Dick O’Bama: Chicken Little Or The Goose That Laid The Golden Turd?

14 July 2011 @ 20:16

From Jake Tapper and Ann Compton at ABC News:

“This process is confirming what the American people think is the worst about Washington,” the president said. “Everyone is more interested in posturing, political position and protecting their base than in solving problems.”

He said we can get a lot of savings “if the spirit changes from why we can’t do things to why we can.

“I have shown enormous willingness to compromise and have taken huge heat for it,” he said, “but my responsibility is to the American people and there comes a point when I need to say, ‘Enough.'”

“It cannot all be on us,” the president said, arguing that Republicans need to give on the revenue side of things as Democrats are willing to do so on spending cuts.

“Don’t call my bluff,” the president said. “I am not afraid to veto and I will take it to the American people.”

If Moody’s, the credit rating agency that announced a review of U.S. credit, downgrades the United States, President Obama said, “it will be a tax increase on every American.”

There needs to be a long-term debt extension, the president argued.

“This may bring my presidency down, but I will not yield on this,” he said.

Then he stood up.

“Enough is enough,” the president insisted. “We have to be willing to compromise. It shouldn’t be about positioning and politics, and I’ll see you all tomorrow.”

Then he left the room.

-Admiral Of The Afghan Seas, Smitty has posted a graphical response to the President’s pansied petulance that is priceless.

-The Reaganite Republican weighs-in with some spot-on commentary on Dicky-O and also has the video of Allen West’s reaction

-In today’s The DC Morning e-mail, Jim Treacher sums-up Little Lord Hemorrhoid’s ‘growth’ in office rather well:

He’s gone from “first-class temperament” to first-class temper tantrums.

When I read, hear, or see story’s about Little Dick O’Bama getting all pouty and stamping his feet, I sometimes feel sorry for him [‘Forgive him Lord, for he know not what he do’].  I mean, the stunted fool just doesn’t get it, that he’s stuck at eleven…years old, that is.  Fear not, however, dear readers: this is but a momentary, fleeting feeling born out of the same emotion I instinctively feel when I watch some jackass, performing an idiotic jump or flip, land on his family jewels.  My belief in Free Will kicks back in quite quickly, that we are all responsible for our conduct, and my fugacious fondness for the deformed of soul fades into the puddle of my dipsomaniacal consciousness.

-I understand perfectly what Victor Davis Hanson is saying:

I’m not the world’s greatest poker player, but I thought the point of bluffing was not to tell the other players that one was bluffing? “Don’t call my bluff” seems a plea for mercy, not a threat, as in, Don’t expose the fact that I have no cards to play.

Every week or so, we get a small glimpse into the strange world of Barack Obama…

‘Strange’ is being very kind, VDH.

He’s creepy and he’s kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
He’s altogether ooky…

In another posting, Jim Treacher reminds us that, throughout the last Presidential Campaign, Dicky and his handlers touted the fact, over and over, that he was ‘a pretty good poker player’ and comments:

Of course, it’s difficult to find something Obama doesn’t think he’s good at. But as we’ve seen this week, he is indeed a master poker player.

And if you doubt it… don’t call his bluff!

If the Republican Party Establishment weren’t such lame dolts, they would have put out by now on the Interwebs a simple thirty-second ad that featured the BHO quote ‘Don’t call my bluff’ and then flashed the dictionary definition of a bluff, like this one from the Collins English Dictionary:

n. 1. deliberate deception intended to create the impression of a stronger position or greater resources than one actually has; call someone’s bluff to challenge someone to give proof of his claims

That’s it.  ‘Nuff said…and he’s The Smartest Man In The Room???

But, of course, the GOP haven’t and they won’t do something like this because they’re spineless dingbats who only want to be loved.

-Speaking of spineless dingbats…

Stacy McCain is dead solid perfect, I think, in his assessment of how things will eventually go down:

If you’re a hopeless rube, you might get the idea that Obama was JFK and this was the Cuban Missile Crisis. In fact, the outcome is pre-ordained — a bipartisan budget “compromise” on the debt-ceiling will be reached, somehow – and people who voted Republican last fall will wake up feeling sore and ashamed.

POH Diaries writes that there was “quite a bit of debate about whether or not Mitch McConnell was just trying to snooker Obama into ‘owning’ the debt or if he’s really planning on being a spineless capitulator like a lot of us feared.” But there’s nothing to debate: Mitch is a spineless capitulator.

Like Trent Lott and Bob Dole before him, Mitch is the Senate Republican leader, and the job of the Senate Republican leader is to make conservative voters say to themselves: “What the hell is the point in voting for those worthless RINO douchebags? Might as well stay home on Election Day!”

Hey, Granny Mitch!  Bingo starts at five after dinner, Murder She Wrote is on at seven, and it’s lights-out at eight – let us know if you need an extra blanket ’cause it’s getting down in the sixties tonight.

Will no one rid us of this troublesome fool?  Rubio, DeMint, et. al.: STAGE THE COUP!

His Bleedin’ Majesty, King Shamus has posted a fine evaluation of the GOP here.

-In the course of some excellent analysis of whether or not Dick O’Bama will get away with his ‘bluff’, Stacy transcribes part of what Sarah Palin said on Hannity last night:

I don’t trust this President. . . . He doesn’t know how to make those cuts. He’s never had to do this before. He’s always just been one to spend other people’s money even if that money is just borrowed money or printed out of thin air. He’s never had to exercise real executive authority like that.

God love that gal.  As Stacy writes:

Say what you will about Sarah Palin, love her or hate her, she has put the hammer on the nail of the essential problem with Obama’s presidency.

    Super post Bob, all these points and links sum up perfectly what’s wrong w/ “little lord hemorrhoid” (that’s a hoot)!

    He reminds me of that sheriff in blazing saddles who takes himself hostage.
    There are quite a few vids on YT that put barry’s mug on the guy too, funny stuff,
    and so prophetic for what’s going on today.

    What a BIG MORON, actually admitting he is BLUFFING!
    If the GOP leaders screw this up, and cave, while the petulant panty-waist is ready to have a nervous breakdown, there really is no hope for America.

    Damn GOP is holding pocket Aces while Obama’s holding a measly trey and nine, why can’t they grow a pair and tell Obama what the deal is.

    “I have shown enormous willingness to compromise and have taken huge heat for it,”

    Channeling ubiquitous snarkiness from my particular and unique High School experience ….


    (Barry is done-done, if John can stand firm – Mitch already retired)
