Proof Democrats Shut Down Government For Politics

When the continuing resolution was being debated the Republicans offered to continue to fund every part of government except for Obamacare and when that did not fly they offered to fund every part of government if the individual mandate was delayed for a year. That did not fly. Keep in mind that Republicans passed all the appropriations bills needed to run government last spring but Harry Reid did not address them so we went into the last minute crisis mode.

This was by design and was part of the plan orchestrated by Valerie Jarrett in order to shut down government and blame Republicans in order to gain a political advantage in the 2014 midterm elections.

The Republicans finally capitulated and took some token concessions in order to pass the CR and at the same time extend the debt limit.

The debt limit is actually a misnomer because there is no cap at the present. In fact, it is quite possible, if Obama spends at a weekly rate he has since government reopened, we could add 5 TRILLION dollars to the debt (for a total of 22 TRILLION) by February 2014. In other words, we could have 5 TRILLION more in debt in four short months…

One thing that took a back seat to the PARTIAL government shutdown was the rollout of Obamacare. It has been a disaster and now that the government has (FULLY) reopened we are hearing endless stories about how terrible this thing is. The media are trying to run cover for Obama and the Democrats but that is not working well as even they can’t lie enough to cover the truth.

The number of people who were able to enroll is a small fraction of that needed in order to have success. The website does not work and when someone actually gets in they are shocked at the huge increase in cost for health insurance.

All those folks who thought they were getting free stuff are now getting sticker shock. Some are refusing to sign up opting to pay the penalty. Others have refused to try or have quit trying because the website does not work.

With all of this going on Democrats are open to the idea of delaying the individual mandate so that things can be worked out and people will not be penalized for being unable to access the portal.

Keep in mind that none of the Democrats came forward during the budget process to support Republicans in getting a one year delay. It is important to keep that in mind because these Democrats remained silent preferring that government shut down rather than allow a one year delay.

The major problem was in the Senate where NO Democrats (with the possible exception of one) came forward and said they would support a one year delay. They dutifully stood with Harry Reid and helped shut down the government for political gain.

Now that the government has reopened with no delay in Obamacare ALL Senate Democrats who are up for reelection in 2014 have suddenly voiced their willingness to delay the mandate. Some want a 6 month delay, some until January 2015 (after the election) and others even longer.

Many of these Democrats are in conservative states and expect to have a battle in the next election. They are now doing whatever they have to in order to keep their jobs.

Here is the reality in a nutshell:

When they could have acted to delay Obamacare when it would have benefitted their constituents they refused to act. Now that they succeeded in shutting down the government and laid that on Republicans they are willing to delay Obamacare’s individual mandate but not to help YOU, to help them keep their jobs.

Be sure to remember that they put their own interests above yours when Election Day rolls around.

Bawney Fwank Is Weaving Congwess

Congressman Barney Frank of Massachusetts is not going to run for reelection because redistricting has left him with a district that is not as liberal as it once was. Frank has decided that he would not have it as easy as he has in the past and might end up losing. He figures that after 32 years in Congress it is time to move on so he can make even more money as a lobbyist or some other kind of blood sucker.

I am glad Frank is not running for reelection though I would love to see him get beat in an election. He is a disgusting, lying, condescending, smug, jerk who thinks he is above everyone else. He has told lies and denied involvement in things EVEN after being shown video evidence of him saying the things of which he was accused. He is one of the people who is primarily responsible for the housing market collapse that resulted in the current economic downturn.

He is a typical liberal elitist who thinks he knows what is good for all of us.

To Barney Frank, you are not smart enough to run your own life so you need him and others in government to tell you what to do and how and when to do it.

Frank however, allowed a homosexual prostitution ring to be run out of HIS home but he knows what is best for you. Frank claims not to know what was taking place in his home. If this is the case is he competent enough to decide what should go on in yours?

Many liberals think so and they will surely have many nice things to say about this moron. DNC Chairwoman, Debbie Washer-Woman Schultz, is already expressing how sad she is that Frank is leaving. Washer-Woman Schultz might not understand that Frank is a coward who is afraid of being beaten in the next election and who does not want to actually have to campaign. While he might enjoy being spanked he does not want to lose his election and he does not want to actually have to work to keep his seat (though he might enjoy giving that away as well).

In any event, this low life cretin who is nothing more than a waste of flesh is leaving office. That is great news as we begin the process of getting rid of the trash.

Goodbye you good for nothing liberal twit. If we never hear from you again it will be far too soon.

Ditching Obama Would Be An Admission Of Failure

Two Democrat pollsters, Patrick H. Caddell and Douglas E. Schoen, are saying that Obama should not run for reelection and should instead allow Hillary Clinton to run. These pollsters believe that doing this is the best chance Democrats have for keeping control of the White House.

I believe that such a move would certainly energize Democrats who have become disillusioned over Obama and his failures and will certainly increase Democrat voter turnout in the next election but there is a problem. If this situation were to occur it would be a huge admission that the Democrats made a mistake in 2008.

The next logical question would be how can we trust them not to make a mistake again? Clinton and Obama have basically the same political views and both desire the same Socialist policies for the country. They both have no problem with government programs that keep people in poverty and enslaved to government because they are both part of the wealthy elite.

Clinton is a bit more likable than Obama and has more experience (though her biggest qualification for office was that she is married to a former president) than Obama but there is no guarantee she will run the country any differently. She tried to give us Obamacare during her husband’s time in office (it was called Hillarycare back then) so it is highly unlikely she would do anything to dismantle it. In fact, she would probably work hard to make it more controlling over our lives.

Even if voters were unable to see the similarities between these two people the Republican nominee would most certainly point them out. Additionally, the Democrats would get hammered for admitting that it was a mistake to elect Obama. How could they go to America and say “elect Hillary because we know she is the best” when they did not elect her last time. Obama was their best back then so how can they change?

Don’t get me wrong, they are politicians looking to keep power so they will say whatever they need to. The problem is not that they say it; the problem is that there are too many people who believe it.

That might be changing as more people are reading, listening, and getting involved in politics.

I know it would be tempting for Hillary to step up to save the day especially after she was screwed out of the nomination by fraud from the Obama campaign during the Democratic primaries in 2008. The problem for her is she would have a much harder time now because she would be following the person she eventually supported. Hillary has been on board for all of Obama’s missteps and has supported everything he has done.

It will be hard for her to distance herself or to show she is any different. It will also be hard for her to shake the problems that would be caused by Democrats openly admitting the mistake of Obama.

Caddell and Schoen might think it would benefit Democrats if Obama opted out and Hillary ran but that is just a pipedream.

The reality of the situation would make it more of a nightmare for Democrats…

Evan Bayh Throws In The Towel

This is shaping up to be a very bad year for Democrats. Despite requests from Barack Obama and Rahm Emanuel to reconsider, moderate Democrat Evan Bayh of Indiana will not seek reelection stating that he still has a desire to serve the people, just not in Congress.

Evidently, the hostile environment in Congress is becoming too much for the moderates. Bayh only voted with his party 71% of the time and I am willing to bet he got beat up over votes against the agenda or that he felt pressured to vote in a manner that he did not want.

Bayh’s decision comes as a surprise to many as it looked like he would probably win reelection. I doubt that the possibility of a tough race had anything to do with his decision. He probably is genuinely fed up with the atmosphere in Congress.

Bayh probably did not agree with the Obama agenda, or at least major protions of it. He endorsed Hillary Clinton for president.

Plus, he is a family man and likes to spend time with his children and attend their activities. No one can fault him for that.

Bayh’s decision caps off a trifecta that began when Christopher Dodd and Byron Dorgan announced last month that they will not seek reelection.

A commenter at the source site had a great point:

“To Democrats, I would remind you that we still have the largest majority in decades, and the people expect us to solve some problems, not run for the hills,” – Obama

Oh well.

Indiana is a conservative state and usually pretty red. Bayh is a well liked moderate but the state trends Republican. Obama won the state last year becoming the first Democrat to win it since Lyndon Johnson.

I bet the folks of Indiana have buyer’s remorse and will not go Democrat again for a long time. They are probably still asking what they have done…

Or maybe they are asking themselves the question Sarah Palin posed; “How’s that hopey-changey thing working out for ya?

Dorgan Will Not Seek Reelection

Democrat Byron Dorgan of North Dakota will not seek reelection in 2010. The Senator states he wants to spend more time with his family. Considering that he is down by 31 points to a man who has yet to announce it seems that Dorgan would get to spend more time with his family even if he did run again.

The reality is that Dorgan does not want to end his political career by getting his ass handed to him on a platter so he is bowing out.

As the musical group Queen put it, Another One Bites the Dust.

Democrats are jumping off the ship rather rapidly and deciding either to not run in the first place or to not seek reelection. The downside of this, with regard to Dorgan, is that he can now do what he wants without fear of repercussion. He can vote for any Democrat bill regardless of how the people feel and not worry about the backlash at the polls.

Harry Reid and Chris Dodd are gone unless things drastically change and now Dorgan will not be in the mix. Republicans have a real good chance of cutting into the Democrat’s lead in the Senate if not take back control.

This next year will be a true test of America and will show if the citizens have truly had enough of this out of control government.

We can put a hurting on Democrats in two short weeks by electing Republican Scott Brown to fill Ted Kennedy’s seat in Massachusetts. Things are looking promising in that race but it will be a struggle. Voter turnout and the unaffiliated voters will decide that election.

UPDATE: Moments after I posted this Fox News and Drudge broke the news that Chris Dodd will not seek reelection. The problem is that without Dodd to beat up on Republicans have little chance of winning in very blue Connecticut. Story at Washington Post.
