Obama and our Congressional Democrats have leapt beyond smoke and mirrors, they have run past the zone of Orwell, and they have now moved into the previously uncharted territory of governing by . . . Clown Magic. It is when they spend us into oblivion and, at the same time, claim the mantle of fiscal responsibility.
- Defining Clown Magic
Who is responsible for spending and taxaation? Its not hard to find. According to Article I of the Constitution, its Congress.
Who is responsible for approving or vetoing spending? That's not hard to find either. Accroding to Article I, sec. 7 and Article II of the Constitution, its the President.
So where in the Constitution do we find a "blue ribbon panel" that is responsible for doing the job of the Congress and the President?
Nowhere, which ought to tell you that creating this "blue ribbon" panel to tell Congress how to spend and tax - or cut spending and cut taxes (Ha) - is pure Clown Magic to allow our Clown In Chief and his Clown minions in Congress to disclaim any responsiblity for their profligate spending, a deficit traveling into the stratosphere at ludicrous speed, and what will soon be a call for draconian taxes on every American.
The key to defeating Clown Magic is simple - don't play along with the trick and continuously point out the how the trick is being done. Repeat it ad infinitum before every microphone you can find. Think our Republicans are up to it? We will see with the upcoming meeting with Obama on health care scheduled for 25 Feb. If the Republicans show up for that instead of doing as I suggested here, they are, at a minimum, clown enablers.
