Skip to comments.Carney: Obama Recognizes "There Are Things He Can Do Without Congress And He Will Do Them" (Video)
Posted on 09/01/2011 12:44:06 PM PDT by Evil Slayer
JAY CARNEY, WH Press Secretary: "They don't give a lick about the day and time:
ED HENRY, FOX News: "Why doesn't he give a speech from the oval office tonight saying here's my plan?"
CARNEY: "He wants to speak before Congress because he recognizes that while there are things he can do without Congress, and he will do them, there are actions that need to be taken with Congress that require legislation to grow the economy and create jobs. And he wants to go to Congress, speak directly to members of Congress, and layout his proposals."

i’m sure he has.
Constitutionally speaking...he can take a dump without Congress. That's about it. And he has. All over us.
Hopefully resign is one of those things.
TRANSLATION: I am emperor for life
He could have hillary clinton stop giving billions of our tax dollars away to ever God forsaken dump on the planet and we could invest here.
End foreign aid.
Carney under the bus? But who’s going to take the job?
Good grief! Didn’t any of the presstitutes ask what those two things are?!
I just love this pri** threatening us.
He has already used his executive powers to give amnesty to illegal aliens and to force “diversity” on the federal government.
I have an increasingly bad feeling about this speech. He has hyped it up over his lengthy vacation and now given it a national stage that is even more hyped up by his failed attempt to stomp on the Republican debate. Add to that his plummeting poll numbers.
So he’s got to announce something BIG, and to do that I have no doubt he will cast the Constitution and Congress aside and unilaterally enact some giant government godzilla plan...like an Americorps on crack, where all of the nation’s unemployed become government employees overnight. Unemployment checks become paychecks with the stroke of a pen, and all of the unemployed report to government make-work centers filled with nonsense about “community” this and “green” that. The unemployment rate drops to almost nothing overnight, and Zero the Hero does victory laps until November 2012 or until all of the ratings agencies drop the U.S.A. to “pure junk” status.
Tell me I’m being paranoid, please...
What a rediculous statement Carney, if the President
addresses the American people, he IS addressing
Assuming that Congress will only listen to him if they’re all locked in the same room is probably an astute observation. I, for one, will definitely not be listening to him as long as there’s football, any other channel, a test pattern or a blank wall to stare at. I reached my ‘hopey/changey’ saturation point when he was standing in front of the styrafoam columns.
He be achin’ to dictate.
Love the keywords.
He wants to BBQ Congress in hopes one of them will shout “You Lie” again. Then he will belittle those who sit and not stand and clap after every statement. The psycho is so “me” he has even turned off his earlier worshipers and doesn’t even know it. He needs to be tried for treason. Nov 2012 is to too far away.
On the contrary, I think you're on to something. Putting all the unemployed on the government payroll would be a masterstroke.
He is going to announce the “infra-structure bank” and say that to start it we need QE3
One thing that’s obvious that he can’t do is stop his wife from going on vacation. Didn’t she just have a nose job at tax payer expense? Maybe that’s why we haven’t seen her in weeks.
I truly do not think you are that far out in left field (as in baseball, not liberal)when it comes to what bambi would like to do, or would like us to believe he could do.
That being said, bambi may forget that there are just so many straws that can be placed on a camels back.
That's exactly what he wants to do. He is out to break this country.
This communists dictator has and he will continue destroying America.
Sadly, during his speech, I will be rewatching “Plan 9 From Outer Space.”
The president cannot enact anything remotely close to this.
He has NO MONEY in which to fund it.
This works both ways. When government subverts and ignores its own laws, it gives license to the people - even those hard-working, law-abiding, tax-paying citizens. We are now free to ignore their ‘rules’ and ‘requirements’ to the extent that we do not get caught. Frankly, government is your enemy - not your friend and protector.
And Congress can impeach his stupid Azz as well!
True. But I think that (for whatever he is concocting, not just my scenario) is what the joint session of Congress is for. He’s going to toss his Big Idea to them, and if they pass it he will take credit, and if they do not he will use that to run against Congress in 2012 instead of the Republican nominee. Either way, Congress is walking into a trap.
Sure he does. But remember, We the People are NOT Camels.
We can reject the final straw that that constitutionally challenged dweeb attempts to place upon us.
That, and he likes the trappings of power...in Congress he's like a king addressing his subjects, whereas in the Oval Office there would just be the camera people, the teleprompter technician, and maybe a couple of other people.
Little gay Sh*t throwing temper tantrum. Tells real Americans to FO! Isn’t it lovely having these mutants in the WH!
And how do "We" do that? Congress has to call for his impeachment. We don't have a majority in the Senate which will make that even harder.
November 2012 elections is very, very far away. He can do a "scorched earth" scenario on us long before that.
We are running out of options short of finding something that will stick to him and even make the MSM turn against him.
“I have an increasingly bad feeling about this speech.

I wouldn’t count that out, since in the past he’s pushed for something very similar. It was to be as large and meaningful as the army, if I remember his talking points accurately enough. But what you’re forgetting is that so delusional is this president, so much does his gang believe in his oratory power, they think he can conquer nations with his words.
The usual pattern is to overcome expectations by lowering them. As such, it seems the hype means something special. But it doesn’t. It’s gonna be the same old crap. “Investment” in infrastructure, green jobs, education. A “balanced approach” of new taxes on the rich. Stern words for hoarders who are keeping capital idle. Isn’t America great; she’ll get over it. Energy of the youth. Spirit of innovation. Stimulus, stimulus, stimulus.
I could of course be wrong. Maybe we’ll get WPA II. Maybe it’ll be the United States Shovel Ready Work Forces (USSRWF). Maybe a VAT, who knows? I doubt it.
“He wants to BBQ Congress in hopes one of them will shout ‘You Lie’ again.”
I predict there never will be another address to Congress without “You Lie” and head-shaking “Not True” moments. Or, failing that, endless discussions about how there weren’t any “You Lie”/”Not True” moments. When Republicans are speaking and Democrats politely disagree with them, that is.
It is all over.
Let me grab some sackcloth so I'll be properly dressed for the takeover.
A masterstroke in the mind of a deranged, big-government liberal, not mine. Should have designated it as sarcasm. But I do think 0bummer will come up with something akin to it: a WPA on steroids.
Hey, no worries...I knew how you meant it!
In fact, the only reason he gets support at all within congress (IMO) is due to the power his title can bring to others.
Well, if prosecuting Border Agents for doing their jobs, publicly stating things would be easer if he did not have to follow the rules, flagrantly and openly violating the most basic precepts of the Constitution, back-dooring criminal illegal aliens (so to speak) with amnesty, allowing his party to approach THREE YEARS without a budget, blithely claiming "he knew nothing" regarding a monstrous plot to violate the Second Amendment Rights of American Citizens, intentionally insulting the American people to foreign leaders with "apologies" and bowing, in-debting American's Grandchildren with foreign debt that is virtually unrecoverable, intentionally not prosecuting BLACKS for federal crimes because they are BLACK, destroying MILLIONS of American jobs and illegally denying open commerce and industry against the national security interests of energy production, I am not all that confident that MSM would EVER just tell the truth about the communist magic negro St. Bammy.
There is going to be "change" required in the area of the press as well. We used to have FOX, they are not much more than a memory these days.
The current MSM is rapidly becoming a National Security threat.
>>>> So hes got to announce something BIG....Tell me Im being paranoid, please...
Maybe. They (the other side) all assume that people will just take it lying low, as most folks don’t want to run afoul with ‘law enforcement and regulatory agencies’. But somehow I doubt American citizens will permit outright un-Constitutional acts/things happenning.
Unless, the unrully civil conflict is their goal for some darker reason, then I am even more paranoid than you.....
