Michele Bachmann and the Republicans’ “House Call” that drew thousands had the effect that I was expecting; Obama is planning on going to Walter Reed to avoid protesters on Friday, and then twist some arms and create some tingles on Saturday, Chicago style, before the House vote that will establish 118 new government agencies to take away what is left of our freedom.
He is probably expecting the protesters to be gone by Saturday’s vote. Now why would the Tea Party Patriots do that?
Good luck with that Mr. pResident. If you do get this POS bill passed, 2010 is closer than you think and we WILL get it repealed.
President Barack Obama will meet with House Democrats to discuss healthcare on Saturday, when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has planned a vote on the measure.
A White House aide said the trip was postponed “to be closer to the vote.”
Obama had planned to meet with the group on Friday, but the White House schedule for the day, which came out late Thursday night, noted that the meeting has been moved to Saturday.
Instead, Vice President Joe Biden will make calls to House members from his home in Wilmington, Del. “about the need to pass health insurance reform,” according to Biden’s schedule.
That appears to be another cowardly maneuver. I have never seen such a bunch of pantywaists hiding under their beds, afraid to talk to Americans. Remember 9.12, when Obama had to mozy on out to Minnesota for his sycophants when somewhere around 2.1 MILLION Americans wanted to talk to him, and ask him to just please listen? Oh, but I just had a stupid moment there, he is from Hawaii, and here in Hawaii, politicians believe that if a constituent did not vote for them, then that constituent’s opinion does not matter. See Kelly Greenwell’s comment, “My constituency knows me and they know what I stand for. When they elected me they got the whole package and they gave me the authority to do what needs to be done. If you voted for me you have to accept my position. If you did not I don’t owe you an explanation.” This coming from the guy that wants the Gitmo detainees free in Hawaii.
The delay from the White House comes after thousands of protesters marched on Capitol Hill on Thursday, demanding that lawmakers defeat the bill for myriad reasons.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Thursday that Obama was not meeting with House Democrats because he was concerned about the vote count.
Remember, they mean exactly the opposite of what they say; in this case, it is ALL ABOUT concern over the House vote.
“No, his visit is a sign of trying to continue to make progress and get this done,” Gibbs said.
Obama is scheduled to leave Washington on Wednesday for an extended tour of Asia.
Instead of visiting Capitol Hill on Friday, Obama will make his first visit as president to Walter Reed Hospital to meet with wounded troops.
Are You Freakin’ Kidding Me? Our nation is at war in two different theatres and this clown has NOT YET been to Walter Reed Hospital? I was at Walter Reed to support the troops 2 days after I flew in for the 9.12 March, and I’m just an average citizen who does not currently know a single person in the military but I support them and show my gratitude and loyalty by being present.
My spousal unit keeps telling me that it isn’t fear on the administration’s part, it is the fact that they just do not care and could not be bothered. Maybe he is right, and if he is, I see dark days ahead.
