A fascinating bit of gossip from Joe Scarborough, on his MSNBC Morning Joe show (via RCP, which has video):
Joe Scarborough: “I have got to clear this up. Mika heard two days ago on Capitol Hill Democrats all saying the same thing. And that is, this president has been invisible, he is not a leader. They said this all behind closed doors. Democratic leaders, Democratic rank-and-file. In fact, 40, 50 of the most powerful Democrats on the Hill. I will just stop right there. The complaints were all the same. The president has vanished. He has left us here alone again like he did with health care. Where is he? Now, they didn’t call him a loser, but they sure as hell didn’t call him a leader.”

Historians agree empires and presidencies die from imperial overreach. Now Barack Obama’s closest allies in the Democratic Party, the far-Left, and the media are encouraging him to take actions that will lead inexorably to his impeachment. The president’s hubris and lawlessness seem destined to collide with Washington’s tense polemical atmosphere in a showdown that will put his presidency on the chopping block.
The leaders of the House Democratic Caucus this week urged the president to usurp Congressional authority and order the government to continue borrowing money, (mis)using the 14th Amendment. Caucus Chairman John Larson of Connecticut called the provision “the fail-safe option” to assure Republicans do not hold the American people hostage.” Larson added House Democrats are “prepared to stand behind” Obama all the way.
Just when you thought all the talk about Barack Obama usurping the Constitution to bring the United States into compliance with the UN and the Sharia-dominated New International Order was little more than right-wing conspiratorial propaganda—Think Again!The “Appointed One,” in cunning Islamic style, is covering all the bases by laying the foundation, including placing an ally in the United States Supreme Court!
Why is it always after the fact, after the elections and after critical appointments that the real vetting of candidates finally takes place? Simple. When you have a clueless, apathetic and disengaged American populace, coupled with a leftist liberal media that’s already in the tank for the “Messharia,” you take the fast track to confirmation and worry about the repercussions later. After all, it’s a lot easier to select than it is to eject a political appointee.
My message to the American people: you are not insane, but the politicians and the mainstream media are.
Most of the time, they are lying to you, trying to manipulate you or ridiculing you, if you question their “wisdom”, no matter how wrong they might be.
It is a waste of time writing to your elected officials. They only care about their political careers. They are parasites. Ayn Rand described them accurately:

All this talk about Obama’s birthplace and birth certificates has caused
everyone to lose sight of the single, undeniable fact that renders Obama an
illegitimate president. One of his parents was not a U.S. citizen when he was
born and he very likely lost his natural-born citizenship status in 1967 or 1968
when he moved to Indonesia and was adopted by his mother’s Indonesian husband,
On many occasions, since Obama was ensconced, he and his
defenders have tried to promote a lie, without original, eye-witnessed,
medically attested documented evidence, which would exist if he were a natural
born citizen, that he was born in the U.S. However, they ignorantly fail to
realize that Obama’s geographic birth only matters with regard to his legitimacy
as President if the other metrics of natural born citizenship are met. Those
being his biological origins and his continuity of natural-born status from
birth to election.
