I guess Obama and some Democrats are slow learners.
I don't know if the Democratic Party relieves this little fact, but their popularity among the American people right now is in a downward spiral. Obama has become to the Democratic Party what George Bush was to the Republican Party. It is like and odd parallel actually. As it stands right now, Republicans are setting themselves up to possibly do the unthinkable come next year. They could actually regain control of congress. It wouldn't be because of anything Republicans done specifically. By them being the party of "no", they are now being seen as the "Anti Obama" party. Believe it or not, but that is actually a good thing. I can't understand the obsession of Obama and liberal Democrats in desperately fighting for the "government option" in the health care reform bill. I've said this many times. A health care reform bill that doesn't have any sort of tort reform in it isn't a true heath care reform bill. Kooky left wingers warned Obama and other liberal politicians, that they wouldn't support the Democrat Party come next year if the public option was removed from a final bill. If Obama and other democrats did cave to that threat, then they are beyond stupid for doing so. Democrats gained control of congress in 2006, because blue dogs had landslide victories in conservative districts. Moveon.org and George Sorros may own the Democratic Party, but they don't own the voters, and the voters are mad as hell right now. Obama and democrats that support the public option are creating nothing less then political suicide. Oh well, they are bringing it upon themselves.
