Obama claims that the "vast right wing" conspiracy is trying to stop "health care" reform.
"Look, let's not give him a victory, maybe we can have a replay of 1993, '94, when Clinton came in, he failed on health care and then we won in the mid-term elections and we got the majority. And I think there are some folks who are taking a page out that play book".
I think Obama is either trying to play Americans for a bunch of idiots or he has officially become paranoid. Blaming Republicans isn't going to work this time. Obama needs a bogeyman in which he can focus people's anger at. Have you noticed that Obama has all of a sudden started attacking the insurance companies? People who are informed know that Obama doesn't need one Republican vote in order to pass a government run health care bill. If his tactic is to make Republicans the bad guys, he has a problem. Most Americans are on the same side as Republicans on the issue of not wanting government to run health care. Every time Obma speaks, he sounds less and less presidential then before. If Obama and Democrats want to walk off a steep political cliff, I say they should go for it. Republicans should just stand on the sidelines and let them do it. It looks like the George Bush hangover is officially over. Who would have thought it would have only taken seven months for it to have happen, and who would have ever thought that Republicans had Barack Obama to thank for it? Obama can't make up his mind. He always keep talking about wanting "bipartisan" support for his legislation. Does this sound like Obama wants Republican support on anything?
Republicans in the House and Senate should respect Obama's wishes and "just get out of the way" and let him wreck the Democratic Party.
