White House warns Obama could go around Congress
Yahoo News ^ | 26 Jan 2014

Posted on 01/26/2014 9:31:55 AM PST by mandaladon

WASHINGTON (AP) — The president's advisers are warning that if lawmakers won't work with the White House, the White House will go around them.

President Barack Obama makes his State of the Union address on Tuesday.

Top White House aides say Obama will try to work with Congress where it's possible.

But press secretary Jay Carney and senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer say the White House will take action with executive orders if needed.

On ABC's "This Week," Carney says the White House will "bypass Congress where necessary."

Pfeiffer tells "Fox News Sunday" that Obama, quote, "has a pen, and he has a phone, and he's going to use those."

Republican Sen. Rand Paul tells CNN's "State of the Union" that it sounds like a threat.

All that matters is what the Senate thinks. And Harry "Nuclear Option" Reid thinks Obama is doing just fine.

And don't think the average American will throw the bums out. The average American only knows what the MSM reports. So the average American is quite aware of Justin Bieber's arrest, and that's about it.

If the GOP-controlled Congress had at least a femtogram of testicular fortitude they would have impeached Traitorobama and his Gestapothugs every day Congress was in session.

Also no patriotic Senator, Congressman, or SCOTUS member would show up for the Traitorobama’s defecation on the SOTU. Let the Demonrats be the only ones who show up wearing their Monicakneepads.

Congress (House and Senate) GOPe have been repeatedly saying and demonstrating they won’t stand in his way, to the point they are verbally (and financially) sniping at those of us us who would. We’re getting awfully close to torches, pitchforks, tar and feathers.

The Little Dicktator has been ignoring the Constitution for the past 5 years. He’s by-passed Congress more than all of his predecessors, combined. Why the hell would he stop now? Are Boehner, Cantor, McConnell or John Cornyn going to do anything to stop him?

I kind of f*cking doubt it.

And don't think the average American will throw the bums out. The average American only knows what the MSM reports. So the average American is quite aware of Justin Bieber's arrest, and that's about it.

At least some of us understand the reality of the perverted culture that now surrounds us.

That same MSM reporting with glee the growing shouts from the likes of Cuomo, deBlasio and Schumer that Conservatives 'have no place here'.

We have a dictatorship and a fascist movement that has people in it who have advocated the genocide of millions of us who could not be 're-educated'. We're watching an entire oligarchy impose it's new order by fiat and the supposed 'opposition' confounded and capitulating to tyranny.

And few call it tyranny. Not surprising since so many will no longer call sin what it is either.

“Obama would be well advised that that is an impeachable offense and Americans are sick of his imperialistic crap.”

As the Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton impeachments demonstrated, unless the President is convicted by the Senate, the act of impeachment is meaningless.

The current Speaker of the House has no stomach for disciplining cabinet officers and other officials, much less the President. Look at how Eric Holder, Kathleen Sebellius, Janet Napolitano, and Lois Lerner have defied Congress.

Even if the House impeached the President, there is no way a Democrat controlled Senate, with a number of Democrat voting Republican compromisers, will vote to convict. The Republicans in the Senate would not vote together convict Bill Clinton in the 1990’s. It is impossible to imagine the first black president being impeached and convicted, no matter what he does.

In other words bammy the petulant narcissist is going to get his way no matter what. What about that little thing called checks and balances? Or that paper called the US Constitution?

Why is bammy not wearing an orange jumpsuit for the rest of his life?

In the case of Clinton, impeachment was worse than meaningless. Sure, there is now a footnote about it in the history books.

But Clinton was able to portray himself as the poor victim of all those mean Republicans. So impeachment actually helped him with his base.

With Obama, it would be ten times worse. Obama would portray himself as the poor victim of all those mean WHITE Republicans. That assertion would stick.

Don’t you just love how yahoo spins the headline from “will” to a more pleasant “could” go around Congress. They did that yesterday, too. Well, they and the rest of the msm does that constantly.
