Clueless Liberals Think GOP Is Getting Hurt On Health Care

I have been seeing all sorts of silly posts on how, if the GOP doesn’t support health care of some form, they will pay a heavy political price. The fact is the electorate is so shocked by the liberal experiment of government run healthcare most people don’t want government to do a damn thing anymore! It is not about getting the GOP on board libs, its about not losing the center-left to center-right of the country nor all the seniors and their families.

As long as the liberals keep scaring the daylights out of everyone with their ideas of government run death panels doling out treatments to those deemed worthy, all the GOP just has to do simply oppose the madness of their plans – everybody else does! If Obama and the Dems keep the ‘public option’ alive, they will continue to lose political ground build a path to a resounding defeat on 2010. The longer it stays alive, the stronger the backlash will be.

It is not the GOP (or insurance companies, or the rich) rising up in opposition that should concern Libs and Dems. It is the seniors and centrists rising up that should worry them. So far as I can tell, they are blissfully unaware of the wave they themselves are creating.

    Even Carville said it would be good for the bill to go down in flames and thus paint the Republicans as the ‘party of no’.

    Forget the merits of the bill, it is all a play for political leverage to those like him.

    I tend to look at it that they have thrown everything at this but the kitchen sink and that has now been added to the mix.

    We should continue holding our representatives’ feet to the fire with this issue and cap and tax but we should keep the political rhetoric to a minimum lest we slip up and give them something to gain traction with. The Democrats are doing a fine job of ruining their own party all by themselves, we don’t need to go giving them a unifying purpose. Just let them self-destruct and when election time comes around, we kick them out of office.

    I sure hope that the dem’s would follow Carville’s advice. Of course, since he’s always been one of Hillary’s men, he may know that the death of this health bill will mortally wound Obama’s 2012 chances, and may simply be trying to hurry that process along as fast as he can. Hillary 2012? Carville would love to see it happen.

    Obama has such nice and loyal friends. heh.

    The noise from the left wing rage machine shows that they have pretty much any thought of dealing with this on the merits.

    Now they are just trying to have us expend energy in posts just like this one.

    Merlin, don’t you think that the Republican Party should consider employing some of the Alinksy methods against the Democratic Party?

    I understand that Chuck Grassley and John Kyl both told the Democrats to go ahead and vote on the bill and that they would rather be the Party of No.

    Looks like Carville’s advice will backfire on the Dems. Good.

    I’d rather be a member of the Party of No this time around.

    Anyone watch the Barney Frank townhall meeting? Looks like a disaster for Barney. Good, hope his constituents will vote him out…out…out!

    Hello AJ,

    Drudge carries a story today saying the Democrats will go it alone and pass
    this thing.

    My question for you is, what if they do pass something that is a
    monstrosity and then they lose control of the Congress in 2010?
    How would the public health care plan be got rid of? Obviously it is
    possible but the Congress would then be portrayed as meanys.

    So can it even be done?

    Obamacare does not go into effect until 2013 but I wonder about taxes.

    Yes, it can be repealed, providing we have a very strong filibuster-free majority. Can we get a strong filibuster-free majority in 2010? I don’t think so.

    BEWARE of leftists evincing concern for conservatives! David Broder has also written an article claiming great worry for the political future of those showing vehement opposition to Hussein’s healthcare takeover. Naturally the left is used to limp-wristed republicans falling for such tripe. I don’t believe the tactics will work on the general public.
