Senate GOP Ponders Ceding Power To President Obama

 

 

 

 

” Days before the March 1 deadline, Senate Republicans are circulating a draft bill that would cancel $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts and instead turn over authority to President Barack Obama to achieve the same level of savings under a plan to be filed by March 8.

The five- page document, which has the tacit support of Senate GOP leaders, represents a remarkable shift for the party. Having railed against Senate Democrats for not passing a budget, Republicans are now proposing that Congress surrender an important piece of its Constitutional “power of the purse” for the last seven months of this fiscal year.

As proposed, lawmakers would retain the power to overturn the president’s spending plan by March 22, but only under a resolution of disapproval that would demand two-thirds majorities in both the House and Senate to prevail over an Obama veto.

The proposal would require — like the sequester — that no more than $42.6 billion of the cuts come at the expense of defense programs. But the elaborate, almost Rube Goldberg construct is already provoking sharp criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike and reflects a political scramble to escape the fallout from the sequester.”

Hamas Fires Rocket From Hospital And Blows Up Bus

 

Two journalists have confirmed that Palestinians have fired a long-range rocket at Israel from next to Al Shifa hospital in Gaza.  Neither journalist, of course, made it the headline, it was just mentioned in passing.  The first was Jodi Rudgren of The New York Times who, in writing a lengthy article about Palestinians suffering at the hospital, noted in passing:

 

 

 ” Hamas and other Palestianian militants hide behind civilians and deliberately attack civilians with great joy.  Yet Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan, who dreams of being leader of the Muslim world, calls Israel a “terrorist state.”  That shows why Israel cannot bow to the mostly demonic “international community.” “

“OBAMA CAMP CONDEMNS ROMNEY BEFORE CONDEMNING ATTACKS IN EGYPT, LIBYA”

  “At 11:53pm last night Talking Points Memo released a statement from the Obama campaign condemning Mitt Romney for
criticizing something the White House itself disavowed — an appalling apology issued by
the State Department.

  Eight hours later , President Obama finally got around to condemning the monsters who attacked us on our own soil and killed our fellow citizens.

  Yesterday, on the 11th anniversary of September 11, the Obama White House snubbed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu , accepted an invitation from David Letterman , and apologized to Islamists upset over
a film that mocks Islam and Mohammed — something “artists” in America do to Christianity with my tax dollars on a fairly regular basis.”
