Allen West on the Senate and Obama
Posted by Steve Markowitz on October 17, 2013
The battle is over. President Obama has soundly defeated the hapless Republicans in Congress over the US budget deficit and Obamacare
The President was elected for a second term based on his Leftist policies and the promise to continue onward with his signature program, better known as Obamacare. In addition, the American people gave the President’s party control of the Senate thereby neutralizing the Republican’s advantage in the House of Representatives. The American people have spoken and must live with the consequences.
As his Blog previously proffered, the Republicans should have acknowledged the realities of not only the political landscape, but also what the American people demanded by the election. They should have allowed the President’s programs to implode under their own weight. Instead, Republicans chose a battle they could not win and now pay a political price, humiliation at the hands of the strongest Community Organizer in the nation.
Today President Obama gloated over his victory, as expected from the most partisan president of modern time. He blamed Republicans for threatening default on America’s debt that “inflicted completely unnecessary damage (to) our economy”. In addition, Obama said that the Republican’s actions slowed the economy’s growth and set back employers’ plans to hire. The President is clearly setting the stage to blame Republicans for the ongoing economic malaise caused by his failed policies. Why not? Obama never takes responsibility for any of his policies. Shame on the Republicans for their inept actions.
A Republican with more common sense, former Congressman Allen West, shared his thoughts on the President and the lame body that calls itself the U.S. Senate stating:
I’m watching the spectacle occurring on the Senate floor. They have passed the 60 vote threshold for ending cloture. I want the American people to understand that tonight the Constitutional Republic we know as America has suffered a horrible defeat. Obamacare is not the law of the land. It is an edict handed down by a tyrant, not a President. The US Senate has just voted to affirm a new precedent that the executive branch can amend law without Congressional approval, and Congress allows it. The waivers, exemptions, and delays implemented by President Obama have delineated a separation, not of powers, but between the political elite and their cronies – and you, my fellow Americans. This is reprehensible, and we can expect even more bad behavior from a President that continues to spit on our Constitution and in our eyes…and smile. The incessant government spending continues with no solution for economic growth. Anyone voting for this tonight owes some explaining to Americans….but maybe not. As Obama stated, “I won.”
