Blanche Lincoln to Obama: When are we going to push back against the left?

posted at 7:46 pm on February 3, 2010 by Allahpundit

This is like asking Ron Paul when he’s going to “push back” against Truthers. I’m torn between applauding her for putting The One on the spot, laughing at such a shameless attempt to burnish her centrist credentials ahead of November, and sneering that the best way to push back against the left would have been to, um, vote no on ObamaCare. Doesn’t matter, though. Enjoy your last day as the 60th vote, Blanche; Brownmania officially begins tomorrow.

Exit question: By helping get to 60, Lincoln at least made it easier for other Democrats around the country to get elected this year, right? Wrong. Click the image to watch.

Those that lay down with filthy dogs (Obama, Emmanuel, Axelrod) get fleas.

The comedy quotient is off the charts.

Come election time, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear Blanche and some of her endangered Dem colleagues invite Obama to a Tea Party.

Blanche Flinche deserves no applause for this self serving act of desperation.

It’s as transparent as an ice cube.

Well, I’m glad to see, after about 8 or 9 grim months of ‘glorious march of socialism’, we’re passed into the ‘comedic scramble for the life boats’phase.

This should be one of the more interesting November’s in my lifetime.

One way or another.

Ditch the smoke gun and get a fly swatter. More appropriate for buzzing pests. Hornets just need an extra-strong swing.

More often than not I don’t agree with a single word AnnaC has to say on most subjects…..BUT Anna says her piece, makes no apologies, and most importantly, does not trash anyone simply because he/she disagrees with her viewpoint.

Allowing AnnaC her say is what separates this blog-site from Daily Kos. To post on Kos, you have to agree and conform to Marcos’ viewpoint – otherwise your comment is deleted.

Consequently, while we may not agree with AnnaC, I would suggest we at least respect her for the unfailingly courteous fashion in which she tries to make her point. If we are confident in our position, then we should be prepared to welcome all comers who wish to express a different opinion. Thank God this is not DailyKos or Democratic Underground

Lately, the objections have focused on the sheer frequency of posting, some lies in which she has been caught, and some rather ill-tempered comments about Alzheimers.

Contrast with a poster like Ernesto, with whom many disageee, but who always brings his “A game,” and a willingness to openly debate an issue.

joeindc44 on February 3, 2010 at 11:00 PM

Blanche.
I wonder how her parents came up with that name.
Reminds me of this exchange from “Top Secret“:

Nick Rivers: I’m pleased to meet you. My name’s Nick.
Hillary Flammond: Nick? What does that mean?
Nick Rivers: Oh, nothing. My dad thought of it while he was shaving.

No later than November when Arkansas voters help you spend more time with your family.

TBenton on February 4, 2010 at 12:14 AM

“We” have been pushing back against the left Senator. You haven’t. Party loyalty was more important than country. So now you get what you deserve for putting party ahead of country.

I just wonder what these corrupt Senators have been doing behind closed doors while they stall putting Brown in. They must have done something nefarious or they would just have sworn him in right away.

Scrutinize everything done between Jan. 19 and when ever he actually gets sworn in.

There is something bad hidden I can feel it. There’s a reason to drag their feet. What is it?

petunia on February 4, 2010 at 1:41 AM

Honey, you are the left!

kens on February 4, 2010 at 8:36 AM

Isn’t asking Obama to push back against the extremists in the Democratic party kind of like asking Osama to push back against the extremists in Al Qaeda? Hello. They are the leaders of their respective extremists.

(for those of you who can’t see past your own eyelashes, I was not comparing Blanche to Adolf. I was comparing the vapid pointlessness of the two statements, OK?)

Extrafishy on February 4, 2010 at 9:13 AM

Blanche has been a big disappointment this last year. I’ve always liked her, and I’ve voted for her before, but as maddening as her votes have been, my biggest problem with her is how she’s either become tone deaf to her constituency, or just unwilling to listen. I don’t care what your politics are; you can’t elect people like that. I can’t believe she didn’t know before she cast that cloture vote how overwhelmingly unpopular ObamaCare is here — in a state with 19% uninsured, BTW. It’s still opposed by a margin of 2 to 1. I know I’ve told her how I feel. Others have as well, and there were repeated requests over the summer for her to meet with us in a town hall and it never happened.

Anyway, that’s why I’m not going to vote for her, and I am sorry for that because until Obama’s goons got their claws into her, I feel like she represented Arkansas pretty well.

Suffice it to say that about all I can do is sit back and watch the coming tranwreck. 2012 is likely going to be like 2008: no matter WHO wins, we’re hosed.
