Quotes of the day

As Democrats brace for a November wave that threatens their control of the House, party leaders are preparing a brutal triage of their own members in hopes of saving enough seats to keep a slim grip on the majority.

In the next two weeks, Democratic leaders will review new polls and other data that show whether vulnerable incumbents have a path to victory. If not, the party is poised to redirect money to concentrate on trying to protect up to two dozen lawmakers who appear to be in the strongest position to fend off their challengers…

To hold the line against Republicans, the House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, issued an urgent plea for members in safe districts to help their endangered colleagues by contributing money. She called out Democrats who were delinquent on paying their party dues and instructed members with no re-election worries to tap into a combined $218 million from their campaign accounts to help save their majority.

***
At least five of the 34 House Democrats who voted against their party’s health care reform bill are highlighting their “no” votes in ads back home. By contrast, party officials in Washington can’t identify a single House member who’s running an ad boasting of a “yes” vote — despite the fact that 219 House Democrats voted in favor of final passage in March…

It’s a far cry from where Democrats hoped they would be when they passed the landmark legislation in March. Many senior Democrats said last winter that the law’s popularity would increase as Americans were able to better understand the complex law and take advantage of its benefits.

But the public’s views on the legislation may have been more settled than anyone thought.

***
Bill Clinton strongly endorsed “independent” Staten Island Democrat Rep. Mike McMahon’s re-election bid yesterday — even saying it was OK for the incumbent to buck President Obama by voting against health-care reform.

“The one thing you got to say about this guy is he has been truly independent; he is not partisan,” Clinton said while stumping for McMahon at Wagner College.

“He has not voted for the president on every issue. On health care, for example, we New Yorkers have a special problem. We have a lot of immigrants here who are undocumented, and our hospitals claim real problems under this health-care bill,” Clinton added.

***
“They get it. There’s panic. There’s concern,” VandeHei said. “The reality for this administration stinks, politically and practically, when it comes to the economy. You’re not going to be able to change that 9.6-percent unemployment figure. You can’t get anything from Congress in the next couple of months.”…

Smith asked his guests to try to identify the source of the discontent: “From your experience on the Hill, have you heard any Democrats in private conversations say, ‘You know what? We went down the wrong road. We went after health care. We went after so many other things on the Obama agenda as opposed to, in the end of the day, it’s all about creating jobs?’”

“Not only have we heard that, but we’ve been hearing it for months,” said Cordes. “We heard it during the health care debate that dragged on for a year when the economy was so bad; they focused on health care and they focused on financial regulation.

Are you kidding? The very first thing they did was shove the “stimulus” down our throats, which was going to bring Utopia.

So it’s a death panel.

See how easily these people instinctively solve problems by separating those who live from those who should die?

Sometimes I think the democrat party is being taken down from the inside. This is just too skillful, almost a professional job.

So did some of our (now strangely absent) lefty commenters here. Where ya at, crr6?

We heard it during the health care debate that dragged on for a year when the economy was so bad; they focused on health care and they focused on financial regulation.

Because at the end of the day the marxists understood what was important. Sadly the GOp leadership still doesn’t get it and instead of running on repeal they are prepared to accept bopth major bills that seek to destroy the entire idea about this country.

In the end the marxist leaders will be seen as correct because of the spinelessness of their enemies.

party leaders are preparing a brutal triage of their own members in hopes of saving enough seats to keep a slim grip on the majority.

Triage is supposed to be a merciful exercise designed to save those that are most likely to survive and not commit resources to those who do not. These Democrats have been treated like cannon fodder—told to run through the gap, vote for this crapola legislation, and now are going to be left to die on the battlefield. WE SAW THIS COMING… we knew it would happen.

So, freshmen Dems…those that are now “expectant” or unlikely to make it this year, how does it feel to be treated like a flophouse pair of bedsheets. Wham bam thank you ma’am…next Democrat.

was it worth it fellas? your careers are over.

ted c on September 5, 2010 at 9:40 PM

You’d think the party elders would swoop in to save the self-destructing democrat party.

But consider who the party elders are:

Jimmy Carter
Al Gore
John Edwards
Bill Clinton

Now do you see why it might be better to let the once-great democrat party wither on the vine?

You know who hasn’t heard it? THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVEN’T. If this is true, then the Democrats in Congress who IN PRIVATE agreed that we should’ve KILLED THE BILL, then sat on their hands at least until they counted the “yays” and then they raised them. They deserve to be cast to the dustbin of history those yellow, cowardly, unAmerican and spineless people.

Obama is going to put out some economic plan this Wednesday… he’s finally focusing on the economy after all the diddling he’s done on ObamaCare, Middle East peace, etc, etc etc…

The GOP can not let him get away with this… someone needs to run a lot of ads within the next two weeks… and I better hear “never let a crisis go to waste”…

ninjapirate on September 5, 2010 at 9:44 PM

The first one of these people that gets voted out that thinks that they are going to get a job administering, lobbying for or working within the machinations of this obamacare thing is sorely mistaken because they are going to be watched like a fricking hawk.

What a freaking nightmare.

Can someone tell me what the hell we are going to do now, even if we get majorities in both houses and cut taxes? Is it too late to save the economy at this point? Should I just expect that an entire generation of young Americans are going to be jobless for the next 10 years???

CambellBrown on September 5, 2010 at 9:50 PM

Make no mistake…

Inanemergencydial on September 5, 2010 at 9:50 PM

So, the Democrats are so focused on healthcare outcomes, right. On November 3rd, we’ll see the outcomes of their triage as a metaphor for how Obamacare will work. If they can’t save themselves, how in the hell will they be able to save anyone else?

competency.

The Dems have dues, not voluntary contributions? Oh well, maybe they’re all tapped out after paying their union dues. But ‘calling them out’ will no doubt work wonders in reinvigorating the base. You go Nancy!

John the Libertarian on September 5, 2010 at 9:59 PM

The left is the party that for years has pushed a fast food mentality to fixing problems, claiming that action needs to be taken quickly to resolve issues. Now, however, Kaine and Plouffe were on the talk shows today claiming that fixes take time.

America isn’t listening to the rhetoric any longer. America is doing what is in its best interest, but the left isn’t part of that solution.

At least five of the 34 House Democrats who voted against their party’s health care reform bill are highlighting their “no” votes in ads back home.

And this is precisely why those Dems were allowed to vote NO. Glenn Nye (VA-2) aired an ad. If I didn’t know the truth about him I’d say he sounds like a fiscal conservative hawk based on the ad. Fiscal responsibility and anti-Obamacare are all the rage with Blue Dog Dems in 2010.

They gave it their best shot.
At least it isn’t 10%.

Git yourself a nice “House of Representatives” lil’ tin cup from the gift store near the Visitor’s Center. Then, drop a dime or a nickel in there and get used to the sound because you are going to hope you hear it a lot more often in the coming months.

Two news items, separated by just under a year.

September 9, 2009:

In an extraordinary breach of congressional decorum, a Republican lawmaker shouted “You lie” at President Barack Obama during his speech to Congress Wednesday. The incident came directly after Obama said, “There are also those who claim that our reform effort will insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false. The reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally.”"You lie!” Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., shouted from his seat on the Republican side of the chamber.(FoxNews.com)

September 4, 2010:

On health care, for example, we New Yorkers have a special problem. We have a lot of immigrants here who are undocumented, and our hospitals claim real problems under this health-care bill,” Clinton added.

Long version:

Sorry, Democrats, but you were the ones who unilaterally crammed that 1,000-page manure sandwich down our throats, not knowing what was in the damn bill and knowing full well that the American people didn’t want it passed. You own it, and your Republican opponents are going to remind your constituents of that simple fa…ct at every available opportunity. See you in November.

Short version:

Own it, f*****s.

DO NOT go to the polls alone only counting for ONE vote. Take a formerly disinterested or converted Dem with you. Carry voter registrations and absentee ballot requests with you in your car and register those that will go and order absentee ballots for those who can’t or won’t.
In short make your ONE vote count for 3-5 and bury the curroptocrats now!

They seek to end freedom as we know it and make us beholden to Gov’t. There are no Blue Dogs only liars and Demrat handmaidens, VOTE EM OUT! NOW!

dhunter on September 5, 2010 at 10:44 PM

Leftism is a lie and Leftists are liars. They have no other way of being or acting.

Lies got them into this fix, and they only way out is more lies. Quite literally — they cannot imagine any form of political existence other than one based on lies.

They lied that healthcare had anything to do with the economy or jobs. Socialized medicine was a leftist prize for 100 years and Obama knew he had to get it fast no matter the cost, because he had to get it before enough people figured out his lies. He blew past the deadline and almost lost it, and only did get it finally by pouring on lies over lies and forcing it down our gagging throats through legislative coercion and perversion.

Now they’re stuck, and because they’re liars to the bone and have no other way of being or acting, they must lie to try to escape the awful collision with truth and consequence coming in November. So you’ll hear every lie and slander you ever heard before but 100 times a day now and amped up to an impossible and shameless pitch you never thought possible.

The lies have a chance of working. “Working” would mean they scare moderates and independents enough to stop the bleeding and only lose 30-40 seats in the House and less than 7 or so senators. If they do this, they’ll be emboldened like never before and this country may never recover.

The GOP better get into gear and start listing and refuting the lies and attacking the lying nature of the Left and its tactics of lies. This is of course something that should have started years ago, but the GOP is pathetic and we know that.

Who saw the link on Drudge that Soros is basically out in the open now saying he’s going to bankroll, with the aide of ThinkProgress, HuffPoop, the MSM and MSNBC and the usual suspects – the demise of “The Tea Party”? A little late – about half a dozen elections and 8 or 10 months too late.

DO NOT go to the polls alone only counting for ONE vote. Take a formerly disinterested or converted Dem with you.

dhunter on September 5, 2010 at 10:44 PM

Yeah! That would be my wife. She voted for Him and I had to nullify her vote. Now she has seen the light after 18 months.

I worry it could be a fleeting victory. Republicans won’t be able to repeal much because Obama will veto the repealing legislation and we won’t have the 2/3 in both House and Senate to override. The most we can do is de-fund them, but with ObamaCare there aren’t any benefits to pay for the first four years, just taxes being collected. Then Obama will blame the Republicans for blocking his recovery plans and win back the slower thinkers among independents.

Democrats have seeded their future through forty years of effective federal control of public education. They have turned out an electorate uneducated in American history, law, culture, and economics and unable to think critically. With so many dummies out there, the Democrats keep coming back from the dead even when America rejects their policies clearly.

We need to stuff their mouth with garlic, drive a wooden stake through their heart, and burn the carcass to fine ash.

Well, it is sad to say that while money cannot buy you love, it does seem able to buy you votes.

I suspect the Republicans will be able to raise a lot even if the RNC is a lost cause, but it would be nice to have someone other than Captain Shazam in charge over there.

I don’t need to see another add of any kind and I don’t think most people do. This year I don’t really think money is the answer because most people expect that the 800 billion went in the buying the next election. I will walk 20 miles over broken glass to vote against any Democrat and I don’t care who the other person is or what thier party is as long as it isn’t a Democrat.

That would have been 14 seats if the GOP had any brain cells to field good candidates in NY.

In the practical art of politics, democrats must be prepared for the people catching on to them at any time in the future. In the impractical art of politics, democrats should have been prepared for this quite some time ago, and it’s probably already too late. They’re screwed.

Cheshire Cat on September 5, 2010 at 11:11 PM

Wasn’t me I didn’t do it nobody saw me you can’t say it was me I didn’t vote for Obamacare and there’s no D after my name. The Dems bankrupted America and then sang this song:

The Dems stole the cookies from the cookie jar. Who me? Not me. Couldn’t be. Not D. Then who? Bastards.

I think to a certain degree that is true. Money does make a difference, but the tide is too heavy for it to swing enough races to save them. Most people don’t keep track of things the way most people on blogs like this do.

Smith asked his guests to try to identify the source of the discontent: “From your experience on the Hill, have you heard any Democrats in private conversations say, ‘You know what? We went down the wrong road. We went after health care. We went after so many other things on the Obama agenda as opposed to, in the end of the day, it’s all about creating jobs?’”

“Not only have we heard that, but we’ve been hearing it for months,” said Cordes. “We heard it during the health care debate that dragged on for a year when the economy was so bad; they focused on health care and they focused on financial regulation.

Three words..Taste the nightstick.

Are politicians so out of touch that they cant understand that us citizens don’t want government involved in our daily lives?

There is no way in heck that Brown should have won in MA unless the government was so out of touch.

Think Calvin Coolidge. If we could get the same thing done it would launch the economy into the stratosphere.

Build a democrat a fire on November 2 and he will be warm for the night, set a democrat on fire, and he will be warm for the rest of his life.
