The New York Times has an article about the briefing on the Health Care Bill that the Obama Administration gave medicine companies, and this little tidbit stands out:
Mr. Obama, during his private pep talk to Democrats, recognized Mr. Owens’s election and then posed a question to the other lawmakers. According to Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, who supports the health care bill, the president asked, “Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit” Democratic voters “and it will encourage the extremists.”
Uh, yeah! Duuuuh! President Rocket Scientist stumbles onto the purpose of the Tea Parties. Brilliant, genius.
And then there was this tidbit of naked hypocrisy:
Another freshman Democrat from New Mexico, Representative Martin Heinrich, said the president’s comments overall were reassuring. “If you want to see a recipe for failure,” Mr. Heinrich said, “don’t do the things you talked about in your campaigns and turn your back on your base. All the independent voters in the world don’t matter if the Democrats don’t turn out.”
Oddly, Rep. Heinrich didn’t see how he was hoisting President Narcissist with his own petard. Typical.
On the other hand, this is probably GOOD thing. It shows how seriously and deeply the Democraps have underestimated the Tea Party/9-12 movements, and that it goes all the way to the top.
Well, that’s good. It shows just how seriously the Democraps have underestimated the Tea Parties — and that it goes all the way to the top.
