As I have said, many times, hypocrisy in the service of The Agenda and The Narrative is as natural as breathing for Liberals. The level of Doublethink and Doublespeak that comes out of a Liberal’s mouth should be breath taking, but its normal.
Barack Obama has the self-awareness of a stump.
King Executive Order himself had the balls to say “What I worry about in our politics is people getting impatient with the slowness of democracy” in reference (and warning) to the upcoming Trump administration.
That’s rich, Barry.
See, elephants never forget what you jackasses are up to. (hehe good one, Kimber.)
Let’s go over some highlights, shall we?
“I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone…. I can use that pen to sign Executive Orders… and with a phone I can rally folks from around the country.”
“Wherever I can act on my own, without congress… that’s what I’m gonna do.”
“We can’t wait.”
“I’m going to do what I’m going to do through Executive Action.”
“Wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families that’s what I’m gonna do.”
Remind me how ObamaCare was passed again? 🙂
Harry Reid eliminated the filibuster for appointments to get some of Obama’s lefty buddies confirmed. Now Democrats will have to live with it.
Speaking of that, UpChuck Schumer, the New Harry Minority Harry Reid said recently
Top Senate Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has vowed to undermine and slow down the confirmation process of eight of President-elect Donald Trump’s Cabinet nominees, the New York Democrat said Sunday.
Washington Post 11 months ago! : It may be convenient for Republicans to blame their latest bout of obstructionism on some unwritten election-year rule, but it’s also pretty bogus. Republicans were just as dedicated to Confirmationus Interruptus in 2015.
Remember the whole Scalia dying, let’s quickly appoint an SJW before Obama’s term is over?
Now, it’s not like Democrats always rubber-stamped Republican presidents’ judicial nominees (see: Robert Bork). But this level of jurisprudential sabotage is nearly unprecedented.
Republican senators have created at least four choke points in the confirmation pipeline.
Those evil “partisan” “racists”… 🙂
Washington Post : According to the Post, Schumer and Senate Democrats plans to target:
- Rex Tillerson, Trump’s nominee for secretary of state
- Sen. Jeff Sessions (Ala.), Trump’s nominee for attorney general
- Rep. Mick Mulvaney (S.C.), Trump’s nominee for the director of the Office of Management and Budget
- Betsy DeVos, Trump’s nominee for education secretary
- Rep. Tom Price (Ga.), Trump’s nominee for health and human services secretary
- Andrew Puzder, Trump’s nominee for labor secretary
- Steve Mnuchin, Trump’s nominee for treasury secretary
- Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, Trump’s nominee for the head of the Environmental Protection Agency
“Any attempt by Republicans to have a series of rushed, truncated hearings before Inauguration Day and before the Congress and public have adequate information on all of them is something Democrats will vehemently resist,” Schumer said in a statement, according to the Post.
“If Republicans think they can quickly jam through a whole slate of nominees without a fair hearing process, they’re sorely mistaken,” he went on to say, adding that Trump is “attempting to fill his rigged cabinet with nominees that would break key campaign promises and have made billions off the industries they’d be tasked with regulating.”
Oh wait, that’s the Post now. 🙂
Hypocrisy, Thy Name is Liberal (Democrat)
Gee, I thought that was the Russians… 🙂
They are capable of it. Homo Superior Liberalis is far to narcissistic.
Obama thinks he did a great job, despite Republican “Obstructionism” so it’s time to Obstruct the Republicans…
Makes perfect sense. 🙂
