Since the GOP seem eternally helpless in attacking Obama for the “madman” that he is (According to Bob Woodward today), they’ve come up with a fantastic idea!
Days before the March 1 deadline, Senate Republicans are circulating a draft bill that would cancel $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts and instead turn over authority to President Barack Obama to achieve the same level of savings under a plan to be filed by March 8.
The five- page document, which has the tacit support of Senate GOP leaders, represents a remarkable shift for the party. Having railed against Senate Democrats for not passing a budget, Republicans are now proposing that Congress surrender an important piece of its Constitutional “power of the purse” for the last seven months of this fiscal year.
Wow. What “out of the box” thinking. It reminds me of the time Rush Limbaugh was rallying the nation to go and vote for Hillary Clinton. How did that work out?
In other words, the system is so broken, and our leaders in Congress so impotent, they can’t think of what they really SHOULD have done long ago.
Supreme Court or not…impeach. Do what Obama does….get out of Washington and travel to all the cities and attack, attack, attack.
But no. We have wusses. Obama has committed so many “crimes and misdemeanors” over the American people, all you would need to do is stand him up and read him the Constitution.
Perhaps John Adams had it right: Without an educated populace, the tyrants will rule, as they always did in the first half of the history of humanity.
“In the earliest ages of the world, absolute monarchy seems to have been the universal form of government. But the fact is certain: and wherever a general knowledge and sensibility have prevailed among the people arbitrary government and every kind of oppression have lessened and disappeared in proportion.
The poor people it is true have been much less successful than the great. They have seldom found either leisure or opportunity to form a union and exert their strength: ignorant as they were of arts and letters. They have seldom been able to frame and support a regular opposition.”
So even back THEN, it was known that if you keep the people stupid, you will have no problem taking control over them, and to this Nobody it seems we are going back to the ages of tyrants.
So right…go ahead and give him more power: Do you think he will EVER give it back? You not going to convince any democrat at all, of how Obama has done anything wrong.
To them, he’s a god.
