Paralleling Caesar’s part in the fall of Rome, Obama will most likely follow Clinton’s suggestion, regarding raising the debt ceiling, and thumb his nose at Congress and govern by Executive Order, …. as he’s begun to on other issues, making Congress near obsolete!
According to Bruce Bartlett, former policy analyst for the Reagan Administration, the 14th Amendment not only demands America’s debt be paid, it justifies the president acting on his own to raise the debt ceiling.
Clinton told “The National Memo’s” Joe Conason, that if he were in Obama’s situation, that’s what he’d do …. that he‘d invoke the Fourteenth Amendment to raise America’s debt ceiling “without hesitation, and force the courts to stop me.”
That would not only deflate the Tea Partyer’s demands; it would distract the media from what divisiveness, Obama continues to work, behind closed doors!
