NORQUIST: We got lots of things Obama claims to be for, and we will make — we, the Republicans in the House and Senate — will make him actually make those spending restraints, in order to get the continuing resolution out [for] a week, two weeks, a month. Obama will be on a very short leash, fiscally speaking, over the next four years. He’s not gonna have any fun at all. He may decide to go blow up small countries he can’t pronounce because it won’t be any fun to be here, because he won’t be able to spend the kind of cash he was hoping to.
Think Progress

So much wrong from a pathetic little man.

  • Note that Norquist identifies himself as being one of the Republicans in Congress. He's part of the caucus, evidently. And he claims that Americans for Prosperity is non-partisan.
  • Norquist still has not let go of the idea of using a debt ceiling crisis on a weekly or monthly basis to force spending cuts. That idea is both evil and stupid in many ways.
  • Obama, starting wars for fun? Really?
  • Obama can't pronounce the names of foreign countries? I'll tell you what, Grover; we'll set up a Trivial Pursuit game between you and BHO, loser leaves national politics. Only geography questions will be used.

This pathetic loser keeps on acting like he's in charge, like he can dictate terms, like he can force his 12 year old's fantasy of small government upon an unwilling body politic by sheer force of will.

If Obama can get Norquist off the national political stage it will be a bigger achievement than the ACA or the Nobel Peace Prize.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
