Obama has rope-a-doped these GOP clowns hard

Obama has rope-a-doped these GOP clowns hard 


Republicans now have Obama right where Obama wants them to.

  And consider the odd situation in which that leaves the President. As much as he has been under attack from Republicans over executive authority, he has a political incentive to bait Republicans into talking more about impeachment, which would both build pressure for it within the GOP and force them to deny it to the media. The best way for him to do so is to take more unilateral action on issues like immigration. That would incense Republicans, who would then rush to the cameras to decry his lawlessness, which would lead journalists to ask them whether they’re going to impeach him, which would lead them to tie themselves in knots denying it. Obama would get both the policy results he wants and the political benefit of making his opponents look like they’re about to drag the country into a repeat of the farce of 1998.

So yes, the talk of impeachment is in part a plot by the White House. But they’re only exploiting the pressure that exists within the GOP — pressure that John Boehner and the rest of the party leadership helped create. And if you think you’ve seen Republicans squirming uncomfortably over the question up until now, just you wait.

  I'd strongly encourage you to read the whole piece by Paul Waldman quoted above. It clearly illustrates that Obama now has a clear incentive to troll the **** out of extremist Republicans who hate him more than they love America.

 
 Because Republicans decided on the day of Obama's first inauguration to oppose everything this President does. Their goal was to sabotage Obama's Presidency and America's recovery for their own political gain.


Even if that would hurt average Americans.


Especially if that would hurt average Americans and impede our nation's economic recovery. That way they can run on the outrage they themselves created.


Even if they previously supported the idea Obama was trying to pass into law.

And that worked in 2010. It also failed miserably in 2012.

Now it is 2014 and the GOP strategy seems to be "Second term, same as the first":

Oppose everything, watch NOTHING improve, hobble Obama's second term. And blame the lack of progress on, you guessed it, Obama.


But Obama is NOT going along with it.


He is using the powers available to him as Chief Executive to get **** done, with or without a recalcitrant, petty partisan driven GOP House of Representatives.


So sue me


Or impeach me


Which the GOP has (sued him)


Which countless wingnuts claim they should (impeach him)


Now, unless Sarah Palin is a Democratic plant it is laughable to say that all of this impeachment talk started with Obama's WH. Impeaching Obama is a laughable proposal outside the GOP, kind of like every other GOP idea.

But just because no one outside the GOp takes it seriously doesn't mean the GOP base won't cling to it until the bitter end (see Palin, Sarah)

For years the GOP has been saying Obama is lawless, a tyrant, a dictator, and weak, or whatever. Whatever they can get to stick to a wall. The problem is NONE OF THAT CRAP will stick to a wall outside of the sound proof echo chamber that is the GOP's incestuously amplified corporate media machine.

At the beginning of Obama's second term The Heritage Foundation advised Congressional Republicans to ditch all the governing bullshit and stick to inventing scandals. All of those nothing burger scandals have FAILED to resonate with anyone outside the GOP echo chamber. Let's take a look at some of those failed GOP noise machine trumped up "Scandals".


IRS "scandal" = FAIL

#BENGHAZI!!1!!! = FAIL

Bundy Ranch = racist outburst + FAIL

Bergdahl = FAIL, fizzled out in a week

Obamacare won't help anyone = FAIL
and on and on it goes.


The GOP has tried to avoid governing as much as they can. But that lack of desire to do government stuff ran head first into the wall that the GOP wants to build on the Mexican border.

Because the GOP's newest self-manufactured "Crisis" was along the southern border. OMG! there are immigrants and refugees coming here! Aren't you southern state white people who fear and loath immigrants angry?, asked Republicans. Why won't Obama do something said the screechweasels on the right!?!?

So Obama started saying he would "do something"

And that made the screechweasels screech even louder.

How dare Obama do things?!? He isn't the "Decider". He is a tyrant or something, and Republicans started whipping up their hardcore base with promises of impeachable offenses that Republicans are entirely incapable of articulating without using terms so vague it might appear at the bottom of a credit card agreement.

This leaves President Obama in the perfect position to keep Rope-a-Doping these GOP clowns as hard as he wants to.

GOP won't pass any immigration laws? Obama can issue some executive orders. **** will get done. Democratic constituencies will appreciate those moves, it will infuriate the GOP base further, increasing the demands for impeaching Obama over arggle barrgle something something, which will remind Dem voters to get off their asses and vote in 2014, and so on and so forth.

So Very Serious Republicans like Paul Ryan say Impeachment talk is a 'ridiculous game"

Guess what, ********, YOU BUILT THAT. Don't come whining to the rest of us when that thing Republicans built blows up in the face of Republicans.

And Obama knows it.

More below the fold

At this point Obama is the roadrunner and the GOP is Wile E. Coyote, forever doomed to be crushed by the zany ACME traps they have set themselves for Obama, and all the while Obama sticks his tongue out and goes MEEP MEEP before racing off to the music of a happy cartoon xylophone tune.

This is what happens when you tell the GOP base Obama is a lawless tyrant hell bent on destroying 'Murica. They believe you. Then they demand impeachment. Then they get super pissed at GOP leaders who can't deliver on Impeachment because those GOP leaders know it would be laughed at by the larger American public and it would only motivate Dems to vote against their looney wingnut asses.


It's like a DirecTV commercial.


Don't call Obama a tyrant.


When you call Obama a tyrant wingnuts want to impeach him


When wingnuts want to impeach Obama Dem voters get motivated to vote in off year elections.


The GOP really has two choices here, either shitcan the looney impeachment talk OR admit that Obama isn't the lawless tyrant hell bent on destroying the constitution that they've painted him as for the last 5 or 6 years.

But the GOP can't do either of those things or their rabid teabagger base would throw them out faster than you can say Eric Cantor.


Whereas Obama can now continue to rope-a-dope these schmucks to his hearts content.

Don't want to pass a real immigration reform bill that addresses a clear pathway to citizenship? I'll just get my pen and my phone. There is an Executive Order for that.


Which will make wingnuts howl for impeachment,

Which will make Dem voters realize they need to get off their asses and vote in 2014,

Which will make John Boehner cry out in agony at how the WH plotted all this.


Yes, if Obama has mind control powers that make Steve King, Sarah Palin, RW pundits and a host of elected Republicans say stupid **** than yes this is a devious WH plot.

OR, Obama is using a kind of political ju jitsu to make Republicans throw themselves off balance by using the force of their attacks against him against themselves.


Either way it is a win/win for Obama and everyone else in America who actually wants to see these problems solved instead of the shrinking minority of shrieking Republicans who'd rather build a 2,000 mile fence so they can continue screaming at Latino's from the 'Murcian side of the border.

Republicans don't want to fix these problems. They like the status quo as is. They just want to scream about these problems, blame Dems and "Big Gov" and demonize the brown people whom their base clearly has nothing but animosity and loathing for.

Here, Obama has been put in a corner, and now he is using the GOP's frenzied hatred of himself to beat the living **** out of the GOP with their own belligerent momentum against him.

But you keep on weaselscreeching about Obama's tyranny, Mr. Republican man. Please proceed.

Because if Obama is so horrible go ahead and impeach him.

And if not, do kindly shut the hell up, sit the **** down and do your ******* job.

And that job isn't whining to cable news shows about Obama. That job is governing. If you can't do that don't get pissed when Obama does it for you.

Or do get pissed. I don't give a **** anymore what Republicans think.

President Obama has the ability to beat the crap out of Republicans without barely moving. He just dodges their attacks and counter punches while they miss badly on their jabs and tire themselves out.

That's what Rope-a-Dope looks like.

And maybe I am being too kind to Obama on this. Maybe. But either Obama is the all time king of Presidential Rope-a-Dope, a tyrant of the beltway boxing arena, or the GOP is so amazingly incompetent that they have become a Sideshow Bob trapped in a field full of rakes that they have set their themselves.

It's probably a little bit of both.

Here is a belligerent GOP that has zero credibility outside of the beltway, the corporate owned media and the GOP base.

Here is 2nd most popular politician in America named Barack Obama.

And guess what, that weak fickle tyrannical despot Obama is mopping the ******* floor with the GOP.

Because Obama is the Teflon President. Nothing the GOP throws at him sticks. None of their punches land or have any strength behind them. And the only politician in America more popular than Obama is Hillary Clinton.

I'm not saying that President Obama is Muhammad Ali, but the GOP of 2014 sure as **** ain't no Sonny Liston.

So please proceed, you ridiculous screeching right wing nutjobs. It doesn't matter if we call it Rope-A-Dope, 11th dimensional chess or Jedi Mind Tricks, Obama continues to hand these Republicans their asses.

And these modern Republicans deserve to have their asses handed to them.

I leave the floor to you.

Re: Obama has rope-a-doped these GOP clowns hard 


What an utter load of crap. Obama has himself right where he doesn't want himself. At an all time low approval rating and the painful certainty of losing the Senate. All of the sudden he will find himself with no shield ie Harry Reid, who prevents every stitch of GOP legislation from getting to a vote so he can whine about the GOP not doing anything. NOW he will have to actually do his job (which will be to veto hundreds of bills) as opposed to playing golf and saying the GOP doesn't do anything. I knew exactly what would happen with Palin's talk of impeachment and Boehner's law suit, ridicule which is straight out of Saul Alinski's playbook. Obama carries Rules for Radicals like a union worker carries his union booklet. Sorry, but it won't work. He's going to lose the Senate no matter what he says or does.

Let me guess.  You aren't here for the Alcohol or Tobacco...

Tell that to the -10% approval of Congress guy...but do go on, I got my popcorn!

And your ridiculous parroting of right wing propaganda-isms, ie "Alinsky" "Rules For Radicals" is such hyperbolic b.s...only you folks in your triple insulated echo-camber of right wing paranoia only buy that tripe, while the majority of Americans are getting tired of the rabid right's derangement, hypocrisy, and delusion.

Re: Obama has rope-a-doped these GOP clowns hard 


Politically I think this isn't the wisest thing for the GOP to do. It helps the Dems raise money and gen-up their base, in an attempt to further put Obama in a bad light when he's ALREADY seen by most people as a lousy leader. IOW, not a lot of gain for the GOP, this lawsuit isn't going to stop or diminish Obama's lawlwessness. The Repubs are better off IMHO to focus on ObamaCare, the IRS, Benghazi, and all the other scandals perpetrated by the Democrats. Concentrate on the things the GOP can use against the Dems in the Senate to gain control of that chamber. Forget Obama, he's a lame duck president already. Too bad they can't sue Harry Reid, they should be talking about how they can't get anything done in the Senate cuz Reid blocks everything coming from the House.

  And consider the odd situation in which that leaves the President. As much as he has been under attack from Republicans over executive authority, he has a political incentive to bait Republicans into talking more about impeachment, which would both build pressure for it within the GOP and force them to deny it to the media. The best way for him to do so is to take more unilateral action on issues like immigration. That would incense Republicans, who would then rush to the cameras to decry his lawlessness, which would lead journalists to ask them whether they’re going to impeach him, which would lead them to tie themselves in knots denying it. Obama would get both the policy results he wants and the political benefit of making his opponents look like they’re about to drag the country into a repeat of the farce of 1998.

So yes, the talk of impeachment is in part a plot by the White House. But they’re only exploiting the pressure that exists within the GOP — pressure that John Boehner and the rest of the party leadership helped create. And if you think you’ve seen Republicans squirming uncomfortably over the question up until now, just you wait.

WashingtonPost.com

Bold text added by the diarist

  I'd strongly encourage you to read the whole piece by Paul Waldman quoted above. It clearly illustrates that Obama now has a clear incentive to troll the **** out of extremist Republicans who hate him more than they love America.

 
 Because Republicans decided on the day of Obama's first inauguration to oppose everything this President does. Their goal was to sabotage Obama's Presidency and America's recovery for their own political gain.


Even if that would hurt average Americans.


Especially if that would hurt average Americans and impede our nation's economic recovery. That way they can run on the outrage they themselves created.


Even if they previously supported the idea Obama was trying to pass into law.

And that worked in 2010. It also failed miserably in 2012.

Now it is 2014 and the GOP strategy seems to be "Second term, same as the first":

Oppose everything, watch NOTHING improve, hobble Obama's second term. And blame the lack of progress on, you guessed it, Obama.


But Obama is NOT going along with it.


He is using the powers available to him as Chief Executive to get **** done, with or without a recalcitrant, petty partisan driven GOP House of Representatives.


So sue me


Or impeach me


Which the GOP has (sued him)


Which countless wingnuts claim they should (impeach him)


Now, unless Sarah Palin is a Democratic plant it is laughable to say that all of this impeachment talk started with Obama's WH. Impeaching Obama is a laughable proposal outside the GOP, kind of like every other GOP idea.

But just because no one outside the GOp takes it seriously doesn't mean the GOP base won't cling to it until the bitter end (see Palin, Sarah)

For years the GOP has been saying Obama is lawless, a tyrant, a dictator, and weak, or whatever. Whatever they can get to stick to a wall. The problem is NONE OF THAT CRAP will stick to a wall outside of the sound proof echo chamber that is the GOP's incestuously amplified corporate media machine.

At the beginning of Obama's second term The Heritage Foundation advised Congressional Republicans to ditch all the governing bullshit and stick to inventing scandals. All of those nothing burger scandals have FAILED to resonate with anyone outside the GOP echo chamber. Let's take a look at some of those failed GOP noise machine trumped up "Scandals".


IRS "scandal" = FAIL

#BENGHAZI!!1!!! = FAIL

Bundy Ranch = racist outburst + FAIL

Bergdahl = FAIL, fizzled out in a week

Obamacare won't help anyone = FAIL
and on and on it goes.


The GOP has tried to avoid governing as much as they can. But that lack of desire to do government stuff ran head first into the wall that the GOP wants to build on the Mexican border.

Because the GOP's newest self-manufactured "Crisis" was along the southern border. OMG! there are immigrants and refugees coming here! Aren't you southern state white people who fear and loath immigrants angry?, asked Republicans. Why won't Obama do something said the screechweasels on the right!?!?

So Obama started saying he would "do something"

And that made the screechweasels screech even louder.

How dare Obama do things?!? He isn't the "Decider". He is a tyrant or something, and Republicans started whipping up their hardcore base with promises of impeachable offenses that Republicans are entirely incapable of articulating without using terms so vague it might appear at the bottom of a credit card agreement.

This leaves President Obama in the perfect position to keep Rope-a-Doping these GOP clowns as hard as he wants to.

GOP won't pass any immigration laws? Obama can issue some executive orders. **** will get done. Democratic constituencies will appreciate those moves, it will infuriate the GOP base further, increasing the demands for impeaching Obama over arggle barrgle something something, which will remind Dem voters to get off their asses and vote in 2014, and so on and so forth.

So Very Serious Republicans like Paul Ryan say Impeachment talk is a 'ridiculous game"

Guess what, ********, YOU BUILT THAT. Don't come whining to the rest of us when that thing Republicans built blows up in the face of Republicans.

And Obama knows it.

More below the fold

At this point Obama is the roadrunner and the GOP is Wile E. Coyote, forever doomed to be crushed by the zany ACME traps they have set themselves for Obama, and all the while Obama sticks his tongue out and goes MEEP MEEP before racing off to the music of a happy cartoon xylophone tune.

This is what happens when you tell the GOP base Obama is a lawless tyrant hell bent on destroying 'Murica. They believe you. Then they demand impeachment. Then they get super pissed at GOP leaders who can't deliver on Impeachment because those GOP leaders know it would be laughed at by the larger American public and it would only motivate Dems to vote against their looney wingnut asses.


It's like a DirecTV commercial.


Don't call Obama a tyrant.


When you call Obama a tyrant wingnuts want to impeach him


When wingnuts want to impeach Obama Dem voters get motivated to vote in off year elections.


The GOP really has two choices here, either shitcan the looney impeachment talk OR admit that Obama isn't the lawless tyrant hell bent on destroying the constitution that they've painted him as for the last 5 or 6 years.

But the GOP can't do either of those things or their rabid teabagger base would throw them out faster than you can say Eric Cantor.


Whereas Obama can now continue to rope-a-dope these schmucks to his hearts content.

Don't want to pass a real immigration reform bill that addresses a clear pathway to citizenship? I'll just get my pen and my phone. There is an Executive Order for that.


Which will make wingnuts howl for impeachment,

Which will make Dem voters realize they need to get off their asses and vote in 2014,

Which will make John Boehner cry out in agony at how the WH plotted all this.


Yes, if Obama has mind control powers that make Steve King, Sarah Palin, RW pundits and a host of elected Republicans say stupid **** than yes this is a devious WH plot.

OR, Obama is using a kind of political ju jitsu to make Republicans throw themselves off balance by using the force of their attacks against him against themselves.


Either way it is a win/win for Obama and everyone else in America who actually wants to see these problems solved instead of the shrinking minority of shrieking Republicans who'd rather build a 2,000 mile fence so they can continue screaming at Latino's from the 'Murcian side of the border.

Republicans don't want to fix these problems. They like the status quo as is. They just want to scream about these problems, blame Dems and "Big Gov" and demonize the brown people whom their base clearly has nothing but animosity and loathing for.

Here, Obama has been put in a corner, and now he is using the GOP's frenzied hatred of himself to beat the living **** out of the GOP with their own belligerent momentum against him.

But you keep on weaselscreeching about Obama's tyranny, Mr. Republican man. Please proceed.

Because if Obama is so horrible go ahead and impeach him.

And if not, do kindly shut the hell up, sit the **** down and do your ******* job.

And that job isn't whining to cable news shows about Obama. That job is governing. If you can't do that don't get pissed when Obama does it for you.

Or do get pissed. I don't give a **** anymore what Republicans think.

President Obama has the ability to beat the crap out of Republicans without barely moving. He just dodges their attacks and counter punches while they miss badly on their jabs and tire themselves out.

That's what Rope-a-Dope looks like.

And maybe I am being too kind to Obama on this. Maybe. But either Obama is the all time king of Presidential Rope-a-Dope, a tyrant of the beltway boxing arena, or the GOP is so amazingly incompetent that they have become a Sideshow Bob trapped in a field full of rakes that they have set their themselves.

It's probably a little bit of both.

Here is a belligerent GOP that has zero credibility outside of the beltway, the corporate owned media and the GOP base.

Here is 2nd most popular politician in America named Barack Obama.

And guess what, that weak fickle tyrannical despot Obama is mopping the ******* floor with the GOP.

Because Obama is the Teflon President. Nothing the GOP throws at him sticks. None of their punches land or have any strength behind them. And the only politician in America more popular than Obama is Hillary Clinton.

I'm not saying that President Obama is Muhammad Ali, but the GOP of 2014 sure as **** ain't no Sonny Liston.

So please proceed, you ridiculous screeching right wing nutjobs. It doesn't matter if we call it Rope-A-Dope, 11th dimensional chess or Jedi Mind Tricks, Obama continues to hand these Republicans their asses.

And these modern Republicans deserve to have their asses handed to them.

I leave the floor to you.

This is the biggest load of crap I've seen on these boards in a long time.
Of course you think so, but then again you are playing the part of Wil-E Coyote in this, soooo, yeah...
What? Sorry I just dont buy into your left wing garbage. All I hear is a whining child rant.

The Repubs are better off IMHO to focus on ObamaCare, the IRS, Benghazi, and all the other scandals perpetrated by the Democrats. Concentrate on the things the GOP can use against the Dems in the Senate to gain control of that chamber. Forget Obama, he's a lame duck president already. Too bad they can't sue Harry Reid, they should be talking about how they can't get anything done in the Senate cuz Reid blocks everything coming from the House.

apex you are right that from the very beginning they were more focused on their hatred for Obama then they were for their love of this country. That said it's neither here or there for me. It's two things Obama promised that I have not seen yet. Improved economy and reduced gas prices. That has nothing to do with the GOP IMHO. That's more to do with Obama not having a clue on how to fix the economy. I hoped he would do well but he hasn't. I am all for everyone in this country having health care so I see no issues with "Obamacare". My biggest gripe is the gas prices...

Hard to get a good approval rating, when everything you pass is not even allowed to be debated in the Senate because Reid will not allow it.  But that matters not.  When your buddy Obama came into office, he had both chambers of Congress.  Then he lost the House.  Now he is going to lose the Senate.  You know it's true so you won't even go there.  As far as Alinsky goes, have you ever read Rules for Radicals??  I have and if you don't think Obama is a disciple then you are not pragmatic.  He uses "agitation" all the time.  The Republicans in Congress...The Republicans in Congress....The Republicans in Congress... then ridicule.  So sue me!  But that would not be surprising as Michelle is less supportive of him than you are.  If you think I'm wrong and have read Rules for Radicals which is all about tactics for Community Organizing, then we can debate.  But chances are you have not read it, therefore are coming at this from a position of ignorance and just trying to protect your boyfriend from what you see as a slight.

Keep in mind Pdono that Obama is threatening to LEGALIZE 4-5 MILLION Illegals via executive fiat in the next month or so.  If you are cool with that then ok....  The GOP is trying to check that type of abuse of power.  I guess they could not try and when he loses the Senate this fall we'll just have a King with a Scepter... I mean pen.  This one is about the Employer Mandate, which was in a law HE signed and he basically waived his hand and said, we aren't doing that part of Congressional passed and Presidential signed legislation, because it's not good for me politically.  You cool with that???  Sorry dude but that is ahem..... A BIG F*CKIN DEAL!  Do you understand the precedent that sets if left unchecked??  So we pass a bill that says border security first, then amnesty in stages.  Then he can just go... we are going to do the amnesty now, but not the security until 2020 or so... maybe.  This goes way beyond wasting tax payer dollars.  We cannot as a nation allow Presidents to create laws or choose not enforce laws as he or she sees fit.  Period.  I believe that whether it's a radical liberal Dem in office or a far right wing Conservative.  We are not a nation of Kings.  Obama disagrees.  He needs to be reeled in and his "pen" needs to be used to sign legislation or veto it.  Not create or change laws without Congress at all.  Is the lawsuit the best tactic??  Not sure.  I know the other route is to let him do it, then let it go through the courts as have happend before.  Don't know if that is the best way after 5M illegals have drivers licenses and SSN's do you??  think.gif

There wouldn't be a Tea Party, either, for the same exact reasons.

It's interesting that they write 7 paragraphs on how the House couldn't pass their bill and one sentence on how the Senate couldn't pass theirs.  None of this changes the fact that Obama is preparing to break the law again and this time the ramifications are much much worse.  Sorry but the Congress not getting the POTUS a bill he likes is not reason enough to make one up himself.  That is the fact here.  Does the House have issues?  Certainly.  Does it really matter with the Reid?  Do you really think it's possible for the House to pass a bill that he allows a vote on?  I mean it could be everything they are asking for and Reid still wouldn't allow a vote on it because that is his M.O.  The dysfunction in Congress is certainly not due to one chamber alone.  It has gotten to the point that many in the House want Obama to fail at the expense of the country, but IMO he's asked for it with his unrelenting GOP blame, rhetoric and lawlessness.  I really can't wait until we take the Senate and drop like 100 bills on his desk.  When he doesn't have Reid to shield him from GOP legislation, the other 40% of America that approve of him, will finally see that he is the most partisan President in our lifetime.  He says elections have consequences.  Unless of course that election kicks his Dems out of power and America wants GOP direction.  Then it's the pen.

I remember the last time. Dennis Kucinich and 11 other members of the House sued President Bush over the War Powers Act. In fact there have been several legal challenges over the powers of a president to conduct war. I will certainly concede that Nancy Pelosi's carefully crafted words that the "House" has not sued a president is true, but to say Democrats haven't sued a Republican President is completely false. (I see you yourself changed your words from "Democrats" to "House" in this thread.)

I do wonder how else would you expect presidential powers to be reigned in short of a Constitutional legal challenge? An entire controlling party has not joined to bring a legal challenge against a sitting president before. That is true and now partisans are seizing on that fact as if a legal challenge to a president is some how unprecedented. There are several living former presidents who could easily refute that claim.
