The news surrounding the Obama health scare “summit” isn’t all that promising for the liberals which means that it is very promising for the tax paying victims of yet another of the endless Obama wealth redistribution plans.. In what appears to be a rare “bipartisan” agreement, both sides feel that “Obama’s much touted televised summit has virtually no chance of breaking the political logjam.” Therefore, it is full steam ahead as Obama wants nothing more than to save either one of his two faces..
In “Dems, GOP: Summit will not break logjam on health”, (apnews myway) we read that the “Democrats will be forced to find a way to pass an overhaul on their own or face a huge political defeat..” If the Democrats “pass an overhaul” through chicanery or otherwise, they will be resoundingly defeated in November at the mid term election. Those fighting for their seats understand this and they have been trying to subtly remind Obama of this fact for quite some time. The REAL problem lies (literally..) with the ego of their Dear Leader because the “huge political defeat” actually belongs to “Mr. Oh-for-Five” but he would prefer to see hundreds of his fellow travelers thrown out of office rather than to admit that he was even for one moment WRONG. I for one am glad to see that he steadfastly refuses to take the medicines prescribed to him which will overcome his megalomania..
The bipartisan feeling of the Obama freak show still continues to warm the hearts of those forced to participate. “Lawmakers from both parties suggested the Obama hosted meeting Thursday will amount to little more than political theater..” ANYTHING “hosted” by Obama is “political theater” and this one will rate with some of the best slap stick comedy ever. Obama still believes that if he wills it, it should be done, no questions asked. Not only is he psychotically dominated by the gravitational pull of his own self-admiration, he is completely unconcerned with the collateral damage and the aftershocks that will effect those around him..
Republican Mitch McConnell said, “We’re happy to be there, but I’m not quite sure what the purpose is..” The purpose is for Illinois’ Othello to perform another socialist soliloquy intended to show the liberal base that he is true to his “word” regardless whether the overwhelming majority of those who will be economically penalized because of will be burning liberal effigies at the polls come November. There is something much bigger at stake, Obama’s ego and that is what the purpose is..
Obama wants Republicans there so that he can shrug off their logical disagreement as “acrimony” or “partisan lock-step politics”. Incumbent Democrats want them there as well and this is the only nod toward these Democrats who are eyeballing their certain failure in November that Obama is willing to make. Obama refuses to concede the overwhelming reality that there are more Democrats who are against this totalitarian time bomb than there are Republicans. Why didn’t Obama “broadcast” his meetings with the liberals when he was twisting their thumbs relative to this Bolshevik baloney? He is simply looking for a receptacle to make responsible for the bill’s inevitable demise and the “acrimonious” Republicans have decided to play along. Obama is insisting upon jumping out of the airplane naked and the Republicans want to throw him a parachute..
Obama is too oblivious to realize that if his “bill” were such an amazing piece of legislation, he and his acolytes wouldn’t have had to BRIBE each other publicly in order for it to become law when they were sitting on a “supermajority”. Even with those embarrassing blackmailers giggling to the press about their loot they STILL couldn’t get this nonsense passed. Must have been George Bush’s fault..
The last remaining card up the liberal sleeve is “reconciliation” where a simple majority could pass the legislation. The IED within that plan is it would force the liberals to swallow elements of the “reconciled” bill that will prove problematic when the voters call them onto the carpet for having voted for such heresy. Abortion funding, coverage for illegals, targeting Medicare, a guaranteed budget buster and the dropping of the “public option”.. What liberal wouldn’t want to proudly sign on to such career arsenic?
The obfuscation is already filling the air as Joe Liberman said that “the health care legislation’s prognosis is ‘unclear but clearly heading toward reconciliation’”.. What is “unclear” becomes “clear” two words later.. Thus the magic of liberal politics. What is clear is that Obama believes that this legislation secures his legacy in the history books. It certainly will, but it is not the kind of “legacy” that any sane individual would aspire to..
Listen to Bart Stupak, (L-MI) “While the president has laid out a health care proposal that brings us closer to resolving our differences, there is still work to be done before Congress can pass comprehensive health care reform..” That is how a liberal tells Obama “no”.. Thirty-three words when one would suffice.. It doesn’t matter Bart, Obama isn’t listening..
“Three dozen lawmakers, plus several administration officials, will sit at a hollow square table with name placards..” As far as furniture analogies goes, using a “hollow table” where Obama will be sitting at the head is without flaw.. Kathleen “Sneezy” Sebelius “will lead talks on insurance reform” in between rounds of teaching everyone present how to properly sneeze in public.. Even though this is a “health care” meeting, “Joe Biden will head a discussion on deficit reduction..” Biden will probably be more interested in discussing the merits of the screw-off cap versus the cork..
Obama’s “toughest chore” seems to be persuading “wavering Democratic lawmakers” if this is to become law. I will wager that those who are “wavering” are the ones who are up for re-election and the last thing that they need is this Obama autographed albatross hanging around their necks. The country has stood up to Obama and said “no”, now would be as good a time as any for the liberals to do so as well..
So Obama wants a platform to harangue and to pontificate from so that he can mug for the cameras when his “transparency” relative to all of this prior to this last ditch effort consisted of one hour’s worth of coverage.. His fellow liberals all wish that he would find another of his hundreds of “number one priorities” to focus upon, one that wouldn’t be guaranteed to put them in the unemployment line with the rest of America’s middle class.. The charade of inviting Republicans aside, Obama needs some of that “lock-step partisanship” from his Party members and he seems to be intent upon forcing this salmonella Socialist meal down their throats.. It’s time for a little collectivist constipation..
