Skip to comments.Obama orders Boehner, McConnell, to report to him Saturday morning
Posted on 07/22/2011 4:12:37 PM PDT by pabianice
In an eye-poppingly nasty and derranged press conference, Obama ordered Boehner and McConnell to appear before His Majesty tomorrow morning (7/23) at 1100 (that's 11:00, military time). The conference was called by The One to express his displeasure with the Repubs because they refuse to accept almost $2 trillion in new spending in order for the debt ceiling to be raised "until 2013" so Obama doesn't have to deal with that issue as he runs for reelection.
I am calling Boehner's office to urge him to stay home tomorrow. Remember Obama's private army "to be as well trained and equipped as the US Army" but reporting to him as his praetorian guard? Maybe he'll send them to round-up Republicans.
FUBO at 11
betcha obama’s late for the meeting....
Yep, the King has ordered his subjects to attend his meeting. Maybe he should be told that the Speaker is a citizen of the U.S. and can’t be ordered around by a King.
Oh.... and don't forget the clown costume for Joe.
i want my budget and i want it now!
is this guy serious?? he looks like a little dictator up there demanding his way.
it’s time for a change.
They shouldn’t go. Barry will blow a gasket and go on TV to have a tantrum. Why bother to do anything he asks even if he doesn’t blow a gasket? All he’s doing is trying to ride in on a chariot at the last minute and tell the mere mortals what they have to do and no matter what sort of concession he might make at this point, it’ll be portrayed as Barry saving the country.
Just don’t go. Tell him that the Senate left town and there’s no reason to show up until they’re back.
What’s he going to do, have them arrested?
Zero is fuming he’s been ‘left at the alter a couple of times’
what he doesn’t get is, the Affirmative Action card doesn’t work when you’re sitting in the chair in the Oval office of the White House.
I’m wondering how fast protests across the United States could be organized? WE all can’t fly to DC, but if millions show up at the local offices across this great nation at 1100 hours...to support our country?
Boehner should quote Tony Montana and say, “The only thing in this world that gives orders... is balls.” then he should add “You can stick your orders in your a$$ with your head.”
Boehner: “I'll be washing my hair tomorrow.”
Mitch: “Sorry,I'm on my period.”
“Ordered?”! Man, Hussein is totally off the rails at this point. Expect that Boehner is laughing his ass off. (I know I am.)
We shall see if Bonehead and The Gobbler make a B-Line To The White House tomorrow, after Zero dis-respected them both in public.
I would not be surprised if both ran back to serve their Master.
The king summoning his ministers is an un-American image. But the president is playing a role in a drama he’s scripted and the moral of the play is designed to make the Democrats seem to be the voices of reason on election day in 2012.
0bie’s trying to get in dictator mode. He’s not that good as the only thing he knows he’s read in books.
Can he ‘order’ another branch of the governnment to do that?
“FUBO at 11”
I second that!
ABC radio just announced it as ‘Obama takes the wood to the republicans’....(eye roll). LOL...very strange metaphor considering the modern vernacular and all.
==Get the 25th Amendment crew ready with the straitjacket and rubber room.==
Yes I have thought for a while about bringing this up. I’m not joking.
He “ordered” the majority and minority leaders of both Houses.
Tell Obama no more conversations until he produces a valid budget proposal- scored by the CBO. That should keep him preoccupied for the next month, or so.
Just another example of Obama's incompetent 'leadership'.
The perfect response from Boehner would be is to tell Obama that he cannot break his Saturday golf commitment.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives is a Constitutionally mandated position, and the Speaker is 3rd in line (counting the current occupant) to the presidency.
The Speaker has always been seen as the head of the body that is most responsive to and most in touch with the people of the US. It is the House that is the sole originator of any bills for raising revenue.
The Speaker’s position is every bit as separate and significant as the President’s, and the Speaker is NOT in any way at all answerable to the President, who is Commander and Chief ONLY of the military.
The Speaker should not respond to an imperial-sounding summons or order ever! That is not the type of government we have.
Additionally, I’d like to see Boehner start calling as many press conferences with preliminary speech stating positions as does Obama. Even if only from the floor of the House, it will be, at least, carried on C-Span. Hopefully, Fox will cover it.
Anybody got a link to the video?
They should just note themselves “Present”
White House: Real debt deal deadline is July 22 ("Drop- Dead Date")

To what? When was this? Where was this?
It is time for Boehner to come in Saturday morning with Articles of Impeachment.
What Boehner and Mitchell should do is tell barry that they have plans for tomorrow, don’t say what and then.... wait for it... go play golf together at “obastard’s” own course and have a HUGE entourage with them. Hire camp followers if they have to. Laugh it up, smoke cigars and have a few drinks.
Oh yes, make sure they are on the back 9 at 1100 hrs.
Stand Obama up and start cutting big time in the trillions.
That’s jsut it...OBAMA HAS NOTHING.
Demanding “his way” is meaningless because he doesn’t have a plan. He doesn’t have a budget. He has NOTHING except empty rhetoric!
America’s best economic plan would be Articles of Impeachment.
They could DEEM that they actually went.
Please Boehner, do not give obamma a free pass past the 2012 elections, by agreeing to a debt-limit increase until 2013! This needs to be a 2012 election issue to force true changes! Please do not do this!
Oh, I can’t do anything now, I’m going to a birthday party this weekend!
Articles of Impeachment...by Saturday.
I am "cracking up"!.....laughing, that is. Obama ORDERED Boehner and McConnell to appear before the throne???? Gee. The way I learned it, the legislative, executive and judicial branches of our government were CO-EQUAL branches.
Wonder what Blackwater ( a.k.a. Xe Services ) is doing these days?
I’m gonna invoke Godwin’s Law on this thread and just say that Barry is going to go down like Adolf... In a bunker surrounded by all his enemies and still plotting the takeover of the world.
He doesn’t HAVE a budget! He has a goodies list that he wants delivered to him, with NO specifics as to how they will be paid for; not to mention the absence of ANY leadership on attacking the deficit!
