VIDEO: White House Beginning to WRITHE in Desperation

Hot Air began reporting on this yesterday and Real Clear Politics has the video of the Fox News Alert from this morning. In any case, it appears that Obama's preference to outsource strong-arm tactics to his Community Organisms is giving way to the, "If you want to get something done right, you have to do it yourself" adage.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has been a thorn in the side of Obama's reckless economic policies for a while now but they apparently crossed the line last week when CBO Chief Doug Elmendorf gave a resounding THUMBS DOWN to the Obama Health Care debacle.

In true Chicago-Way style, Obama allegedly attempted to bully Mr. Elmendorf into coming around to see "reason" by summoning him to the White House for some canoli. Fox News picked up the story. Check out the Video here. Doesn't this remind you of the Inspectors General scandals? Like the IG's, the CBO chief is SUPPOSED to report to Congress. Like the AmeriCorps IG Gerald Walpin, Obama appears to have thumbed his nose at the law.

Lastly, here are the applicable Alinsky rules Obama likely referred to in deciding to summon Elmendorf:

Rule 1: Power is not only what you have, but what an opponent thinks you have.

Rule 8: Keep the pressure on. Use different tactics and actions and use all events of the period for your purpose.

Rule 9: The threat is more terrifying than the thing itself.

Rule 11: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame.
