As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Lashes Out at “Extremists”

Well, President Obama landed in the briefing room today to talk about the possibility of a shutdown or a default, neither of which he seems to like. And the Republicans who might upend the apple cart are “extremists”:

The American people have worked too hard to recover from a bunch of crises – several of them now over the last couple of years inflicted by some of the same folks in Congress that we’re talking about now – to see extremists in Congress cause another crisis.

And their colleagues in the House caucus are “appeasers”:

The House Republicans are so concerned with appeasing the tea party that they’ve threatened a government shutdown or worse unless I gut or repeal the Affordable Care Act.

They’re engaged in “shenanigans,” pushing a “hobbyhorse.” They want to “burn the house down simply because you haven’t gotten 100 percent of your way.” The contempt is palpable.

“That’s not how our constitutional system is designed!” Obama declared, making me wonder if he’s smoking out GOP subversion of the Constitution in order to justify taking unconstitutional measures himself.

Well, IT IS how our constitutional system is designed. Congress gets to spend. But the Constitution doesn’t say Congress has to spend.

Obama claims he’s willing to be reasonable on Obamacare.

As I’ve said before, if Republicans have specific ideas on how to genuinely improve the law, rather than gut it, rather than delay it, rather than repeal it, I’m happy to work with them on that through the normal democratic processes. But that will not happen under the threat of a shutdown.

Really? Then why did you pass Obamacare without a single Republican vote through the normal democratic process. Instead of working with Republicans, Obama decided to get 100 percent of his way. When you do that on such an epic piece of legislation, you get a law that Republicans believe is set to destroy the country.

The “extremists” aren’t threatening to burn the house down. They’re trying to alert the public that the house is on fire. And that it’s going to burn down. Obama blotted them from the system, excised them from “regular order,” so now they’re going outside “regular order” to fight him. Why is he surprised?

It’s only in Washington that conservatives could be referred to as “wacko birds,” as Sen. John McCain, who used to be known as a “maverick,” recently called them.

Well, what’s wacko exactly? Running up $16 trillion in debt, or trying somehow to put a stop to it? Debt has piled up in excess of GDP. Is that rational behavior?

Obama has added a vast new entitlement when the ones we already have are trillions of dollars short of cash. Is that wacko or what??

These people in Washington, they keep promising to fix things. They keep saying they’re going to start acting responsibly. And when someone raises the alarm, the ones trying to fix things are called irresponsible.

Conservatives are trying to stage an intervention here for a dissolute government addicted to spending and creating new programs. Like all addicts, this one is kicking and screaming, lashing out, refusing to change, saying, “Your the ones with the problem, not me!”

The addict may get up and walk out of the room. And those trying to help him may or may not lose this round. But they will have at least put the addict on notice that it’s not business as usual anymore. Because without harsh measures, addicts never reform.

  1. And on top of all this nonsense, Obama will negotiate with the new president of a terrorist nation that wants to build nuclear weapons and can never be trusted.

  2. The Feds are addicted to the money morphine drip much like a crack addict is to cocaine. Take away their money drug and they start to do irrational and devious things in order to attain more of it.

  3. Bravo, Keith. Too late for an intervention with these Marxists and their appeasers in the Republican party. They’re too far gone. They’ll burn the whole place down if we don’t give them what they want. Dangerous times we live in.

  4. This constant chatter about the situation approaching the Civil War is foolish. The only people name calling are democrats. I know they are sore losers, but they are also sore winners.

  5. Extremists, terrorist, anarchist……….I don’t recall any President and his party name call like this. I was proud of the President though. I was expecting him to lie down on the stage in the Press Room and scream “I wan’t, I wan’t, I wan’t” like any good 3 year old would do in the grocery store would when he did not get his candy in the check aisle.

    Pathetic …………..

    • Even Clinton never went after the Republicans like this – and he was impeached by them! And Bush didn’t even like to mention the word “Democrat” lest he seem overly partisan, let alone call them names.

      • Keith:

        Mr. Obama was 12 minutes late for his 15 minute “chat”.

        How much of his tardiness (not a bad title for him) can be attributed to that unprecedented phone call?

        Thanks.

          • I’ve been tracking it for some time now, and while he has been on time a few times (like with the Ravens at the WH) his standard is tardy. Thus my calling him “The Late President”.

            I just wondered if that phone call was really a valid excuse today.

  6. I drove by some people in my town today with Impeach signs and a picture of you-know-who with a black toothbrush mustache. I wonder if he foams at the mouth and chomps on the rug when he’s off camera.

  7. Extremist: The thick fog of war against Conservatives

    Extremist: Amount of Foscheck needed to douse Obama’s “flame”

    Extremist: Someone who opposes Obama’s policies (see also “racist”)

    Extremust: Desperate times require desperate action.

  8. Holy moly, you’d think the way they’re carrying on about defunding or delaying parts of Obamacare that the “tea party” held a majority of the votes in Congress.
    The sky won’t fall on our heads, nor will our shaky economy collapse if the Feds shut down for a while. Most of America won’t even know it’s happening, or be affected in any way. We’ll still pay our debts, pay certain groups their guaranteed stipends, and Walmart, Kroger, et al will open on time.

    It looks like the Dems will get their funding for Obamacare after all. There won’t be any delays in forcing the general public to buy insurance most don’t need or want, thanks to the Dems.
    We’re going deeper in the hole if they raise the debt limit as the Dems desire..
    2014 is going to be very exciting, come the primary elections.

      • Louie Gohmert told Sean Hannity that Boehner hasn’t committed to the one year delay. Sadie is right. The leviathan needs a fix, and the French Republicans are loading the syringe.

  9. This man is a joke. He has the leadership abilities of a gnat. Why doesn’t he stomp his feet, suck his thumb and crawl under the table? It would have more dignity than these so-called “speeches.”

    Forty more months. Just 40 more months.

  10. Good Lord! Who writes that garbage for him? He reads it and I can hear the wind whistling right through those ears in addition to the front teeth caps. I would wager that this man has not ever had an original or creative thought. Oh, please let this next three years fly by. He is a thoroughly unlikable character. He sounds like an angry parent reprehending me. Just go away!

  11. I quite like being around extremists….they don’t talk a lot, they don’t bullshit, they know what they want and what they believe in and don’t waiver….when did extremist become unsavory? Give me an extremist for a RINO any day.

  12. “The American people have worked too hard to recover from a bunch of crises – several of them now over the last couple of years inflicted by some of the same folks in Congress that we’re talking about now – to see extremists in Congress cause another crisis.”

    I thought the Charley Foxtrot in the housing and mortgage sectors was caused by the Progs in the federal government who for years forced banks and other lenders to extend credit to people who could not afford their houses. Am I wrong?

  13. SO.SO.SO.SICK.OF.OBAMA. His face, his voice, his cheesy grin, his threats, his pronouncements, his my way or the highway attitude, his utter and total disdain for anyone who does not think like a leftist, his destruction of America.
    I could go on, but the bottom line is he has done in 5 years what the rest of the world could not do in 237 years. Bring America to her knees.

  14. Talk about a deeply, deeply flawed and evil human being. Dictator Obama needs to be committed to a mental hospital for the criminally insane and he is president!

  15. I know that what I’m about to say will in all likelihood get me much condemnation, “but what the Hell!” Liberals in the U.S. House of Representatives (namely then-Speaker of The House Nancy Pelosi [D-CA]) and in the U.S. Senate (namely U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid [D-NV]) pushed through Obamacare. It was pushed through WITHOUT ANY Public Debate and/or allowing the American People to see the Legislation until AFTER IT WAS PASSED AND SIGNED INTO LAW!!!! Now, Obamacare is coming into Full Implementation as of October 1, 2013. Now, even Presidnet Obama Far Left supporters (i.e. Unions) are coming to the realization that they’re going to “get the Shaft.” “WELCOME TO REALITY!” Even the supporters of a Single Payer System have come to realize that if Obamacare “falls flat on its face” (AND IT WILL), there is no chance that the American People will stomach another attempt to reorganize the American Health Care System will a “Single Payer System.” You Geniuses (sic) on the Political Left should’ve thought about that before you shoved Obamacare down the American People’s throat. Even you “Geniuses” (sic) now realize your mistake. I hope that all of You on the Political Left enjoy the “Crap Sandwich” (being polite in my description) that you all have made for yourselves. BON APPETIT!!!!

  16. OK. Let’s talk about some different quitters: Michelle and Barack Obama.
    Both of them quit being lawyers. Michelle quit her job at the law firm, quit her job at the city, quit her job at the hospital, and now sits around telling everyone what to eat and drink when she’s not pushing her husband’s progressive agenda.
    Barack quit his job at the law firm, quit being a community organizer, quit being a college whatever he was there, quit being a state senator and quit the US Senate.
    There’s some debate on whether he quit being the President of all of us, but that’s another topic.

  17. I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  18. I blog frequently and I genuinely appreciate your content.

    This great article has truly peaked my interest. I will take a note of your blog and keep
    checking for new details about once a week. I opted
    in for your RSS feed too.

  20. Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can
    figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to
    begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions?
    Cheers

    Exceptional Blog!

  23. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to
    be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things
    or suggestions. Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article.
    I want to read more things about it!

    A justification should be functional and credible. If it isn’t, it doesn’t matter how authentic the phony doctor’s note is.
    Pick a justification that meshes along with your established
    past. Be resourceful, bbut att the same time, don’t be outlandish.

    2. No or Inadequate Trademark
    do fke doctors note work
    The trademark can bee a primary part of medical practioners records, and it’s one of many first things people inspect.
    Never utilize a tyype using a pre-applied signature, and never putt the signature via Photoshop or possibly a similar
    tool. By law, doctrs are now necessary to sign and date any
    doctors notice bodily.

    Three. Minijmal Paper or Print Quality

    Weak paper and print-quality is a popular dead-giveaway for a
    fake doctor’s excuse. Irregular and light text is widespread whenever a printer is unclean or posseses an
    old toner cartridge. Skilled printers are impossible to allow such imperfections
    to depart the seed, thus clear and improve your printer.

    4. Effortlessly Disputed Doctor Details

    Some novelty notices possess a warning telling the audience that it is
    a novelty item. This can be demonstrably a huge
    no-no. Likewise, some replica notices have pre-printed data.

    publishing the note in Arizona.

    State good-bye for the issues and expenses of seeing a doctor.

    Most of the work is completed for you.

    Many people are in need of abandon after in some time from our program lifestyle.
    It might be sick leaves, a leave for a detailed
    friend’s marriage, a leave for a vacation, a leave from school or
    university and the list continues. These are general reasons that we have when
    planning on taking an abandon from work or school.
    Imagine if the workload bothers you too
    much?

    Following are a few of the things that you need to verify before
    posting the artificial doctor’s records for your employer or educator so that you’ll not get
    caught:

    Professional Look: The firset and foremost thing to bear in mind will be to make sure that the
    doctor’s notes arre prepared on professional printed letterheads.
    The pretend doctor notice design should include the title off
    the doctor, and his practice details like
    the complete address and phone number. Recall, the
    doctor observe that continues too be written overr a bright paper will never be recognized byy your higher authorities.
    Therefore, while trying to find great notices, be sure
    to obtain the forms that look excellent and like thee unique doctor letterheads with a proper logo.

    Correct Information: Your manager would need some
    information about the doctor’s note and he looks for
    exactly the same just inside the first look. Along withh
    the complete name of the doctor, address and contact number make sure that
    the note also carries the appropriate diagnosis. Doctor’s notes frpm health practitioners sometimes include the return time for the work
    or institution too. However, make sure not to include so uch info on
    the notice in order to avoid getting caught from the authorities.

    Attempt to keeep consitently the nnote as simple as you arre able to.

    Calll Verification Feature: Sometimes, your higher standard may possibly call the
    device range ofered while in the doctor’s ote andd hence the physicians note which you use must have
    a call verification facility. This might seem very complicated, but there
    is one website from where you could acquire medical practioners notice with call confirmation capability
    for a very tiny value.

    The episode of tension and force when you
    face an upsurge in worklad that youu undergo irritates you a good deal.
    You hzve just the option of taking leave, to get removed from this

    should accompany a great proof; else your leave won’t get accredited.

    And best of all, the notes are proven to work for any scenario.
    Rely on them for returning to work and for lacking future nights.

  25. You are so interesting! I do not suppose I’ve truly read through anything like that before.
    So great to find someone with a few unique thoughts on
    this topic. Really.. many thanks for starting this up.
