Boy, if our lame duck President needed to emphasize how much political capital he has lost, all he needed to do was try and demand time in front of Congress late in the game. Which he of course did. And the petulant POTUS tried to upstage a GOP presidential candidate debate to boot!
Since Obama has spent 2.5 years bumbling on jobs and the economy, I am sure we can all wait a day or two longer for his next set of tired and useless proposals. The House Speaker is not impressed either and has told POTUS he can come the day after the debate (with some good solid rational to go with it).
So what is the POTUS’ next move?
Will he pout and whine?
Will he stand outside Congress and demand to be let in?
Will he cry “Racists!”?
What, pray tell, is there for him to do but to pull his foot out of his mouth and come the next day???
