Time for Obama to go 'gangsta' on GOP (Mega-Barf)
CNN ^ | http://www.cnn.com/2010/OPINION/02/09/martin.obama.republicans/index.html?iref=mpstoryview | Staff

Posted on 02/12/2010 5:36:05 AM PST by Red in Blue PA

This president got rolled by the Senate over health care. His team made some boneheaded mistakes, and now they are paying for them. Continuing to play footsie with opponents will only get him into more trouble. He should set a deadline to have his folks confirmed. If not, appoint them all during the recess and go on about your business.

Obama's critics keep blasting him for Chicago-style politics. So, fine. Channel your inner Al Capone and go gangsta against your foes. Let 'em know that if they aren't with you, they are against you, and will pay the price.

Gangsta is okay, but calling him a professor is racist? Is it opposite week?

I’m glad that we are filibustering a few of his extremely controversial appointments. But in general, I think the president deserves an up or down vote on his nominees.

The interesting thing is how few of the nominees Reid has been willing to bring to the floor for debate. Forget cloture — Reid refuses to allow any debate on the nominees at all.

Reid would rather hold up the nominations than let it come out how bad the nominees are. On the few he brought to the floor, he immediately invoked cloture (because he had the 60 votes) and then so far as I can tell he did not have 30 hours of debate on them — which I don’t understand how he got away with that, he waited the 30 hours before the final vote, but I was sure that 30 hours had to be debate time.

If he was going to “go gangsta” on anyone it would be Democrat moderates. Republicans haven’t done a thing to stop his agenda because it is not within their power to do so.

This sorry excuse for an article does 2 things. It tries to misdirect readers by pointing to Republicans as the source of O’s woes and it manages to be racist to boot. If a conservative pundit had used that terminology in describing O he or she would be out of a job.

Rapper 'Ludacris'

Lyrics to Ludacris' Obama rap song, "Obama Is Here":

"Hey... I'm back on it

like I just signed my record deal, yeah the best is here

The Bentley Coupe paint is drippin wet, it got sex appeal

Never shoulda hated, you never shoulda doubted him

With a slot in the President's iPod, Obama shouted him

Said I handled my biz and I'm one of his favorite rappers

Well give Luda a special pardon if I'm ever in the slammer

Better yet put me in office, make me a Vice President

Hillary hated on you so that bitch is irrelevant

Now Jesse talkin slick and apologizin for WHAT~?!

If you said it then you MEANT it how you want it, head or gut

And all you other politicians tryin to hate on my man

Watch us win majority vote in every STATE on my man

You cain't stop what's 'bout to happen, we 'bout to make history

The first black President it's destined and it's meant to be

The threats ain't fazin us, the nooses or the jokes

Get off your ass black people it's time to get out and vote

Paint the White House black and I'm sure that's got 'em terrified

McCain don't belong in ANY chair unless he's paralyzed

Yeah I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped

Ball up all of his speeches and just throw 'em like candy wraps

Cause what you talkin I hear nothin even relevant

And you the worst of all 43 Presidents

Get out and vote, or the end'll be near

And the world is ready for change cause Obama is here

YEAHHH! Cause Obama is here

The world is ready for change cause Obama is here

Yeahhhh, cause Obama is here

Say world is ready for change cause Obama is here

Hey!

CNN are LIARS !

ZERO has had 61 votes in the Reid Senate and a large majority vote in the Pelosi House of Representatives. ZERO has a revolt within his own party at the DNC.

ZERO has not needed the GOP in past.

If all of them choose to support a filibuster, then you take it to the American people and show the obstructionists for what they are.

Yea. He should go to the American people and make that case that his nominees aren't the freakishly loony left wing nut cases they obviously are.

-- he waited the 30 hours before the final vote, but I was sure that 30 hours had to be debate time. --

The Senate can make that 30 hours be an instant, by unanimous consent, and has done so on occasion. See numerous unanimous consent agreements calling for a cloture vote, then "if cloture passes, to move immediately to vote on ..." It is typical, however, to treat the 30 hours as a literal 30 hour clock that runs whether the Senate is open for business or not. I've never heard an objection to the protocol of counting the time that the Senate is shut down for the night against the 30 hours of post-cloture time, nor any objection to the clock running while the Senate is open but idle (the routine "quorum call" condition). The relevant language in Rule XXII is:

After no more than thirty hours of consideration of the measure, motion, or other matter on which cloture has been invoked, the Senate shall proceed, without any further debate on any question, to vote on the final disposition thereof ...

Obama may go down as the MOST HATED President is US history!
12 Feb. 2010
“...The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 25% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-nine percent (39%) Strongly Disapprove which gives Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -14 (see trends)...”

“...verall, 46% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. Fifty-two percent (52%) now disapprove...”

It's the "Chicago Way"...

Justice Department Briefing on Blagojevich Investigation:
Patrick Fitzgerald, United States attorney general for the Northern District of Illinois [speaking to press]:
Published: December 9, 2008, New York Times

Excerpts from the transcript:

Fitzgerald: "In the governor's words -- governor's words, quote, 'Fire all those bleeping people. Get them the bleep out of there. And get us some editorial support', close quote. And the bleeps are not really bleeps."

(snip)

Fitzgerald: "A month or so ago a $1.8 billion tollway project was announced. While that tollway project was being announced, Governor Blagojevich was privately seeking to have a person benefiting from that contract raise $100,000 in contributions, and privately the government (sic) said, 'I could have made a larger announcement but wanted to see how they would perform by the end of the year. If they don't perform, bleep 'em.' That's a quote. And the word 'bleep' was not the word he used."

(snip)

Fitzgerald: "The governor's own words describing the Senate seat, quote, 'It's a bleeping valuable thing -- thing. You just don't give it away for nothing', close quote."

Fitzgerald: "Another quote, 'I've got this thing, and it's bleeping golden. And I'm just not giving it up for bleeping nothing. I'm not going to do it, and I can always use it; I can parachute me there,' quote. Those are his words, not our characterization, other than with regard to the bleep."

Fitzgerald: "The tapes reveal that Governor Blagojevich wanted a number of things in exchange for making the appointment to the Senate seat -- an appointment as secretary of health and human services or an ambassadorship, an appointment to a private foundation, a higher paying job for his wife or campaign contributions."

"In between his stints in Washington, Emanuel got rich working as an investment banker. He once sat on the board of Freddie Mac and recuses himself from any Congressional votes on the mortgage giant."

"Has been known to send out cheesecakes from Eli's Bakery in Chicago to campaign donors and the many Democratic candidates he has recruited over the years. Once, when a pollster made him angry, Emanuel sent him a dead fish."

Let 'em know that if they aren't with you, they are against you, and will pay the price.

That was the philosophy Bush articulated in international relations -- you were either with us in the war against terrorism or against us. The leftist kooks went bonkers over that approach, even though it worked for 8 years.

Now it's ok to use the same approach against your domestic rather than foreign enemies?

Lefty hypocrisy knows no bounds.

up or down votes are fine if the majority isn't overwhelmingly one party or the other. There is no way a fair vote can be taken. Not only that, Republican nominees never get a fair up or down vote or do you forget Bush had to recess appointed Bolton?

These clowns do forget that recess appointments are temprorary. Also, they have the votes, or did have, to over ride any filibuster, why didn't they do it?
