Skip to comments.Obama orders Boehner, McConnell, to report to him Saturday morning
Posted on 07/22/2011 4:12:37 PM PDT by pabianice
In an eye-poppingly nasty and derranged press conference, Obama ordered Boehner and McConnell to appear before His Majesty tomorrow morning (7/23) at 1100 (that's 11:00, military time). The conference was called by The One to express his displeasure with the Repubs because they refuse to accept almost $2 trillion in new spending in order for the debt ceiling to be raised "until 2013" so Obama doesn't have to deal with that issue as he runs for reelection.
Nice (some things never go out of style ;-)
Sorry - I’ve got to wash the cat.
That, cracked me up.
If they do this, report to him, I will consider that all is lost. We watch the proceedings of what goes on in Washington. We catalog all the bad decisions of judges and keep record for when bad judges run again for election. We do all this, and then read that Obama summons these two honorable men to appear before him. Should they do this, the ballgame is over. Many like me will accept the murmurings of people for years that all politicians are the same. With my very being, I hope Boehner and McConnell stiffen up and tell him until you have a serious package to offer, we won’t talk anymore. We are the people who work to provide the taxes that these people depend on to make it all work. When Obama and the Democrats don’t recognize this, they are living in a dream world. I also will be contacting boehner and McConnell to beg them to leave this guy with no plan with a need to explain what his plan was.
The grounds have to be “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
Obama is only guilty of “felony treason,felony obstruction of justice,felony disregard of the US Constitution,felony abuse of executive power,felony tolerance of a fat butt forever feasting spouse,and felony hypocrisy in claiming to be a heterosexual.
“High crimes and misdemeanors” as Bill Clinton learned when he was impeached for them,is restricted to getting “high” and lying about diddling barely legal chunky interns who eschew dry cleaners.
That’s a HEAVY DUTY prediction!
Who is this Godwin dude, and what saith his Law?
He “ordered” them to “report”...?
Where is this information coming from? If it’s true, it’s insane. Aside from the fact that Baby Barry is a twit and probably doesn’t even know what a budget is (since the Dems haven’t submitted one for 2 years now), what makes him think he can “order” our elected representatives to show up and lick his toes?
Baby Barry is delusional.
"Gee, I don't know. That's when I rearrange my sock drawer."
Boehner should tell Obama to be in HIS office at around noon on Monday.... Boehner’s office.
Of all the unadulterated bullsh** this takes the cake. Where does this a-hole get his authority to order Congressmen to come to the place he is temporarily occupying.
Was OBastard wearing a military uniform and packing an AK-47, and yelling, “I killed Osama and I was just gettin started!”
“Hey,Mr Obama,we got your Saturday summons RIGHT HERE!!!”
The Tea Party GOP would become the super-majority party in America ten seconds after.
Obama can’t order a Cocker Spaniel to sit much less order the Speaker of The House and the Minority Leader of the Senate to appear ANYWHERE!
What Obama gonna do if Boehner say ah, NO!
They should reply, “Sorry, it’s our tee time.”
“Whats he going to do, have them arrested?”
It was OK when the Wisconsin dems left town, wasn’t it, Barry?
Does anyone have an exact quote on this order or a link to a video of it?
I hope that Boehner makes a public statement before the press in which he says something like:
Mr. President: If you have a written budget in which you list those agencies that you wish to cut and a number representing the amount to be cut placed after the name of each agency and if this budget does the above without any mention of raising taxes, I will be happy to discuss that budget at any place you select.
If you do not have such a budget, please work on it and let me know when you have it.
You can reach me at my office when you have your budget.”
“As for Saturday, I have family obligations.”
Boehner seems to have his number, if he but has the grit to use it. Grind this dogturd into the dirt, John, and set us all free.
Hey Obama - we gotcher summons RIGHT HEEEEEEEEEEERE!
Obama is threatening the entire nation with economic collapse unless he is given the opportunity to make it *worse*.
That is TREASON, yes, in capital letters.
I understand you are attempting sarcasm; there just isn’t any room for it right now.
In January, 1642, just before the outbreak of hostilities between King Charles I and the Commons, the King resolved to arrest certain leaders of the opposition party in Parliament. He accordingly sent his herald to the House to demand the surrender of these members into his custody. The Speaker of the House in reply solemnly appealed to the ancient privileges of the House, which gave to that body jurisdiction over its own members, and which forbade their arrest without its consent. The conflict between the privileges of the House and the royal prerogative was herewith definitely initiated. The King resolved by a show of force to assert at once his authority; and, on the day following that upon which the demand sent through his herald had been refused, he went in person, accompanied by soldiers, to the House. Then, having placed his guards at the doors, he entered, went up to the Speaker, and, naming the members whom he desired to arrest, demanded, "Mr. Speaker, do you espy these persons in the House?"
You will observe that the moment was an unique one in English history. Custom, precedent, convention, obviously were inadequate to define the Speaker's duty in this most critical instance. How, then, could he most admirably express himself? ...
In fact, as the well-known report, entered in the Journal of the House, states, the Speaker at once fell on his knee before the King and said: "Your Majesty, I am the Speaker of this House, and, being such, I have neither eyes to see nor tongue to speak save as this House shall command; and I humbly beg your Majesty's pardon if this is the only answer that I can give to your Majesty." ...
The Speaker's words were at once ingenious and obvious. They were in line with the ancient custom of the realm. They were also creative of a new precedent. He had to be inventive to utter them; but once uttered, they seem almost commonplace in their plain truth. The King might be offended at the refusal; but he could not fail to note that, for the moment, he had met with a personal dignity greater than kingship, the dignity that any loyal man, great or humble, possesses whenever he speaks and acts in the service of his cause.
(See also Wikipedia article on "William Lenthall".)
He just reported he is attending the meeting.
Then he’d better stand throughout the meeting.
Especially since it’s “x takes y to the woodshed”!
Naw, he was yelling: "Say hello to my little friend!"
Obama ordered Boehner and McConnell to appear before His Majesty tomorrow morning (7/23) at 1100 (that’s 11:00, military time).
SEPARATION OF POWERS - HUSSEIN OBAMA CANNOT ORDER ANYONE FROM THE US HOUSE or US SENATE TO THE WHITE HOUSE. HE MAY ONLY MAKE WHAT IS COMMONLY CALLED A “COURTEOUS REQUEST”.
RE: Impeachment. Not sure what good this would serve. Clinton was impeached. He didn’t have to leave office and absolutely nothing changed.
I would pay good money to see that on video
Maybe that boob belt is really holding up something else.....lol.
What an appropriate analogy :)
That would work great......;>)
As for Saturday, I have family obligations.
Salt on the wound. LOL
>Who is this Godwin dude, and what saith his Law?
I hope he (Boehner) doesn't cave into the McConnell surrender plan.
Furthermore, he can't even order any ordinary citizen to do that.
We have to live with the scraps for now in that at least the Speaker hasn't totally surrendered yet to the obviously defeated Dems.
It would be so easy if the MSM would tell the truth—they can still make us think we are losing when reality tells us we have already won.
How long do you think it will take you to get the hair off of your tongue?
He can order water to flow uphill if he wants.
Not that it'll make much difference.
Thank you. I get your point. But it has been my experience that it is mostly commie-libs who run out of credible things to say when debating a subject, and quickly resort to ad hominim attacks, calling people nazis, etc. They frequently did that with GWB.
But I frankly don’t see how that relates to your prediction that Obluffer is about to go “barking mad,” as the Brits sometimes say when they refer to someone coming unravelled.
This is a no-brainer. Boehner and McConnell should test the validity of Constitutional co-equal separations of powers among the three equal branches, and do whaever their obligations require.
Perhaps meet with other members of the Republican negotiation teams and discuss future strategy?
Let's see how the Arrested-Development First Juvenile deals with that.
Is there no Executive advisor informed enough to explain to Hussein that Congress is NOT under the authority of the Executive Department?
>Folks, he’s cracking up. <
yes he is .. the stress is getting to him.
he has thrown a tantrum and congress won’t give him the lollipop he demanded.
Hold his breath till he turns blue?
re your statement about Obama’s Private Army ..
watch if you dare. But don;t have anything breakable around, and if you do, don;t say I didn’t warn you!
It would be a mistake for Boehner and/or McConnell to not show up Saturday morning.
Obama, Reid, Pelosi and other Dems, as well as the MSM, have been saying for weeks that it is the Republicans that don’t want to sacrifice anything. The GOP has been blamed for not dealing. ....Skipping the meeting Saturday would just give the Dems more fuel for the fire to burn the GOP.
That said, I’d like for Boehner to show up in his golfing clothes and announce that he has an early afternoon tee time, so can’t stay beyond 2 pm, UNLESS something of substance is put on the table.
The Executive branch is not superior to the Legislative branch, and it was another display of Obama’s arrogance to “order” the Congress leaders to present themselves at his office.
This kind of issue is why our founders designed the three branches of government to be separate.
I hope the senators sleep in. Protecting our constiutional governement would almost demand that they ignore this huge overstepping by the executive branch.
US troops will fire upon unarmed US civilians right after Hell freezes over. Another Obozo overreach.
