Channeling His Inner Chavez

Obama expressed to the National Council of La Raza today his frustrations with our pesky system of a representative republic …

Why stop now, Barry? For over two and a half years you have gone around the US Constitution and the US Congress, not to mention in defiance of the will of the American people. You are not a “king”

Between 6 p.m. Friday and 4 p.m. Sunday, the nation began a constitutional course-correction. The current occupant’s vanity and naivete — a dangerous amalgam — are causing the modern presidency to buckle beneath the weight of its pretenses. And Congress is reasserting its responsibilities.

At his Friday news conference-cum-tantrum, Barack Obama imperiously summoned congressional leaders to his presence: “I’ve told” them “I want them here at 11 a.m.”

By Saturday, his administration seemed to be cultivating chaos by suddenly postulating a new deadline: The debt-ceiling impasse must end before Asian markets opened Sunday evening Eastern time, lest the heavens fall.

Those markets opened; the heavens held. The faux deadline, reportedly invoked at a Saturday White House meeting by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who should resign, inevitably seeped into the media and invited overseas panic, thereby risking the nation’s currency, for brief tactical advantage.

Amid these tawdry episodes, House Speaker John Boehner signaled constitutional sanity regained: “Congress will forge a responsible path forward.” Congress. Obama has marginalized himself.

  1. And yes, there are still people (besides blacks) who will vote again for this appalling embarrassment, which is a rather kind way to describe him. Maybe I should just retire to some cave in the desert and be done with so much lunacy.
