It Even Gags A Democrat

Like a cesspool cleaner who's been at it too long, sometimes the stench just gets to ya. Even for Democrats.
Perhaps Democrats know something the rest of us don't about Barack Obama's political fortunes. What else explains the increasing numbers who are openly defying the president on two key election issues?

The notoriously thin-skinned Obama could not have been happy with the news last week that, as the Hill newspaper put it, "an increasing number of Democrats are taking potshots at President Obama's health care law."

North Carolina's Brad Miller, who voted for the law, now laments that "we would all have been better off" if Congress had dealt with more pressing issues "and then came back to health care."

Barney Frank complained that the Democrats "paid a terrible price for health care." And Virginia's outgoing Sen. Jim Webb said the law would be Obama's "biggest downside" in the election and had cost him "a lot of credibility as a leader."

Meanwhile, stalwart Massachusetts liberal Elizabeth Warren is now calling to repeal a piece of ObamaCare — the 2.3% tax on medical devices — because, she says, it "disproportionately impacts the small companies with the narrowest financial margins."

Warren, by the way, is running for the Senate seat occupied by Republican Scott Brown, whose victory in 2010 was a result of the public's intense opposition to ObamaCare.

Former Alabama Rep. Artur Davis went furthest. "I think the Affordable Care Act is the single least popular piece of major domestic legislation in the last 70 years," he said. "It was not popular when it passed; it's less popular now."

This is so entertaining to watch. The Hope and Change BS only carries you so far. At some point, reality catches up, and there's nowhere left to turn...

It makes sense to me, these folks are trying to create some distance in case the Health Care Dictates get tossed out by the SCOTUS.

It is all about the direction of the wind and of course money.

The one thing that cannot change is a vote, in this case a congressional vote, to see who was for this debacle before they were against it.

This is just further proof that Democrats are the dumbest animals on earth. They say this after shoving it down our throats ... elephants remember!

Silverfiddle - and it is just sooo disheartening on how far his BS and the media carried him.

Pewster - ObamaCare is on the same order of magnitude as the toxic TARP mortgages.

Chris - let's hope that this Novemeber the voters remember exactly who passed this POS into law.

Odie - And Pelosi with her - "You have to pass it to see what's in it" - nonsense. Someone has to put that woman out of Congress. Her weapons grade stupidity is just too dangerous for the Country.

If I didn't know better I'd swear that someone shit into an Iranian plutonium centrifuge, spun it up and poured the results unto her head.
