The Trillion Dollar President told flagging Dems at their Party pow-wow yesterday in D.C. that, as the LA Times reports, “trimming goals and postponing hard choices are the wrong approach,” and that “he would press ahead with his healthcare proposal and other pieces of his ambitious agenda.”
“It wasn’t me,” is what the Trillion Dollar President’s excuses sound like. He had a super majority in the U.S. Senate — until he and the other delusionals who will not listen made the Dem base so angry they voted a Republican Senator in from Massachusetts. He did not include the GOP in health care reform, energy reform and financial reform — and he is asserting that his Dem-only approach did not have anything to do with his legislative failures.
In fact, his legislative failures are a result of his political failures. Obama is learning that governing is not like campaigning where you just stand there and speak and the crowds go wild. No. But he is being stubborn (I will not change course) and arrogant (I am right, you are wrong) and until he changes his attitude — train wrecks will be easier for the Dems to overcome than the incredibly damaging Obama Presidency. Especially on health care. But at least the snow in D.C. and the Superbowl provide a helpful distraction for the Dems — they need it.

Apart from one criticism of Kasich on Medicaid expansion, Bush stayed focused on the prize, and came out the clear winner. Unlike the | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES This was amazing. John Dickerson is supposed to be the debate moderator and instead he starts getting into a debate with Ted Cruz regarding the appointment of Supreme Court justices during an election year. Cruz rightly pointed out it’s been precedent for 80 years not to do this. Dickerson then started arguing with Cruz about when Justice Anthony Kennedy | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Tonight, the remaining GOP candidates will take the stage once more and debate on (hopefully) the issues that really matter. The debate comes mere hours after the news that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away at the age of 79 years. This will undoubtedly lead to questions about the nomination process, who they would pick to replace Scalia | Read More »
