Hey, All You Mitches, Count the Votes

December 07, 2012 By: Juanita Jean Category: Uncategorized

Mitch McConnell is overflowing with memory problems.

“By demanding the power to raise the debt limit whenever he wants by as much as he wants, [President Obama] showed what he’s really after is assuming unprecedented power to spend taxpayer dollars without any limit,” McConnell argued on the Senate floor.

This sounds awfully sinister. But it’s a knowing misreading of the Constitution, which provides Congress and only Congress the power to spend money.

Scary Barack Obama is going to barbeque the constitution and dine on the souls of our forefathers.  To viciously fight this hideous act, Mitch McConnell is countering with foam from his mouth.

Holy crap.  Somebody hand McConnell a copy of the Constitution and Kleenex or something.

    What a piece of work. Congress authorizes the expenditure of more dollars than than Congress raises in taxes, fees, and other income. The difference is made up by borrowing. The debt ceiling is an artificial limit which Congress has learned how to use as a blackmail tool. I like the way that Dr. Krugman describes it as being very similar to an organized crime protection racket “Nice economy you’ve got here. Too bad if something should happen to it.”

  2. He’s probably thinking that addled ronnie raygun is still in office and will use this authority to launch a new iran contra iniative on the US credit card.

    Remember that addled fool and his traitorous group specificaly violated the Constitition on abrogating to the executive branch the authority to spend money in direct contradiction to the Congressional action.
    Since the Constitition specifically limits this authority to congress, as a reaction to King George waging war on the kings dime with no Parliamental oversight, violating it is treason.
    i feel sorry for poor shnucks having to serve an a ship named after an addled traitor.

  3. Is this part of the speech he made when he filibustered his own bill?
    Ditch Mitch!

  4. Bud Malone says:

    He is a poor pathetic soul, sent to the Senate by many poor pathetic souls.

  5. Mostly…. a whole box of tissues….. doesn’t matter what brand.

    His mission in life…. was to make President Barack Obama…. a one term President.

    He failed…… miserably.

    Lots and lots of tissues.

  6. Corinne Sabo says:

    I was hoping McConnell would quit and go away when Obama won a second term……

  7. It was Mitch’s friggin idea in the first place. He proposed exactly this measure to end the last debt limit showdown.

  8. McConnell doesn’t seem to understand the constitutional duties of his own job. He does, however, fully support Congress’ right to authorize spending and then refuse to pay the bills.

  9. Please, Please Please, would somebody of Means please offer “The Turtle” a lucrative position outside govt. so he can go the way of DeMinted?
    Ya’ll know the Repthugs have yet to accuse the otherside of anything unless they have done it first – repeatedly. Creativity and abstract thought not so much their strong suit, bless their tiny hearts.
