The Republicans have been slogging it out on the debt-ceiling negotiations for awhile now. Not inclined to actually be President, as opposed to playing one on TV, Obama dispatched Biden. Meanwhile, he golfed, partied, and fundraised. (Don't forget that Obama appointed a commission to work on this and summarily rejected their proposal and has never submitted one of his own.)
Now that the time is fast approaching for something to actually be done, the Adolescent-in-Chief has returned to DC and is absolutely appalled by the fact that the Republicans are not scurrying to do his bidding.
In Obamaland, this was never supposed to happen. Obama would give a speech, everyone would see the brilliance of his proposal, congress would rush to pass whatever, and then he would sign it. Obama thought he could be President of the United States, Leader of the Free World without ever breaking a sweat. Never having really worked a day in his life - other than at his own self-promotion - he wasn't about to start now.
As it always does, reality has now intruded on the fantasies of Obama, and he ain't liking it. He attended one recent meeting for only 2 hours before storming out. He was the first to threat Social Security recipients unless he got his way. If no deal is made and Social Security payments are cut off, you can bet your very last dollar that the lapdogs in the MSM will dutifully report it as the fault of Republicans.
In his latest effort to get support, Obama has announced that 80% of the American public support increased taxes. "The American people are sold" he says. "It's
going to be in the interests of everybody who wants to serve in this
town to make sure they are on the right side of that impression."
Well if that's the case, "everybody who wants to serve in this town"
might want to check out the latest Rasmussen polling, which indicates
that only 34% think a tax hike should be included in any debt-ceiling
deal, while 55% do not. 34% is a long, long, long way from 80%.
One, he's unhappy that he even has to attend these talks. Two, he's not getting his way and storming out of meetings. Three, he's issuing threats. Four, he's flat out lying. The mask is falling off No-Drama Obama, and what's underneath is a petulant, spoiled brat who will say and do anything, step on anyone or anything, just to get his own way.
Too bad the Constitution only has a chronological age and not an emotional one.
