One of the best dogs I ever had was named Zack. Zack was a Karakachan and his job was to protect our livestock. Zack was very good at his job, keeping all manner of predators away including an occasional black bear. He was a very friendly dog until he sensed a threat; and then he would become quite ferocious until the threat was eliminated. He knew his boundaries, and was happy to keep within those limits. Although Zack was a great dog, he didn’t do tricks. If I wanted him to lie down and roll over, I would have to physically wrestle him down and roll him over. When you consider the fact that Zack weighed about a hundred and twenty-five pounds; you can imagine that it would be quite a task.
It is much easier however, to get House Speaker John Boehner to lie down and roll over. In fact, as is evidenced by his recent performance on DHS funding, President Obama seems to have him trained to obey on command. Oh, I know he always goes through the motions by pretending to have a spine, but in short order he always does as he is told.
In fact, the President seems to have a pair of trained lap dogs, one in the House and the other in the Senate; Mitch McConnell is just as well trained as John Boehner. On pretty much every single issue at the first indication the President is going to stand his ground, Boehner and McConnell almost immediately cave. I call them the Congressional Cave Men.
Just as I expected as soon as Obama figured out the GOP leadership would wet their pants at the mention of the dreaded ‘Government Shutdown’ it became his go-to tactic for everything that didn’t go his way, effectively taking away the power of the purse from Congress. We only thought his first term in office was bad because of Obamacare, now we are finding out he was just getting started. Here is a partial list of the things we can look forward to before he leaves office:
ObamaNet – The President’s plan to take over Al Gore’s most famous invention because Healthcare.gov worked so well
ObamaLaw – The President’s plan to federalize your local police departments and Sheriff’s Offices because we know how well other federal programs work
ObamaSchool – The President’s plan to make college free for millions of illegal aliens
Obamagration – The President’s plan to provide colleges with millions of non-tuition paying illegal aliens
ObamaVotes – The President’s plan to supply Democrats with votes from millions of college educated illegal aliens
ObamaShare – The President’s plan to share our children’s wealth with millions of non-taxpaying college educated illegal alien voters through tax returns
ObamaJobs – The jobs millions of wealthy college educated illegal alien voters will get instead of American workers because of Obamacare
ObamaBomb – Like ObamaPhones except its nuclear bombs and they’re for Iran
ObamaTax – The President’s plan to raise taxes with his pen and his phone
ObamaBullets – The one’s you won’t have for your AR-15
ObamaWar – The President’s plan to make ISIS a manageable problem using unbelievably small airstrikes
