I think SOMEONE is getting too big for his britches. And his name is Barack Obama. Hey, Barack: You’re the President of the United States, not the dictator of the USSA.
Not only is the One getting off to a blazing start by killing Pakistanis, dismantling a prison that houses the terrorists who killed thousands of our own people on 9/11, and expanding abortions for the poor overseas, he’s also starting his administration by intimidation and boasting of his win to the representatives that you and I elected to Congress. What happened to “post-partisanship,” Barack?
Yesterday, he told Republican representative Eric Cantor, “I won,” supposedly trying to put the matter at hand to rest once and for all. Cantor had simply dared to raise an objection to Obama’s spending orgy, and his stimulus plan that is set to reach 1 trillion dollars. Yes, Cantor made the mistake of not marching in lock-step with the new administration, and was haughtily called down for it.
Obama also warned Republican lawmakers to stop listening to Rush Limbaugh if they want to get things done. Well, at least Obama recognizes the most salient threat to his liberal agenda; Limbaugh is the last man standing among the media who is actually examining the president’s actions on their own accord. I suppose I’d revile the only one who wasn’t engaged in sycophantic drooling over me, as well. (Actually, I wouldn’t. I’m not that narcissistic.) No opposition allowed during an Obama administration, apparently.
See, Barack, that’s the thing about being POTUS: You don’t always get what you want, and sometimes you have to share with and listen to others. Try not to throw any more fits. It’s smacks of childishness. And remember you chided against such things in your Inaugural? What happened to “setting aside childish things”, Barack?
You know, the indication of a good leader is someone who knows how to handle criticism. So far, you’re not anywhere close to the leader that GWB was.
The real message here? Half of the country didn’t vote for Obama and his radical agenda. Most of these people are staunch conservatives (like Limbaugh). These are the people who are standing in his way. I say, LET’S KEEP IT UP! We’re the only ones left who will keep our country from the brink of stagnant European socialism. Rush is making Obama uncomfortable. He must be doing something right.
By the way, I predict Rush’s ratings to go through the roof as a result Obama’s comment. Way to go, Obama—you’ve done something right!
More on the “sore winners” here.
Regarding BO’s executive order yesterday revoking the Mexico City Policy, Ed Morrissey had this to say:
This isn’t exactly a Profile in Courage. Actions get taken on Friday afternoons when people want the media to ignore it. By noon, the broadcast networks have their evening news well planned, and Americans as a rule go out to socialize. It’s not called the graveyard of news cycles for nothing.
It seems significant that the first such Friday afternoon news cycle of the Obama administration gets used for authorizing American tax dollars for abortions abroad. We’re spending a trillion dollars that we don’t have now for an economic stimulus that will likely make the economy worse as we pull capital out of the markets. With the federal budget deficit exploding to three times its previous size, thanks to the bailout, why should Americans pay for abortions overseas?
At least the shame Obama appears to show in signing this dreadful act can give pro-life activists a little hope. Perhaps if Obama realizes that he has to bury this in a Friday-afternoon news cycle, the Freedom of Choice Act won’t get much attention later in this Congressional session.
Gateway Pundit has more: Because 42 million global abortions are not enough…Obama will use taxpayer $$$ to pay for more
Michelle Malkin: A few questions about President Obamas first airstrike
Good question of the day, “How can you spend hundreds of millions of dollars on contraceptives—how does that stimulate the economy?”
Poor Barack. The guy can’t even handle a substantive question without getting irrated.
UPDATE: Rush Limbaugh responds to Obama. Brilliantly. Accurately.
More on this: From Just One Minute, Rush to Judgement:
Third, can Obama be foolish enough to cite Rush as Obama Enemy Number One and then try to revive the Fairness Doctrine? Dumb, de dum dum. If it is a bad idea to get in an argument with a person who buys ink by the barrel, how smart is it to get in a verbal contest with someone that sits behind a live mike three hours a day?
