Obama-Boehner Dog and Pony Show
Dooms U.S.A.

July 26, 2011 (EIRNS)—This release was issued today by the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee.

Lyndon LaRouche warned today that the United States may be doomed within weeks, if the debt game being played by President Obama and Speaker Boehner is allowed to play out. When all is said and done, the combination of Schachtian austerity and hyperinflation that underlies all of the so-called "competing" plans for solving the debt ceiling and the Federal debt, will doom the United States to certain destruction. The only alternative, as LaRouche Democrat Kesha Rogers declared in a public statement released last night after the Obama and Boehner TV appearances, is to "cut the bullshit" and pass Glass Steagall and remove President Obama from office by invoking the 25th Amendment.

While President Obama's nationally televised address from the White House on Monday night was prompted by briefings over the weekend that he had been completely abandoned by his core 2008 voter base, his 15 minute attack on the Republican budget plan only made voters more angry at him. This is not a zero-sum game. Voters are enraged at the sheer corruption and incompetence of the entire political class in Washington, and at the leadership of both political parties, who are seen as contemptible losers who are destroying the country by their foolishness.

The reality is that some eleventh hour deal on the debt ceiling will do absolutely nothing to change the fact that the United States and Europe are doomed, unless there is a revolutionary change in policy, precisely as spelled out by LaRouche—starting with Obama's Constitutional ouster and the passage of Glass Steagall. The poisonous "living theater" drama being staged on Capitol Hill and at the White House is just that—a tale told by fools, but signifying nothing. The American people know it, in their gut, and want nothing of it. And any Washington politician who wants to survive is going to have to drop the partisan parliamentary insanity and join with LaRouche and the Six in achieving the only measures that will avert imminent doom.
