There are several stories this morning that Obama and his gang have a plan to force through unpopular financial reform and cap and tax legislation during the lame duck session following the November elections so that Democrats won’t have to be on record as voting for them before facing the voters.

The game is never to persuade anyone of the virtues of his policies, because his policies are terrible, but to simply ram everything through by any means necessary. The Chicago Way.

The $20 Billion that BP has agreed to set aside for the payment of claims will not be administered by an independent legal process but by Obama and his czars. That makes it another slush fund for Obama to reward friends and punish enemies. Rep. Michelle Bachmann points out that this is unconstitutional.
Last night on CNN former Clinton Administration message man James Carville said: “It looks as if President Obama applied a little old-school Chicago persuasion to the oil executives.” Making “offers you can’t refuse” may be a great way to run the mob, but it is no way to run a country.
