Dictatorial Much?

Let’s all just dance around the Hitler 2.0 theme.  If it has a bill, orange webbed feet, and goes “quack, quack”; it’s probably a frakkin’ duck.  At least he hasn’t started having them taken out and shot….oops, think I may have spoken out of turn about that one.

I hate using this source, but it is what it is.

Obama Repeatedly Reminds House GOP Of Their Zero Stimulus Votes

In a meeting with House Republicans at the White House Thursday, President Obama reminded the minority that the last time he reached out to them, they reacted with zero votes — twice — for his stimulus package. And then he reminded them again. And again. And again.

A GOP source familiar with the meeting said that the president was extremely sensitive — even “thin-skinned” — to the fact that the stimulus bill received no GOP votes in the House. He continually brought it up throughout the meeting.

Obama also offered payback for that goose egg. A major overhaul of the health care system, he told the Republican leadership, would be done using a legislative process known as reconciliation, meaning that the GOP won’t be able to filibuster it.

I want what I want, when I want it, and I want it now.

Congress has until October 15 to pass health care or student lending reform under the normal process. If it doesn’t, reconciliation can be used to eliminate the 60-vote requirement.

Democratic aides said that Obama made clear to the GOP leadership that he would continue to work in a bipartisan way, but that they didn’t have veto power over health care policy. GOP aides, however, said that Obama was pretty clear that reconciliation would be used. “From what was told me, it sounded more like he would almost definitely use reconciliation for healthcare. I don’t think he hedged much,” said one.

How does one work in a bipartisan manner while holding a gun to someone else’s head?  How does that work?  This is right up there with telling the banks they had to take the TARP money and then not allowing them to pay it back.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) pushed back against the decision to use reconciliation. “As he told the President during a meeting at the White House on Thursday, Senator McConnell and his colleagues want to be part of the solution to reforming our country’s health care system and expects the majority party to include Republicans in that process. Sen. McConnell wants a bipartisan solution,” said McConnell spokesman Don Stewart.

“Fast-tracking a major legislative overhaul such as health care reform or a new national energy tax without the benefit of a full and transparent debate does a disservice to the American people,” said McConnell in a statement. “And it would make it absolutely clear they intend to carry out their plans on a purely partisan basis.

All of this coming right along with changes to student loans, and the collapse of the commercial real estate market.  It is actually worse than I first envisioned it.  When one puts the threads together, the tapestry becomes apparent.

  1. Diamond,

    I have been hitting the Hitler 2.0 meme since about this time last year, when nearly everyone thought I was a tin foil nut job. Suddenly it’s looking pretty obvious. I’d just love to have the same arguments now I was having with bobots last year…

    As an avid history buff, I can see the pattern repeating almost to a “T”. We are now at the same point that Germans were at in the late 1920s; economy in the toilet (thanks to the government), a popular NPD-suffering lunatic in charge, and the hand writing is clear on the wall. Now the question is before us, America: Will we simply fall into lock-step with our so-called “leaders” who want to dominate the globe at any cost in human life or suffering, or will we stand up and do what’s right (which, BTW, is exactly what we used to rail at the German citizenry for failing to have the good sense to do when Hitler was on the rise)?

    What’s it gonna be America?

    It’s going to be ugly either way, so I say let’s stand up and walk the walk! It’s time to tell the Reichstag Congress that this is our country, and if they don’t like it the way it is, they can leave!

    I am starting to think that future tea parties might better serve their purpose if they have themes.

    Since the media really played dumb, they knew what it was all about. Maybe next tea party day there could be be a protest about Universal health care in one city, another could have a protest about the GIVE project, maybe if the citizens see that there is so much more going on than the economy they will pay attention, at least some of them.

    If congress does not speak out about the tactics used or threats implied than how can they complain. They should be the first to speak , we all know they have mouths. If some members of congress do not like how they are being treated they certainly have access to the media.

    People are speaking up , I know I did the phones calls, petitions, e-mails. That did not have an impact, the tea parties seemed to but with Obama wanting to do away with Miranda that could be an attempt to silence tea party goers. Since the whole domestic terrorist issue seems to have blown up this administration is looking for other ways.

    So on that thought does anybody have any ideas what is next?

    Republican congressmen, are you going to take this humiliation sitting down? Where is your outrage? Where is your dignity? There are hundreads of you. UNITE and fight back! You still have power! Use your intelligence and intellect. You know you can remove the messiah. All you have to do is UNITE among yourselves and with we the people! Attack Obama at his weakest link – he is just a usurper that CAB BE REMOVED if only you ACT to UNITE against him and his cronies!!!! You remove him NOW and you still have a future because you will then be our heroes and get all our support. If you don’t act decisively NOW you have NO future after suffering all the humiliation – is that the way you want to go?
    Think about it!

  4. njr,

    Forget anyone that’s currently in Congress! They’re all traitors!

    Watch the idiot Dems in Congress really push to end term limits for the presidency so they can destroy our country. I read an interesting piece that asserts that Obozo’s administration behind the scenes is pushing for Single Payer Health Care. That will mean the end of employee based health care,,,forcing private health care companies to go out of business or leave the US all together….then the sad part really begins…health care rationing. The whole House is up for re-election next year….the people must be heard kick the Dems out of the House, get rid of the Botox Queen and send her back to her corner pouting….

    Amen, Grail. Our first step is to vote all the incumbants out!! There will be a gigantic tea party on July 4th. but we don’t need to wait for that.

    June 14th is Flag Day. We’re still allowed to fly Old Glory, but who knows what will be flying next year if the usurper isn’t stepped on?

    Memorial Day, May 30th. In my area the local pols usually hijack this celebration to begin their campaigns in earnest. I say let’s begin our campaign to oust them all, and continue the battle right up to election day 2010 and beyond.

    We caught their attention with the tea parties, so let’s continue those as often as possible so as to keep the people aroused and interested in what is happening. There is a new surprise every day from the “One”. We need to counter each with a surprise of our own.

    This latest gimmick, the credit card crunch, was nothing more than a publicity stunt to lull a few people into thinking he is doing something for us, while behind the curtain he is taking away another of our liberties.

    I pray that those reading this post will take heed!
    We are on our own just like those in the past. Read your history. Our congress has another agenda and I believe it is self preservation. No, I am not saying that there are not good folks in congress that would not help if they could but I believe they can not stop what is happening. It will not be long before our hands are also tied and not able to stop what is happening.
    For Heaven Sake Wake Up America!!!Do you really think our form of government is the immediate danger. Look past the smake and mirrors and see the fire.

    Sorry, should have been Smoke

    I seem to remember the whining Democrats in Congress complaining about Bush’s expanding the powers of the Executive Branch. Now these same worthless criminals are handing the man who would be king more power than Bush could have conceived (not saying much in regard to a man who can’t eat pretzels).

    I knew we were going to have to deal with his narcissism and megalomania, but this guy is Veruca Salt.

  10. Shtuey says:

    Grail, you were right the first time. It is the Reichstag. Congress no longer exists.

  11. Leaping Spark says:

    Achtung America, Heil Obama, Hitler has been reincarnated with a darker tan, but he still has the same ideas. Last week he signed the bill to begin creating his 250,000 person army of brown shirts to help take over America while our military is out of the country. He has also managed to release information about the terrorist scumbags that were interrogated that is going to put soldiers in harms way like never before. I believe this was also done by design to destroy or weaken our military. We as citizens are also open to attacks at levels that will far exceed 9/11 because he is destroying our intelligence gathering systems. We the People must rise up now and take our country back, because while we fiddle the evil Muslim Messiah Obama and his Communist sycophants grow ever stronger. What George Washington saw in his dreams will come to pass I fear. I have renewed my oath to defend the Constitution and will do so if called upon. I have no allegiance to Obama he is a traitor. Nuff said

  12. no-nonsence-nancy says:

    I think we need to have tea parties every month. Time is of an essence. I think we should have one with the theme of demanding he show his credentials and prove he is eligible for POTUS and if he tries any monkey business we have experts who can determine if his papers are authenic. This crazy nonsense has gone on much too long. Sure, he has cronies who have been protecting him and covering for him, they are relatively small in number. We are the people of this huge country. We far outnumber them. We can prevail!

  13. Donnie Roberts says:

    I agree with all that is said here just about everyone in congress are traitors and they should be treated like one and the people in this country better stand up and be ready to take action before it is to late

  14. njresident says:

    I am for any way to remove obumo. I have been saying we need more frequent tea parties and combine them with ‘show us your proof’ protests. I have written to the various sites that organized the tea parties to suggest this.
    Traitors they may be, the Republican congressmen still have the power. I strongly believe that underneath it all they still have a shred of decency, and a bit of conscience left. We must make use of anything, anything that could be of help to remove obumo. Appeal to their sense of frustration, their fear for thier own future, their guilt, their regrets, even their dignity, or hidden desire to do the right thing. Remember they still have power. We have to somehow harness that power for our own cause. We need strategies. Attack from all angles.

  15. I agree with every comment here. Congress does have an agenda, the agenda of it’s corporate masters. We are not the people we were taught in school, it is “We The PERSONS”. The corporate congress is not there to represent us, but rather the corporation it is empowered to extort money from us for. This needs to be the theme of ALL Tea Parties from now on. We all need to learn and understand this information and educate others. Kill the corporation, reinstate the government.
