Fernandez: “This town ain’t big enough for the few of us…” (4)

CBS says President Obama “abruptly” left the debt negotiations meeting with Congress. He said “enough’s enough” and that he had been “very patient.”

During the meeting, Speaker of the House John Boehner reportedly challenged the President to offer real spending cuts. He said the gimmicks and accounting tricks that Washington has used for decades are not applicable here, according to the GOP aide.

When White House officials allegedly attempted to justify budgetary gimmicks, the House Speaker John Boehner said pointedly and, “We’re not doing that anymore,” according to the GOP aide.

Politico has details of the stormy exchange between Eric Cantor and Barack Obama.

    The ant works hard, in the withering heat, all summer long. He builds his house and stores supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks that the ant is a fool.
    He laughs, dances and plays the summer away, preparing nothing for the coming winter. Winter comes, the ant is safe and warm. The shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and fed, while others are cold and starving!

    CBS, NBC, ABC & CNN show up to provide pictures of shivering grasshoppers, next to a video of an ant in his comfortable home, with a table filled with food. America is stunned by the sharp contrast! How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer this way? Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah, with the grasshopper. Everyone cries when they sing “It’s Not Easy Being Green”.

    Jesse Jackson stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house, where the news stations film the group singing “We Shall Overcome”. Jesse then has the group pray for the grasshopper’s sake, and reminds the group to contribute to his group, so that he can “continue the fight” for grasshoppers, everywhere! Ted Kennedy & John Kerry exclaim, in an interview with Tom Brokaw, that the ant has gotten rich, off
    the back of the poor grasshopper! Both call for an immediate tax hike, to make the ant pay “his fair share”!

    Finally, the EEOC drafts the “Economic Equity For Grasshoppers Act”, retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The ant is fined for failing to hire the proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his house is confiscated by the government.

    Hillary Clinton gets her old law firm to represent the grasshopper, in a defamation suit against the ant. The case is tried in federal court, with a jury comprised of unemployed welfare recipients. Surprise! The ant loses the case!

    The story ends, as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food, while the government house he lives in (which happens to be the ant’s old house) crumbles around him, due to lack of maintenance! The ant has disappeared in the snow. The grasshopper is found, dead, in a drug-related incident.
    The house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders, who terrorize this once-peaceful neighborhood.

    The moral of this version? Don’t vote for Democrats or liberals.

    Obama will need a billion dollars to buy his next term as President, maybe two. The only good thing in all this – the full exposure of the hypocrisy of the left and the MSM who worship this man and his incompetence. It will be rather delicious to watch the money pour in from unions and the uber left of Hollywood as they try to prop up the “god who walks among us”. lol

    The left always falls back on “tone” and “rudeness” when they are getting their butts kicked. It is nothing more than a redirection strategy that must be ignored. It is time to call Obama’s bluff. He is way, waaayyyy out of his league and the adults have to take control again.

    Obama is mixing Reagan’s standing tall against Gorby in Reykjavik (i.e. a standoff with Communism) with standing up to an elected fellow American …Cantor. Obama can’t think, he can’t see the difference.

    It’s a bit like Bush saying to the compliant (with harbouring terrorists) leaders of other countries “are you with us or against us?” … he wasn’t talking to fellow Americans who might not agree with him. Dissent within a democracy is healthy. But Obama rules, he does not see the 3 branches of government with its checks and balances as healthy, he sees it as an obstacle. Not an obstacle to his plan, because he hasn’t got one, he hasn’t even tabled a budget after 2 and 1/2 years; but an obstacle to his need to control and manipulate the public to his rule.
