Dems: Obama Should Invoke the 14th Amendment Then Plead the 5th

Should Obama raise his hands in the air, close his eyes, and magically call upon the powers of the 14th Amendment? It might be the last chance for temporary financial peace. Says Assistant Minority Leader James Clyburn (D-S.C.):

I am convinced that whatever discussions about the legality of that can continue. But I believe that something like this will bring calm to the American people and will bring needed stability to our financial markets.

House Democratic Caucus Chairman John Larson (D-Conn.) also supported the invoking of the 14th:

We have to have a fail-safe mechanism. We believe that fail-safe mechanism is the 14th Amendment and the president of the United States.

My good friend and notable psychologist, Hubert Humdinger (pronounced hum – din – jur), had this to say about the prospect of Obama falling back on the 14th Amendment:

It’s good that Obama has a backup option so the global financial markets don’t sag beneath the weight of failed debt ceiling negotiations, but if Obama invokes the 14th Amendment, God can only save his soul from the rabid Republicans, and he’d better then plead the 5th.
