Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah); Obama may have planned govt. shut down last year

Think about it; When was the last time a federal budget was passed?

From RCP, Senator Mike Lee gives a possible (probable, I think) scenario;

“It was either irresponsible on one hand or deliberate and malicious on the other with intention to bring about a sequence of events that would culminate inevitably in a government shutdown,” Senator Mike Lee said on the Senate floor today.

  1. ThisObama summoning people to the White House has been grating on me for quite some time. That’s just part of what grates on me, but it started when he ‘invited’ the Cambridge cop, who Obama had slimed, to the White House for the ‘beer summit’. So there’s the cop sitting there with Obama, and Obama’s Vp, and Obama’s good friend, Skippy Gates – three against one. The during the health care thing, Obama summons the Repubs to the big confab, calls Lamar Alexander a liar, and demads to know of the Repubs what part of O’s plan they like.
    And so much more.

  2. You can’t be too cynical, EB. Sen Lee is right. I wrote a few days ago that the Dems, last fall didn’t present a budget in part, because they believed they could game the GOP into taking blame for a shutdown, or, in the alternate, giving them what they wanted in a budget deal.

    Intentional or just indifferent? I can’t say, but remember, all laid off Fed employees get paid anyway, sticking us with the bills. No skin off their chins. Vacation! Obama gets to pick and choose who gets hurt with the shut down in terms of lost services/checks/etc.

    If he vetoes the military pay bill, he should be the immediate target of impeachment talk, and talk should start on it right away. We win if we charge, charge, charge, and play just a little outside the box…in their face, finger pointing, No more Mr Nice Guy.. Make the shutdown about them, Dems and Obama. Hammer, hammer, hammer. Don’t let the media make it about 5th graders who can’t go up in the Washington Monument next week. Use terms like “total abdication of responsibility”, “dishonest”, “mean”, “cowardly”, and “what Trump said”

    • Vassar- I’ve just read that even Clinton, during the 95 shutdowns, didn’t stop paying our military on time. It is absolutely Obama’s choice to delay their pay. He never had any respect for our military, but, he is now playing with fire with his decision.

      You have struck gold with your suggestion that the Republicans use “Impeachment” language. There are several articles floating out there claiming that the Liberals, mainly in the House, are talking Impeachment because of Obma’s use of our military in Libya. They had a fit because he consulted the Arab League, and the UN, but not the US Congress. They suddenly remembered the Constitution, and are screaming about his unconstitutional use of force when the country was not under any threat from Libya. There’s another lefty article telling Obama and Rice to take their “humanitarian interventionism” and shove it. They never saw any need for intervention during the Sudan and Ivory Coast massacres. The Soros/Powers Responsibility to Protect document/policy has been exposed as the fraud that it is, and by the Liberals themselves. We can easily join the Liberal chorus against Obama’s Libyan involvement, and add a few more charges to those articles of Impeachment they are now floating.

      As to the Ivory Coast, Clinton is now calling for that leader to step down, even though it is the opposition that is slaughtering the people. The UN is bombing someone in the Ivory Coast, not sure who. Funny that Code Pink is never around when you need them. Apparently they like Liberal Warmongering, just not any Republican initiatives. Oh, and I just read that Afghanistan is completely falling apart, with Karzi’s help of course.

      I say we join the Liberal cry for Obama’s impeachment.
