America has just witnessed an unconscionable abuse of power. President Obama has betrayed his oath to the nation rather than bringing us together, ushering in a new kind of politics, and rising above raw partisanship, he has succumbed to the lowest denominator of incumbent power: justifying the means by extolling the ends. He promised better; we deserved better.
He calls his accomplishment historic in this he is correct, although not for the reason he intends. Rather, it is an historic usurpation of the legislative process he unleashed the nuclear option, enlisted not a single Republican vote in either chamber, bribed reluctant members of his own party, paid-off his union backers, scapegoated insurers, and justified his act with patently fraudulent accounting. What Barack Obama has ushered into the American political landscape is not good for our country; in the words of an ancient maxim, what starts twisted, ends twisted.
His health-care bill is unhealthy for America. It raises taxes, slashes the more private side of Medicare, installs price controls, and puts a new federal bureaucracy in charge of health care. It will create a new entitlement even as the ones we already have are bankrupt. For these reasons and more, the act should be repealed. That campaign begins today.
There are very few who are willing to stand and call Obama, Pelosi, Reed, and the others the traitors and quislings that they are...and stand on the rooftops and warn the people about the consequences of continuing down this path.
Couldn’t agree with you more - this is one area where he might as well wear an H for hypocrite on his forhead while he talks about it.
>.the financial course we are on is guaranteed to bankrupt America Inc.
Tacking into the financial windward passage, ye might say. Will China prove a safe haven or a lee shore.
For how long will we be able to afford our 600 Billion Pentagon if things keep up?
Or SS and all the other entitlements.
Seems a financial Day of Reckoning beckons.
This is a joke right?
God’s abundant blessings on you, Mr. Head.
I could have a little more respect for Mittens if he would denounce and regret that he signed healthcare for Massachusetts. However he rather defends it instead.....does Mitt live in a glass house?
Thank you so much for your thoughts, prayers, blessings, and encouragement. The same to you and your family from He who sits on High...ten fold.
I have heard him many times talk about Masscare in glowing terms - he is in a no win situation on this one. He has tried to take credit for it when it benefits him and at a time like this he balks at his opponenet for doing what he did in his own state as governor. He can’t have it both ways - it is one thing to learn from your mistakes but if you keep touting them like they aren’t mistakes have you really learned or are you just a hypocrite?
Mitt Romney: Now that Romneycare is national, a little self examination
may be in order. You may want to ask yourself if I had spent my time promoting
RomneyCare, could I have garnered more support of Obama?
Romney praises Obama
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney praised President Obama
at a GOP fundraising dinner Wednesday ..
"I also think it's important for us to nod to the president when he's right," Romney said....
Romney, who spoke at a dinner for the National Republican Senatorial Committee,
said he's pleased with the president's plans to "finish the job" in Iraq and Afghanistan
-- lines that drew applause from the partisan audience. He also applauded the president
for standing up to the auto industry.
"I hope he continues to be tough ....The former businessman even offered faint praise for
Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, saying that after a series of initial missteps,
"I think he's finally getting close to the right answer."
... “I’m already sick of hearing from the press what a “masterful” job Pelosi and Obama have done with the Health Care Monstrocity.”
No kidding. I wouldn’t call a 219 / 212 vote split a mandate, or product of “masterful” manuevering.
Although it handed the D’s their unsavory victory, I’d be hard pressed to say 219-212 is a resounding, resolute victory.
We agree. You can spin politics, you can spin a vote in the House or Senate.
You can’t spin basic math, and its got to catch up eventually.
No denying most of what you stated, but he has admitted it was a mistake.
My primary concern is we will end up with another ‘default’ nominee, like McCain, if we start off two and a half years early, bashing everybody that dares to consider running. The way things are going, the only thing that can stop a GOP take back from the Dems over the next TWO election cycles...is ourselves. JMHO.
Romney is not the answer. As you say in your reply, "We need strong leaders who will talk straight...real straight...
Benedict Willard Romney:
What my (the Romney) presidential campaign staffers have
ushered into the American political landscape is not good for our country;
in the words of an ancient maxim, what starts twisted, ends twisted.
Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I'm told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin's people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney's former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the "Diva" leak was Nicolle Wallace's husband."
Kathleen Parker: "[I]t is increasingly clear that Palin is a problem." "Parker ... says something publicly that many of us have thought privately
but lacked the courage to say out loud - Palin should step down:"
I agree with your opinion as well - I think that the dem political machine will push for us to have exactly that - the weakest default nominee possible. I hope a candidate pulls ahead of the pack right away so that there is not a huge battle between candidates in 2012.
...and we can still beat it through the senate forcing it back to the house, or through the parlimentarian kicking it out.
This fall, we need to change things enough to either turn it around, or at least hold it up completely until the 2012 cycle uhers in enough count to turn it over.
Romney has been campaigning all along...
About fighting the ObamaRomneyCare Bill...
RINO Romney once again shows what a lousy Commander-in-Chirf he would have been...
The US has never started to fight...
AFTER the war is over and we’ve been licked...
We dont hide out while the bad scary bang bangs are going on...
We’ve always been there in the thick of it at the first provication..
We stick up for ourselves...
We say things like “I have not yet begun to fight!” only in the thick of battle whe the other side demands we surrender..
Cowardly fools like RINO Romney do not make American leaders...
