Obama ‘May Decide To Go Blow Up Small Countries’ For Fun, Norquist Predicts

Although a growing number Republicans are distancing themselves from the Americans for Tax Reform anti-tax pledge, Grover Norquist is confident that Congressional Republicans will force massive cuts to government programs, rather than accept any tax increases. On Thursday, he vowed to stymie President Obama’s agenda so much that the administration will have nothing left to do but launch an unnecessary war.

Norquist made the bizarre Wag the Dog prediction on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal:

NORQUIST: We got lots of things Obama claims to be for, and we will make — we, the Republicans in the House and Senate — will make him actually make those spending restraints, in order to get the continuing resolution out [for] a week, two weeks, a month. Obama will be on a very short leash, fiscally speaking, over the next four years. He’s not gonna have any fun at all. He may decide to go blow up small countries he can’t pronounce because it won’t be any fun to be here, because he won’t be able to spend the kind of cash he was hoping to.

Watch the video:



It is noteworthy that Norquist says “we” when referring to the Congressional Republicans. This would seem to conflict with his group’s frequent claim that it is a “a non-partisan coalition of taxpayers and taxpayer groups who oppose all tax increases.” And it seems to ignore the 50 Congressional Republicans who have already distanced themselves from his ironclad oath.

Norquist’s comment that spending cuts would lead President Obama to launch a war of choice, while likely intended as merely a tasteless joke, also demonstrates his shoddy memory. Indeed George W. Bush’s $806 billion Iraq War — waged under false pretenses and unfunded — was a major driver of the decline from the surpluses left by President Bill Clinton to the shortfalls inherited by President Obama. Norquist cheered the effort at the time — and apparently still doesn’t realize that overseas invasions actually require federal spending.

OP: There you go. Straight from the mouth of Mr. Stubblie-Checks himself.

"He may decide to go blow up small countries he can’t pronounce because it won’t be any fun to be here, because he won’t be able to spend the kind of cash he was hoping to." Tushay, Stubbles. Right you are. President Obama may also decide that he thinks you're his soul mate and right this minute is getting a divorce from Michelle to explore this new avenue of love... But... I wouldn't hold my breath.</a>

It's like he's forgotten that's what his arse of a President did when it came to Iraq. Dumb, narrow-minded fuckwit.

lmao, look at this poopy head struggling to stay relevent.
underfiend 14th-Dec-2012 09:44 pm (UTC)
My thought exactly.

Dude is just Try Hardtm trying to stay in the spotlight. He's Palining so hard it's making Palin look good.

That muppet isn't even an elected official, someone really needs to give him a chair so he can have a damn seat and a cool glass of STFU.

Is that desperation I'm smelling on you, Grover? Maybe due to the fact that more and more of your Repug friends are abandoning your pledge and some of the ones taking office next year are saying they won't even sign your stupid pledge? Are you seeing your power and hold over the party hemorrhaging by the day? Is that what's making you freak out?

And yes, I'm enjoying this... NGL.

No joke.
borderline_mary 14th-Dec-2012 12:02 am (UTC)
So I can't decide if he's going for President-as-Toddler-Throwing-Tantrum, President-as-Angry-Black-Man, or President-as-Unstable-Terrorist with this.

This assgoblin needs to sit the fuck down.

It says a lot that Norquist's idea of "fun" is blowing up small countries full of brown people -- and that he thinks waging undeclared wars doesn't count as "spending."

If President Obama does get "bored" with Republicans continuing to the the Party of No wrt finances, I hope he makes gay marriage federally recognized and packs the Supreme Court with LGBTQ atheist WoCs. Didn't FDR add a couple of Supreme Court seats just because he could?

(And yes, I understand that those things require Congress too. But still.)

That's a good one! I hadn't considered that angle but it doesn't really surprise me. He's been doing his best to blow up our country for a long time now.

If I had to handicap the members of which major party would be LESS likely to be able to pronounce the names of any countries, it sure as hell wouldn't be the Democrats.

I cannot even tell you how much I cannot stand him. I cannot wait until he becomes irrelevant. Oh, and also:

How much does the drone warfare in Pakistan cost? Or the hundred plus Tomahawks we dropped on LIbya? That was Shrub Jr. right?

Someone's living in a dream. Why are people still listening to him?
