Obama Puts Gun To The Head Of Seniors & Vets, While Mitch McConnell Caving On Debt Ceiling, Help Mitch Find His Balls

Michelle Malkin used the "banging the head against the wall" motif to illustrate today the latest outrage of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell outlined a complex and procedure-heavy proposal Tuesday (details here) to give President Obama the ability to raise the debt ceiling in increments without Republican support. McConnell unveiled the plan just before leaving Capitol Hill Tuesday to meet with Obama to continue discussions for a possible deal between the parties.

McConnell was careful to describe his plan as a "last-choice option" but a several conservative groups took aim at the minority leader for effectively destroying, in their view, any leverage Republicans had to negotiate with the president.

This is utterly stupid and cowardly of McConnell to suggest such a thing. Hell, why don't we go further and just make Obama dictator, because Mitch the Ball-less Wonder wants to essentially cede Congressional power to the Regime.

Is Mitch afraid of looking mean, because the Dick-In-Chief held a gun to the heads of seniors and veterans today over the debt ceiling (Fox News).
"I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven't resolved this issue," Obama said. "Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it," Obama said. He said veterans checks and disability benefits could also be affected without a deal.

Never mind that seniors, whom the liberals love to scare over Socialist Security and Medicare, have not received a COLA (cost of living adjustment) for the last three years.


So who's the one taking hostages now?
