Obama's Congressional puppets give him the green light to defy debt limit law

How would you describe Democrats in Congress who are urging the president to ignore the law and up the limit on government borrowing by executive fiat?

The party and ideology that passed the War Powers Act because they felt the executive had overstepped his authority in waging war, now proposes to lay down and grovel before the president, unilaterally giving up their prerogatives as co-equal partners in government.

It is sickening to watch.

Co-conspirators... and eventually, co-defendants.

At which point the House Judiciary Committee must begin hearings on articles of impeachment. Such articles should include ALL of Soetero’s crimes, violations and abuses against the Constitution. If nothing else, once the instruments are voted out and transmitted to the Senate, the American people will have before them, for the first time, a paper trail on Soetero.

Laws are for little people.

Wash, rinse, repeat over and over until we clean this stinking mess out of our political system and once again return to Constitutional government of the people by the people and for the people.

This is the end game.

It's why they want the guns, and it explains so many other things that have happened since 2009.

Congress won't pass an enabling act (I don't think), but I don't think they will stop him, either.

Either he runs the table, or we go over the edge into chaos and war.

Happy New Year.

Boehner is a chump, a speed bump in the annals of history, and the limpwrists in the House couldn’t muster the courage to oust him.

Will go down in history compared to the moment Trotsky failed to confront Stalin.

The US Dollar will cease to exist as a globally recognized store of wealth and free exchange, forever.

And no one in DC gives a damn cause their beds are feathered. They hate their own grandchildren and have cursed their futures, and why do you think a putz like Boehner cares about the grandchildren of the rest of the taxslaves in the country or the free world?

So tell me, we are paying them $172K + a boat load of benefits + all kinds of freebies to do what?

For all they do, we could pick chimps out of a zoo, feed them bananas and STILL get more results. Of course, this would be a job not even a chimp would do. So give him several chimpettes to fool around with.
