|Obama Leaving In A Huff|
Now the angry 14 year old wants more goodies, and insists that the limit on his credit card be raised so he can continue his reckless spending. Giving Obama additional credit is like giving a teenager the keys to the liquor cabinet and the car simultaneously. Even the highly astute, quick-thinking GOP establishment has begun to think this is a bad idea. "Huuuh? Whaaat? I dunno, maybe we should say no?"
Obama wants elected Republicans to vote with Democrats to raise the debt ceiling so the latter can waste even more while avoiding responsibility. If he can persuade "the stupid party" to go along, they will then accept equal blame for the fiscal disasters that follow. Per Rush and other pundits, that will take the heat off Obama in the 2012 elections -- he can then claim the tsunami of federal debt now swamping the economy is a "bipartisan" effort, and that the GOP agreed with it, etc, etc.
Obama was so angry about the GOP refusal to go along, that he threw down his pacifier and left yesterday's meeting in a Huff. He was last seen pedaling the thing down a corridor of the White House, beeping the little rubber horn as he went.
A Huff, of course, is the new GM totally green car that was built with stimulus money and costs only $86,795 each. Since the new car is propelled by pedal power, it will have no negative impact on the environment. The economy? Well now, that's another story. If re-elected, Obama plans to be driven to his second inauguration in one.
Note to Republicans in Congress: Keep saying no. Or else. We vote. Or not.
