• Michael Steele: Obama Basically Throwing The Bird Up To Pretty Much Everybody

    Well, that’s certainly one way to put it.

    But I would argue that Barack Obama has been giving the country his butt to kiss since January 2009.

    Obama had Democratic majorities in the House and the Senate, and he still had to shove Obamacare through with bureaucratic arm twisting and backroom deals.

    And Obama tried to pass Cap and Trade. Thank God that didn’t happen.

    However, in recent months Obama has governed as if there weren’t two equal branches of government.

    And last night on MSNBC’s Hardball, former Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele summed up how Obama will govern for the remainder of his term in office.

    “I think this is the president is basically throwing the bird up in the air to pretty much everybody in this town,” Steele said.

    After Chris Matthews asked Steele if he thought Obama “normalizing” relations with dictator-run Cuba was as offensive as a bird, Steele said absolutely.

    “I think in his own way, kind of educated, professorial way, he’s basically saying, I’m just going to do this. I’m going to set out and do what I want to do. So you start with the immigration piece, you come back with Cuba, the following week, which links into the immigration piece, ties into Gitmo and some other things,” Steele elaborated.

    “So, I think the president is just finding a space where he’s comfortable, and has figured out that this town will never work with him, it will never work for him, and therefore he’s just going to do his thing and let the chips fall where they may. And I think there’s some fallout from that and I hope he’s prepared for that. But I think he’s got this comfort now of doing what he wants to do,” Steele concluded.

    The problem here is that no president gets to “do what they want to do.” Our system of government was erected to stop such tyrannical behavior.

    Obama isn’t running for reelection again. He’s knows that. He has nothing to lose. So it’s going to be up to the oftentimes lousy Republicans in Washington to stop Obama from completely dismantling the constitution before he leaves the White House for good.
