WASHINGTON – Rep. Henry A.

Well, maybe Henry finally amassed enough wealth to get that badly-needed cosmetic surgery.

Question: Why did the democrat congress critters stand up and cheer when Ωbamα told them he was usurping all their power?

I think I know the answer, but I'm curious what take other FReepers may have.

Exactly what I was thinking. At the minimum, they already know that things for them are going to get worse after November.

His work is done here, the country is well on its way to destruction, now time to relax and enjoy his last few years. He can dedicate his memoirs to Lucifer.

I’m waiting for this same announcement re: Patrick Leahy. For some reason that guy grates on me more than all the rest put together, and that’s saying something. I doubt he’ll ever retire—think Ted Kennedy—but I’m still hoping. A senate w/out Leahy wd be a monumental improvement.

LOL! I doubt that there are enough cosmetic surgeons available for a task so big.

Although, they might be able to extract enough nasal hair to make a rope with which to hang him.

It would achieve their goal of overthrowing the Republic, but would isolate them from any personal blame should the coup fail in the last stages.

The Omega and Alpha, Ωbamα, would be hanged, and they'd skate.

Or so they think...

Ah, we’ll have to do without the demonstrations of idiocy by nostralitis.

Like Boxer, it isn’t a sin to be ugly on the outside, but it is a sin to be even uglier on the inside.

Of course.....Waxmen wants no part of what’s coming in the 2014 mid-term elections. All Democrats know the ticket....with Obama remaining POTUS...the Democrats will take massive historic losses come November, 2014. There is only one way the Democrat Party can stem the losses, somewhat....and they will not do it!!! that is....to march up to POTUS Obama in the White House, and demand that he resign imeediately or they will start impeachment proceddings against him!!!

Obama is the “only” POTUS in history to have not gained one single percentage point of approval after his SOTU address!!! In fact.....in both the ‘Real Clear Politics” & Rasmussen Reports, daily approval polls he has lost significant ground. It’s over for Obama....he is now, the Lamest of Lame Ducks!!! Dems your time is running out quickly for you to save yourselves politically!!! The rats, like Waxman & Moron are quickly deserting the sinking Obama ship!!!

"Question: Why did the democrat congress critters stand up and cheer when Ωbamα told them he was usurping all their power?" B/c unlike Republicans, Dems support ea other regardless. They present a united front. If Obama had stood up there and announced he was creating a Dept. of Hip Hop to promote urban music, the Dems wd have bounced up on their feet and applauded madly. It's just what they do.
