White House Delays Asia Trip: Another Sign Obamacare on Code Blue

In the face of declining polling numbers, daily Democratic defections, and unfavorable rulings from the Senate Parliamentarian, the White House has devolved into all out panic mode. Politico reports:

President Barack Obama is delaying his trip to Indonesia and Australia by three days in hopes of finalizing a health care deal — and will scrap plans to bring along First Lady Michelle Obama and his two daughters, according to senior administration officials.

By postponing his trip, Obama effectively gives the House some breathing room, preserving the hope that members will be able to depart the Capitol for their Easter break two weeks from today with a deal in their pockets.
Two things to remember about this latest development:

1) This just proves, again, how desperate the White House is for the House of Representatives to pass the Senate health care bill before the Easter recess. The Obama administration knows the American people hate Obamacare and that after a week listening to their constituents back home, there is no way the House will take up the Senate bill again.

2) President Obama has made many other attempts at influencing outcomes with his presence. He went to Copenhagen in November to lobby for the 2016 Olympics to come to Chicago, returning there again a month later to obtain a global climate treaty. The President also campaigned for Creigh Deeds to be governor of Virginia, Jon Corzine in New Jersey and for Martha Coakley’s campaign to become junior senator from Massachusetts. We fail to see why he believes his presence at the health care negotiations might have a different impact.

Democrats up for reelection are asking Obama to "NOT" help them. Obama is the sign of corruption and deceit and Democrats are trying to "distant" themselves from him.

Just more time for Obama to threaten, Payoff, and generally strong arm members of congress to pass this mess of a bill illegally!
I hope that if it "passes" it is challenged in the Supreme court immediately!

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

Another total mistake by Obama. Obama is so full of himself, he believes he will be a welcome hero at his old school.

By delaying and advertising his upcoming visit, he gives more time for the protest to grow. If he's going to some place like this, he needs to slip in and out without fanfare...but his ego feeds on fanfare.
Indonesian students protest Barack Obama's visit

JAKARTA, Indonesia -- Scores of Islamic students staged protests outside Jakarta's parliament and in at least three other major Indonesian cities on Friday against President Barack Obama's upcoming visit to this predominantly Muslim country.

The students carried banners branding Obama as an enemy of Islam and an imperialist in downtown Jakarta as well as in the provincial capitals Padang, Yogyakarta and Surabaya.

They also threw shoes at large pictures of Obama's head.

Protest organizer Ahmad Irhamul Fikri, spokesman for the Coordinating Board for Campus Proselytizing Institute, said bigger rallies will be staged next Friday in more Indonesian cities ahead of Obama's March 20-22 visit.

Local government officials allowed business people to erect a statue of a 10-year-old Obama in a Jakarta park in December. But it was shifted last month to a nearby elementary school that he attended after more than 50,000 people supported a Facebook campaign against it and court action was threatened.

Obama is expected to sign the statue's pedestal while in Jakarta.

This could be very dangerous for Obama...but that's a chance I'm willing to take.

Its not that a democrat or Republican is trying to get better or diffrent healtcare that bothers me as much as the whole health care bill is completelly hidden with all kinds of stuff of fun stuff for you and I to pay and to give government as much control as possible.

last I saw last week obama was at 43% approval rating.
