The number one reason Obama doesn’t want to lose the Senate

Last week I mentioned that I’d take a Bill Clinton over a Barack Obama any day. After Clinton’s midterm losses in 1996 he abandoned the Far Left ideology — and look what he accomplished with a conservative Republican-controlled House and Senate. Obama on the other hand has tripled down on his progressive socialist ideology and agenda, and will do whatever he can to hold onto the Senate because it gives him the key to an even bigger prize.

As The Hill reports, “President Obama said Monday he needed Democrats to keep control of the Senate to ensure his Supreme Court nominees were confirmed, openly speculating to a crowd of donors that one or more of the high court’s justices could soon retire. Obama told donors that a faction within the Republican Party “thinks solely in terms of their own ideological purposes and solely in terms of, how do they hang onto power? And that’s a problem. And that’s why I need a Democratic Senate.”

You just gotta be kidding me. The king of ideological political power speech says the GOP “thinks solely in terms of their own ideological purposes?” And what does Obama do? Well, down South we have a saying about that, ” the pot calling the kettle black.” Oh wait, is that racist?

Regardless of the horrific situations in the world and here in America, it seems Obama can always find time to do two things: play golf and fundraise. Who are these useful idiots who willingly surrender their monetary resources to this empty suit?

Obama knows the key to liberal progressivism isn’t so much in the legislative process, it’s about activism in the U.S. Court system. Obama’s vision of separation of powers means using the legislative branch to strengthen the executive and judicial branches. And at any turn, just bypass the legislative branch if it does not do your bidding.

You can bet that if after the first Tuesday in November, the GOP wins a majority in the U.S. Senate, before Christmas holiday recess and the ending of the 113th Congress session, Harry Reid will reverse his unilateral altering of the filibuster rule back to the original 60-vote threshold. Talk about hanging on to power and ideological purposes — such blatant hypocrisy.

And if the GOP were to entertain returning the rule back to the simple majority as Reid did, you will hear screaming like never before. And we all know the real intent behind the change in that rule anyway — to ramrod through Obama’s lower judicial nominees — progressive socialist activist judges.

We already know Obama and his leftist acolytes are fit to be tied over the Supreme Court decision on the Hobby Lobby case. And of course they probably won’t be able to reverse that decision by way of legislative process – but that’s not going to stop them. Somehow, if they’re not able to leverage their lies into a midterm election cycle winning issue they will seek reward in the judicial system.

Just last month, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said “the consequence of that Supreme Court ruling [Hobby Lobby] is, it will allow bosses to interfere with what the President believes should be the freedom that any woman has to make her own decisions about her health care.”

Please pay attention to what Mr. “Not So” Earnest claimed, in that President Obama believes private sector bosses are interfering with a woman’s freedom to make healthcare decisions — hardly the truth! The case ruled against only four out of 20 types of birth control available. Those four are de facto abortion inducing and are therefore against the religious beliefs of certain closely-held companies — a very narrowly defined court decision.

What Obama wants in his final two years is a rubber stamp Senate for his judicial appointments that will firmly support an end run around the legislative branch — and control, complete power over the Supreme Court. Because he’s still “brooding” over the Hobby Lobby case.

It’s rather interesting to compare Barack Obama of the first two years, and the Obama of today. Obviously those first two years, he relished being in power and able to ram through whatever he wished. But unlike Bill Clinton — or even Ronald Reagan who had a Democrat House and Senate – the Obama of today is incapable of governing, and certainly incapable of leading, unless it is from behind.

Nope, it would appear that it would be a ♠pade calling a shovel black. Ooh … Is that racist?

If Obama loses the Senate then his buddies can’t stall legislation anymore. Obama will be forced to publicly veto laws instead of making snide comments about how the GOP bills won’t make it to his desk. Let him veto some bills that make sense to most Americans and then we’ll see who the true obstructionist is.

Or elect enough GOP to have a veto proof House and Senate. That would have real impact on the Obama agenda.

In order to get his Muslim take over, Obama has got to get the communist agenda take over done and the liberals in the senate right now are communists. Americans elected them

I think O doesn’t want a republican majority because impeachment could become a reality.

Perhaps, but, I think he’s needing to put in more ‘progressive’ Supreme Court Justices!!!! Saaaay! That might be a job for Hill, if she doesn’t run!!!!

Well, we can safely say that BO is also ‘KING’ of ‘PROJECTION!!!!!! It’s a ‘psychiatric term; look it up under BHO!!!!!

I also think that if the Repubs take the Senate, Obama won’t have Reid the pocket veto and he will have to do some work. Plus, he will be on the record for his passed and vetoed legislation — currently he is still voting present and that is a record for his legacy that a flip in the Senate will upset.

When, Not If, the repubs take both houses which would mean that Dirty Harry would be demoted and wouldn’t be able to protect Odumbass’s sorry ass anymore!! And just maybe the 352 bills that the house sent to the Senate would actually come out of Dirty Harry’s Bottom drawer and actually get voted on!!!!

RickZ

Once the new Congress convenes, those previously passed House bills are worthless. They have to be resubmitted and voted on all over again.

There is no bill carryover from one Congress to the next. Each Congress starts with a clean legislative sheet, so to speak.

MotherBatherick

Or Dingy Harry will see to it that some mysterious mishap occurs in his office and those 352 bills just magically disappear. But so will his mythical dreams for a Socialist Utopia..

A 5 to 4 liberal supreme court would be the end of our constitutional republic. It would consolidate the far left agenda for decades. This is one of the few times I have heard this mentioned, thank you Mr West for bringing it up. His supreme court will end us.

I am concerned that Hillary will be elected and appoint Obama to the Supreme Court, as a quid pro quo for his support in her campaign.

Didn’t Obama get disbarred?

RickZ
Guest

Not formally. President Historic First voluntarily gave up his law license to forego an investigation into his lying on the State bar exam the answer to the question of weather Barack Hussein Obama was known by any other names. Barry Soetoro replied ‘no’. (Also, Mooch voluntarily gave up her law license to forego an investigation into the corruption surrounding her U of C hospital job, the one where ‘her man, her hubby’, a state senator, channeled state funds to the hospital and for which she received an over 100% raise as a result of that state funding.)

Bettijo
Guest

Thanks, Rick. Another question: If he voluntarily gave up his law license, can he get it back? If not, can a non-lawyer become a SC Justice? Side note: wonder how he ever managed to pass he Illinois Bar in the first place?

RickZ
Guest
In answer to your first question, I would guess the answer is ‘yes’. I believe any disbarred lawyer can request reinstatement of their law license, so I do not see why Owebama could not ask for his to be reinstated. Of course, if the Illinois bar had any integrity, they’d pick up the investigation into his lying on the state bar exam that was dropped when Barry voluntarily gave up his license. As to question two, the answer is a resounding ‘yes’ as there are no Constitutional or legislative qualifications for US Supreme Court justices. As far as state and… Read more »

Thanks, Rick, you have really added to my education! Now, the rumor today is that Obama is returning to DC to announce the nomination of a new Justice (maybe Ruth is retiring? I thought she just said she was not?). I sure hope he has not gotten to her like he apparently got to Chief Justice Roberts. Anyway, do you think he can he get a liberal confirmed by the Senate?

RickZ
Guest

De nada.

Replacing the liberal Ruth Bader Ginsgurg with another liberal justice would be a wash. Now if Alito or Scalia or Thomas retires, look out! That nomination should be a no holds barred, knock down, drag ’em out fight to the death.

This so called president is doing so much harm to to our Nation, by standing on the sidelines and not giving a big rats aso about the serious situations that are happening around the World much less about the critical position our Country is up against. As long as he plays golf all around the world and now in Martha’s Vinyard on Vacation. He could care less about the hard working American Citizens. I Hope that all

Try this phrase on for size…Supreme Court Justice Eric Holder. That truly frightens me!!

Bettijo

Could he get confirmed?

Larry J Fundell
Guest

A simple majority vote of the Senate Judiciary Committee, followed by a simple majority vote of the entire Senate is all that is needed to confirm anyone for any federal judicial appointment following nomination by the president. This is why it is so important to regain a majority in the senate. Holder is so divisive that he might not gather all the Democrat senate votes, but I believe such a nomination by this president is entirely possible and I do not trust any of the Democrats in the Senate to chose a moderate pathway.

First, there were no midterms in 1996; Clinton ran for re-election in 1996 against Dole. So Mr. West must be talking about either 1994 or 1998. I’d reckon 1994, since the 1998 midterm saw no (net) change of seats in the Senate, and four seats go to the democrats in the House. So so far all we really have is a slight typo, right? Mr. West meant 1994, not 1996. But then we have to ask ourselves, what had Clinton done (at all, much less since 1996) that was worthy of praise? Mr. West encourages us to ‘look at what… Read more »
