Obama insults his base with his ‘second term’ wish list.

He’ll get away with it, of course.

(H/T: Hot Air Headlines) Apparently the President wants to spend his extremely hypothetical second term doing the following:

  • Repealing DOMA;
  • Passing another DREAM Act;
  • ‘Reforming’ Wall Street; and
  • ‘Investing’ in schools.

Now, I’m not going to fall into the trap of getting sidelined discussing the merits of any or all of those proposals*.  Instead, I’m going to ask: just how stupid does President Obama think Democrats are, anyway?  From 2009 to 2011 the Democratic Party had between 256 to 258 votes in the House, and 57 to 60 in the Senate.  If the President was such a blithering incompetent leader that he couldn’t pass wish-list legislation then, in what alternate universe could anyone legitimately expect him to pass a similar list in any hypothetical future administration? – Because the Democrats aren’t going to enjoy that kind of lopsided majorities in Congress again any time soon.  In fact, starting next January they’re probably not going to enjoy a majority in Congress at all.

You know, I’m used to the President lying to me.  It’s a thing.  I’ve almost grown comfortable with it.  But Obama lying to his own base is pretty darn low-rent of him.  Especially since he’s just doing it to get money out of them…

*And, according to the Fox News article, the Romney campaign isn’t taking the bait either.

Romney and the Republican National Committee, though, are sticking to the issues of the economy and spending. The Republican National Committee released a new web video Monday slamming Obama for his “broken promises” on deficits and debt.

Which is, of course, the right call to make.

    But… but… He’s the ONE. I think he believes too much of his own press if you ask me, and the elites can’t be bothered to consider the possibilities that they might be WRONG. That’s why they consider themselves elites. Obama thinks he is one of the uber-elite, and us peons better like it. Except of course no elite knows my needs and desires like I do, so they all go pound sand down a rat hole.

    Obama’s base is beneath insult. These are the people who think of Franks, Kennedy, and Pelosi as political lions.

    Do you really want us to answer that question or is this just a rhetorical question?

    Actually Moe, I’m pretty used to him lying to his base as well. He’s not going to re-promise to close GTMO either.

    Heck Moe, he went Gay for Pay; do you really think he though twice about this?

    So, he had the stimulus to save the schools and the teachers. Then, there was the 45 billion more that he got right after the stimulus to save the teachers, police, and firepersons jobs. Now, he’s promising another round of “investing” to toss at the schools so they can waste it on hiring another administrator to provide community outreach or oversea teacher-student relations. Maybe it will fund another goody bag of fisting paraphernalia. Might as well since we’re all getting royally screwed.
