MEMBER DIARY

Dems Strap on the Dynamite T-Shirts (again)

After losing the Speaker’s Office and having more than 80 freshmen Republicans encamp in the U.S. House of Representatives, while watching moderate Dems retire at a fast clip in the Senate, it has not stopped the Dems from drinking more of the Jonestown Brigade Kool-Aid served up by the White House and the Minority Leader’s office. It’s a new flavor, they call it ObamaCare.

The latest news from The Hill is the Dems actually think they will defend ObamaCare.

From what, the Supreme Court?

The already successful repeal in the U.S. House?

A repeal vote in the Senate that the LSM (Lame Stream Media) insist does not matter?

The majority of States who have sued the Federal government over various provisions in ObamaCare?

The death by 1,000 amendments that are now being cooked up in the House and the Senate?

The repeated full-throated cry of the American public to repeal it?

Here is a summary of polling data on ObamaCare from two Democrats writing in Politico:

“Indeed, directly after the House voted to repeal, a few polls showed slight upticks in favorability. But whatever ground the health care law appeared to have gained proved fleeting. A poll released Tuesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health shows the law remains unpopular — with 50 percent of respondents viewing it unfavorably, up 9 percentage points from the last survey.

The health care law is at its “lowest level of popularity ever,” said Jake Tapper of ABC News, citing a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll. Rasmussen Reports, which has measured support for repeal since the bill passed, continues to find more than 50 percent of respondents in favor of repeal.”

ObamaCare polls like a lead wrecking ball tied to the ankles of the Democratic party, even as they try for the (n)teenth time to swim out of treacherous it’s waters — all while screaming about how great the law is and how it was the right thing to do. Even an average of polls has repeal at +6.

The fact that the Dems are politically irrational about ObamaCare is now a proven fact — a mere glance at Minority Leader Pelosi is proof enough: we would have lost more seats if we had not passed ObamaCare, says she.

Go ahead, strap on the dynamite t-shirts (again).

What is wrong with these people?

Really. Why don’t they just negotiate a surrender? The fact that they will not surrender is made evident by moderates who announce their retirement, while blaming ObamaCare. Senator Conrad (D-ND) knows the lunatics will fight to the last man while all around them lose ground politically, and the fact that Senators like Conrad can’t talk some sense into the irrationals speaks volumes about just how hopelessly nuts about ObamaCare Obama and the Dems and their media pals have become.

Here is more bad news for the Dems that their leadership refuse to acknowledge, listen to or understand, again — from the Politico piece cited above:

Election studies at Stanford University and the University of Minnesota concluded that at least one-third of the House seats that Democrats lost can be attributed to the electorate’s negative reaction to the health care bill. Election night exit polls found that a near majority (48 percent) of voters favored outright repeal. Independents who favored outright repeal voted for Republicans, 86 percent to 9 percent.

Normal, rational people already understood these “study” conclusions as fact.

Jonestown Kool-Aid Brigade irrationals resolutely refuse to understand the basic political facts about ObamaCare. They are scream into the wind of repeal, it is popular, it is good for our party, but — no surprise — few hear them, and fewer of the voters who hear them actually believe them.

So now the LSM is going to subject the country to another round of The One chest-beating about ObamaCare, which will drive the independents further away from the Dems because, again, just like the ObamaCare-crawl-over-glass-exercise-to-pass-it, the independent voters can see two things quite clearly, that are quite lethal to the Dems politically:

1) they still are not listening; and,

2) they don’t get it even after they were voted out of office.

As an aside, how exactly do politicians win votes by ignoring voters, and by telling voters they need to win the next election, to go pound sand?

Let the LSM promote, defend and push the pro-ObamaCare line, just like they did during the entire debate, it will only further enrage the electorate.

Which is why, when reading stories with headlines like this: “Democrats mount most aggressive fight yet to protect healthcare reform law,” it’s the best news ever.

Yes, really, the Dems have gone well past irrational straight on to stupid, and their LSM hand-maidens of self-destruction are fitting their Dem pals with dynamite t-shirts — in the mistaken and nutty belief that it will help.

It will help, just not who the LSM wants to help.
