The Democrats have been running around blaming everything and everyone but themselves for what has been done or not done while they have been in power. It is just more proof that the government is running the Democrat Party, not the other way around. They have been so busy make up excuses and playing political games with the minority party that they keep dropping the ball. With as much a majority as they had they should have been able to get something done that is good for the country and her people. The Democrats need to start taking their jobs serious and stop playing games with the wellfair of our nation. If the president is serious about passing nationalized health care, he ought to be meeting with the Democrats, not the Republicans.
Republicans can't stop the Democrats from socializing health care: They are a tiny minority party in both the House and the Senate. (Note to America: You might want to keep this in mind next time you go to the polls.)
As the Democratic base has been hysterically pointing out, both the House and the Senate have already passed national health care bills. Either body could vote for the other's bill, and -- presto! -- Obama would have a national health care bill, replete with death panels, abortion coverage and lots and lots of new government commissions! The Republicans need to distance themselves as far away from these Progressive programs as possible. They need to be proud to be the party of "NO". No big government,no new entitlement and no more taxing anyone unfairly just because they have more then others. And the Republicans need to stop meeting with the Democrats and meet with we the people. We are the one they work for. Let the Blue Dogs and Progressive Democrats fight it out to the end. They made their bed, now they must lie in it. The Blue Dogs have a lot to be scared of because it is the party they love that wont see power for decades if they ram this bill down the American voters throat. Like Obama said he would rather be a one term president that got his radical progressive agenda passed then to be a two term president that was liked. The Blue Dog Reagan Democrats need to wake up and see who will be going down with the president when he falls. Obama will take the DNC with him just like Carter did. And with loving arms the Republicans and the Libertarians will scoop up the pieces of the party. They will take the Reagan conservative Democrats and leave the rotting corpes of the progressive Democratic party there to rot so we the people never make that mistake again.
