Oh Boy: Obama Sets Gutless-Punk Cocksucker Political Trap and GOP Walks Into It

But, here's the thing: The GOP is walking into the trap because they know it's the right thing to do for America and the gutless cocksucker who's supposedly our president refuses to lead.

Basically, Obama is going to run a platform of irresponsibility and future disaster because he trusts Americans are so stupid they'll reward him for it. And of course the problem with this strategy -- for us -- is that it is 88% likely he's right.

Do I believe in Americans anymore? Less and less each day that passes. I'm kind of tired of conservatives trumpeting American exceptionalism because America seems in short supply of it. Scratch your average "exceptional America" and you find an ordinary decline-and-decay European soft "I want mine" socialist beneath.

So, Obama, having abdicated his responsibility of prudence, leadership, intelligence or idealism (this either proves he is stupid or profoundly cynical), has forced the out-party House of Representatives to take a leadership role -- a role for which they aren't well suited, not because of a lack of individual ability, but because the Constitution is expressly designed for a government led by the President.

But that's what the cocksucker has decided to do -- you guys propose necessary entitlement reforms; I'll just demagogue against then and walk my way into relection.

If I were advising, I'd have strongly advised the GOP to lead on domestic spending cuts -- Jim DeMint's 250 billlion in cuts, not Rand Paul's 500 billiion, just because 250 billion seems less scary to your average American Idiot -- so that they could then announce to the public, "See? We've chopped a fair amount out. But we're still going bankrupt. Do you understand now that this problem can't just be solved with cuts to domestic programs?"

So I'd cut deep on domestic programs now, not just because it's necessary and good anyway, but it serves as a wake-up call to voters -- this is necessary, but it's not sufficient.

But be that as it may, someone has to lead the country, and as our Non-President just wants to fucking golf and talk about how awesome he is, I guess it's up to the people the Constitution doesn't nominate as national leaders to step into the Great Void of Incompetence and Cowardice left by the Bammy-Bam and do something for America.

Okay, here it is, everyone: We've long had a dispute about whether it's better to do the right thing, no matter how unpopular it is or fudge on doing the right thing to stay electable.

We're about to face this dilemma because the GOP is going forward with a plan to reform entitlement spending.

We're probably going to lose the White House in 2012 and a lot of seats from the House, too. We will probably not be able to make any headway in the Senate.

That's the downside. The upside is that this is patriotic and necessary and good.

The only card we have up our sleeve is -- get this -- the media, which knows full well this is necessary and any party addressing it is brave and doing the right thing and any cocksucker abdicating on this issue is a gutless pansy punk who likes to dress the part but who's not really a man down inside, just a vain little boy scrabbling for accolades.

So there you go: Our only possible way of winning on this is if the media goes all-in exposing Obama's and the Democrats' lies on the subject and defends the GOP.

Anyone thrilled? I'm not. But I don't see any other way.

At the end of the day when a gutless, anti-American punk who cares nothing except for his own ego controls the government we face only bad choices.

Coburn: To Close the Financial Deficit, We Must Close the Leadership Deficit: Indeed.

What makes Obama especially gutless isn't just that he's refusing to lead -- that would just be standard cowardice of the voting present variety we've come to expect.

No, it's that the GOP has come to him (as have some Democrats like Dick Durbin and Kent Conrad) and begged him to lead. Telling him, basically, "We know this is hard, but we've got your back -- we'll hang tough on this too, because we know we have to."

Even with that reassurance and pledges of support, he decides he'd rather watch America burn than let his precious ego take the hit of a difficult re-election.
