This week, as we prepare for the beginning of the 113th Congress, we face a looming showdown over increasing the federal government’s debt ceiling. It seems like only yesterday that our courageous Dear Reader, Barack “I Won’t Play That Game” Obama was battling with his mean-spirited opposition over their unwillingness to send more cash from productive citizens to him to spend on his many worthy projects. Oh wait, it was just yesterday.
Well, actually it was last week, during that whole “fiscal cliff” thing, a complete victory for the One. Will Sen. McConnell have the spine to get anything meaningful on spending decreases in the next round, or will he wave the white flag again? As usual, David Gregory, who interviewed Sen. McConnell today on “Meet the Press,” did an excellent job of presenting the White House perspective. I was very distracted, though, wondering “where is the perp walk for Mr. Gregory?”
Barack probably had a lot of time to fantasize about how he will vanquish McConnell, Boehner and friends again, and continue his ideologically-driven plans to “remake” America into his Euro-socialist vision driven by “fairness,” during his recent Hawaiian vacation, the latest in a long series of ridiculously extravagant holidays for our first affirmative-action assisted First Couple. Just how much have we spent on these presidential vacations? Are the President’s supporters correct that it’s horribly unfair to criticize Barack Obama for taking luxurious trips while many Americans are living hand to mouth?
Speaking of that 113th Congress, a couple of days ago, ABC’s Diane “Recycling!” Sawyer nearly wet her panties interviewing the incoming class of female senators, including another Diane, Sen. Feinstein of California. As you know, she has vowed to revive her infamous 1994 “assault weapons” ban, this time with a more muscular, even more freedom destroying version. What’s in the proposed bill? We’ll give you the depressing details.
Whoopsie File-Eric “Fast and Furious” Holder’s Department of [In]Justice must reimburse one of the state’s it decided to persecute, while allegedly enforcing civil rights laws, to the tune of $3.5 million, which is only slightly less than the reported cost of the Obama’s latest boondoggle to Hawaii.
Tune in today for the rest of the story.
