• Obama Can’t Wait For Republicans To Shut Down The Government

    Despite repeated promises from incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that there won’t be a government shutdown over Obama’s immigration amnesty, President Pen-in-Phone and his party can’t stop talking about one.

    Obama told George Stephanopoulos that as long as Congressional Republicans give him everything he wants, then there shouldn’t be a problem.

    “One of the habits that we have seen in Congress, over the last four years since the House Republicans took over, is that everything becomes hostage to one disagreement,” Obama said Sunday on ABC’s Meet The Press. “So a couple of years ago it was ObamaCare, the Affordable Care Act, and they decided we are going to shut down the government because we disagree with one law.”

    This is insane. The so-called “hostage-taking” that Obama is whining about was institutionally enshrined in the U.S. constitution so that no one branch could do whatever it wanted over the objection of another.

    Gridlock is good.

    Even Senator Ted Cruz, who’s regarded as the architect of last year’s shutdown, said he isn’t pushing for a government shutdown and is only lobbying Mitch McConnell to refuse to confirm any of Obama’s executive nominations. Cruz says anything “other than vital national security positions,” including Obama’s new attorney general nominee, should receive funding until Obama rescinds his Amnesty.

    Even the press are onto Obama’s phony GOP-wants-to-shut-down-the-government ploy.

    Associated Press White House correspondent Julie Pace admitted that White House officials are “disappointed” by Republicans’ refusal to shut down the government in response to Obama’s executive order to grant amnesty to nearly five million illegal immigrants.

    And when Stephanopoulos pressed the president by pointing out that Republicans say they are “not going to do that this time.”

    Obama replied, “Well if they are not going to do that then we shouldn’t  have a problem.”

    What an idiot.

    To be clear, last year’s so-called government shutdown lasted 16 days and lead to the furlough of almost 800,000 federal employees.

    In other words, the government didn’t “shut down” and life went on.

    Expect to hear a lot more from Democrats and the media about a “Republican shutdown” than from, you know, Republicans.
