The most dangerous years of the Obama presidency are upon us
Legal Insurrection ^ | 1-26-2014 | William A. Jacobson

Posted on 01/26/2014 3:52:03 PM PST by servo1969

With Obama&'s State of the Union address coming up, it’s easy to breath a sigh of relief that another year is behind us, and he only has three more to go.

These are the three most dangerous years.

His time is running out, and he knows it. Obama’s rough 2013 prompts a new blueprint:

An internal White House assessment concludes that President Obama must distance himself from a recalcitrant Congress after being badly damaged last year by legislative failures, a government shutdown and his own missteps....

As a result, Washington veterans have been brought into the West Wing to emphasize an executive style of governing that aims to sidestep Congress more often&....

That point was more a reminder than a novel assessment. After Obama’s second inaugural address last January, Podesta, then head of the Center for American Progress, the administration’s off-campus think tank, said Obama “no longer feels to me like a prime minister.”

“He now understands the full range of the power of the presidency to get things done,” Podesta said at the time.

Now in the West Wing for a year-long stint as senior adviser, Podesta acknowledged that he was brought in partly to make that early prediction a reality….

“One of the things that I’ll be emphasizing in this meeting is the fact that we are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help that they need,” Obama told reporters before the session began. “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone.”

Holding the House and taking back the Senate in 2014, while extremely important, cannot stop someone who considers himself above it all.

A united front is needed for the next three years. So what is Republican and Congressional leadership planning?

A war on the Tea Party.

First two years were the most dangerous with triple control of govt.

Thankfully the regime spent all their time/political capital on Obamacare and didn’t get to Cap’N’Tax and card check.

It appears they'd rather go along to get along. On top of that, they don't know how to behave when they have the WH and majorities in both houses of Congress.

They should take a page from that scumbag Harry Reid - a total mass of smegma, but he, at least, appears to have read and understood Il Principe.

Indeed. The optimist in me says we will do that.

The realist says the uniparty holds power and more holes are drilled in our ship.

Elections are not going to tie his hands. He already knows that the populace is too damn chicken to stop him. The dems own and run the ballot box. If you are putting your hopes in that, you will be astounded and disappointed.

“and he knows” nothing. He’s a puppet. In the WH specifically to talk from a teleprompter and golf and eat. Nothing more.

But we mustn't forget that, even if the Republicans keep the House and take back the Senate, Obama still controls the EPA, IRS, FBI, HHS, HUD, etc.. They can hurt us more than Congress can -- and without a single vote.

That's what scares me.

That picture is so weird and awkward hanging with the others. It would seem they would have at least scaled it, used his full body and had it in color. The eye isn’t drawn through the room— the eye is drawn to Obama then after the eye treks down, onto the empty, thin table and there it ends.

The GOP is patiently sitting in line for their New World Order initiation badges. It is going to shock them to learn that Muslims will have priority in every line.

If the Republicans have both the House and the Senate, they are in a position to de-fund the EPA, HHS and HUD...and investigate the IRS and FBI.

But will they?

Like Huckabee (whom I have little in common with) I believe Obama will not see the end of his term. He will be forced out in 2015—or ???

And I think here's how it will happen: Edward Snowden will reveal that the NSA's gathering of data from the Internet and cellphones were used by the Obama Administration to target domestic political enemies in violation of a HUGE number of Federal laws. And we will find out that the Obama Administration stole and used IRS tax information for political reasons in violation of multiple Federal laws also.

I can't see them doing anything serious. I sure wish I was wrong. Unless something crazy happens like McConnell and Boehner getting thrown out -- doubt that, though.
