Dudes and Dudettes…just wait until you hear what congress-critter Danny K. Davis has to say. Talk about a clueless-wonder, this leftist-loon fits the bill to a tee and then some! This will leave you shaking your head wondering how time after time nitwits elect people such as him…I guess this is where El Rushbo’s description of’low-information‘ voters come to mind!

See what you think. – This is via DC:

WASHINGTON — Democratic Illinois Rep. Danny K. Davis told The Daily Caller that President Obama should have the power to raise the nation’s debt ceiling without congressional approval, citing the example of President Abraham Lincoln issuing the Emancipation Proclamation as a good use of presidential authority.

“Sometimes when we’ve gotten great answers is when presidents have had enough authority to take some actions,” Davis told TheDC on Capitol Hill Friday. “I mean, remember that we just celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, and if Abraham Lincoln had not had the power, authority and the will to make that decision, we may have gone on with the war that was going to last several additional years and much longer, and thousands and thousands of people could have and would have, in all probability, lost their lives.”

“So, I think that we should have enough faith and confidence in the president and the president ought to have the authority to make that decision without Congress placing limits or determinates or determinations, and so yes, I think the president should have the ability to make that decision.”

House Speaker John Boehner opposes giving Obama the authority to unilaterally increase the debt ceiling.

“Congress is never going to give up our ability to control the purse,” Boehner said in December.

“The fact is the debt limit ought to be used to bring fiscal sanity to Washington, D.C.”

The U.S. reached the debt limit on New Year’s Eve, but the Treasury Secretary has taken steps to create an additional $200 billion in “headroom” until the ceiling is raised again. The national debt is currently $16.4 trillion.

Dismissing Republican criticism, Davis said Congress should not “hamper” the president on the issue.

“It 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,” Davis told TheDC.

“But, it would certainly give the president the kind of power that sometimes is needed for the decision-making that must take place as opposed to the haggling, the wrangling, the discussing, the disagreeing, the cliffhanging and all of those kinds of things.”

If Davis and his ilk on the dem side get their way it will be more ‘Power to the Dictator-in-Chief!’…’Power to the People!‘ and all that jazz! In the meantime our country will never be able to recover the destruction congress-critters such as him have wrought, I’m including RINOs too!

Add your thoughts, what message do you have for Danny K. Davis? – Especially when it comes to him using the ‘Emancipation Proclamation‘ as well to score some kind of pathetic points!

  1. This is what critters in congress like from their Dear Leader! Danny Davis ought to be a happy-camper.


    Hope everyone is happy. – We the People sure aren’t…it’s gonna kill many across this land in more ways than one.


    I guess Sir Stupid wants to live under a dictator he isnt satisfied witha president

  3. 1st= Screw Obama and anything he wants, demands or otherwise has to say,,2nd = screw this ignorant ass from IL who got elected by even more ignorant asses that want to be sheep following blatant traitors to a socialist demise.

  4. Thoroughly fed up with lefties of any stripe. That most emphatically includes the left-tard voters.

  5. confirms what I already knew about most Blacks.
    they think $ grows on trees.

    Poor reasoning capacity, yes?

    “Somebody ELSE gosta pay!”

  7. misterbill says:

    Such a dumb ass. Let’s let the knitting club of Peoria make the decision as to what our military does. Why should hey worry about a body of citizens elected to do that for us??

  8. When are we going to see the folks that interview these idiots start calling them out on their stupidity? I would love to see the interviewer interrupt the congresscritter with a ‘Whoa. Are you a total dumbshit or what? You have no freakin’ clue what you are talking about.’ We on the right side of life are too polite most times. (Mitt comes to mind) Sometimes you have to fight fire with fire.

    • Pow! Right in the Kisser!…is exactly what’s needed. Couldn’t agree with you more gemalo. – I, along with others have said as such for years now….when, oh when, will we ever see this happen?

  9. Cinnamon Girl says:

    Yes, I do have a question or two:

    Why is it that every single time Democrats do not get their way it’s called haggling, wrangling, wrestling, and what have you?

    Why is it that every single time a Democrat like you, black or white, gets in a tizzy over not getting his way, race is invoked? Or, as your Dear Leader said, “they cling to their Bibles and their guns”, which is really a thinly-veiled reference to a stereotype of white people?

    Why is it okay for a Democrat president to have executive power but not a Republican one?

    Let me tell you, it is high time that someone put Biden, Obama, Lewis, Feinstein, Frank, and congressmen like you to the task for gross exaggeration, subjugating the American citizens, and lying, stealing, cheating, wasting, and thwarting.

    If there is any justice, one day each and every one of you will be swept out of Congress and real, honest, responsible American men and women will be put in your place. Otherwise, may you suffer the consequences of the actions that may be put in place by your own leader when you are now only too happy to let him have that power!

    • Howdy CG…

      Just poppin’ in for a few before I hit the sack…once again a thought provoking post from ya gal. You never mince any words whatsoever…just wanted to throw in I’m with you on the race-card BS being played constantly. People in the real world have had their fill with this…in fact who in the heck listens to that crap anymore? And what in the hell does the ‘Emancipation Proclamation’ have to do with this nation going bankrupt?

      Does Danny Davis realize the track record his messiah has acquired when it comes to putting us in a hole we’ll never be able to dig out of or not? – Obama has set another record alright, he has increased our debt more than any presidents previous to him combined….and we have four more years to go!

      Oh yeah…shhh, don’t tell the media! – Hypocrisy-Deluxe….period!


    The trouble with liberals is that they shoot off their mouths without their brains and always manage to say something stupid

  11. The great thing about the Voting Rights Act is that it creates safe minority seats that provide us with such great entertainers as Sheila Jackson-Lee, Danny Davis, John Conyers and all the rest of the CBC.

  12. So true, so true…with one exception, I don’t want the ‘debt ceiling’ raised in any way whatsoever. – Reduce the debt first and foremost!


  13. I’ve never been able to stand the greenie-weenie Udall’s…this is a perfect example of why. ~
