Skip to comments.Buoyed by Iran, Obama Faces Down Remaining Menace: Tea Party
Posted on 12/02/2013 5:06:55 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Riding his dramatic Iranian breakthrough, President Obama aims to re-ignite his faltering presidency with a Christmas miracle. Interrupting the White House press briefing, Mr. Obama brashly challenged right wing nullification, calling for a no-holds-barred summit to resolve the most serious and enduring threat to American prosperity: Tea Party Republicans.
Mindful of past appeasement, Mr. Obama was resolute, like a war-president in the fight of his life:
"The Tea Party may not yet boast nuclear centrifuges. But are its endlessly spinning subterfuges any less perilous, any less needy for exposure? My pledge against a nuclear Iran goes double for any insurgent group mounting a jihad against a functioning American government, our integrity and future. The last two years prove domestic combatants dont need nukes to terrorize. I have no choice but use any means at my disposal to insure our security. So, I say: either we talk now or we talk later. Nothing, even drones, is off the table."
Discarding the gentlemans code that sabotaged his first term, the president shockingly compared Tea Party and Iranian duplicity:
"At the end of the day, tell me the great difference between calculated deception by Iran, with limited power or intention to do us injury, vs. the calculated deception by homemade upstarts with enormous leverage to do permanent damage? I cant help but recall the best line that ever popped out of John Kerrys mouth, his 04 campaign aside, This is the crookedest, lyingest bunch I have ever seen. Would that notorious Nobel Peace Prize be worth much if I damped down foreign wars but let an internal war against America rage on?"
Referencing unending GOP sabotage of his presidency, Mr. Obama was unstoppable:
"Time to admit weve been slugged by an undeclared House impeachment. Worse still, I was convicted and sent to the tower without getting a defense. And that, dont we know, offends Constitutional protections. Look, if we can start to corral Irans nukes, why not Tea Party gridlock that hurts everyone? Maybe wild and crazy worked for the 12 GOP primary but fake umbrage is not governance. If the right wants politics as trench warfare, lets force the issue and show what majority rule means. Our future, if not that of civilization, depends on the outcome."
The Outrage of Murdoch Minor
In a flash, FOX News Murdoch Minor leapt his feet, outraged any foreign-born president dare call glorious patriots outsiders or equate them with terrorist Iranian madmen. Patiently, Mr. Obama said House radicals werent outsiders in the space alien sense, but what kind of inhumane leader kicks his neighbor when theyre down? That corrodes national unity, just like Romneys dismissal of the 47%. Except now its closer to 67%. GOP obsession with cutting taxes and Food Stamps, or demonizing basic support services, makes GOP officials come across as outsiders looking in. I am hardly alone in judging anti-government nullifiers as the greatest threat to the American way of life.
Stunned into silence captures the impact on hardened journalists. One staunch liberal had to be helped back onto his chair, slack-jawed. Another broke the silence, but, Mr. President, why now? Isnt gridlock unfixable? If we can make peace with fearsome Iran, he asked, why not with fearsome Republicans? Just like corporations, my friend, they are people too, and some still have souls. If we can break bread with far-off, angry religious ideologues, why not hometown, angry political ideologues? I admit to an epiphany: what do we have to lose? Can this national stalemate get staler?
The president then conceded he was first shaken, then inspired by Pope Francis outspoken indictment against the new tyranny of unfettered capitalism.
"Not only Catholics should work to change this stark reality. What president wants to leave office aware he oversaw what Francis called an economy of exclusion? Nothing like having leaders around immune from impeachment or re-election backlash. Like the Dalai Lama, this pontiff is a spiritual voice of good will without self-serving motives. Do nothing, and the future indicts us for ignoring crony capitalism and hard prices we all pay, in mortality and lost opportunities. In sum, I concluded I have three years to go and nothing to lose. A new era, maybe a new legacy, is at hand and I now embrace it."
Then, the president turned, deflected questions, and bounded away, chuckling, according to unconfirmed reports.
Palin Slams Pope, Again
In an oddly related story linking the Pope with the Tea Party, Sarah Palin has apparently reneged on her apology after belittling the Pope for sounding kind of liberal. An unnamed party source confirmed receiving a slurred, midnight call from the failed V.P. nominee. She was irate, complaining she was bamboozled into backing off:
"Boy, was I right or what? This supposed good shepherd of the sect, which I should point out right now my forebears rejected, is no liberal but a downright, radical commie belching Marxism. You betcha.
I couldnt believe the Pope defends lazy poor people while putting down our top business geniuses, who deserve all the billions theyve earned. Why, his idolatry of money line sounds sacrilegious to this entrepreneur. Need I remind this left wing agitator who sends more cash idolatry to Rome than anyone else? Right, rich American Catholics. Arent all those millions, like from Joe Kennedy, now dirty money, the offspring of unfettered tyranny? How then can the holy Roman church get off not being complicit in such tyranny?"
It wouldnt surprise me, she rattled on, if this pontiff came out for global health care, or other giveaways to goof-offs. Silly me, I thought sloth one of the Seven Deadly Sins? Right, lets treat losers just like layabout, jobless monks loafing in monasteries. Hey, Mr. Pope, why not auction off priceless, museum trinkets, bribes from potentates trying to buy their way to heaven? No evangelical minister on my Christmas card list wouldnt gag when the pontiff serves up widespread corruption and self-serving tax evasion. Thus guy kills me, punting to what God made impossible, Money must serve, not rule. Say what? If God didnt want rich people, why did He motivate capitalists to accumulate vast treasures?
The Vatican made no official response but an unnamed senior cleric commented such holy rollers are precisely the wicked defenders of corrupt capitalism that fit the Holy Fathers caution. Who better than this Palin creature exemplifies Francis words, how the thirst for power and possessions knows no limits? Francis nailed these errant Christians locked up in small things and obsessed with issues such as gay marriage and abortion? Call me next week when the Holy Father comes out against usury, just like the old days.
Nod to satirists Mark Twain, Andy Borowitz, and Jim Hightower.
The fact that he and Jarrett think them is scary enough!
That POS fraud can RESIGN.
What the left cannot fathum is that the “Tea Party” is not an organization, it is not a PAC, not a corporation, there is no snake of which the head can be removed. The Tea Party is dynamic, fluid, and robust. The Tea Party is “We the people”, a concept foreign to the left. The Tea Party can be attacked and its opponents can attempt to discredit it, the RINO’s can attempt to ignore it, but it is here to stay because the Tea Party is America, home of the free and the brave, it is we the people.
“Riding his dramatic Iranian breakthrough, “
What breakthrough was that? Caving in to Iran’s demands and potentially starting a nuclear arms race in the Middle East?
Obama and the Democrats simply do not understand this.
Obviously, neither does Mitch McConnell...
Yet another monkey screwing up the system.
Is he going to punish the Tea Party by giving them 4.2B? Yep, that’ll teach’em...
By 'breakthrough' I'm sure they mean 'capitulation'.
I hope Kenyan doesn’t find out that Peelosa, Reeid, Shmuer are generals in the Tea Party underground. It would be tremendous blow if he would find out and get rid of them. Shhhh!
