Dear Leader is counting on the distractions of the Republican nominating process to enable his minions to effect drastic changes in America.
With all eyes on the Republicans and their presidential-nomination donnybrook, behind the scenes President Obama is still busy with the “fundamental transformation” of the US that he promised during the 2008 campaign.
While analysts have been chewing over Rick Santorum’s surprise near-victory over front-runner Mitt Romney in the Iowa caucuses last week, the real action has been going on under the media radar in Washington, where:
* A rogue Senate, under the feckless majority leader, Harry Reid, has not passed a budget resolution since April 29, 2009 — nearly a thousand days. Since then, the government has been funded under a series of continuing resolutions and other gimmicks. The Senate adamantly blocked consideration of Paul Ryan’s “Path to Prosperity” budget, which passed the Republican-controlled House back in April 2011.
