On Wednesday, February 22, 2012, President Barack Hussein Obama, with Vice President Joe Biden at his side, said, “I do hope Congress joins me instead of spending the coming months in a lot of phony political debates focusing on the next election.” [emphasis mine] Continuing his “We Can’t Wait” campaign, Obama said, “When Congress refuses to act, Joe and I are going to act.” He also said, “In the months to come, wherever we have an opportunity, we’re going to take steps on our own to keep this economy moving.”
I’m curious. Just what does Obama think politics is about? Oh, I forgot. Debate, political, phony, or otherwise, uncovers issues that Obama would rather be kept quiet. Are we to consider debates about his policies to be phony and political? Are we to just sit quietly and say nothing as he takes steps to keep the economy moving? Are we to ignore his disastrous economic decisions?
Obama has come up with a new way to characterize his bypass of Congress and his ignoring of the US Constitution: describe debate as political and phony. So any time he doesn’t get his way, he will say that Congress is having a phony political debate, his version of a hissy-fit.
But that’s just my opinion.
