Obama's Policies Teach Moderate Democrats Hard Lessons

Wednesday, September 2, 2009 10:38 AM

By: Grover Norquist Article Font Size

August taught Democrat congressmen and senators four things:

First, there are a great number of citizens in their districts that are very unhappy with the idea of greater government control over healthcare. How these politicians learned nothing from the rallies around April 15 and July 4 is a good question. Evidently hundreds of unhappy voters talking directly to a politician makes a bigger impact than a rally of 5,000 aimed at big government in general.

Second, polling shows that independents have flipped from tired of George W. Bush and Iraq to anti-Barack Obama/Harry Reid/Nancy Pelosi big government tax and spend programs. The attempt by Democrats to demonize those who dared question their rulers at town hall meetings led to independents telling pollsters that by 2-to-1 they sided with the demonstrators. As a result the name-calling of tough questioners is seen as an insult to all middle class independents. Not smart.

Third, Blue Dog democrats who have been told their political health was foremost in the concerns of Pelosi and Reid have learned that they don't care about the abuse they are getting in their districts. They sent the Blue Dogs out without functioning talking points, without an understanding of the political winds. When Pelosi and Reid told the Blue Dogs to suck it up because they were just imagining middle class rage this was all really, said Pelosi, run by big insurance companies and drug companies they lost the trust of their freshmen and senators who knew perfectly well the mass-produced signs were being carried by paid union staff in identical T-shirts and riding buses and the critics of Obamacare made their own signs and came by car.

Fourth, August ended with House Democrats elected in 2006 and 2008 from states like Alabama and Indiana learning that the next bright idea of their fearless leaders was to publicly link government run healthcare to Ted Kennedy a synonym for bizarrely left wing in every city in the country other than Washington D.C. and Cambridge, Mass.

The Blue Dogs are beginning to realize that being part of the party run by Pelosi and Obama is about as healthy as living in a kennel owned by Michael Vick.

Even though I think that the country is being damaged beyond repair by Obama's ultra left agenda, I hope that he stays committed to his inept pushing of communist ideas long enough for the Democrats to get flushed out of congress!
Then we will get a conservative congress and President in a couple of years that will be able to start rebuilding what's left of our country.

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

That's one heck of a sentence.

Stupidity can be cured. Ignorance is for life!

Harry Reid looks like he's on his way out.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is trailing a top Republican challenger by 11 points ahead of next year's election, according to a new poll.

The Mason-Dixon Polling and Research survey, reported Sunday in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, showed GOP candidate Danny Tarkanian leading Reid by 49 percent to 38 percent in Nevada.

Tarkanian is a former basketball player for the University of Nevada-Las Vegas and recently announced his candidacy.

The new poll also showed Sue Lowden, chairwoman of the Nevada Republican Party and a possible candidate, leading Reid by 45 percent to 40 percent.
