Will Congress Pull The Legs Out From Under President Obama?

Published by at 9:58 am under All General Discussions

The debate in Congress over what to do about Syria is going to be interesting. If the parties stick to their core beliefs, Obama would lose as Democrats bailed on him given their anti-war obsessions. The GOP would be pushing the issue of maintaining the wrath of God on Earth over heinous crimes against humanity, but enough of them would also bail.

But party platforms and core beliefs become jello-like when it comes to questions of political power. So don’t hold your breathe on traditional roles from the parties in DC.

Now we have Obame, Biden, Pelosi and John Kerry rattling the swords of war – a twilight zone moment to be sure. And the GOP is probably struggling on whether one crime against humanity deserves another. Trust me, I am not going soft on national security – just pointing out the obvious political calculations. The GOP must be salivating over the opportunity to paint the Democrats as heartless war-mongers and themselves as patrons of peace.

The wild card is who is going to buckle on their beliefs more? There are plenty of anti-war democrats who are so serious about this issue they will not support their party leadership.  One wonders how a vote on war can follow within weeks of the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther Kings march on Washington DC and not rip at the core of the Democrats. So everyone is looking to the GOP to be the ones that have to pull Obama over the top.

Not to mention John Kerry’s Sunday road show of political TV did not go well for the administration. I doubt America is behind this no matter what Congress votes.

But another wild card is the fact that our nation is flat, …busted, …broke.  A huge government lie as been running for almost 4 months now. A lie that has been propped up by the Political Industrial Complex to hide it from We The People. A lie that is coming to a head this month:

The Treasury Department’s latest official daily accounting of the U.S. government’s receipts, expenditures and borrowings–released this afternoon at 4:00 p.m.–indicates that the legally limited debt of the federal government has now been exactly $16,699,396,000,000 for 100 straight days.

The statement for Aug. 23 said the federal debt subject to the legal limit set by Congress was $16,699,396,000,000—or $25 million below the current limit of $16,699,421,000,000. Every Daily Treasury Statement since May 17 has also shown the legally limited debt at $16,699,396,000,000, or $25 million below the limit.

This of course is impossible. The nation runs a debt every month, every week and every day of the year. The deficit in July was nearly $100 Billion, dwarfing the supposed $25 million the treasury says we had on the books for that month.

It is a lie. A gross lie covered up by the news media, pundits and politicians.  DC has been spending money illegally and the crooks in DC are afraid to tell the people the true numbers.

So how is it Obama can pay for an attack on Syria? Heck, he did not have the money to send the ships he sent!

The new budget that is supposed to fund the government starting October 1 has no hope of becoming law, making Obama’s administration the first to basically run on Continuing Resolutions as Harry Ried’s Senate makes a hash out of our constitution by not passing budget for years on end. No money now, no money on October.

How can these lame-ass administrators of government find the money to attack Syria? With only France as a potential ally (an ally with no military force mind you)?

The question is will Obama’s war cries go down in a historic vote of no confidence – as we saw in the UK this week? Or will the Pols in DC start making their back-door deals for political power and once again throw honor, ethics and morals out the window?

Sadly, my bet is on the latter happening.

    Obama will get his way with congress because Harry Reid controls the Senate with an iron fist and a jelly fish controls the House: RINO John Boehner. The main stream media is an Obama cheering society so “his will be done.”

    First of all… WELCOME BACK AJ STRATA. I haven’t been here in a couple weeks because I thought you were lwtting your little blog, which I enjoy, die a slow death. Glad to see a few recent posts.

    Now to the subject:

    1) Obama decide to go to Congress because he has no stomach to go it alone and stick his neck out on the line. This gutless wonder is probable hoping the resolution fails anf then he can blame his lack of action on Congress. If is passes then he has political cover. Either way he is a disgrace to the office he holds.

    2) This truly now is about more than a wreckless incompetent President. What message do we send to Iran and other rogue States if we fail to act now that the President has stepped in it?

    3) The Dems will split with the anti-war crowd voting against Obama. The Republicans, in an incredible ironic twist, will bail out his sorry ass and vote to give him authority. They won’t do it for Obama, but for the office of the Presidency and for the stature and credibility of the US.

    4) To appease the Republicans Obama will order significant strikes against the military infrastructure. He’ll destroy airports, refineries, supply depots, etc. Then he’ll stop and see what happens. My guess: a long and protracted civil war with Assad becoming more desperate and using more chemical weapons and nerve agents.

    5) Obama will be a complete failure, but the mainstream press will give himcredit for being tough.

    6) Pray we get a new President (who isn’t Hillary) in 3 years.

    Sorry for all the typos. Fat fingers and its past my bedtime. 🙂

    Kerry to Congress today: “Can you imagine the horror of Assad being left in power, which is exactly what our plan is?”

    But Obama will not puts boots on the ground, unless this mission fails, which it is expressly designed to do, and what are the odds of that?

    Layman, how did you get fat fingers? I hope the Repubs stand on principle and not on politics (fat chance) and deny him(Obama) the right to claim victory for al Qaeda.

    WWS:” Kerry to Congress today: “Can you imagine the horror of Assad being left in power, which is exactly what our plan is?””
    I don’t think he actually has a ‘plan’ except to ‘fool everyone’. You can bet if there is ANY credit, he will take it and if there is any blame, he will put it on Bush.
