Barack Obama Tells House Democrats to Vote Against the Will of the American People … Democrats Had to be Bribed and Strong Armed for their Vote
Barack Obama and the voice of partisan politics as he leads the Democrat party off the political cliff. Obama knows damn well that a vote for Obamacare is a vote for Obama and his agenda, nothing more. It is not a vote for the American people. The polls of WE THE PEOPLE state otherwise.
I don’t quit when it comes to not listening to the American People
In the end to this President and the Democrat party, We the People mean nothing to them.
Don’t do it for me. Don’t do it for the Democratic Party. Do it for the American people. They’re the ones who are looking for action right now. (Applause.)
I know this is a tough vote. And I am actually confident — I’ve talked to some of you individually — that it will end up being the smart thing to do politically because I believe that good policy is good politics. (Applause.) I am convinced that when you go out there and you are standing tall and you are saying I believe that this is the right thing to do for my constituents and the right thing to do for America, that ultimately the truth will out.
Barack Obama met with the House Democrats yesterday in a type of rah-rah inspirational meeting as it falls flat on lies and distortions. His attempt at rallying his Democrat troops was about as disjointed and chalk full of lies and distortions of Obamacare as Obama, Pelosi and Reid have provided to We the People. The denial, lies and insanity of this idealoge President will be at the detriment of the American people.
Obama has failed to win over the American people. Obama, Pelosi and Reid have also pretty much failed to convince their own party of Obamacare without bribes, kickbacks, promises for future bills and appointments and threats. The Obama White House has threatened Democrats who do not support Obamacare
This is hardly the image that President Barack Hussein Obama put forth yesterday to his fellow Democrats in the House.
As stated by Ann Althouse the Obama speech was lackluster. Obama claimed that being a Democrat meant the following, “that we are proud of our individualism, we are proud of our liberty, but we also have a sense of neighborliness and a sense of community.” Mr. President, being a party of a community or having a sense of neighborliness has nothing to to with the government. IT HAS TO DO WITH WE THE PEOPLE AND OUR OWN INDIVIDUAL COMMUNITY.
Something inspired you to get involved, and something inspired you to be a Democrat instead of running as a Republican. Because somewhere deep in your heart you said to yourself, I believe in an America in which we don’t just look out for ourselves, that we don’t just tell people you’re on your own, that we are proud of our individualism, we are proud of our liberty, but we also have a sense of neighborliness and a sense of community — (applause) — and we are willing to look out for one another and help people who are vulnerable and help people who are down on their luck and give them a pathway to success and give them a ladder into the middle class. That’s why you decided to run.

Barack Obama once again misstates the truth to Democrats facing districts where the majority of Americans are against Obamacare. Nobody on the RIGHT is giving the LEFT advice. They are merely stating the obvious and the facts. All the polls in the US state one thing … OPPOSITION TO OBAMACARE.
As some of you know, I’m not somebody who spends a lot of time surfing the cable channels, but I’m not completely in the bubble. I have a sense of what the coverage has been, and mostly it’s an obsession with “What will this mean for the Democratic Party? What will this mean for the President’s polls? How will this play out in November? Is this good or is this bad for the Democratic majority? What does it mean for those swing districts?”
And I noticed that there’s been a lot of friendly advice offered all across town. (Laughter.) Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Karl Rove — they’re all warning you of the horrendous impact if you support this legislation. Now, it could be that they are suddenly having a change of heart and they are deeply concerned about their Democratic friends. (Laughter.) They are giving you the best possible advice in order to assure that Nancy Pelosi remains Speaker and Harry Reid remains Leader and that all of you keep your seats. That’s a possibility. (Laughter.)
Any one who does not think the Democrats will not face the wrath of the American poeple in the midterms is a fool. Thus the reason why so many Democrats are retiring this year. Interesting that many of those same Democrats are voting for Obamacare like the cowards they are knowing that they don’t have to face their constituents.
Most people thought when Scott Brown was elected to the Senate in the BLUE, BLUE, Liberal state of Massachusetts running against Obamacare that Obama’s health care plan was DOA. Any normal President who cared about America and the American people would have learned from the election and heeded the advice of We the People. Start the health care debate over and be inclusive of Republican ideas and stop the partisan politics. Not Barack Obama … it was full steam ahead, We the People be damned.
How bad is this bill? At such a late hour Obama has to arm twist and convince his own party to pass Obamacare as the only bipartisan effort with this bill has been against it.
