Skip to comments.Obama Calls Congress 'Banana Republic'—He Should Know
Posted on 09/20/2013 5:55:45 PM PDT by markomalley
"This is the United States of America," declared President Obama to the burghers of Liberty, Missouri, on Friday. "We're not some banana republic."
He was talking about the Annual Raising of the Debt Ceiling, a glorious American tradition that seems to come round earlier every year. "This is not a deadbeat nation," President Obama continued. "We don't run out on our tab."
True. But we don't pay it off either. We just keep running it up, ever higher. And every time the bartender says, "Mebbe you've had enough, pal", we protest, "Jush another couple trillion for the road. Set 'em up, Joe." And he gives you that look that kinda says he wishes you'd run out on your tab back when it was $23.68.
Still, Obama is right. We're not a banana republic, if only because the debt of banana republics is denominated in a currency other than their own ie, the U.S. dollar. When you're the guys who print the global currency, you can run up debts undreamt of by your average generalissimo. As Obama explained in another of his recent speeches, "Raising the debt ceiling, which has been done over a hundred times, does not increase our debt."

He really does think he is a dictator.
All because he is black.
Obama is an idiot.
Obama is an idiot.
Actually I don’t think he’s smart enough to be an idiot.
Yeah. Whatta laff. From the Third World Tinpot who tries to rule by Presidential Decrees - 900 some odd EO’s since he took office? End run around Congress on legalizing illegals?
Maximum Lider El Hussein.
I’m starting to believe that the US will hang a president from a lamppost. Now that indeed will make us a banana republic.
At the rate he has been making these wild, dumba$$ comments today, methinks he is a bit too wee-weed up.
A tinpot dictator needs a banana republic.
won’t be too many years before we realize we’ve been punked by a non-citizen intent from the get-go on destroying US. Hell, its already been proven, its just that no one can believe it happened here.
Must be we're gonna find out Hussein and his Moose Buddies are the ones that gassed all those poor Syrian cheeruns.
Is Joey B gonna call for limited strikes against DC?
Cerially though, this makes Hussein an international War Criminal!
Yes, we have no bananas.
After reading your post I had a scary thought. If we don’t hang him from a lamp post it would make us even more of a banana republic.
We have a dictator writing his own laws and calling them Executive Orders, this same Dictator has told Congress if they do not act he will make his own laws.
It isn’t a Banana Republic????? The hell it aint.
Those hits just keep on coming.
Many people love him and would like to elect him president for life, our own American “Dear Leader”.
