Chicago in the White House

Michael Walsh characterizes President Obama’s leadership style as “the permanent insurgency”:

Do nothing, lie in wait, and then counter-attack. Never present a plan if you can possibly help it, but deal exclusively in bromides and platitudes as you stake out the moral “high ground” and get ready to ambush the other guy. Think of it as the Permanent Insurgency campaign.

Walsh goes on with the description, concluding:

So the later Boehner walks into the trap, the quicker Harry Reid trumps him, and the sooner Obama can can declare for the umpteenth time that the time for talk is over, emerge as a hero — and get the debt-ceiling debate safely past the shoals of the next election, which is all he really cares about. Because, in case you hadn’t noticed, running for office is the only thing the Punahou Kid knows how to do.

Insurgencies emanating from the top executive office in the country seem likely to be especially dirty.

There are not enough Tea Party (AKA Patriots) politicians elected as of this date. The real Patriots of this era are battling fiscal insanity and the power seats of both the Republican and Democrat parties. There is not enough political will (BACKBONE) to do the right thing. Therefore the country slips deeper into debt and the future generations suffer. As for Hussein Obama he never met a crisis he didn’t like (his own words). This fits into his Plans nicely. Witness his brother who lives in a slum in Kenya.

Thank God not enough Tea Partiers have been elected to control both houses. The Republicans would control the Senate right now were it not for the Tea Party’s excesses.
As for the man in the White House, sitting back and watching the GOP bloodletting was probably the wisest thing Obama could do. He’s already given away most of the store to the GOP.

Bella…….Obama submitted his budget to the Senate. The vote? 97-0 against. He is a gutless charlatan. Witness his senate voting record…….abstain…present…present….the man has no intellectual guts.

Bella has a fever and the only solution is more obama. Every day he looks weaker and more out of touch than ever. If he didn’t have a compliant press under his control he would have quit already.

Compliant press? Ha! What a myth. He rolled over for the GOP, and he’s still getting slammed in the media (look what playing footsie with the corporate types got you, Barack).. Deservedly for his lack of cojones for standing up for the majority of America, I may add.

YES Bella compliant press. Example: I’ll bet you remember Dan Quayle misspelled potatoE.The press told us so..right? But I will bet you don’t know that Obama thinks there are 57 states. Guess why? You are correct when you state Hussein Obama does not stand up for the majority of America. The majority of America is conservative and this snake oil salesman is a radical community organizer.

And here we go for another duel of talking points from the Left that are either irrelevant, illogical, or factually incorrect.
Going to pop some corn now…
