Skip to comments.Obama's Pelosi II Strategy (The Washington Post reveals the real second-term priority)
Posted on 03/06/2013 4:39:09 PM PST by Libloather
This is already clear on the budget, as Mr. Obama insists on a second tax increase that Republicans can't accept. We're also increasingly worried about White House sabotage on immigration reform, as it pushes the bill left on a guest-worker program and enforcement. Mr. Obama is doing exactly what you'd expect if he doesn't want a deal and plans to use the issue to drive minority turnout in 2014.
It's important to understand how extraordinary this is. Presidents typically try to secure major bipartisan deals in their fifth or sixth years, before their political capital ebbs. That's what Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan did, and George W. Bush tried on Social Security. Mr. Obama seems to think he can use the next two years mainly to set up a Pelosi House that would let him finish his last two years with a liberal bang.
The next time you hear Mr. Obama, House Democrats or one of their media acolytes talk about GOP "obstructionism," refer them to the Washington Post article that shows what they really intend for the current Congress. Bipartisan failure is their strategy.

This is the sign of a great leader: get subordinate leaders in place who are dumber than you are. /s
I noticed your /s but I still gotta disagree.
Pelosi is a Mensa superstar compared to nobama.
Obama is America’s Mussolini,Stalin, Mao, Peron, Hitler, Franco, Castro, Kim Il Sung, Marcos, Mugabe, Tojo.
Fill in the blanks, they are a universal pox on humanity and they come to power through various means, some legal, some quite beyond the law. But, once in power they never relinquish the reins voluntarily and they will use every bit of their power to advance their cause. We have never had such a leader. We have one now. What will we do?
I'm just guessin', here but . . . . . . Kenya!??
(off-topic) I'm more concerned about something zero is doing under the radar. First, he got Congress to approve the military being able to patrol or be deployed within the continental U.S. Then, after Congress bought that one, he got permission for them to be able to arrest American citizens on American soil.
He has just asked Congress for permission for the military to kill American citizens on American soil! In conjunction with all the ammo he is buying, he is clearly planning something. There is some speculation that he is trying to monopolize the ammo markets to keep the ammo out of our hands.
Something sinister is up and we will have to wait for the next shoe to drop in this little charade.
Translation: The same election-fraud machine that gave Ubama his second term is set to wipe out every Republican in Congress.
Eric Holder's people don't care about illegal immigration reform. If anything, they don't want them to be legalized.
And yet the RINOs pretend like there is no election fraud.
...[Zero] insists on a second tax increase that Republicans can't accept... sabotage on immigration reform... exactly what you'd expect if he doesn't want a deal and plans to use the issue to drive minority turnout in 2014... Presidents typically try to secure major bipartisan deals in their fifth or sixth years... [Zero] seems to think he can use the next two years mainly to set up a [Pelousy] House that would let him finish his last two years with a liberal bang. The next time you hear [Zero], House Democrats or one of their media acolytes talk about GOP "obstructionism," refer them to the Washington Post article that shows what they really intend...Zero's plan is to blunder us into a global war, something he's systematically failed to do (despite his best efforts) throughout his first term.
I don’t think Obozo will be happy unless he can initiate a shooting war btwn Whites and Blacks before the end of his 2nd term.
