The same day, Obama whipped up a crowd at a Ford plant, complaining that by attaching conditions to the appropriations bill, House Republicans are "trying to mess with me."

Yes, they are, Mr. President, though Madison expressed it with more elegance and precision.

"An elective despotism is not the government we fought for," Madison wrote in Federalist 58. A president with the power to borrow and spend at will would be just that. Sadly, large numbers of Americans are at risk of being bamboozled by the Democrats' inflammatory accusations and warnings of a government shutdown.

Madison anticipated this threat to freedom. In Federalist 62, he warned that it will be pointless for Americans to elect a Congress, if it in turn enacts laws "too voluminous to be read," or if these laws then " undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows what the law is today can guess what it will be tomorrow." That's ObamaCare.

BTTT !

RINOs, given The POWER (by the People) in 2010, don't have the 'nads to use it.

Make Dingy pass a budget.

The bloodsucking congressional lampreys are very adept at grasping, rasping and sucking.

“Constitution? We don’t need no stinkin’ Constitution”. “We Won”.

I really despise Barack Obama and everything he stands for.

I want to thank you Jim for this site. Saved my sanity many times over. I am almost at my 13th year anniversary with FR (although I was a 2 year lurker. Too scared to post, I had seen some newbie flames, lol). What happened to this country with the attempt to steal the 2000 election galvanized me to stop lurking, put on my big girl panties, and start posting. Haven’ regretted it since.

Ever since FDR, the government has changed from an entity that exists “to secure these rights...” into a monster that gives out benefits and freebies and privileges to those they approve of.

And by “approve of”, that means the people and corporations and financiers who help the government stay in power.

To stay in power whatever it takes. By whatever means are necessary.

Anyone who thinks elections can make a peanut of a difference is sadly mistaken. Elections, NO MATTER WHO THE “WINNER” is, only exist to perpetuate the frauds. They have long ceased to make a difference. Look at Roberts and Obamacare.

If the Dems win this time, a few years from now the Pubbies will win. Rinse and repeat.

Both parties are laughing their nuts off. Continuously.

It’s been said that when somebody says anything about anything, they say something about everything. They manifest their thinking.

In the case of Obama, he tells the public he specialized in Constitutional Law at Harvard. If he is so well versed as a legal professional in Constitutional Law, he wouldn’t make such foolhardy statements about Congress.

Which gets back to the above quote. Maybe he really isn’t such a qualified legal expert, lacks knowledge of the Constitutional process, and is continuing to talk about things he really isn’t very qualified to discuss.

Not that they care about the Constitution anyway. The “progressive” mission has been to undermine and destroy the Constitution and the system the Founders set up.
