What is good for the Presidential Goose is too Obtuse for the Gander

Posted by CotoBlogzz 02-24-2011

During the first two years of the Obama Administration, the US Congress and the President passed major legislation concocted in smoke-filled backrooms using tactics such as the Lousiana Purchase, The Sale of Stupak’s Soul, the Cornhuskers Kickback and so on.  Such legislation includes the recently deemed unconstitutional ObamaCare.  The usual response to critics of such approach to governance usually was “Get over it, I won, that’s what elections are for”.

Now that the majority in the US House of Representatives want to responsibly deal with the national debt and derail ObamaCare, the opposition wants cooperation.

Worse – When Governor Walker in Wisconsin decided he was going to tackle the state’s fiscal irresponsibility head on, the President not only argue that it was an attack against public unions, the same ones President Reagan characterizes as an anachronism in the 21st century, Mr. Obama in essence endorsed the Lame Drain – the minority legislators fleeing the state to avoid quorum- what happened to the argument that “that is what elections are for”

Then there is the government’s indefensible act against DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) on the grounds that it may be unconstitutional,  while it actively defends the unconstitutionality of ObamaCare.

Or the Middle East Policy Psychosis – denouncing a US ally, while simply watching along with other world leaders as Libya burns for some nine days, without saying and or doing anything other than to wallow in the never never nebulosities of open ended possibilities.

What takes the cake is the "Let's Get Bloody"  message to union,  in Boston by Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) in the aftermath of the Arizona Massacre where the president denounced the vitriol blaming the enemy in a speech that sounded more like the launching of a 2012 presidential bid, rather than trying to comfort  nation. You may recall that a psychotic Arizona Sheriff blamed the Tea Party for the massacre while failing to take any responsibility for total lack of security.  In the aforementioned message, Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) fired up a group of union members in Boston wi urging them to work down in the trenches to fend off limits to workers' rights like those proposed in Wisconsin. "I'm proud to be here with people who understand that it's more than just sending an email to get you going," Capuano said, according to the Statehouse News. "Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary."

While Capuano issued a brief apology: "I strongly believe in standing up for worker rights and my passion for preserving those rights may have gotten the best of me yesterday in an unscripted speech. I wish I had used different language to express my passion and I regret my choice of words." the silence from the White House and other Democrats and the psychotic Sheriff, has been deafening
The only plausible conclusion is that what is good for the presidential goose is too obtuse for the gander.  That is, an excellent impersonation of  Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi, where the minority rules.
