Jed Babbin has the top story at Human Events today.

T.S. Eliot wrote that April is the cruelest month, because it mixes hope with desire. For Democrats, April was easy, washed away in the Obama spending tsunami.September will be the cruelest month for Democrats because their hope to pass Obamacare and cap-and-trade has run headlong into the opposition of their untrusting constituents.Just as they left for their summer vacation, House Democrats were given a strategy memo by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The strategy memo said, (as HUMAN EVENTS’ Connie Hair reported on August 3) “Winning the health reform debate in August requires nothing less than an aggressive, multi-front effort to control the message and keep the momentum moving forward.”
