Note to Barack Obama: Elections have consequences....

As you are so fond of reminding us Republicans, Barry, you won and we lost: elections have consequences.

We understand that concept all too well.  Having the executive branch fall into the hands of Democrat liberal lunacy is never going to sit well with conservatives.  We should have tried harder to win that office, but we came up short. Twice.  Elections matter.

But you don't seem to understand it all that well when things don't go your way legislatively, huh Barry?  Now that you have an opportunity to nominate an uber liberal lefty pinko to the Supreme Court to fill the vacancy left by Antonin Scalia's passing, you don't get it that the Republican controlled senate is in no way compelled to confirm your radical, Constitution-hating, commie pinko candidate.

In fact, the senate is in no way obligated to even conduct a hearing on anyone you trot out, Barry.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) has clearly stated as much, much to his great credit (finally).  The reason Sen. McConnell felt the need to state this obvious course of action is that the entire nation has seen how radical President Obama has been over the last 7 years of his administration.  He has not once sat down with conservative legislators and hammered out a compromise.  Not once on any issue.  Ever.  He has clung to his radical socialist leftist ideology at every turn.  To think that he will forward a candidate that is even remotely palatable to the Republican controlled senate is laughable.

So why bother, Barry?  Just keep your commie judicial buddies inside your binder, and let the next Republican president fill the vacancy.  Because remember: elections have consequences, Barry.  You were elected, and we don't like it.  That's too bad for us.  But so were all the senators in the majority of states that gave the GOP the gavel in the senate: they won, too.  

Elections have consequences, Barry.  Jam that in your pipe and smoke it, Barry.  There's nothing you can do to jam a commie pinko SCOTUS nominee down all our throats.  

Not this time.

There's a rumor that barack going to try and induce Gov. Brian Sandoval (R-NV) to accept his nomination. I know and have met Gov Sandoval on a few occasions and I personally like him. He's a good looking, conservative politician, former federal judge. He's no Scalia, but he's a reasonable man.

In other times, and situations, the Senate Majority would have considered Sandoval, who I think to be too smart to take the bait to become barack's man. As you point out, barack has made his bed, pissed and shat in it, and the Senate won't jump in there with him no matter who he nominates for SCOTUS.

The Trump/Sanders phenomena is of barack's manufacture.

And Ben Carson is on the stump saying that barack is a pampered mulatto who has no understanding of what it means to be a negro. Carson grew up in the Detroit slums. barack grew up in a high-rise condo and went to private white schools in Honolulu. So even that legacy is being tarnished.

Well said and worth repeating.
And Harry Reid never let a budget, or any Republican legislation go before the Senate.
Why should we let Obama have a justice?

We all hold our breath and hope Mitch McConnell stands strong.

LL: Barry indeed created this whole mess, from top to bottom. Just by being Barry. As Ma Richards would have said, "Poor Barry, he jes cain't hep it: he was born with a silver pinko in his mouth." Hmmmm. That Ma Richards quip needs some work, I'll get on it.

Fredd said...

Odie: I am not at all certain how rock-ribbed Mitch McConnell is going to be about his position on this confirmation. We'll see. If he caves, that's the end of him politically, and I think he's smart enough to understand that.

Fredd said...

Ed: yes, just like LL mentioned about Obama, Harry Reid pissed and shat in his senate majority leader nest, and now none of the Dems like it when they get their asses handed to them now.

LSP said...

A lot of people said that Harry Reid had been taken over by the pod people. And then there's barack. Time. To. Go.

Fredd said...

Pastor: ol' Searchlight Harry and Battlin' Barry are the primary reason that Donald Trump (and even Bumblin' Bernie!) are as popular as they are at the moment.

It is indeed time for them to go, long past time.

I so hope your analysis and conclusion are correct, because one more libtard and it's over.

Fredd said...


I think Americans vote in a toxin to the presidency periodically, just to piss everyone off to the point that we get it right next time.

Jimmy Carter. Barack Obama.

Z said...

"Jimmy Carter. Barack Obama." Donald Trump.

Fredd said...

Z: you'd be surprised.

I am guessing you are younger than 50, or you would remember what they are saying about Trump is the same thing they said about Ronald Reagan 35 years ago. I certainly remember what the GOP establishment said about Reanaldus Magnus: "he's just a stupid actor. The guy is a dunce. He'll blow up the damn world, he's too dang stupid to be handed the nuclear football."

I remember those comments like it was yesterday. They were delivered by big names; Nelson Rockefeller, Bob Dole, you know, the GOP 800 pound gorillas. Turns out they were wrong. Dead wrong. They couldn't have been more wrong.

And the current crop of GOP establishment are dead wrong about The Donald, too.

The establishment may be wrong, but I am not.
Trump is no Reagan.
Reagan was no petulant name calling narcissist.
