Has Obama suddenly grown a pair? Republicans have been punking him for six years, opposing and viciously criticizing every policy he’s enacted or proposed while at the same time refusing to enact or propose any practical alternatives. They’ve been like fans in the bleachers thinking they’re players because they’ve thrown beer bottles at the center fielder.
Now the do-nothing Republicans in Congress have grown hysterical at the prospect of Obama using executive orders to try and make some repairs to the broken immigration system — which they think they have a moral right to ignore.
They’re squealing like stuck pigs at the very idea that Obama might take action on an issue that they don’t have the guts or common decency to address themselves. They’re talking about impeaching him — talking about shutting down the government again or refusing to pay America’s debts in retaliation.
Obama has always bent over backwards to avoid projecting an image of “angry young black man”, and with the Republican gains in the recent midterms they seem to have thought they could get him go even further and address them as “massa”. But if there was ever a time for the young black man to get angry, it’s now, when he has nothing left to lose.
All he has to do is say “Bring it on, eunuchs” to collapse their whole house of cards, to reveal them as the drunken irresponsible bleacher bums they are. What fun it would be to watch that happen.
I hate Obama and look forward cheerfully to the day he leaves office forever, but I’d sure love to see him kick some flabby white Republican ass on his way out.
