Oh, no. This can’t be true. Have you heard? Obama has invited John Boehner to play golf. I’ll bet they have a couple of beers in the Rose Garden afterward. Just to seal the deal right after Obama surrenders
Double bogey for Obama. On the first hole. He is a hopeless wimp. What purpose could more “make nice” possibly serve? They’re out to destroy this guy and Obama wants to play golf. When does reality set in?
The Republican plot to destroy Obama’s presidency is working perfectly. And if it means throwing half the country under the bus – well that’s the price the GOP is willing and eager to pay.
Of course, in their wildest dreams the Repubs never expected they’d get such a big assist from the president himself.
Barack, are you there?
But Obama says not raising the debt limit is not an option. What exactly does that mean? Does it mean Obama will do everything the Republicans want him to do and do so without so much as a whimper. Probably.
Come in, Barack.
Houston, we have a problem. Barack Obama is lost in space.
Now here is what a real president would say to Boehner.
The deficit crisis is a phony, concocted by the GOP to destroy Medicare and Social Security. The Ryan Plan is a disaster. It is not only a voucher plan, its is a Kill Medicare Plan and a destroy Social Security Plan. It is a monumental farce that will increase the deficit by tens of trillions of dollars (yes, tens of trillions) and it won’t resolve the deficit for more than fifty years IF AT ALL.
Republicans have leaped beyond the larval stage of ideology directly to the fossilized specimen. The GOP are now dangerous ideologues who will stop at nothing to achieve their evil agenda of even more tax cuts for the rich and the demolition of the social safety net. They will rob the middle class and strip it to penury while further enriching the rich.
And I’m not going to let it happen.
I am going to take the GOP and its phony Ryan Plan and kick it from the East Coast all the way across the country to the Pacific Ocean.
That is what a real president would say.
Unfortunately for the country, Obama couldn’t find two balls on a pool table.
