Obama: No haggling on debt ceiling, can use executive action to tighten gun laws

Excerpt:

President Obama on Monday warned congressional Republicans again that he will not negotiate over the debt ceiling, saying Washington must increase the limit to pay its bills and that such brinksmanship would be “absurd” and “irresponsible.”

“The issue here is whether Washington will pay its bills,” Obama said in the final press conference of his first term. “We are not a deadbeat nation.”

The president’s comments opened the roughly 30-minute White House question-and-answer session with reporters that focused largely on the debt ceiling and Obama’s gun-control plans in the aftermath of last month’s mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., in which 26 were killed.

Obama, who vowed following the Dec. 14 massacre to curb gun violence, repeated his promise.

“If there is a step we can take that will save even one child from what happened in Newtown, we should take that step,” said the president, who is expected to get strong opposition from gun rights groups should he submit legislation to Congress, as expected.

So I think I see obama's tactics. Other than his clearly obvious steps to destroy America. Is the way he's doing it. This evil person started drooling over the horrible Sandy Hook shooting tragedy. Why do I say this? Because he was already stressing seeing what appeared to be no one budging on the first part of the fiscal cliff. It appeared he would have to fall on his own sword. He realized he could propagate gun control knowing it would set off a "Powder Keg" of action. While he stirred this up he realized he could use/attempt to use it to get what he wants on gun control and the second part of the fiscal cliff. He wanted this distraction so bad and to stoke the flames hot. He figured he could put it to America so bad two ways at once. He didn't even wait. This is why he started saying I will threaten executive power, and try to scare them into rage so hard to make them pass what he wanted on the fiscal cliff. This way his blind, mindless, following drones will stir up so much distraction. Obama could act like he's making some compromising on some gun control measures when he knew never could legally. And then get what he wants on second part of the fiscal. Kind of like the Wizard of Oz and Ponzi scheme combined. "Don't look over there! Pay no attention to that curtain!" Hey look over here, I this great idea to help America. (Slight of hand, shift, change here) When the whole time he's plan is simple. He's a miserable narcissist bully, (insert other descriptions here) who wants to destroy America. Stop flinching, do not back down, and stand up to him you GOP cronies! Get a pair of balls. Your letting a bully push you around. We know what bullies are really made of and how to address them.

"Burning the bridge at both ends."

That is a very original mixed metaphor!

A complete revolution is being attempted. Look at the string of race war quotes out of Colin Powell this weekend, he is an Obama surrogate. The message is: “We are becoming the majority, do everything we want or be squashed, and charges of racism will be the hammer”.

I believe all this Obama/Lincoln crap we've been hearing is VERY dnagerous. Imagine how Obama sees Lincoln through his twisted marxist mind's eye. It's not hard to fathom, Obama wants to start a civil war (over "social justice") and be remembered for it.

If you mean blacks are the majority, they’re not and never will be, and neither Asians nor Hispanics are going to take their side. But what they have somehow done through the Democratic Party - or rather, the Dems have done it by using blacks as their battle standard - is to completely lock down and divert the political process. Probably if you asked most people, they’d say blacks are a majority in this country. But they’re 12%, and that’s only with heavily manipulated counting.

They’re being used, the black underclass is being promoted as the alinskyite vanguard of the revolution, but they’re getting goodies and are very happy to be used. Just yesterday there was a riot in Michigan when 5000 Obama voters turned out for 1000 Section 8 vouchers; this is all being carefully staged, and not by blacks.

He will be remembered. Just not the way he wants to be. More Nero than Lincoln.

OK,

You are tuned in, and seem to get it.

The whole gun thing is not going to happen.

This “public” effort is nothing more than a ruse to incite a reaction that then can be used to further an agenda.

0bama hopes that there will be a violent, gun toting patriot, which he can use as an example.

Homeland security against the hard core constitutionalists.

All for the greater good.

Obama’s debt ceiling position is like —

Your spouse asking for a new credit card, because your paycheck won’t cover your bills and payments on current cards.

America’s situation grows more dangerous each day. The more “edicts” this emperor-wannabe issues, the more irate Patriots become. They should be careful waving red flags in front of old bulls.

Obama wants his own “roman temple” memorial in Washington like Lincoln...Remember his DNC acceptance stage ? I think there is more to this Lincoln phenomenon of late than folks realize. He can’t save the nation from civil war if he first doesn’t start one.

The situation does indeed become more and more dangerous.

I am certain that he wants to provoke a violent response from an “irate patriot” so he can further his agenda.

This is not your fathers or grandfathers war.

This is a war not unlike that of the 1930’s Germany.

A country that voted for a dictator.

A country that effectively convinced everyday people to turn on those that spoke against this type of tyranny.

This is not a war that can be won on these grounds. Not under the current state of affairs.

I find myself in the camp of thinking that the only way out, the only way to overtake this president and the path we are on, is for us to fall behind a dedicated, charismatic military leader. One that can rally troops and control hard military assets. One that would not be afraid to take those patriots, those troops to Washington and hurl 120mm shells.

For those that don’t remember:

These tanks fired on the Russian Parliament.

I’m trying to find the video clip.

You don't “pay” bills by borrowing money. I wish I could pay all of my bills on a credit card and convince the credit card company to raise my credit limit even though I don't even pay the interest. However, if I did that I would be a dead beat.

I listened to Powell and thought that he had insulted his own career and accomplishments with the tripe coming out of his mouth. Such a sad and pitiful fall and indicative of what we are fighting against.

lol....I accept your apology: I quoted Obama. That’s who it was directed toward.

Deadbeats run up bills they can’t pay and then don’t pay them. They’re still deadbeats during the “run up” part.

Obama has been the worst of all those involved with the run up of the Federal debt, which is a debt we can’t pay. And we’re not going to. We’re just kicking it down to another generation that won’t be able to pay it.
