Obama can’t stop whining about powerless GOP minority’s opposition to ObamaCare

posted at 7:10 pm on August 20, 2009 by Allahpundit

Sometimes I think The One secretly wants a Republican wave next year. If his agenda’s going to go down in flames, it’d help his reelection bid a bunch to have a strong GOP obstacle to blame for its failure. As it is, he’s reduced to pathetic spin like this to complement the demagoguery about un-American brownshirted evil-mongers oozing out of the Democratic leadership. Scapegoat politics, Alinsky-style:

While continuing to argue he wants a bipartisan bill, President Obama today for first time publicly blamed Congressional Republican leaders for seeing health care reform in only political terms. And for the first time he acknowledged Democrats might go it alone.

Before a crowd of loyal Democrats this afternoon, President Obama said his party would pass health care reform with or without Republicans…

Earlier, in a radio interview, the President for the first time publicly accused Republican leaders of trying to kill health care reform for political reasons

“I think early on, a decision was made by the Republican leadership that said, ‘Look, let’s not give them a victory. maybe we can have a replay of 1993-94 when Clinton came in. He failed on health care and the we won on the midterm elections. and we got the majority.’ And I think there are some folks who are taking a page out of that playbook.”

Bear in mind, all this sturm und drang is over a handful of GOP votes. If they water down the bill until it’s soaking wet, maybe they get Grassley, the wonder twins from Maine, and one or two others to vote for it. That’s what constitutes bipartisan cover to the Obama spin machine. Only one problem: The more they water it down, the more likely it is that House progressives will walk away and the bill will stall. In fact, no less than Pelosi herself threatened House Blue Dogs, Senate Democrats, and The One today by warning that without a public option, ObamaCare ain’t going anywhere. If that’s true then it’s probably impossible to win Republican votes for it; given the growing public opposition to the bill, even Snowe and Collins may decide that they simply can’t sign off on a government alternative — which leaves Obama in a thoroughly wee-wee’d situation, to paraphrase the great orator of our age. To see how he ended up there, read this excellent, withering Jay Cost post about Team Barry’s inexplicable inability to predict the split between centrist Dems and liberals. It is indeed amateur hour at the White House.

I disagree with the notion that BO wants a republican wave. He would be happy to exploit it if it happens, but I think he’d rather have free reign to remake mankind and the world in his image.

Very unlike the purly political opposition to everything Bush ever did. Who’s playbook are they taking a page from now???

Obama is still a Democrat. The House has a large Democrat majority. The Senate has 60 stinking Democrats.

The best things to happen from Bama’s election, the only positives, are the outing of the radical marxists in Congress and elsewhere, and his signal failure to live up to the hype that he is intelligent, transparent and a change in DC culture.

Loxodonta on August 20, 2009 at 7:28 PM

If they insist on a public option, the democrats won’t even be able to pass it.

The public option is a liability that our government doesn’t have currently. You know, the government we have that is spending 1.5T more this year than we brought in?

The public option might not be mandatory to be on it, but as soon as one person is on it, the taxpayer is liable to pay for their care. It is a recipe for disaster.

One question for Pelosi. . . How does a public option keep Medicare from going broke?

Typhoon on August 20, 2009 at 7:22 PM

Damn skippy I remember it, and I also remember that SOB Mitchell bottling up Bush’s capital gains tax cut, which would have extended the economic expansion and probably assured Bush a second term. Instead, he forced Bush into accepting a tax increase, and the Republican base abandoned him while the economy stalled.

But that wasn’t about politics at all! And I sure don’t remember the “small state Senators are holding back progress for the nation” argument when George Mitchell from MAINE was doing the throttling of Bush’s domestic agenda!

GarandFan on August 20, 2009 at 7:33 PM

I call on Republicans in the House to get creative, grow a spine and issue a new version of the Contract With America.

Phase 1 is for the 2010 election. they should pledge the following in exchange for obtaining control of the house again.
1) An immediate end to Obama’s socialization plans for America.
2) A pledge to stop cold in it’s tracks whatever programs Obama is able to ram rod through congress. example health care reform. If possible they should pledge to stall, defund, and otherwise block implentation of this debacle. Same goes for cap and trade or whatever other scheme they should pass.

Phase 2 is for 2012, they should pledge, all candidates, that if elected to the presidency to roll back, and rescind any public option or government takeover of health care that passes, and in it’s place leave a sensible freemarket reform.

People need to hear this NOW. they will be receptive to it. They need something to hold on to in order to have hope for the future.

Republicans need to tell america that its only one more year to before there is a chance to halt this nonsense, and three short years before we can actually begin the task of undoing the damge before it has fully destroyed the country.

Let’s ROLL!

What Obama and his liberal friends have yet to figure out, (or continue to ignore), is it’s not just the GOP that is in total opposition to this financial debacle—it’s over 70% of the country. Let these idiots go ahead and “nuke” this thing into law. We’ll have them out of power and this legislation will be revoked the day after these socialist are sent packing.

Obama never had any skills, so I don’t blame him for any of this. I knew he would never be more than a figurehead and speech-giver in this four years. This is all on Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod. Ostensibly, Obama chose the “seasoned pol” Emanuel precisely to avoid this sort of amateurish political debacle, and brought in Axelrod the master message man to handle the messaging. That’s what we were all told, anyway. He’s also got Pete Rouse there in the White House, who was known as the 51st Senator when he worked for Tom Daschle.

And all of these great experienced people have been undone by a handful of average Americans showing up for Congressional townhalls, and a couple of TV and radio commentators who refused to bow to The Great And Powerful Oz-bama.

It’s really amazing.

rockmom on August 20, 2009 at 7:39 PM

Republicans have to start talking about how much of a blithering idiot The Precedent is – and I am saying that they should literally use that phrase (among others). The time for treating this affirmative action moron as if he were qualified to do anything is long past. They need to make it clear that The Precedent is an actual moron. They should mention his idiotic statements and say things such as,

“We are not about to be lectured by a blithering idiot who thinks that there are such things as ‘profit and earnings ratios’. I don’t know how such an unmitigated fool got into Columbia or Harvard, but it’s clear that it was not because of his brain – because he is as stupid a person as has ever shown up in politics.”

To treat the slug in the White House with any respect (which he doesn’t deserve) is to throw the game and surrender this great nation to an idiot. It’s time that the public discussion turned to how unbelievably stupid The Precedent is.

Millions, full of hope, look up to Barack Obama
The day breaks for Hope and Change

For the last time the call will now be blown
For the struggle now we all stand ready
Soon we will control everyone on every street
Opposition will last only a short time longe.

Heads high, ranks closed
Loyal Democrats march with silent solid steps
Supporters accosted by the red front reaction
March in spirit with us in our ranks

which leaves Obama in a thoroughly wee-wee’d situation, to paraphrase the great orator of our age

Now that you mention it–was circumcision covered by Oh’s health plan? With all the Dem’s “skin in the game” they’ll be needing coverage if they pass this thing!

the bama says he’s gonna wee-wee his pants if we do not give him his way – dont’cha know his wants are more important than our 300 million??

I wouldn’t buy anything from the House GOP unless the first thing on their list was a Constitutional Amendment term limiting the legislative branch to two terms in the Senate and 8 years in the House, same as the President. Neither party can resist the temptations of power.

I’m pretty certain that was tried and struck down as unconstitutional. Still, a push for a new constitutional amendment would not go amiss.

Blah! Skimming too fast again. Sorry.

Browncoatone on August 20, 2009 at 7:47 PM

Are you hinting that we exile Obama to France?

Sure they’d be happy, he’d be happy, we’d be happy. Its closer than sending him to Kenya. Works well for everyone.

I can feel it coming, Gang. The First Presidential Temper Tantrum (TM) will happen soon.

kingsjester on August 20, 2009 at 7:25 PM

A wee-wee tantrum.

Hey, Obama: “You won.”

Deal with it, you POS.

BuckeyeSam on August 20, 2009 at 7:49 PM

Ah-oh.

He has gone from Health Care Reform, to Health Insurance Reform, to Health Care Reform.

Kinda like, She’s gone from Suck to Blow!

Look, it’s a comment board. A venting forum. We do not need moral police or language czars.

Obama is an idiot. He’s an idiot for thinking he could come from nowhere and change 233 years of history, blood, sweat, sacrifice and liberty without 10′s of millions of people rising up and saying No.Freakin. Way.

He’s cunning, he’s diabolical, he’s sociopathic and yes, he’s an idiot.
Look up the word and you’ll understand. It’s not what you think.
