Barack “Crazy Eddie”* Obama to announce plans to flip Senate in 2014.

No, that’s not a typo.

Obama to announce Tuesday he will regulate existing power plants as part of climate strategy

President Obama will announce Tuesday in a speech at Georgetown University that he plans to regulate greenhouse-gas emissions from existing power plants, according to individuals who have been briefed on the plan but asked not to be identified.

Because, of course, all of those Democratic Senators drowning up for election in Republican states don’t have enough to worry about. Nope! Barry wants to throw them another anchor, bless his heart.  You know, it’s funny: the way things are going, I can totally see George W Bush being asked to campaign for candidates in 2016.

…Will Barack Obama?

*Classical reference… no, I think that this one should be quoted.  Crazy Eddie is the folk ‘hero’ of a particular alien society created by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle.  He is characterized as follows:

…Always he does the wrong things for excellent reasons. He does the same things over and over, and they always bring disaster, and he never learns.

When a city has grown so overlarge and crowded that it is in immediate danger of collapse… when food and clean water flow into the city at a rate just sufficient to feed every mouth, and every hand must work constantly to keep it that way… when all transportation is involved in moving vital supplies, and none is left over to move people out of the city should the need arise… then it is that Crazy Eddie leads the movers of garbage out on strike for better working conditions.

There are times that I fear that this is what Barack Obama aspires to be.

    Obama would have to be organized enough to aspire to be Crazy Eddie…

    Not Obama… Valerie I could see, or maybe Axelrod and Hizzonner Rahm…

      I do not think he cares how his handlers pull his strings as long as he can lead the rich life.

        Obama does not want to be President.

        Obama wants to be an X-President.

    Moe – If this immigration travesty passes, I think there’s a good chance Republicans could lose 5 seats and we’re back to a filibuster-proof Senate that gave us Obamacare and the stimulus.

    • Moe_Lane says:

      Umm. No. I frankly don’t expect that immigration reform is going to make a damned bit of difference in the 2014 elections one way or the other, past the odd race here or there. One reason why I am not particularly het up about the issue.

        The math is worth a read. DrewM is quite opposed to amnesty, and his writing shows it.

        What I take away is that, even if Romney had won 74% of the *existing* Hispanic vote, he would still be a private citizen.
        .
        Therefore, if the new additions vote the same way, legally or not, it won’t swing races .. there just aren’t enough Hispanics.

        Hi Moe – But why? How does adding 11 – 20 million new Democrat voters to the overall total help our side? Is there something you know that other GOP operatives don’t? Maybe by 2014 they might not be well mobilized but by 2016 or thereafter? It doesn’t seem like GOP could ever win a national election if this goes through – look at the 1986 amnesty. California went red in ’88 and has been heavily blue ever since.

        • Moe_Lane says:

          Ah, you’re one of those.

          I will be indulgent: your next comment will be a list of the five Republican Senators who will lose election next year, plus an explanation of why we’re not going to win a single Democratic at-risk seat. :looking at watch: You have until noon.

          • Moe_Lane says:

            Oh, I’m sorry: your time is up. Of course, it was a trick question: even if immigration reform does have the backlash that Mr. Concern Troll hopes that it would have (big if) the GOP base would simply replace the offending Senators in the primaries. Like the GOP base has been known to do. Who here thinks that a GOP candidate would have difficulty winning in Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, or Wyoming? And who here thinks that Maine voters give a sh*t about the GOP base’s opinion of Susan Collins?

            PS: I would appreciate it if concern trolls would actually read the damned immigration legislation. Do us that courtesy, at least.

            Regrettably, Moe, I must point out .. Mourdock.
            .
            Who the hell expected him to lose to Donnelly?

          • Moe_Lane says:

            Absent Todd Akin’s grim determination to have a meltdown, Mourdock’s comments would not have cost him the election. Frankly, the lesson there is: sometimes there’s a reason why everybody’s telling you to quit. Whether or not it’s ‘fair.’

          • acat says:

            Concur, Moe.
            .
            Getting Akin over the hump in the GOP primary was the best money the Dems spent that year… And if the Tea Party are taking notes, don’t get fooled again.
