Could This Be Why Obastard is Being such a Jerk?
Now | Me

Posted on 10/08/2013 9:32:32 AM PDT by Cyber Liberty

OK, it's a vanity. Deal.

I haven't heard this possibility brought up, but that might be because I haven't read every post. It's been a very busy week, and Obastard is doing his best to overflow the piss-off bucket. But, a thought dawned upon me yesterday when I was reading a story in IBD about the next big scary deadline coming up, the Debt-Limit that we're supposed to hit on 10/17.

I think Obastard is being a total pr**k about shutting down parks, landmarks and private property because he's building up cred for a threat he intends to pull next week. He's lost a lot of credibility with his threats recently because, at least on the foreign scene, he's been shown to be rather, uh, "toothless."

What's the big threat? We're all expecting it so I don't think I'm shocking anybody when I say he intends to deliberately default on our bond interest payments. It's well known that he doesn't have to do that, and any normal business would ensure the bond-holders get serviced first, but I think he's planning to stiff the folks holding the debt, and that's us. Yes, the Chinese will take it in the shorts, but I think the Fed holds the biggest chunk of the debt these days. At least, they're the only fools buying it lately, since the S&P downgrade.

He's infuriating everybody right now for the same reason a battleship bombards an enemy before an invasion: To "soften us up." He would rather create mayhem the likes we haven't seen in my lifetime than try to get spending under control. He wants to deliberately crash the economy, and this is his big chance, all the while blaming the Republicans, especially TEA Partiers. We're all Emmanuel Goldstein now.

I see a golden opportunity to put troops in the streets, and dissidents in jail.

I think he’s being a jerk precisely because he is a petty, vindictive jerk.

It’s surely a possibility. He has proven himself to be a very small man, smaller in stature than even Jimmy Carter.

Obama is being a jerk because he/it is an evil communist jerk.

The democrat voters trust government cause they see everything working . but they don't understand that private businesses are what are making things run. a private business like subway or toyota has to produce a good product . so they have to work and no one has to watch them. but government is a different story. voters aren't wacthing what the IRS goons or the UN goons are doing. and even if there is a smart and good person in government as in teacher that is trying to teach even they can't teach students how to read in the government schools because government/socailism can never work. look at freidman, Hayek and your commen sense to understand why .

He is a vindictive jerk and that is being kind. What he is doing here is simple, he is not going to let anyone P on his parade or dis him in anyway. It is the way of the obongo tribe. He got disrobed on international platform by Putin, aided by the US public so he is going to punish those he can. The biggest group in his sights is small business owners and individual proprietors who frankly hate him as a general rule. This is his moment and he is not going to let it go. Also, his buddy in the Senate gets to stick it to the tea party which tried to unseat the other POS in the Senate last election.

When the dust settles and his majesty is out of office, first thing the new hopefully right leaning president does is put a strike force group of attorneys in Nevada and indict and put in jail Reid.

IMHO, Obama has two immediate goals here.

One is to preserve his total control over Obamacare. The second is to damage the Republicans. If he could shift the blame onto the GOP House, then, yes, he would default on bond payments.

But that's not a given that the press and public would give Obama a complete pass on a default. Default is a very big deal, and Obama is by nature risk-adverse. So I don't think he'll take the chance. My prediction: no default.

unchartered territory

This country has a history a couple of centuries long, so I always hesitate to suggest we're somewhere we've never been before, but if we default on the bond payments, or cut off SS to people, we will indeed be in uncharted territory.

I don’t mind any vanity with the word “Obastard” in it ;-)

But I believe you’re over-thinking it. He’s not going to do anything regarding default, although without a doubt Ms. Jarret aka the Lady behind the Curtain, is guiding his actions through this. And those actions are predicated on the theory (and polling) that shows they can make this shutdown as miserable as possible and the low-information People will blame the Republicans.

If the tables were turned, I’d like to think “we” would act differently. But, it’s politics...

Remember that President of China and King of Saudi Arabia he bowed to? They wouldn’t take too kindly to his global economy-busting narcissism and they could give rat’s exithole who he blames it on.

The Secretary of the Treasury can/should/will pay the interest on the debt without the Presidents authority. If the interest goes into default impeach the Treasury Secretary first, get his testimony on the Presidents involvement first. Then go after POTUS.

Considering the way he treated his mother, and the grandmother who raised him, it wouldn’t surprise me if he cut off SS to the seniors.

He appears to have little caring or concern for them, and shame on the democrats in congress for putting up with this narcissistic sociopath.

I hope that that petulant imbecile in the black hut does not have the power to do this. The fact that he’s a puppet implies that he can’t necessarily do whatever he wants without repercussion if it doesn’t mesh well with the grand plan. The grand plan is what bothers me most.

I think he will pay the interest

BUT he will find the most vindictive things possible not to pay. Everything remotely ‘conservative’ will be on the list. And the list will include everything that will be painful to the working class. The welfare checks will still go out.

Your scenario is definitely on my list of probabilities. If he were to stick with exactly what he’s been doing for the past week, Senior Citizens, disabled folks and Medicare Docs are on the chopping block. Meanwhile, yes, EBT cards will be charged as normal. Doesn’t want to piss off his homies.

I agree Obama is a jerk.

He just cannot stand the thought that he might get beaten on this.

He is doing his best to make this as bad as possible, but I believe it is hurting him instead of doing what he thought it would do.

As for a “ golden opportunity to put troops in the streets, and dissidents in jail.”
That could backfire big time. He is making ever effort to get America’s guns and ammunition confiscated, but it hasn’t happened yet.

I think he might be aiming to cut off the EBT bennies too. Senior citizens won’t immediately begin to riot, loot and burn down their cities, but the EBT crowd surely will. He might cut off ALL “entitlement” benefits, knowing that this will cause a social convulsion of such enormity, that he will be able to announce direct rule by the National Emergencies Act.

I don't even think he's actually calling the shots in these random closings. He's just telegraphed the message that he wants pain caused and there are myriad little bureaucrat tyrants just chomping at the bit to excercise a little a-THOR-a-tay and break the balls of the non-government functionaries they despise.

He has created a culture that stresses the concept that the citizens all function and live at the fragile benevolence of the federal government, and there are plenty on the other side of that line who embrace the idea that they are in charge. Obama's world view complements the one they've envisioned since they were bullied in high school. We must all respect their awesome power or they will make us pay the price.

As far as defaulting, he won't do that because it will be the final nail locking down his worst president ever title, which he still thinks isn't his. He probably thinks it belongs to Reagan.

Your theory is plausible, and I have thought the same thing.

Certainly a possibility. After all, who would've imagined WWII Veterans threatened with arrest while illegal aliens be permitted to hold their rally on the National Mall? Isn't that backwards? Barry is out to undermine and sabotage everything American.

Keep your eye on the movement of military domestically, and other security forces. Remember those large ammo purchases? And why did Janet Napolitano vacate her post and WHY has no one been appointed to fill that position? That could be a clue. Barry is empowering his Park Rangers and other security people with more intrusive actions and belligerent attitudes.. What gives?

Everything has to do with keeping it fully intact.

Including mere distractions like a full default on the debt.

I confess that when Bush Jr. was elected I told people that all we did by electing him was put off the inevitable by four years. I said the same thing when he was re-elected but not sure we really put anything off.

It’s running full speed ahead now. I do not think we will survive a full obama term.

Wasn’t it the Holy Reverend Jesse Jackson who himself said in 2008 “He’s not one of us!” ? Obummer is not part of the American fabric, doesn’t feel it, never felt it. And now, seeing that nobody will hold his feet to the fire, because, let’s face it, that’s how our system works when the MSM is on your side (as it’s been on the side of the blackmailer Jackson, if you need examples), he feels no sense of responsibility to anybody or anything.

My scenario: Just as he did with the CR, he will demand of the Republicans in Congress a “clean” debt limit raise, with zero future limits or conditions. The Republicans will either totally cave and accede to this demand, or they will hold out and be blamed for pushing the USA over the “debt cliff.”

Obama then cuts off all entitlement payments. No SS, pensions, or indirect EBT payments (they are doled out by the states.)

Once the EBT payments stop, our cities will EXPLODE and Obama will have his “emergency” and will announce fiat rule by the National Emergencies Act.

As long as Obama/Jarrett etc believe that the MSM will cover his flanks and blame the Republicans for the chaos, what will stop him?

He gets to declare the “Tea Party terrorists” to be “enemies of the state,” and rule as a dictator. It’s win-win for Obama.
