Obama tells Congress to f*** off [Reader Post]


From Jake Tapper:

In a statement issued Friday night, President Obama took issue with some provisions in the budget bill – and in one case simply says he will not abide by it.

Basically, Obama told Congress to f*** off and not to interfere with the King’s rule. This is the same guy who couldn’t be bothered to tell Congress he was getting the country into another war.

Compare that to this promise:

Signing statements have been used by presidents of both parties, dating back to Andrew Jackson. While it is legitimate for a president to issue a signing statement to clarify his understanding of ambiguous provisions of statutes and to explain his view of how he intends to faithfully execute the law, it is a clear abuse of power to use such statements as a license to evade laws that the president does not like or as an end-run around provisions designed to foster accountability.

I will not use signing statements to nullify or undermine congressional instructions as enacted into law. The problem with this administration is that it has attached signing statements to legislation in an effort to change the meaning of the legislation, to avoid enforcing certain provisions of the legislation that the President does not like, and to raise implausible or dubious constitutional objections to the legislation.

Or this one:


There was no doubt. There was no question. Obama’s statement was absolute.

Obama ripped into Bush for using signing statements and he lied outright in doing so. In the Charlie Savage interview, Obama said:

The fact that President Bush has issued signing statements to challenge over 1100 laws – more than any president in history-

That was entirely false.

George W. Bush issued about 140 signing statements, not 1100 as Obama implies. Bill Clinton issued many more signing statements than did Bush. Thus far, Obama has issued 18 signing statements.

It was wrong for anyone to vote for Obama the first time. It would be galactically stupid to vote for him again.

You know why.

And what are the Republicans going to do about it? THAT IS THE QUESTION NO ONE WANTS TO ASK.

Why do they just sit there and take his ship? Why do they drop to their knees and service him politically??

Are you people sheep? Are you lemmings?

Why aren’t you angry about what Obama-and his Republican allies in the House-are doing to you and your posterity??? Your children and grand-children will be debt slaves.

Yes, Obama is phucking up, big-time, but aside from Donald Trump, none of the Republicans have the balls to call Obama on his bullship.

And take a look at how pathetic the Tea Parties were this week/weekend. I was at the Santa Fe TP and attendance was very disappointing. About 100 to 150.

Guess what? The Republican leadership-even some of the “tea-party” freshman have betrayed the TP and their goals by supporting Obama in the War, Budget, CRs, failure to defund Obamacare, etc.

They’re killing the Tea Party and their doing it on purpose.

Congratulations! You guys keep supporting the scummy rhinos by not taking them on.

This is why I call the republicans “republicrats.” The two have joined together so much you can’t tell them apart. They are like Siamese twins that are joined at the pocketbook.

A lot of us knew before Obama was elected that he would try to take down the USA. Why worry about disobeying laws that you want to throw out and make up your own?

MYTH VS. FACT: The Bipartisan Agreement to Cut Spending to Support Job Creation

April 13, 2011

MYTH: “The provisions eliminating President Obama’s ‘czars’ for health care, climate change and other topics are meaningless.

FACT: The agreement means these posts won’t be coming back — good news for Americans discomforted by the Obama Administration’s agenda of government takeovers and bailouts. And perhaps more importantly, the provisions establish a precedent that Congress can deny the president funding for such positions — effectively challenging their constitutionality.


The fact is, despite Obama’s whining and his signing statement, those czars are already gone.
Obama’s ‘czars’ for health care, climate change and car czar are already gone.
De-funding them was a ploy to make it look like more money was cut than really was.
The good news is that now Obama realizes that he cannot simply say, ”I need an ”X, Y or Z” czar,” and the taxpayers will cough up $150 million a year for the office.
Those days are gone.

Paul Ryan: Our Generation’s Defining Moment

This Guy makes sense. No wonder Obama does not like Him. Ryan’s message is a good one.

Fight for 2012 !! Let’s get Obama OUT!!!
I was at a Tax Day Tea Party rally. It was rainy and cold… but it didn’t stop me!

Tea Party isn’t being destroyed! I refuse to believe this… But, I do think there is an ‘element’ who does want to destroy it. MSM for one, as they constantly painting the Tea party in a bad light….. People ‘seem’ hesitant to get involved… People who want to preserve what is left of our country, Our Great Nation need to fight as hard to save it as the Left is bent on trying to destroy it…

I invited a neighbor to a TP meeting (who’s never been) and his wife told him ‘not to get arrested’ … This is the “painted picture” the Tea Party needs to change….

God bless you, faith. But yes, yesterday was a dramatically poor day for the Tea Party. People are disgusted by the treasonous Republicans who have betrayed their solemn oath to reign in government.

Thus, they stayed home in disgust.

Despite what you may think, most of us conservatives here are included within that group of people you say are disgusted by the GOP. While we don’t come out and attack them for their actions and words, we do harbor resentment for betraying the conservatives. It is just that at this point, documenting and discussing how Obama and the liberal democrats are taking this country in the wrong direction is what is needed. I would, however, caution blanket approval of whomever ends up with the GOP Presidential nomination, and that support of the TEA Party, and conservatives in general, is as important to changing the culture in DC as is opening eyes to the destructiveness of the democrats.

I have been to many Tea Party protests in Washington DC and other places.  The propaganda media know we are not what they are telling the public.  They have an agenda and are doing a fine job spreading their propaganda.

I am in the process of moving to the northwest part of the country and won´t be able to attend as many protests as I have been.  I am visiting family along the way and am in Winnipeg Canada now visiting my son.

A long time ago I wrote to the Tea Party Patriots organization and suggested that they sue the media for slander or something else for the lies they are spreading about us. If we still have a just legal system, it seems to me they could win.  All they would have to do is use their own words and videos against them.

Throw his ass out of Congress, you have already opened the door for thousands of Muslims including the Brotherhood to attack innocent American’s……..good job Congress!.
