, show leadership, and break the log jams.
This weekend we saw Barack Hussein Obama at work. House Majority Leader, John Boehner, went head to head with the President to avoid Obama's declared crisis date of August 2 to raise the debt ceiling. Yes, this weekend at the end of two months of Boehner working with Obama events culminated in John throwing up his hands and saying negotiating with Obama was "like negotiating with jello". He said, "he felt he was dealing with someone from another planet."
Well for those who didn't already know, the cat is out of the bag now. Our President is an INCOMPETENT NARCISSISTIC IDIOT. It was obvious in his ridiculous press conference on Friday that Obama doesn't have a clue what the details of any of the proposed settlements mean. Anytime a reporter gets close to asking about numbers or time frames, which isn't often since Obama cherry picks those who can ask questions, Obama punts and lies that, "my staff will provide you all the details", which never happens.
It is crystal clear: OBAMA DOES NOT KNOW NOR CARE WHAT THE DEAL LOOKS LIKE AT ALL AS LONG AS THE DEBT CEILING IS RAISED BY $2.4 TRILLION WHICH HIS LACKEYS TELL HIM HE NEEDS TO GET PAST THE 2012 ELECTION. PERIOD, PERIOD, PERIOD.
Again, this President is corrupt, lazy, deceitful, narcissistic, and totally incompetent. And with what happened this week end (THE JELLO AND OUTER SPACE THING) all the world now knows. How would you like to be the leader of Israel, Afghanistan, Iraq, Egypt, Libya, Iran, North Korea, China, Russia, or the United Kingdom and know that the most important person to you in the world (The Leader of the Free World) is a piece of JELLO FROM OUTER SPACE?
Think about it because the next 18 months just got a lot longer (and shakier),
P.S. The debt ceiling debate boils down to the size and the extension of the ceiling. Anything around $1 Trillion or less and the Country wins. Anything over $2.4 Trillion and the JELLO FROM OUTER SPACE wins. The short term extension enbles the House to continue to put pressure on the Dems for spending cuts. Secondly, even without default which will not happen, if we don't seriously reduce our debt by more than $4 Trillion over the next 10 years the three rating agencies will more than likely reduce our credit rating because of our perceived inability to pay our debt. If so, interests rates go up and the economy suffers even more. Hold on to your gold teeth!
