Pounding Nails into His Own Coffin

Stephen Green of Monument, CO has some choice words for President Barack Obama:

Steve McCann has an excellent piece at American Thinker this morning, arguing compellingly that the Obama presidency is “failed” and effectively “over” because he has “abdicated” leadership to Congress. It’s good stuff, big chunks of red meat for a Monday morning.

But there might be a simpler reason.

President Obama has had a good two-plus years, handing out deficit-busting goodies to all the favorite Democrat constituencies. The EPA has become the monster it always threatened to be, the unions are stuffed full of automakers and have the mighty Boeing trembling at their power. The insurance companies are wards of the state, the medical profession has been saddled and broken. The symbiosis of Washington and Wall Street is complete, each too big to fail and utterly, sickeningly and dangerously co-dependent.

But yesterday’s debt deal showed that Obama’s goodie bag is empty. There’s nothing more to hand out. Santa Claus has left the building, and the Grinch has taken his place....
