Posted on 10/04/2013 4:40:41 AM PDT by EBH
In the showdown over the shutdown of the U.S. government, the Obamaites tipped their hand yesterday as what their strategy is.
Taking a page out of Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals," the plan is to maximize the people's pain to maximize the political damage to the enemy, the Republican Party.What else explains it?Consider this:
Asked Wednesday if there were any danger of America defaulting on her debt, President Obama rushed to assure a reporter that, yes, indeed, there certainly is such a peril. Why would a president act in so perverse a manner, were he not trying deliberately to rattle or panic the markets? Obama's tactic worked. Thursday, the Dow plunged below 15,000.
This is all about a petulant president whose prize program the people do not want, but who insists it be imposed upon them, to assure himself a paragraph in the history books. This week, Republicans tried to pass legislation that would keep open all memorials and monuments, all tourist sites in Washington, D.C., and all programs for America's veterans.
Who stonewalled that? Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Obama. Why would Reid sabotage the funding the National Institute of Health. Why would Reid sabotage what is transparently a humanitarian act? Again, Reid and Obama do not want to ease the pain of the people.
They want to intensify that pain, ratchet it up, maximize it, to put maximum pressure on and do maximum damage to the GOP. The Obama-Reid strategy is, in a word, sadistic. They are inflicting pain on fellow Americans to break their political enemies. And they can only succeed in sustaining their Big Lie that it is Republicans who want to keep the government shut down because of a collaborationist press.

Petulant is putting it very mildly. Try sugar-blasted, nap-deprived two-year old spoiled brat with a poopy diaper...
The only problem is that it won’t work, American’s know who is responsible for their pain-Obama!
He is dangerous soul-less individual who is backed up by a powerful ex-angel who’s spirit is wandering the earth just waiting for his time.
His economic sense is that of your two year old in a toy store
I hope and pray republicans come up with a narragive or something today to point out how they have to pick up this toddler and swoop him pat the cash register
The media is in full blitz against tho GOP and it is wearing
There’s a word in Yiddish for what this guy is, But I won’t post it here!
I emailed my Congressman and told him to stand strong against GOP Leadership. Keep the government closed until
the other side blinks and appease US for a change.
I told him as long as he kept strong, he had no worries about remaining in Congress to repair this country.
“This Is All About a Petulant President”
Everyone is leaving out the fact that Obumbo is a Marxist/Leninist, just as his father. He expects an America that mirrors the old Communist central/east Europe.
Somewhat off topic, but....
Has anyone seen or heard anything from the other half of the famous comedy team of Obama and Biden???
I don’t blame “O” but I do blame the people who supported him and made it possible for him to walk into the WH....
Face it, the evil doers would have found someone ELSE if “O” did not come along.
I blame American voters who sold themselves for free phones, etc.! THAT’S a pretty paltry trade off if you ask me!
The Dems passed an ugly law on party lines, in the dark, unread, using bribes and parliamentary parlor games. Barry signed it, then we all read is and became nauseated. The Supremes morphed a mandate to buy a product into a tax, then Barry re-wrote the law like a banana republic dictator. How about taking the entire case back to Roberts et al to demonstrate that this sequence of events and the law itself is unconstitutional, Why are we tolerating an imperial president to creating and modifying law out of whole cloth, singlehandedly? "Law of the land" is a phony argument.
Based on the antics above, why are we not seeking impeachment?
Where do we find "continuing resolution" in the Constitution? "Regular order" calls for a series of bills (not piecemeal but planned). Any "grand bargain" is clearly not in the spirit of the Constitution.
Barry, Harry, and SanFranNan are leading an illegal strike. Get back to work, slackers!
Well, he also added “sadistic” in the article.
....because that's the least likely path to success....
Fellow citizens, it is my great honor to introduce His Petulancy, the President of the Benighted States of America.
I Love Yiddish.
When we were in Germany, my cousins from Rockland county were visiting. My cousin kept using usual Yiddish terms farm boy hubby had not heard.
He said, you know, Yiddish is a German dialect.
We brought the big German English dictionary with us on our road trips.
We found like a hundred familiar terms in there.
Sometimes English just doesn’t have the right word and Yiddish is onomatopoeic.
OK. So why not bring it back to SCOTUS?
Like I said before: Obama is a walking rectum, but he is also a hypnotist.
Reid, Pelosi, and 90% of the Democrats and some RINO’s are sitting on their hands and watching this disaster called Obama, phuck over our country and helping him do it.
Are they petulant too, or are they greedy—cowards—stupid—blind—deaf—can they really believe they are smarter than Americans who are clamoring to kill this bill they forced through in the middle of the night without reading it?
Yes: They will gain a few minority and ignorant votes by shoving this bill down our throats, but who will pay for it when it forces more people into bankruptcy? Wait until the low info voters find out Grandma is as good as dead when she needs medical care. Who will give that care when Doctors drop out of the payment plan the Government sets up? When the hospitals are closed.
That’s an idea, but how would you propose to do that?
So now he shows how tough he really is by calling the Tea Party foul names and having federal employees push 90 year old WWII vets around.
Why, that would be the PTB that gave us McCain (who would've annihilated the world by now with his wars) and Romney (who campaigned hard against fellow 'pubs but didn't stand strong attacking Obama).
The problem is the establishent global-corporatist RINOs who STILL want to cave and don't care about the presidency, as long as they get the power and kickbacks as the pathetic opposition.
Obama is who he is. It's the RINO 'pubs who are frauds, every campaign.
I'm hoping by now even the most ardent leftist is beginning to see through his tired tactics.
Because he is...The Most Arrogant Man in the World
We do the same thing. I wish I knew latin. The kids are learning it. We were very busy in HS. Not enough time between choruses of kumbaya and reading I’m ok you’re ok in theology class to focus on the classics
My HS French comes in handy
You want a real glimpse of wonderful Jewish culture language and humor reruns of the Namny. Forget the whining. Her affection for her culture and devotion to God and fily come through Her mother brings it home so to speak. Well it brings me back to LI.
May the Schwartz be with you.
Congress and Obama passed a measure to fund active-duty military on Monday. But the Senate and Obama refuse to pass the other partial funding measures sent by the House, which cover pretty much everything people are complaining about being shut down. So now you know who’s responsible. The Repubs say open these things up, Obama says no most of the time.
“Active duty military will continue to serveand will get paid, thanks to a last-minute measure passed by Congress Monday and signed by the president less than two hours before the government shutdown.”
Well I was trying to be display some restraint ....But both words fit just fine!
Yes, The Guyland.
Also, the law that Roberts morphed from a mandate to a tax is no longer the law that was in front of him.
It will not be popular, but when do we have our belly full of an imperial president who acts outside of the Constitution which he hates with all his being?
Actually, it was not changed on a whim, it was changed in a Tweet....literally. I am sure the Founders never thought that 1) a president would re-write a low after he signed it, or 2) a presidential edict could originate from a Twitter posting.

I think that’s a fantasy. I don’t think you can sue a President in the first place...and again, not the best way to defeat Obama. You are looking for something that suits your cajones/macho meter....I’m looking for something that will work.
Take heart. Don’t give up then fight.
Today, the WW2 vets are taking one more beachhead:
What will work, since passively rolling over, appeasement, and acceptance has not been successful?
I am not susceptible to straw arguments. Your notion that there’s only two choices, suing or appeasement, is a level of debate below what I am able to access. Enjoy it down there....
So what are the high minded thinking to extricate us from this mess? I just might be able to understand if you use small words.
I like that idea, to challenge it that way, in the House. I agree with McCarthy that is the best way to go. This is totally different than Ted Cruz or any Senator suing the President - which is what you suggested I think.
I would also say that I wrote at length, in American Thinker, Breitbart, and two books that the GOP was making a huge mistake to leave it to the courts. I wrote that well before the ridiculous Roberts’ ruling.
And for how to extricate ourselves from this mess? That’s a tough question, and the first thing is for more people to realize, like you and I both do, that we are indeed IN A MESS. It’s going to take a lot of things happening simultaneously - and if the GOP would follow McCarthy’s suggestion, that would be a good development indeed.
