My friends, before the Massachusetts vote, State-Controlled Media reported that if Scott Brown won, President Obama would “double down” on the health care takeover;ram it through there. Well, theDemocrats were onboard with that, too. Now, after the political tsunami struck,the Democrats are in total disarray.
Barney Frank, whose district voted for Brown, at first bent over backwards, announcing that “respect for democratic procedures must rule out any effort to pass a health care bill as if the Massachusetts election had not happened.” A day later, though,he bent over forwards, apologizing for his first remarks and signing onto Democrats’ “Plan B.” This would force House members to vote for the Senate bill unchanged, then send it over to Obama. But Nancy Pelosi says she doesn’t have the votes for “Plan B,”so Barney and his “ram-it-through” (ahem) Democrats are totally screwed. (Ahem. Not a pretty sight, either.)
Meanwhile, in an ABC interview, Obama called for a scaled-down bill, containing “those elements of the package people can agree on.” Then White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer was sent out with a correction, explaining that Obama “would prefer Congress to pass the comprehensive package” after all, and “hasn’t given up on that option.”
I mean, all of this is delicious! Total chaos, the perfect storm,and abject failure –and you Democrats have only yourselves to blame for this. You refused to listen at town halls, you ignored the polls, and you demonized everyone who tried to warn you off. And now you want agreement? Well, fine. Let’s agree on this:You blew it. Nowyou’re going to pay. And you are going to paydearly in November. You have noooo idea.
