A second day of disillusionment from the left

Yesterday is it was left-of-left-of-left blogger Zach W. Today it’s that guy with a special way with words. (The Chief is decidedly big-kid language. You’ve been warned.)

Follow the link he offers. Read some of those comments. Very telling statements on the left’s take of last month’s work in the Senate.

Ok, here’s a chance to weigh in on Obama’s work for health care reform. Do you think he’s really thrown it all to (uhem) right field, or will all be forgotten for the mid-term elections?

I tend to believe the majority of voters are stupid and will cling to hope and change. HOWEVER, it also seems apparent those recently registered (including fake) voters probably won’t be showing up, and that could stand the more conservative, and more consistent voters, in very good stead.


  1. The opposition party always picks up seats following a loss in the Presidential election two years prior. Considering the employment situation in this country, this time won’t be any different.

    Voters have a short memory and the effects of health care reform (postive or negative) won’t go into effect for some years. People vote for what’s effecting them today. The here and now. Next November, the masses won’t give a damn about health care reforms passed back in December of 2009. 10% unemployment and the fear of losing their jobs worries them above anything that health care reform can do to them. The administration would be wise to pass their reform, get it over with, move on to creating effective finanicial regulation and, most of all, focus on getting people back to work quicker than what’s happening now. It’s the only thing that matters politically, come next November.

    Clinton failed to get health care reform passed early in his first term and he was fine. His failure of health care reform was a small footnote of his legacy as President. He was better known as the President who presided over one of the biggest economic expansions in American history. Tells you where American priorities are.

    The majority of voters are not very intelligent. Agreed.

  2. Voters in 2010 won’t be voting on health care reform; they’ll be voting on the economy and jobs. Sure, I’m not a fan of the Senate’s version of health care reform, but I take the good with the bad when it comes to the Democratic Party, just as you do with the GOP, Cindy.
