Carney: Obama Recognizes "There Are Things He Can Do Without Congress And He Will Do Them" (Video)
Real Clear Politics ^ | 9/1/11

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."

Constitutionally speaking...he can take a dump without Congress. That's about it. And he has. All over us.

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...

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 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.

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.

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.

He never had the money to fund his expenses in the past. He is on a borrow today and leave the paybacks to the next generation. Why should he stop now. He is soooooooooooo getting us in debt that one more IOU will just cement his “Final Solution” to the destruction of this country.

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.

Obama wants to speak before a joint session of Congress because the trained seals on the Democrat side will cheer like crazy at every one of his applause lines.

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.

It would make arguments for smaller government and spending cuts that much more of an uphill battle. The demagoguery would be of epic proportions.

Problem for him is also there are things he can do but it would involve becoming adversarial with Congress and using executive orders that usurp some of their power. If it comes down to ceding some of their power to help Obama, influential leftists like Pelosi and Reid will look after themselves first. Obama loses.

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 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.

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.

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.....
