yada, yada, yada....I tell you what Funk. Maybe it IS the time to run the impeachment flag re: BHO up the pole. Why don't yall try that? I am giving you good advice here. Do it. Send HIM to the back of the bus. I am sure he will know how to make his way there. Even if he is from Hawaii, surfed, smoked pot and didn't grow up in the projects. Trust me on this.
Sic him boys! Get them impeachment papers to the floor of the House asap. It will provide you Conservative folks with Jet fuel for the coming elections. It will play well amongst yalls Pentacostals, Nascar fans, the Tammy Wynette crowd, folks like Tot, and anybody else that relishes just saying NO.
I don't know if this was planned, but it is kind of fun watching Republicans try to figure out what in the President's speech to be outraged about, so they can go home and fundraise on it. He didn't give them a lot of ammunition, and now they have to invent again. Trouble is, I think their base is starting to figure out the fictions.
What remains between now and November is, how will the GOP obstruct, without appearing to obstruct, the President's very reasonable requests for Congressional action? Their fragile House majority may depend on it, because just about all the President's ideas last night poll very well with the public, on both sides.
I found it fun to try to figure out which of Mr. Obama's promises he might actually KEEP - as I do EVERY year. And of course, he'll blame the Republicans for everything that he promises but doesn't do. He'll also use his pen and his (Obama?)phone to bypass those "obstructionists" whenever possible. But will anything actually get done? I suppose the Democratic base will be relatively happy with him - which is less than 20% of the country. The rest of us get to wait until (at least) 2016 for that promised "hope and change."
I've pretty much given up on expecting Mr. Obama to actually LEAD and GOVERN.
After this year is done, he goes into lame-duck status - with or without a Republican Senate.
