Just in case you might miss it, we're winning the fight against Obamacare, against socialism. Can you smell it? It's the smell of victory.
They recognize it too. Howard (The Scream) Dean:
"One of the leading progressive champions of health care reform is pessimistic about the state of the debate in the Senate, saying he sees virtually no path to passing strong legislation and predicting potential congressional losses for Democrats as a consequence.
Former DNC Chair Howard Dean told the Huffington Post on Monday that Senate Democratic leadership was "in deep trouble" on health care, even after Majority Leader Harry Reid cobbled together over the weekend the 60 votes needed to get legislation to the floor. The problem was as much about politics as policy.
"I think if you passed the Senate bill tomorrow it would be OK. But then the problem is they don't have any defense for their members in 2010," Dean said, noting that the public option would not become operational until 2014. "On the other hand, if they drop the public option [to placate moderate members], I think they lose seats." "So this is really tough. I didn't anticipate being in this position. I thought it would pass.
Maybe Harry has some magic up his sleeve. But I don't see how he gets those four votes [Sens. Joseph Lieberman (Conn.), Mary Landrieu (La.), Blanche Lincoln (Ark.) and Ben Nelson (Neb.)] without compromising the bill," Dean concluded."Translation? We won folks. We can say it, we won the battle to stop Obamacare from passing.
There is no way that a public option - first step to socialization of medicine - is happening in America any time soon, and that's GOOD NEWS. Thanks the thousands of Americans who stood up to the socialists who have invaded our government and said, not "No", but "Hell No!".
Oh sure they'll get something through, next year and it will be "reform", but it won't contain a public option or taxpayer funded abortion, both are effectually dead in the water. What will pass will been nothing in comparison to what was proposed and that's a win for us, a sound defeat for socialist Democrats.
No, the fight isn't completely over, we need to keep up the marches, the protests, the letters, phone calls, emails and faxes. You don't stand over your enemy when you've vanquished him, you cut off his head to make sure he doesn't get back up. We need to keep up the fight until every last ounce of Pelosi/Reid is out of Washington for good, and if not gone effectually neutralized.
2010 is the beginning of the end of socialist rule in our country as we begin the swing back to conservative governance. The signs are there that we will have a very good 2010 election and gain much back of what we lost. 2012 is looking brighter everyday. American's have realized their mistake, the polls have shown us that.
I was right of course in saying that Barack Obama will become anathema to Democrats as his sinking poll numbers - unprecedented in history - just over one year in office will cause Dems to shrink back, fearing even being slightly influenced by his unpopularity.
By 2010 those numbers will be in the sub 30s-40s and by all accounts Obama will be as popular as Marion Barry without the crack. He'll be alone, no one - except of course Axlerod and teleprompter.
It's good for now though to realize that Americans rose to the occasion and corrected this wrong wrought in the fall of 2008, and by the fall of next year the correction will be completed.
Savor the moment, we're winning, and in the end we will win.
