    Default Has Obama Destroyed the Democrats

    As is clear now the lustre has left Obama, in the US anyway.

    There are 5 major issues but as of yet only one has really hit the public consiousness and that is his health care plan. Not surprisingly there are very few in favour of it. People are happy with their health care system. I don't see anybody dying on the streets for want of care. Speaking for Massachusetts, everyone even illegals get taken care of.

    Even though the democrats have a huge majority in the House, Pilosi could not bring it to a vote. The part where old people will be sent hospises while rich pigs like Ted Kennedy will waste 20 million to keep him alive a while longer is rubbing people the wrong way.

    The people are making their voices heard at last. These poor democrats are having a nasty wakeupcall.

    Look at that fool Driehaus, he dosn't know what hit him

    This is Tim Bishop


    My favourite of course is this one

    It is happening all over. Whoever votes for this is in serious trouble


    However the cap and trade could be a bigger problem. It is not on the radar scoop of most people. It has passed the House by just 7 votes and would need to be voted on again but it will not pass the Senate. When people find out about this trillion dollar tax on the poor it will be some fun. The poor democrars will realise that they are getting the shafteroo while the rich jet arround to plant a tree.


    The economy and the bailouts for the banksters continue apace. The latest is the Cash for Clunkers fiasco. Nobody could make this boondoogle up. What has Obama done for the democrat voter. The same as he did for his brother in the hut, that is jackshythe. After giving away about 4 trillion do you think that he could even have brought the credit card interest rate down from 29%. Of course not, because it is the poor that are paying and Obama is on the side of the banksters.

    Another eyeopener for the democrat bluecollar worker will be when 25 million illegals get amnesty. What fun that will be


    And finally we have the wars. I think the peaceniks have already figured this one out



    We are only 6 months in and Obama is already a lame duck.

    No. All he has to do is keep his nerve.

    His core policies are sensible, and will have the effect of dismantling the neo-con power base in the US.
    Marxists, Feminists and Leftists operate on the basis of "liberating tolerance" - i.e. their ideas should be tolerated, and any opposition should be suppressed.

    To answer your question: Not Yet.

    But it is early days.

    No, every morning you wake up and like to think to yourself that Obama is a lame duck. But he isn't. His approval ratings have done what most presidents' approval ratings have done - skyrocketed in the honeymoon period, then tailed off. No need for you to get so orgasmic about it, or you'll be in for a rough eight years.

    He will keep his nerve, he is "all in"

    It is the congressmen and whatever number of dem senators up for election who will face the music.

    It is hard not to see a big swing away from the dems so Obama hasonly got 16 months

    This is why you are ridiculed. You combine vulgarity and stupidity in a rare combination.

    You seem oblivious to the fact that he failed to get his health bill through despite a huge majority.


    Stick to talking about Enda the Eejit

    No, I'm just ridiculed by you - which I believe I can live with.

    And as always, you're utterly incapable of having a rational discussion with anyone who dares to suggest that not everything you say is necessarily correct.

    Just wondering, were you ever bullied at school?

    The Dems will lose seats in the House in 2010.
    Probably around 20 seats.

    That means Pelosi remains Speaker (unless replaced by another Democrat) but with a smaller majority.


    The Dems will, however, gain seats in the Senate. At least 1 more, maybe 2.
    This means the GOP will have to contend with a 60+ Democratic Senate for at least 2 more years.

    As for 2012, Obama seems to be currently in good shape to win re-election, look at demographics to see why.
    But anything can happen over 3 yrs.
