In the long and honorable, if sometimes fractious, political history of this country, never have we seen such behavior as is being displayed by the so-called leadership of the once Democrat, now DeMarxist, and their man/boy zero sum President Barack Hussein Obama. Under the cover of dubious parliamentary procedure and what else?
IN SECRET, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are planning to try to meld the House and Senate versions of the health destruction bill in such a way as to cut the Republicans out of the process entirely and bypass problematic Democrats like Michigan Congressman Bart Stupak, who’s stated that he will do whatever he can to sink the final bill if it contains federal funding for abortions.
In addition, there are several Democrats whose support for the bill has been shaken by a strong dose of reality applied by their constituents during the holiday recess. Some might refer to it as a ROASTING. By way of example: Ben Nelson saw his popularity drop instantaneously with his cowardly rollover on the health care vote. Fifty five percent of his constituents would vote against him if his re-election were held now… a virtual death sentence to an incumbent. Sixty four percent of Nebraska’s voters want nothing to do with the Democratic health care debacle.
The Talking Points Memo website reported Monday that the Democrats in the House and Senate are saying the process will likely follow the path of the House taking up the Senate-passed legislation, amending it and sending it back to the Senate, which will have to pass it again. “This process cuts out the Republicans”, a house Democratic aide told Talking Points Memo, indicating the Congressional majority intended to make sure the Republican minority would “not have a motion to recommit opportunity”.
By blocking out the Republicans, to say nothing of the Democrats who disagree with them, they are setting a very dangerous course. One which may make the price of victory very expensive for the party come November 2010. With an increasingly angry electorate and an economy which has failed totally to respond to Obama’s pork-laden blandishments, America and Americans may put finish to the DeMarxists grand scheme. CONTINUE THE CONSERVATIVE MARCH TO VICTORY!!
Semper Vigilans, Semper Fidelis
