Dem congressman compares debt-ceiling blank check to Emancipation Proclamation. Rep. Danny K. Davis (D-IL) says we should not “hamper” the president on the issue of the debt limit. Giving Obama a blank check “would certainly be an expression of the kind of power that we were willing and are willing to provide the president with. Power grab? That might be going a bit far.” No, we don’t see no stinkin’ power grab.

Forget remarks about comparing apples and oranges… these boobs are now comparing apples and magical disappearing nuclear-powered toothbrushes. Lurid deductive powers would be a step or ten UP.

I think Congress should “hamper” the president every day in every way it least those that are not sniffing Obama’s butt.

I think that’s what the Republicans were sent there to do. But not a one of ‘em is doing their job.

Why not? Just as the Emancipation Proclamation did not free even one slave (as it applied only to Confederate Territory) the so-called “Debt Ceiling” is an equally meaningless gesture.

Did you expect anything else from an affirmative action entitlement minded parasite? I’m sure this useless turd had been sucking off the system for most of his life and wouldn’t want anything to happen to the gravy train.
When the SHTF, I hope this clown is one of the first to go.

Mr. Davis… Who is “we”? Who is this “we” that you are speaking of? This “we” does not include me and I can certainly say that you do not speak for me for you are a fool if you want to give him more power, but i certainly don’t.

I’m so sick of hearing about this and that being compared to slavery and emancipation proclamation. As Bee has pointed out, it did not free one southern slave. Does anyone know why this was not applied to the North? I will let you think about it for a day and then post the answer.

I use to think Lincoln was a very good president. After researching much of his writings, actions and any thing else that can be found on he and Mary Todd, I’ve come to the conclusion that Lincoln was 1st a true bigot, 2nd he trampled upon the Constitution just like barry the other 1 term Senator from Illinois. He imprisoned those who opposed he and his line of thinking. He even deported the governor of Ohio to Canada for opposing his policies. Mary Todd and her family where war time profiters. She along with her family would just take confiscated cotton, tobacco, and other items from the south and then move them by train to Baltimore. From there the “smuggled” goods where placed on ships bound for England. All the time making huge profits and pocketing every last dime.

So back to the fool congressman. Until someone within the msm calls he and others on this line of thinking, they will continue to use this line of thinking to further their communist agenda.

I thought “Lincoln” sucked. Not only inaccurate but there was no context. I felt like I walked in on act II of a three-act play.

Just to update the reason Lincoln’s proclamation wasn’t for the Northern States was due to the fact that it would have been the death of indentured servitude and the destruction of the manufacturing that was benefiting from it.
