ObamaCare: The president’s “hurry up and wait” plan

Filed under: General — Karl @ 4:32 pm

 At Friday’s Ohio town hall, Pres. Obama seemed awfully dismissive of the “tizzy” over the Massachusetts Senate election, and the effect it has had on final passage of ObamaCare.

Even TPM cannot help but show their mostly left-wing readers that Obama has spent almost a year demanding that Congress pass ObamaCare:

Pres. Obama assured everyone today:

“I want you to understand — this is not about me. This is not about me. This is about you.”

Yeah, right. The president spent a year demanding immediate action on a bill which, if passed, would not go into effect for years. And now that he is starting to realize that ObamaCare is an enormous political liability, he is content to let “the dust settle” on it. But it is not all about him. It is about you, and how much less you like his bill now.

  1. In Obama-speak, doesn’t the phrase “I want you to understand” have the same meaning as “Let me be clear”?

  2. Let me be clear is one of the many precursors to a whopper of a lie that inevitably follows.

    When he says it is about you, you means that ever dwindling number of rabid leftists that want to inflict dirty little socialisms on our country.

  3. This guy really thinks that everyone forgets what he said the instant he says something contradictory. Like **poof** he can magically erase the past.

    He’s delusional.

  4. me, me, me, me… I, I, I… This guy hasn’t so much as run a small business before taking office. How in the hell could any reasonable person with average critical-thinking skills think he could create jobs?!?!

    If the majority of voters in November of 2008 were stupid enough to vote this fraud in, this country deserves the tailspin it’s in.

  6. TPM usually ticks me off, but with this video compilation THEY DONE GOOD! REAL GOOD!

  7. You know, he did get pretty close. A bad bill passed in both houses. The TEA folks, the Brown campaign, they stopped it just in time to change some congressional votes, but these are democrats.

    And these democrats have trillions of reasons why they are going to pass this bill in 2010. All they need is to start a health care financial crisis that will force us to single payer down the road. It shouldn’t be too hard for them to put together a health care “reform” that doesn’t offend to many people but starts that avalanche.

    And if they don’t get it in 2010, by miraculous lucky, 2011. Onward. They win once, and that’s enough. We have to defend this hill 1000 times.

    I have to give Obama credit for his dedication to keep it up. That is the secret to success for a lot of people.

    the right hasn’t really won anything. We’re getting out ass kicked and got up before we were counted out.

    Eeeeeyore

  12. Jon Stewart:

    “Let me see if I have this straight. You need to replace perhaps the most beloved liberal in the history of the Senate with a candidate that believes Curt Schilling is a Yankee fan. Because if this lady loses, the health care reform bill that the beloved late senator considered his legacy will die,” Stewart said. “And the reason it will die is because if Coakley loses, Democrats will only have then an 18-vote majority in the Senate. Which is more than George W. Bush ever had in the Senate when he did whenever the f**k he wanted.”

  13. I noticed whenever O goes to Ohio he is tie-less, just an observation.
    This illustrates the vacuity of the man and his plan and his co horts, impotent all.
    The only thing Obama seems good at is campaigning and tanking the economy.
