Senate Democrats Drink More Kool-Aid

Pages: 1 2

So it now must be with the Nelsons, Tester, Webb, Manchin and Casey. American Crossroads, Americans for Prosperity and Sixty Plus — the trio whose aggressive attacks led directly to the 2010 victories — must get on the air and inform voters of their senators’ refusal to repeal this law.

When President Obama told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly that the public was “about evenly divided” on his health care plan, he was applying the same inability to count that characterizes his deficit-reduction programs. Rasmussen Reports shows a 55-40 margin for repeal — hardly a break-even scenario.

And with the courts finding that the law is unconstitutional, the public dissatisfaction with this law will grow.

And the Obamacare repeal vote was only the first of many planks the moderate Democrats will have to walk en route to losing their seats in 2012. They will have to vote against Republican budget cuts, against efforts to block the EPA from imposing a carbon tax, against restrictions on the FCC’s ability to regulate the Internet and cripple talk radio. All of these votes are piling up in the House, waiting to make their way to the Senate floor.

Obama told O’Reilly he “did not want to re-fight the battles” of 2009 and 2010. But that is precisely what the House Republicans are going to make him do. And the same votes that led to the defeat or resignation under threat of defeat of Chris Dodd, Arlen Specter, Byron Dorgan, Kent Conrad, Evan Bayh and Russ Feingold will now spell doom for a new generation of senators. All thanks to Obama’s and Reid’s doctrinaire and obstinate refusal to act to protect their senators.

The slogan of the Obama Democrats might as well be the same as that for the old leftists of the British Labor Party: “No compromise with the electorate!”

    Testifying today before the House Budget Committee, Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Director Doug Elmendorf confirmed that Obamacare is expected to reduce the number of jobs in the labor market by an estimated 800,000. In addition, despite the fact all of these wienies took an oath to support the Constitution, they ignor that the federal court in the massive 26-state challenge to ObamaCare held that the health care law's individual mandate is unconstitutional. And, even more importantly, the judge accepted the argument that the mandate cannot be separated from the rest of this 2,700-page legislative monstrosity, and struck down the entire law declaratively.

    There are no moderate Democrats and definitely no DINOs. They only campaign to the center but once safely elected always fall in line like trained seals and vote far left.

    Democrats are not the only ones drinking Kool Aid…..Republicans who think Ron Paul is a viable candidate are also imbibing. Ron Paul will not even get as many votes as McCain did in 2008. Republicans should consider Donald Trump. He's a winner, he's a bottom line guy….he's an executive. His show The Apprentice was very popular. He's the man for the job.

      Trump could never be elected. He's too rich – the average
      american wouldn't vote for him. He's also too Hollywood.

      John Bolton, in my not so humble opinion, would make a great president.

        John Bolton would make a good Sec. of State. Trump is not too rich….that's nonsense. The average American would vote for someone with sound economic ideas: jobs, manufacturing, progress and production…something Mr. Trump understands. Americans love success…..that's what most folks strive for in their lives…….Trillion dollar deficits, ten percent unemployment , soaring foreign debt and dependence upon China and other countries for ALL of our domestic goods ain't cuttin it. I think Mr. Trump or someone like him would make a great leader for our nation.

        "President John Bolton"? That's almost as simultaneously hilarious and horrifying as the idea of a McCain/Palin regime.

        Bolton is lucky, like all politicians in the United States, that TV interviewers are so deferential, even cringingly so. But in Britain, it's another matter: Crazy John has repeatedly been shown up on British television as incompetent and easily flustered.

        Here he is being humiliated on the BBC by the aging British politician Tony Benn…

    Dick Morris? Can anyone recall why this guy was expelled from the Clinton administration?
