"Change Takes Time." Did you catch that? That's the slogan Isaiah's given the 2012 Barack campaign. I love it. Wouldn't it be funny if Barack ran on that?
"More Shamelessness From The Obama Left - The 39% Bus Tour Dictator Solution" (Hillary Is 44):
We read it at the end of last week and we ran for cover. We thought nuclear warfare would explode on the internets. Instead there was silence.
Such is the desperation on the Obama Left that no indecency, no corruption on behalf of the golden calf is unexplored. Michael Tomasky debased himself (again) last week in service to Barack Obama. Read it and weep for the corruption that is the Obama Left:
“If Obama wants to show he’s grown a backbone, he should force Congress into recess and make appointments that Republicans have been blocking, says Michael Tomasky.”
That’s right - in order for Obama to prove he is a man he should get rid of Congress so he can make recess appointments. How low can these Obama hacks go? These are the very same “liberals” who used to protest against the “imperial presidency”. These are the “liberals” and “progressives” who attacked Hillary for insufficiently attacking the “unitary executive”. These are the very same fake “liberals” and “Progressives In Name Only” who denounced George W. Bush for his exercise of presidential power. Here’s Tomasky now, calling for a seeming dictatorship in everything but name:
“I’ve been wondering lately the same thing as a lot of liberals in Washington: when and how will the president ever grow some backbone? Sure, the post-debt-deal polls show that he came out of the mess looking somewhat less terrible than the Republicans. But he looks weak, and he’ll keep getting pushed around until he throws down on something. I’m planning an occasional series about what that something could be, and here’s idea No. 1: force the Congress into recess and make a slew of appointments.”
Tomasky asserts the president, under Article II Section 3 of the Constitution, has the power to adjourn the Congress and Obama should do so. Then under the recess appointment power granted the president in an earlier age when communications and travel made such a power a necessity, Tomasky urges Obama force feed federal appointments in order to make himself appear tough.
I think Tomasky grasps that Barack is weak and that's why his suggestions for Barack are so embarrassing.
Do you wonder if Barack can be defeated?
I do. And I really worry that the Republicans will nominate someone so loony that will be stuck with four more years of Barack. I don't think the country can survive that.
Yes, we made it through 8 years of Bully Boy Bush, but we called him out and had ethics. Now on the left there is such a reluctance to call Barack out.
And it's that cowardice that makes life even harder and more difficult.
I will be so glad when the Obamas leave the White House.
