Obama: 'I Don't Have Time to Waste. The Clock Is Ticking.'
The Weekly Standard ^ | Mar 12, 2014 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 03/12/2014 9:34:50 AM PDT by Cheerio

President Obama knows that his time is almost up. It's a point he's making to liberal Democratic donors to get them to donate generously in this year's mid-term election.

At a Democratic fundraiser last night in New York City, President Obama said, "I hope you will all step up because, although I'm very optimistic about our long-term trends, the notion that we would waste two years in further inaction rather than move boldly on a path that I think all of us in this room agree on -- we don't have time to waste."

The president continued, "I don't have time to waste. The clock is ticking. There’s less than two years left -- less than three years left. I want to squeeze every last little bit of work that I can during the remainder of my term so that, looking back, I'm going to be able to say that we left everything on the field and every single person I could help in this office -- which is such an incredible privilege -- I helped."

Does anyone honestly believe that the WH Clown thinks this is going to be his last term? After the whipping the RATS are going to take in 2014, the RAT squeals will be heard for the repeal of the 22nd Amendment in earnest this time.

I’ll lay money on it that he will either try to repal the 22nd amendment or declare martial law in the next two years to extend his presidency.

He’s frantically trying to figure out how to declare martial law and suspend the 2016 elections. If he can crash the currency or something I’m sure he’ll do it.

I think all of us who are actually pay attention to what is going on senses that the progressives think that this is their moment, and that they will go to any lengths to see their agenda through. They will never give it up willingly, and certainly not through the quaint process of fair elections.

Obama has armed practically every branch of his civilian army, less the teachers of course.

What won't happen - the squeals or the Amendment? Of course the Amendment will not happen prior to Nov 2016, but do you still think he will leave the White Hut? He changes laws willie nilley and shreds the Constitution weekly. Why should the 22nd Amendment apply to him? He will have Holder issue an opinion, and then just issue an EO. Preposterous? He record on following his oath of office is plain for all to examine.

...or he can just sign an Executive Order extending his 2nd term indefinitely.

You know I see this type of behavior among professional conman I’e investigated for years. The put all their chips on the table never thinking they will lose. They have an invincibility complex.

What’s 0 going to do if all the brownshirts and military he’s so heavily armed do an about face and point the weapons at him?

He won’t be president, but he’ll keep his face in the news, and he’ll stay in DC, probably.

Once his face is gone, opposition to his policies can no longer be portrayed as “racist”. And this is the only thing that’s keeping them in place, because it sure isn’t the success of these policies.

Therefore, he has to stay there to keep things from being rolled back.

The president’s window may already be closed. He can only change things through the bureaucratic agencies(which, as we have seen, can be very very dangerous).

Sorry, IMHO a revolt by brain dead Americans is no longer a possibility. Not even a march on the Capitol.

The only issue that might cause a revolt would be registration and confiscation of firearms. That seems to be one item that both parties agree is unthinkable.

Just look at his immigration policy,open borders,decimating the military,eliminating our nuclear deterrent by reducing our warheads to levels which will lead to Russia contemplating a first strike that can be successful,I believe he is intentionally or not setting the country up for a huge terror attack,which will allow him to do what you suggest

The Supremes will tell him REAL quick that doing that is just plain unconstitutional.

THEN he will declare martial law.

He won’t need the 22nd amendment,if terrorists coming across the border launch terrorist attacks,or Russia decides that it is possible for them to launch a first strike against us because the clown would wet his pants,then its Marshall law

Time is short....

Definitely a two headed statement.

Does he mean time is shortening up till WE finally nail him?
Is that what ‘scares’ him?

I still think SHE will run and HE will be her ‘RIGHT HAND’, and make ‘every decision’.

They will gloss it over so it will look like she is Prez but in actuality it will be the same ‘team’ of handlers that has their hand up his arse, directing things.

Not that the Constitution ‘bothers’ him but I don’t think even the Pols will overlook the ‘Constitutionality’ of him being VP....Isn’t one of the conditions of VP that you be eligible to be Pres IN ALL ASPECTS.

‘They’ are allowed to skip over a Cabinet Head or Speaker etc if they are not eligible but VP has to be ‘vetted’(HA HA) in the same manner as the President, or in the case of this mismaladministration, the pResident.

” - - - the oligarchs have no use for the commoner and will not give a damn about them. They will use their robots and drones to maintain their dominance. - - - “

Hmmmmm - - - - - ?

This COULD be a valid description of Obamanation, but just what is an “oligarch?”

Webster puts it this way: “ ol-i-garch, n. any of the rulers of an oligarchy.”

Not much help there!

Webster, again: “ol-i-garch-y, n. 1. a form of government in which the ruling power belongs to a few persons. “

Okey-dokey, now take the good old USA with its “of the people, by the people and for the people” type of government - - - - ?

Hmmmmmm - - -? :

* Ruler # 1 is Soetoro-Obama, CIC of Obamadrones;
* Ruler # 2 is Reid, gatekeeper of the US Senate;
* Ruler # 3 is Roberts, rubber stamp Judge for Rulers # 1 and 2; and
* Ruler # 4 is Boehner, loyal House doormat to Rulers # 1, 2 and 3.

Hmmmmm- - - - ? I guess it all depends on what one’s definition of the word “few” is - - - - .

FORWARD !

[BTW, have you ever noticed that the Obamanation command “FORWARD !” ALWAYS is toward the Financial Cliff?]
