Yesterday, Obama called several shell-shocked liberals to the Slight House for a last ditch neck pinching and a final eye gouge or two. He was reported to be “pleading with them to put aside their qualms and vote for his massive health care overhaul.” What are mere “qualms” to the Ebony Eulogizer are known as matters of “political life or death” to those that he managed to assemble.. I will wager that he was bowing to beat the band as each of these shaky liberals entered the room..
In “Obama Pleads With Dems to Pass His Health Bill” (fox news dot com) we read that these liberals are “uneasy” and that Obama wants them to “focus on the positives rather than their deep disappointment with parts of his massive health care overhaul”.. “Parts”? The nation is a bit more than “disappointed” and these liberals skulking about with bulls eye’s on their backs are “disappointed” in the fact that Obama is more concerned with his own liberal legacy than he is with the collective futures of the collected collectivists.. “Focus on the positives” means that Obama refuses to listen to the overwhelming outcries of a nation that can no longer be cajoled or deluded by the Obama “focus on the positives”..
“Obama assured them the legislation was merely the first step and he promised to work with them in the future to improve its provisions.” Here Obama acknowledges that this ludicrous legislation is overwhelmingly more than imperfect, yet he demands that it be throttled on through anyway. This is the cornerstone of the Republican argument. There is too much WRONG with the legislation for it to be passed in such an underhanded manner. Obama REFUSES to “improve its provisions” BEFORE it has been turned into law, who in their right mind believes that he will work diligently to repair things AFTER it becomes law?
Obama said that this nonsense is “the opportunity of a generation, a chance to revive the party’s agenda..” It is apparent that Obama is still posing for his history book snapshots and “the party” is irrelevant to him, it is “his” (or should everyone say in unison, “His”..) agenda that he wants “revived”.. This ridiculous corpse cannot be “revived” in any way, shape or form.. Were they to try to do so, the liberals will have Joe Biden portraying Larry Wilson, Rahm Emanuel featured as Richard Parker and Obama Himself as Bernie Lomax as it seems that the liberals are casting for a new “Weekend at Bernie’s III”, much to the nation’s delight and the liberal’s dismay..
“Congressional leaders said that they were hoping for votes on the legislation in as soon as two or three weeks..” Why is that the timeframe from the liberal’s disjointed perspective? The answer is to be found within the fetid pages of the LA Times..
Here is the headline, “Obama looking to give new life to immigration reform”. Obama and his arrogant administration understand that they have all but lost millions of independents and those too easily confused from 2008. Now it is on to a NEW block of governmental addicts ripe for the picking, if you will..
Now Obama behind the scenes and out of the headlines reveals the true “Progressive Plan B” when the fascist fallout hits the fan. Obama feels that he is about to lose millions of his former friends and the duplicitously duped, what better way to make up the difference than with the eternally grateful eleven to twenty million or so ILLEGAL aliens!
“Obama took up the issue privately with his staff in a bid to advance a bill through Congress before lawmakers become too distracted by approaching midterm elections..” They are finally getting the message that the big “D” on the ballot in November means “Dead”. We have both a lame duck president AND Congress, so they had better get to the business of trying to completely destroy the United States.. This “distraction” is the liberals all clearing out their offices in Washington and yet another destructive Obama “bill” that needs to be rammed through “before it is too late”..
“Citizenship would not be granted lightly, the White House said. Undocumented workers would need to register, pay taxes and pay a penalty for violating the law..” Nonsense. The ILLEGALS will all get another of the Obama “sweetheart deals”, similar to the one that the liberals gave to the unions in order for them to “support” his health scare plan.. “Not be granted lightly”? This will undoubtedly be the mother of all ultimate ridiculous rubber stamp scenario as the bribes and payoffs for the ILLEGALS “coming clean” will top those given to Nelson, Landrieu and Lincoln.. I will wager that deep within the recesses of this “bill” there will be a proviso that demands that these “new Americans” be registered to vote on the spot..
Who is “responsible” for this ugly turn of events? Chuck Schumer (L-NY) and Lindsey Graham (Idiot-SC).. Obama managed to find a Republican willing to help him in his quest to keep the House and Senate in 2010. But why this “two or three weeks” timeframe for the health scare vote? Obama and friends don’t want to be behind the collectivist curve on this one as an “immigration” rally is set for March 21 in Washington, something that should “spotlight the issue and build needed momentum..” “Building momentum for whom” needs to be the question that the desperate liberal should be asking themselves..
Nick Shapiro, “White House spokesman” said that Obama’s support for an immigration bill is “unwavering”.. We’ve heard that one before and every time that we have, Obama’s polling numbers have dropped by another couple of points or so..
Again, Obama needs to choose between whom that it is that he is “angering”. “Obama risks angering a growing, politically potent Latino constituency if he defers the goal until 2011..” Does he “anger” the overwhelming number of those opposed to ILLEGLS being granted yet another amnesty or does he “anger” the ILLEGALS with their “chain migration” and their thousands of “anchor babies”? Decisions, decisions..
Schumer said, “It’s tough finding someone, we just need a second Republican..” Who else would like to join Graham Cracker and the rest of the Democrats getting their walking papers? Anyone? “There is a consensus that a proposal needs to move by April or early May to have a realistic chance of passing this year..” Let me add to the end of that last statement.. “..and the only chance that it will pass will be what was once a ‘seldom used’ vehicle known as reconciliation, a Democratic dodge that has taken the liberals by storm..” Oh well, back to the health scare “bill”..
“Republicans want to scrap the plan and start over..” The liberals “feel” that ANY bill is better than no bill. Obama even said that he will “work with them in the future to improve its provisions.” After it has “passed” and this disaster has become law, what will motivate Obama to “improve its provisions” and more importantly, WHEN would he consider doing so? I will wager that the answer to that query is NEVER. The process formerly known as “Democracy” involved the attempted “perfecting” of bills PRIOR to them becoming law..
Fox’s silly attempts at “impartiality” made this boner evident in the article, “Senate Democrats were left one vote shy of the margin they needed to bypass Republican stalling tactics..” Like “reconciliation”, the “filibuster” is part of the democratic process but the reality is that for eleven months, the liberals had a “filibuster-proof 60 seat supermajority” and they STILL couldn’t get this done..
As a humorous side bar, Kathleen “Sneezy” Sebelius met with insurance company executives “and asked them to provide justifications for double-digit price increases that have angered consumers..” Such sanctimony is hilarious as Sebelius’ anger mimics the TAXPAYERS who have asked the Obama administration “to provide justifications for double-digit TAX increases, unemployment rates and deficits that have angered voters..” Hopefully the insurance executives provided the same silence to the Obamzombies that they have provided to the middle class..
Democratic Representative Raul Grijalva said, “the president very pointedly talked about how important this is historically, this is an opportunity, it’ll give us momentum..” Momentum infers movement but it doesn’t infer direction.. The liberal’s “momentum” is quickly approaching “terminal velocity” despite their silly happy faces and their optimistic deflections of Bolshevik blather.. This IS an “opportunity”, one that the Republicans had better take full advantage of..
