Today we saw President Obama full of holy passion. He is engaged in a fight to get a good deal in the talks with Speaker Boehner…after being slighted all day by the Republican. He was angry! And, with good reason. He had offered Speaker Boehner a deal that would get him in deep trouble with those who chose him to be their leader. He showed how serious he is with only 11 days before we default on our debt. Personally, I think the President should take Bill Clinton’s advice and use his executive power to declare a national crisis, a financial one, and invoke the 14th Amendment which charges him with the duty to protect the “full faith and credit of The United States.”
The next negotiating session is tomorrow at 11:00am. When you go to bed tonight, say a prayer for the President and the Nation.
AT 2:45PM THE ADMINISTRATION MAY CERTIFY THE REPEAL OF “DON’T ASK, DON’T TELL” MAKING IT LAW IN 60 DAYS
Extremist Political Neophytes Take Risk of Kubrick-like Armageddon!
In business you come out of high school or college, and, perhaps, take an entry-level position. You work hard and advance upward in the pecking order. Along with advancement comes more money and power. The kid in the mailroom does not sit on the board of directors without a lot of smarts… and TIME! Now, no insult to you Tea Party freshmen in the Congress, but, the American people think that your deciding to hold the Debt Ceiling increase contingent on NOT RAISING TAXES on the rich to be misguided. As freshmen, it might be a good idea to go slow, make strategic friendships and LATER advance your agenda. Instead, you are holding up the legislative process and risk a downgrade to the credit-worthiness of The United States. That is some serious business! As freshmen, have you not learned the global financial system is based on the American dollar? Do you not know that China would like to supplant our top dog role in global finance? The American people want you to work with your leaders and quickly come to a resolution on the National Debt, the Debt Ceiling, increased revenue and reform of entitlements. This all in aid of reducing our debt and continuing our Triple AAA bond rating which keep this train chugging along. Yours is the power. Use it well!
