Obamacare — however defined — has been tanking in the polls for weeks. President Obama’s handling of health care is unpopular with a majority of Americans and a majority of self-proclaimed independents.
... Democratic dudgeon that the town-hall protesters don’t want civil debate is hysterical, given that Obama wanted this over before the August recess. No wonder the president who thought the time for talk was over long ago now doesn’t like the talk he’s getting.
... the real story is to be found in the eroding support from independent voters and Blue Dog Democratic congressmen. Or in the panic among seniors that Obama will raid Medicare. Or in his inability to get progressive Democrats to agree to a bipartisan approach. Or maybe the real story is Obama’s manifest inability to sell a program he’s invested his presidency in.
- WE WON IN PART BECAUSE OBAMA AND AXELROD AND RAHM SUFFER FROM HUBRIS.
- SOCIALISTS USUALLY DO BECAUSE ONE OF THEIR MOST FUNDAMENTAL BELIEFS IS IN ELITISM AND A DISTRUST OF THE FREE MARKET.
- AND THEY THINK OF THEMSELVES AS THE ELITE.
- AS BJ CLINTON TANKED IN THE POLLS HE ADJUSTED, TRIANGULATED.
- BECAUSE THEY ARE COMMITED LEFTISTS, AS OBAMANISTAS TANK, THEY WILL GET MORE EXTREME. IOW: BRACE YOURSELVES FOLKS: IT'S GONNA GET WORSE.
