Obama pre-emptively shuts down Government to appease GOP

Rate: 11 Flag

WASHINGTON – Continuing his pattern of negotiating before being at the negotiating table, President Barack Obama shut down the Federal Government today.

“We must work together,” said Obama, on the 16th hole of Pebble Beach. “By shutting down the government right now, we’re showing Republicans that we are open to their suggestions.”

Having won control of the House, Republicans enter the new Congress confident and with one major agenda item – destroy Obama. Noted for his need to have Republicans like him, Obama used an obscure Constitutional law to shut down the federal government, as well as all state and local governments.

“We mean business,” said Obama. “I’m well aware that Republicans want to destroy my Presidency and legacy. It’s time to meet them halfway.”

For their part, Republicans were not pleased.

“Barack Obama’s socialist agenda will not stop with shutting down the government,” said incoming Speaker of the House John Boehner. “Until Obama begins impeachment proceedings on himself, this country will never be safe from terrorist attack.”

Obama Senior Adviser David Axelrod said that the plan for the President to impeach himself is on the table.

“We’re looking at it,” said Axelrod. “All I know is that having the Government open hasn’t helped us at all. We’re open to any and all alternatives that Republicans want so that they’ll play golf with us.”

It does kind of look that way, doesn't it...? Funny stuff.
Hee hee. It's not quite that bad, but this is still pretty funny!
Funny! What with the miasmic Trash Care protests in AZ and the Water Care hearings in KY that preserve the teapers rights to bladder cancer, it's only righteous that the President should shut down the federal gov't till they get the states straightened out.
From my poor progressive heart- I'm laughin' and kinda cryin'.
I think that's the least he can do. The voters have spoken. They want chaos, and they want it now.
Hey, Mr. Sarcasm: The President won the Nobel Peace Prize! Remember?
“We mean business,” said Obama. “I’m well aware that Republicans want to destroy my Presidency and legacy. It’s time to meet them halfway.”

when people do things you think are crazy, remember to check their motivation.

"change you can believe in" (in beltway-speak) is 'no change at all.' obama had no intention of changing anything. his role was to preside over the repair of the latest social rape with public money, then gracefully step aside to let the next social rape commence, with a little shrug, and a murmured "they was too strong for me."

but i'm confident 'progressives' deserve to be betrayed, i've never met one who actually wants to change things.
Now this is a Dream Act that one can believe in.

In good satire, there is a grain of truth. This qualifies. Rated
For a minute, this article could have been straight out of the headlines. Wait, it's not real? Could have fooled me. Nice job...as usual.
Reads like something from The Onion William K. Funny, clever stuff that cuts uncomfortably close to the truth.
It probably won't take long for this to move to the non fiction file.
Nice one! Well done!
We as Americans need to realize that both parties now represent the same interests in this country. The sooner we as Americans we hold our elected officials responsible the better we will be in the long run. The United States is in decline, due to the complete corruption of the political process. The only question we face now is are we Britain or are we the Soviet Union?
Nothing like being a self-hating Democrat.
Since becoming President Obama has more or less guaranteed his family a secure place to live without fear of foreclosure. That's a goal any man can admire in these troubled days. If he can swing another four years he's got it made.

I feel guilty for laughing at this because it seems scarily plausible. Impeach himself -- absolutely hilarious.
