Depressed DUmmies Predict Obama Political Demise
I predict that if President Obama does not sign a real Public Option for Health Care into law--one that everyone has the option of purchasing that makes healthcare affordable, where every American is covered, he will not be re-elected.
[I predict grave disappointment in DUmmieland.]
The base will abandon him if he does not veto any reform bill that isn't universal and affordable.
[Abandon Ship! The S.S. Obama is sinking! And now to the other disappointed DUmmies...]
I'd say that's a pretty good prediction.
[I'd put odds on that one too.]
I won't be "abandoning" Obama...... He will have abandoned me.
I will wisely look elsewhere for representation.
We need a Progressive Party now more than ever.
[The Greens and Socialist Workers Parties have their signup booths in the wings.]
I agree .. he has said it would be done repeatedly. He won't be reelected.. without it.
IMO, the 2 hallmarks of the Obama Presidency will be health care reform and the economy. Both will have an effect on every person in the country. Since the economy can be somewhat of a wildcard issue, and the people he has advising him on it seem to want to maintain the staus quo, he needs to get healthcare reform right.
[He FLOPPED on the economy but let us cross our fingers and hope he gets healthcare right by also tossing money at it.]
I do think he lives and dies by the economy.
The economy has been tied directly to a healthcare plan.
[Tying the Porkopulos anchor to healthcare so both can sink together?]
He has hung a lot on health care and seems to be losing the battle. Maybe he has something up his sleeve that will pull it off , remains to be seen.
[Yes, the magician will pull a wascally wabbit from his sleeve and all will be well.]
He's got nothing else. No end to the wars. No end to insanely bloated WAR budgets. No prosecutions for torture or war crimes. Plenty of releasing convicted rethuglican politicians from jail but f*ck Siegleman. Plenty of support for DOMA and DADT. No f*cking clue as to what to do with the economy except shower money on the banks that destroyed it and give them complete control of the destruction via their puppets Geithner and Summers. Throw in unemployment peaking at about 15% next year.
[But, hey, he did make us aware of Five Guys Hamburgers. I actually have one nearby. Must try it out of curiosity. But NOTHING can possibly beat Tommy's Burgers in L.A.. Yummm!]
So yeah, if Obama can't deliver on at least health care, he will not be re-elected. I doubt he will even be able to win the primary. This whole administration is starting to parallel Jimmy Carter's (I love Carter but he was ineffective) and I would expect if Obama can't get health care done properly he is toast. As are we all.
