Agreed...No president should have that authority.

In other words, there will be no limit at all.

Well it is even worse than that. Obama could actually tell congress that they can’t spend any money above the limit unless he approves it. Another element of blackmail used to control congress who always folds to Obama’s will, and the insatiable need for both to spend money.

Who would have thought it?

The topic would have been worth a head shake, and a chuckle prior to Nov. 6th, but today I’m shaking my head, NOT chuckling at all.

These Leftist lunatics with power, and influence with the radical powers that occupy the seats of leadership in both the Senate, and the WH today are dangerous. Very dangerous.

Obama has already demonstrated that via his EOs. To go next level they need to do some preconditioning. They are trying to get some on our side to react. The silence is deafening.

suggested that Congress give Obama the personal power as president to lift the legal limit on the federal government's debt.

Government spending is the problem we're facing right now. How can unlimited government spending fix the problem of government spending?

I feel like I've entered Alices wonder land, where up is down and down is up.

No wonder everyone laughed at Geithner. If he thinks unlimited spending will fix unlimited spending, the man needs a good psychiatrist.

One of the greatest services here at Free Republic is that we can sound off in a limited way and it helps take the lid off the pressure a bit. I believe President Azzhole is doing exactly what you say,,picking and testing and pestering and badgering and mocking,,trying to get even stronger reactions. The media is scared to death of him so they continue to toe the same line they’ve been licking for 4 years.

O the Horrible is not done. He is just getting started!

OK, Nanzi, no need for any of you if 0bunghole has all the power. We can dissolve the House and Senate and at least not have to fund the salaries and bennies for you and all the other useless eaters in the Capitol building. Turn that into a tourist attraction run by the Smithsonian.

They're very dangerous indeed, and just from what they've already done or tried to do.

It's any ones guess what they'll try next and they've got at least four more years to do it.

“...I don’t remember the story ending very well...”

You’re right. It didn’t.

It didn’t end well because my father, his cousins, and his brothers, and a whole passel of other Americans booted up, crossed the seas, and booted ass over there to SAVE the rest of the world from this same stinking sh*t we’re watching here now.

Except...there’s no Americans riding to our rescue.

It’s up to US. Why? Because we’re here, and nobody else.

Give Obama Power to Personally Lift Debt Limit to Infinity?>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

A constitutional crisis over Xmas? Buahahahahaha.

Obama wants The Senate GOP to walk.

I hope they do.

If Obama wants dictatorial fascist power contrary to the Constitution, make him and his movement’s running dogs bleed red blood for it.

This is civil war in the making.

Boehner is all that stands between a fascist dictator and the private purse strings of our nation. Now that is a scary thought.

No, Boehner is the only thing.

Although the question is ...do we the people have the guts to exact a tax revolt?

It would take business owners to stop paying the taxes of their businesses and for their employees. Give it to the employee or escrow it, but don’t pay the government.

Naw...would never happen. We are too scared of our government ...

Pelosi is Bat S#*&@ crazy...

Step 1 - Let the fiscal cliff occur - Obama would not seriously/sincerely address the problems.

Step 2 - Warn that Obama intransigence and failure to lead will cause a recession

Step 3 - Give Obama a 3 month debt ceiling raise and warn that a budget must be agreed upon to justify any further increases in ceiling. Be prepared to stand firm... without a budget that limits government spending (bylaw) Obama will spend us into oblivion.

Every generation gets its chance to stand in the breach. Sometimes, it slips by without people even being aware of it.

We’re aware, we’re awake, and wide-eyed, watching the behemoth speeding towards us.

Wealth redistribution.

That is what this is all about.

If Obama is given this authority, social giveaways will go through the roof. 40 acres and a mule will become a home and a mercedes.

“Yeah...every generation gets its chance to stand in the breach...I think this is ours.”

I have people in my circle of friends and aquaintences who have escaped true tyrannical dictatorships. They come from Romania, Portugal, Cambodia and China. Some escaped with only their lives. The stories that they tell are chilling. But they came to America and worked their hearts out, they became citizens and prospered. And to a person, each has offered to lay down their lives, (and in some cases their kids did) to defend the last hope of mankind.

And they all ask, “Why can’t people understand what this man Obama is doing?”

I don’t want to sound like a keyboard kommando; the good Lord knows that I’m no hero, but I’ve reached that point in my life where I have pretty much got everything done that needs to be done. And I don’t know what the future is going to hold, but I don’t think that it’s going to take all that much more before I could be persuaded to go to the barricades.

It has caved in, eons ago as have the idiots who keep reelecting this psychopath. One way to get rid of her is to have a constitutional requirement that all member of Congress submit to random drug testing. My niece is a drug counselor who is absolutely certain Nancy there has a little old methamphetamine habit. She says she displays all the symptoms while speaking, and I believe it after watching a few videos of Ms. Pelosi in action.
