Obama Brass Knuckles Tactics; The Thug-In-Chief to CBO and Blue Dogs: you’ll be political road kill under my Thug-Bus

Scared Yet?

Scared Yet?

Barack Obama is revealing the dark side of Chicago Tactics as he makes threats and mounts Intimidation Attacks on the CBO and the DEM Blue Dogs.

Imagine what he would do to you if you got in his way of Destroying the Free Market System which created America’s Greatness and replacing it with Socialism; a segway to Communism, Obama Style.

If people… everyday people, do not stand up and Make each of their voices heard in every street in america by opposing Obama and his Gang of Thugs, people deserve what Obama is hell bent on creating… A Brass Knuckles Government that runs down any in it’s way.

Think it can not happen?

Ask the people of China, Russia, and Iran.

Think it can be undone?

Ask the people of Iraq…

and the cost of undoing it.

To prevent this take over will be a lot less painful than reversing it.

    ‘Blue Dog’ Vote Pivotal in Passage of Health Care Reform Bill

    The moderate “Blue Dog” Democrats are calling for provisions to ensure that the government’s plan is affordable for small businesses and are insisting on a negotiated rate for any government-run health plan that would compete with private insurance.
    A pack of dogs has emerged in the House of Representatives, and they are demonstrating just how “alpha” they can be.

    The “Blue Dog” Democrats — a group of fiscally conservative representatives who account for 52 seats in the House — are demanding that the massive bill to revise existing health insurance plans will provide an affordable government option for small businesses and competitive pricing to keep private insurers in business.

    The group met with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel in closed-door meetings for more than seven hours Tuesday night, but a compromise between the Blue Dogs and party leaders was not struck.

    “No agreement’s been reached,” Rep. Mike Ross, D-Ark., a member of the Blue Dog coalition, said after Tuesday’s late-night negotiations. “We leave each meeting with a little bit of progress.”

    Ross, who said health care is growing at twice the rate of inflation, added: “We want to squeeze everything we can out of our broken and inefficient health care system.”

    Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif. — also a member of the coalition — said negotiations have been “very, very hard” because of the tight deadlines that had been set. Harman said that while members of the group share the same concern over reducing cost and lowering drug prices, they disagree on “specifics.”

    “Democracy with a little ‘d’ is working. It may not be pretty, but it is noisy,” she said.

    Among the key members leading the coalition are Reps. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin of South Dakota, Baron Hill of Indiana, Charlie Melancon of Louisiana and Heath Shuler of North Carolina.

    The Blue Dogs have enjoyed a power surge in recent weeks, gaining momentum from public opinion polls that show the majority of Americans share their concerns about the cost of President Obama’s plan.

    If the group joins House Republicans in opposing the bill, it will not have the majority of votes needed to pass.

    On Monday, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman, D-Calif., met with the group and offered a proposal, but the Blue Dogs have asked the Congressional Budget Office to “score” — or evaluate — the cost of the plan before they sign on to it.

    “We had a good meeting, I would say it was productive,” Ross said of the meeting with Waxman, adding that the group will take time to evaluate his proposals.

    Democratic Caucus Chairman John Larson, D-Conn., said he was “absolutely convinced” that progress will be made on the bill, including a compromise with the Blue Dogs.

    But House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Monday night that a floor vote on health care reform “clearly will not be possible” by Friday, further fueling concerns among Democratic leaders that the Blue Dogs may jeopardize efforts to pass Obama’s pivotal domestic policy legislation.

    Last week the Blue Dogs saw their organizing principle, a pay-as-you-go fiscal spending policy, pass the House by a 99-vote margin. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called a news conference to praise the group. Her second-in-command, Hoyer, thanked them from the well of the House chamber and called the group “real Democrats” at a time when they are less popular with the party’s liberal flank.

    It’s Crunch Time for Israel on Iran
    After years of failed diplomacy no one will be able to call an attack precipitous

    By JOHN BOLTON
    Legions of senior American officials have descended on Jerusalem recently, but the most important of them has been Defense Secretary Robert Gates. His central objective was to dissuade Israel from carrying out military strikes against Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities. Under the guise of counseling “patience,” Mr. Gates again conveyed President Barack Obama’s emphatic thumbs down on military force.

    The public outcome of Mr. Gates’s visit appeared polite but inconclusive. Yet Iran’s progress with nuclear weapons and air defenses means Israel’s military option is declining over time. It will have to make a decision soon, and it will be no surprise if Israel strikes by year’s end. Israel’s choice could determine whether Iran obtains nuclear weapons in the foreseeable future.

    Mr. Obama’s approach to Tehran has been his “open hand,” yet his gesture has not only been ignored by Iran but deemed irrelevant as the country looks inward to resolve the aftermath of its fraudulent election. The hardliner “winner” of that election, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was recently forced to fire a deputy who once said something vaguely soothing about Israel. Clearly, negotiations with the White House are not exactly topping the Iranian agenda.

    Beyond that, Mr. Obama’s negotiation strategy faces insuperable time pressure. French President Nicolas Sarkozy proclaimed that Iran must re-start negotiations with the West by September’s G-20 summit. But this means little when, with each passing day, Iran’s nuclear and ballistic missile laboratories, production facilities and military bases are all churning. Israel is focused on these facts, not the illusion of “tough” diplomacy.

    Israel rejects another feature of Mr. Obama’s diplomatic stance. The Israelis do not believe that progress with the Palestinians will facilitate a deal on Iran’s nuclear weapons program. Though Mr. Gates and others have pressed this fanciful analysis, Israel will not be moved.

    Worse, Mr. Obama has no new strategic thinking on Iran. He vaguely promises to offer the country the carrot of diplomacy—followed by an empty threat of sanctions down the road if Iran does not comply with the U.S.’s requests. This is precisely the European Union’s approach, which has failed for over six years.

    There’s no reason Iran would suddenly now bow to Mr. Obama’s diplomatic efforts, especially after its embarrassing election in June. So with diplomacy out the door, how will Iran be tamed?

    Mr. Gates’ mission had extraordinary significance. Israel sees the political and military landscape in a very inauspicious light. It also worries that, once ensnared in negotiations, the Obama administration will find it very hard to extricate itself. The Israelis are probably right. To prove the success of his “open hand,” Mr. Obama will declare victory for “diplomacy” even if it means little to no gains on Iran’s nuclear program.

    Under the worst-case scenario, Iran will continue improving its nuclear facilities and Mr. Obama will become the first U.S. president to tie the issue of Israel’s nuclear capabilities into negotiations about Iran’s.

    Israel understands that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s recent commitment to extend the U.S. “defense umbrella” to Israel is not a guarantee of nuclear retaliation, and that it is wholly insufficient to deter Iran from obliterating Israel if it so decides. In fact, Mrs. Clinton’s comment tacitly concedes that Iran will acquire nuclear weapons, exactly the wrong message. Since Israel, like the U.S., is well aware its missile defense system is imperfect, whatever Mr. Gates said about the “defense umbrella” will be politely ignored.

    Relations between the U.S. and Israel are more strained now than at any time since the 1956 Suez Canal crisis. Mr. Gates’s message for Israel not to act on Iran, and the U.S. pressure he brought to bear, highlight the weight of Israel’s lonely burden.

    Striking Iran’s nuclear program will not be precipitous or poorly thought out. Israel’s attack, if it happens, will have followed enormously difficult deliberation over terrible imponderables, and years of patiently waiting on innumerable failed diplomatic efforts. Absent Israeli action, prepare for a nuclear Iran.

    NPR Poll Finds Tough Sledding For Obama

    July 29, 2009
    President Obama has hit a rough patch this summer, squeezed between a lingering recession and rising questions about the health care overhaul he has made the centerpiece of his first-year agenda.

    The nation is close to evenly split in its assessment of the president’s policies to date, and there is great intensity on both sides of the debate with dwindling numbers in the middle.

    Those are the chief findings of the latest NPR poll of registered voters conducted nationwide Wednesday through Sunday by a bipartisan team. The pollsters found 53 percent approving of the president’s handling of his job, while 42 percent disapproved — the narrowest gap of the Obama presidency to date. Most of the approving group said they approved strongly, and an even greater majority of the disapproving group said they disapproved strongly.

    Poll respondents liked a Democratic statement on solving health care problems better than a Republican statement (51 percent to 42 percent). However, when asked about the plan now moving through Congress, a plurality of 47 percent was opposed and 42 percent said they were in favor, based on what they had heard about the plan so far.

    In another part of the poll, respondents were asked which of two statements on the economy came closer to expressing their view. The first statement: “President Obama’s economic policies helped avert an even worse crisis and are laying the foundation for our eventual economic recovery.” The second statement: “President Obama’s economic policies have run up a record federal deficit while failing to end the recession or slow the record pace of job losses.” A plurality preferred the second statement, 48 percent to 45 percent. A majority on both sides said they agreed strongly (2 to 1 among those preferring the first statement; 3 to 1 among those preferring the second).

    But if the president saw his numbers down, Congress fared far worse, with just 7 percent saying they approved strongly and 25 percent saying they approved somewhat. A 61 percent majority said they disapproved of Congress, with 2 out of 3 of them doing so strongly.

    NPR Poll: General Direction
    Generally speaking, do you think that things in this country are going in the right direction, or do you feel things have gotten pretty seriously off on the wrong track?

    Notes
    Percentages may not total 100 because of rounding.
    Source: July 2009 NPR Poll conducted by Public Opinion Strategies/Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research
    Despite the overwhelming unhappiness with a Congress now dominated by Democrats, those polled said the majority was slightly better than the minority at addressing the nation’s priorities. On a scale of zero (very bad) to 10 (very good), those polled gave the Democrats an average of 4.4, the Republicans an average of 3.9. The Democrats got a rating of 5 or below from 61 percent; the GOP got a rating of 5 or below from 75 percent.

    The so-called generic ballot question was also very close. Asked whether they would support a Democrat or a Republican for Congress in 2010 if the election were held today, 42 percent said they would choose a Democrat and 43 percent a Republican, a difference well within the poll’s margin of error (plus or minus 3.4 percentage points for each number in each question).

    The poll was conducted by Democrat Stan Greenberg of the firm Greenberg Quinlan Rosner and Republican Glen Bolger of Public Opinion Strategies.

    More On This Poll
    Charts: Highlights From The July NPR PollFull Poll ResultsPoll Results IllustratedGreenberg and Bolger found that 38 percent considered the country to be going in the “right direction,” while 54 percent saw it on the “wrong track.” But that 15-point negative reading was the least negative of any NPR poll in more than year. The portion saying “wrong track” had been nearly 90 percent in the NPR poll done in the fall of 2008.

    The principal reason for negativity appeared to be the economy. Asked to assess the current state of the economy, 49 percent called it poor while 42 percent opted for “not so good.” Only 8 percent said it was good and only 1 percent said excellent.

    Asked to choose the issue they thought the president and Congress should pay attention to most, 39 percent said the economy. Health care, the president’s top domestic agenda item, was cited by 12 percent. These were followed by “taxes and spending” (8 percent), “terrorism and national security” (6 percent) and the federal deficit (6 percent).

    There did not seem to be much optimism regarding the overall economy in the near future. The most hopeful group (37 percent) said they thought the economy had bottomed out and begun to improve. An additional 24 percent said the bottom had been reached but things were not yet getting better. The least hopeful (37 percent) said the bottom had not yet come and conditions were going to get still worse.

    Over the longer term, the poll found a somewhat brighter expectation. Two-thirds (67 percent) said they expected the economy to be better a year from now, while only 24 percent expected it to be worse.

    Similarly, 50 percent said they thought they would personally be better off in a year, while 28 percent expected to be worse off and 13 percent foresaw no change.

    Another bit of relief for the Obama administration in the data showed a majority holding President Bush more responsible for the state of the economy than President Obama. Nearly half those polled (49 percent) agreed strongly with this sentiment and 7 percent agreed with it somewhat, while 24 percent disagreed strongly and 7 percent disagreed somewhat.

    When asked to choose between competing statements regarding the recently passed energy bill, 53 percent preferred the Democratic defense of the bill and 40 percent the Republican critique.

    Morning VF – Tellit – M2 Karm Rose?

    Tellit your post about the polls is disturbing in the picture of polarization it sees as developing.

    The nation is close to evenly split in its assessment of the president’s policies to date, and there is great intensity on both sides of the debate with dwindling numbers in the middle.

    The more I discover about the Health Care plan, the more frightened I become. The more I see of the President’s tactics, the more concerned I become.

    And really, Mr. President, a picnic table meeting between Gates and the Officer – a little hot for an August meeting wouldn’t you say?

    Backlash: Democratic dangers mount

    Democrats giddy with possibilities only six months ago now confront a perilous 2010 landscape signaled by troublesome signs of President Barack Obama’s political mortality, the plunging popularity of many governors and rising disquiet among many vulnerable House Democrats.

    The issue advantage has shifted as well, with Democrats facing the brunt of criticism about the pace of stimulus package spending, anxiety over rising unemployment rates and widespread uneasiness over the twin pillars of Obama’s legislative agenda: his cap-and-trade approach to climate change and the emerging health care bill.

    Bolstered by historical trends that work in the GOP’s favor — midterm elections are typically hostile to the party in power — and the prospect of the first election in a decade without former President George W. Bush either on the ballot or in office, Republicans find themselves on the offensive for the first time since 2004.

    None of this is to say that the Democratic congressional majorities are in serious jeopardy. The GOP has suffered some significant setbacks, ranging from headline-grabbing personal indiscretions to Sen. Arlen Specter’s party switch, and it continues to be plagued by an inability to present its own new ideas.

    Yet the possibilities GOP officials now imagine are a dramatic shift from the bleak prospects that the 2010 midterm elections presented for the party at the beginning of the year.

    Back then, the newly elected president was fresh off a sweeping victory and riding a wave of inaugural goodwill. The Republican Party’s standing had seemingly hit rock bottom in the polls. The enormous Democratic House majority looked unassailable, and the party’s advantage in the Senate looked nearly as formidable, with the GOP forced to defend more Senate seats in total in 2010 than Democrats — a predicament exacerbated by a handful of Republican retirements in key battleground states.

    “There’s a sense building among Republicans that 2010 is going to be a far better political environment than 2008 or 2006,” said GOP pollster Whit Ayres. “Part of that is because we have a Democratic president and a Democratic-controlled Senate and House that are promoting fiscally dangerous policies for the future of the country. Part of it is we don’t have the burden of Iraq as we did in 2006 and don’t have the economy on the Republicans’ watch as we had in 2008.”

    In one sign of the reconfigured landscape, Republican candidates lead in the polls in this fall’s closely watched gubernatorial elections — in New Jersey and Virginia. In New Jersey, where first-term Democrat Gov. Jon Corzine trails his challenger by double digits, a far-reaching corruption investigation has led to the resignation of one member of Corzine’s Cabinet and insider speculation about whether Corzine should be replaced on the ticket in November by a more viable Democratic nominee.

    Corzine, who has shown no indication he’s willing or interested in stepping down, isn’t the only Democratic governor buffeted by the political winds. A handful of Democrats whose seats are up for election in 2010, including Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle and Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, have recently seen their approval ratings plummet below 40 percent — dangerous territory for an incumbent.

    In New York, Gov. David Paterson faces similarly daunting numbers, and other first-term Democratic governors from Ohio to Iowa to Colorado have also seen their approval ratings move in the wrong direction. In Pennsylvania, a recent Quinnipiac University poll reported Gov. Ed Rendell with the lowest approval rating of his two terms in office.

    “What’s hurting the Democrats badly is that people are afraid of the deficit and spending. They don’t see signs of economic growth, and people are worried,” said GOP pollster John McLaughlin. “If you look at the economy right now, voters gave the Democrats benefit of the doubt, they thought the stimulus would work, employment would recede — and they’re finding out now it’s not the case.”

    SPIN METER: ‘Help Wanted’ counting stimulus jobs
    Jul 28 03:02
    By RYAN KOST
    Associated Press Writer

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – How much are politicians straining to convince people that the government is stimulating the economy? In Oregon, where lawmakers are spending $176 million to supplement the federal stimulus, Democrats are taking credit for a remarkable feat: creating 3,236 new jobs in the program’s first three months.
    But those jobs lasted on average only 35 hours, or about one work week. After that, those workers were effectively back unemployed, according to an Associated Press analysis of state spending and hiring data. By the state’s accounting, a job is a job, whether it lasts three hours, three days, three months, or a lifetime.

    “Sometimes some work for an individual is better than no work,” said Oregon’s Senate president, Peter Courtney.

    With the economy in tatters and unemployment rising, Oregon’s inventive math underscores the urgency for politicians across the country to show that spending programs designed to stimulate the economy are working—even if that means stretching the facts.

    At the federal level, President Barack Obama has said the federal stimulus has created 150,000 jobs, a number based on a misused formula and which is so murky it can’t be verified.

    At least 10 other states have launched their own miniature stimulus plans and nine others have proposed one, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Many of them, like Oregon, have promised job creation as a result of the public spending.

    Ohio, for instance, passed a nearly $1.6 billion stimulus package even before Congress was looking at a federal program. When Gov. Ted Strickland first pitched the idea last year, he estimated the program could create some 80,000 jobs.

    In North Carolina, a panel authorized hundreds of millions of dollars in new debt to speed up $740 million in government building projects. According to one estimate, the move could hurry the creation of 25,000 jobs.

    As the bills for these programs mount, so will the pressure to show results. But, as Oregon illustrates, job estimates can very wildly.

    “At best you can say it’s ambiguous, at worst you can say it’s intentional deception,” said economist Bruce Blonigen of the University of Oregon. “You have to normalize it into a benchmark that everybody can understand.”

    Oregon’s accounting practices would not be allowed as part of the $787 billion federal stimulus. While the White House has made the unverifiable promise that 3.5 million jobs will be saved or created by the end of next year, when accountants actually begin taking head counts this fall, there are rules intended to guard against exactly what Oregon is doing.

    The White House requires states to report numbers in terms of full-time, yearlong jobs. That means a part-time mechanic counts as half a job. A full-time construction worker who has a three-month paving contract counts as one-fourth of a job.

    Using that method, the AP’s analysis of figures in Oregon shows the program so far has created the equivalent of 215 full-time jobs that will last three months. Oregon’s House speaker, Dave Hunt, called that measurement unfair, though nearly every other state that has passed a stimulus package already uses or plans to use it.

    “This stimulus plan was intentionally designed for short-term projects to pump needed jobs and income into families, businesses and communities struggling to get by,” Hunt said in a statement. “No one ever said these would be full-time jobs for months at a time.”

    Still, critics say counting jobs, without any consideration of their duration, isn’t good enough.

    “You can’t let them say, ‘Well, we never said it was going to be full-time,'” said Steve Buckstein, a policy analyst for the Cascade Policy Institute, a free-market think tank. For the price of Oregon’s $176 million, lawmakers could have provided all 3 million state residents with a one-hour job paying about $60, he said.

    “By their definition, that’s 3 million jobs,” Buckstein said. “Is anybody gonna buy that?”

    Oregon’s 12.4 percent unemployment rate surpasses the national average of 9.4 percent. To supplement the federal stimulus, the state sold bonds to pay for everything from replacing light bulbs to installing carpet and finishing construction of a school in the farming community of Tillamook.

    The “Go Oregon” program is still new. According to its latest progress report, 8 percent of the money has been spent and hundreds of projects have yet to be completed. More paychecks are bound to be written as construction continues.

    If Oregon’s dollars-to-jobs ratio remains steady, the program will create about 688 full-time, yearlong jobs. So far, it’s generated only enough hours to employ 54 people full-time for a year.

    Still, contractor Deborah Matthews of Pacificmark Construction, based in Milwaukie, Ore., is happy for any work. Her company picked up three contracts for painting, installing a water filter system and refurbishing a maintenance building. Prior to those contracts, which lasted about six weeks, she had laid off nearly all her construction workers. She brought back three full-time and hired a part-time worker.

    “It was a little bit,” she said, “to just keep us going.”

    “I know that in my Constitution, that I took an oath to – I know that all the powers of the legislative branch of government are confined in article I section VIII, and they have less than 20 enumerated powers. And nowhere in there, as was already touched on earlier, nowhere in there is healthcare mentioned, which is also health control, which isn’t also mentioned. It’s not mentioned in there, so she has no business except fighting against it.”

    …Applause…

    “And I’ve mentioned this to politicians before, and they the Constitution and they turn it into some kind of huge elastic document that they try to wrap around everything. If you read our founding fathers even they said that the general welfare clause, which she’s probably going to try to use to explain – even the general welfare clause – our founding fathers Thomas Jefferson, James Madison the father of the Constitution, Benjamin Franklin, and so on, so on, so on. Every one of them said that the general welfare clause was only to be used within the confines of the enumerated powers in Article I Section VIII.”

    “Claire McCaskill. I’m not so much looking for an explanation from her, as I’m looking for an apology, because this shouldn’t even be introduced.”

    Our Legislators need to read the bills they vote on, but more important, they need to read the Constitution, because they’d find that these bills they write and vote on without reading, are un-constitutional.

    House Democrats reach deal on healthcare bill.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Democratic leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives have reached a deal with a group of fiscal conservatives in their own party on how to move forward with healthcare legislation, a leading lawmaker said on Tuesday.

    Representative Mike Ross, who leads the so-called “Blue Dog” conservative coalition, said they had reached a deal with leadership after days of long negotiations.

    CNN said that under the agreement, a healthcare bill would be moved to committee by Friday but that the full House would not take the issue up until September after it returns from its month-long break.

    Folks, its common & practical business sense that folks diagnosed & suffering from terminal cancer WILL NOT get new insurance policy. They more likely will get dropped from current coverage. This is happening now & will happen w/or w/out the obamacare.

    Health Care Reform a Misnomer – Along with Education Reform and Banking Reform. Lobbying to Establish a New Political Reality in the US

    Just in case you had any doubts that what the Obama administration is really up to, it is to establish a new political reality in the US rather than to reform what is in place.

    Carefully review the e-mail I received from Organizing for America today. OA is a part of the Democratic Party that brings members and interested parties together and organizes their efforts on behalf of the goals of the Democratic Party and of the Administration. It is a kind of lobby group.

    Organizing for America
    Organizing for America
    Jean —

    You’ve probably seen the headlines: Opponents of change are doing everything they can to delay health insurance reform. As a Republican strategy memo concluded, “If we slow this sausage-making process down, we can defeat it.”

    They’re betting that as time goes by, our energy will flag, our movement will weaken, and they’ll ultimately be able to block any change.

    But they just don’t get it — thanks to the regular Americans who are reaching out in neighborhoods nationwide, our movement is expanding every day. In fact, over the weekend, we surpassed our big goal of 1 million people taking action for health insurance reform. And with your help, we’ll keep growing and prove that our opponents’ strategy of “delay, delay, delay” simply won’t work.

    So I want to ask you for something unusual: Can you chip in $1 each day until we pass real health insurance reform? A huge response will show the insurance companies and their allies in Congress that their delay tactics will only make our movement stronger.

    Chip in a dollar a day

    Here’s how it works: We’ll bill your credit card for 30 days’ worth of donations now and once a month until the President signs real health insurance reform into law.

    The cost of inaction on health insurance reform is astounding. Every day, 14,000 more Americans lose their coverage. Premiums continue to rise at three times the rate of wages. And each day, more small businesses are forced to choose between covering their employees and keeping their doors open.

    But that doesn’t stop our opponents from trying to bog down the process with legislative tricks. And at the same time, they’re attacking the President for “moving too fast,” even though Washington has been talking about the need for comprehensive health insurance reform since the days of Harry Truman!

    What they don’t realize is that outside of Washington, our campaign keeps growing. We’ve reached our “million” milestone, but the stories behind that number are even more impressive: grassroots press conferences with small-business owners in Missouri, more than 1,200 people at an organizing meeting in Minnesota, huge events outside local Senate offices in Florida, and so much more.

    That’s why our dollar-a-day campaign is so important: If the few senators and representatives who are opposing reform understand that dragging their heels makes us stronger every day — and that the grassroots pressure on them will increase — they’ll be far less willing to keep slowing down the process.

    Health Care Reform a Misnomer – Along with Education Reform and Banking Reform. Lobbying to Establish a New Political Reality in the US

    Just in case you had any doubts that what the Obama administration is really up to, it is to establish a new political reality in the US rather than to reform what is in place.

    Carefully review the e-mail I received from Organizing for America today. OA is a part of the Democratic Party that brings members and interested parties together and organizes their efforts on behalf of the goals of the Democratic Party and of the Administration. It is a kind of lobby group.

    Jean –

    You’ve probably seen the headlines: Opponents of change are doing everything they can to delay health insurance reform. As a Republican strategy memo concluded, “If we slow this sausage-making process down, we can defeat it.”

    They’re betting that as time goes by, our energy will flag, our movement will weaken, and they’ll ultimately be able to block any change.

    But they just don’t get it — thanks to the regular Americans who are reaching out in neighborhoods nationwide, our movement is expanding every day. In fact, over the weekend, we surpassed our big goal of 1 million people taking action for health insurance reform. And with your help, we’ll keep growing and prove that our opponents’ strategy of “delay, delay, delay” simply won’t work.

    So I want to ask you for something unusual: Can you chip in $1 each day until we pass real health insurance reform? A huge response will show the insurance companies and their allies in Congress that their delay tactics will only make our movement stronger.

    Chip in a dollar a day

    Here’s how it works: We’ll bill your credit card for 30 days’ worth of donations now and once a month until the President signs real health insurance reform into law.

    The cost of inaction on health insurance reform is astounding. Every day, 14,000 more Americans lose their coverage. Premiums continue to rise at three times the rate of wages. And each day, more small businesses are forced to choose between covering their employees and keeping their doors open.

    But that doesn’t stop our opponents from trying to bog down the process with legislative tricks. And at the same time, they’re attacking the President for “moving too fast,” even though Washington has been talking about the need for comprehensive health insurance reform since the days of Harry Truman!

    What they don’t realize is that outside of Washington, our campaign keeps growing. We’ve reached our “million” milestone, but the stories behind that number are even more impressive: grassroots press conferences with small-business owners in Missouri, more than 1,200 people at an organizing meeting in Minnesota, huge events outside local Senate offices in Florida, and so much more.

    That’s why our dollar-a-day campaign is so important: If the few senators and representatives who are opposing reform understand that dragging their heels makes us stronger every day — and that the grassroots pressure on them will increase — they’ll be far less willing to keep slowing down the process.

    How to Make Health-Care Reform Bipartisan
    By BOBBY JINDAL

    In Washington, it seems history always repeats itself. That’s what’s happening now with health-care reform. This is an unfortunate turn of events for Americans who are legitimately concerned about the skyrocketing cost of a basic human need.

    In 1993 and 1994, Hillary Clinton’s health-care reform proposal failed because it was concocted in secret without the guiding hand of public consensus-building, and because it was a philosophical over-reach. Today President Barack Obama is repeating these mistakes.

    The reason is plain: The left in Washington has concluded that honesty will not yield its desired policy result. So it resorts to a fundamentally dishonest approach to reform. I say this because the marketing of the Democrats’ plans as presented in the House of Representatives and endorsed heartily by President Obama rests on three falsehoods.

    First, Mr. Obama doggedly promises that if you like your (private) health-care coverage now, you can keep it. That promise is hollow, because the Democrats’ reforms are designed to push an ever-increasing number of Americans into a government-run health-care plan.

    If a so-called public option is part of health-care reform, the Lewin Group study estimates over 100 million Americans may leave private plans for government-run health care. Any government plan will benefit from taxpayer subsidies and be able to operate at a financial loss—competing unfairly in the marketplace until private plans are driven out of business. The government plan will become so large that it will set, rather than negotiate, prices. This will inevitably lead to monopoly, with a resulting threat to the quality of our health care.

    Second, the Democrats disingenuously argue their reforms will not diminish the quality of our health care even as government involvement in the delivery of that health care increases massively. For all of us who have seen the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s response to hurricanes, this contention is laughable on its face. When government bureaucracies drive the delivery of services—in this case inserting themselves between health-care providers and their patients—quality degradation will surely come. House Democrats seem willing to accept that problem to achieve their philosophical aim—the long-term removal of for-profit entities from the health-care landscape.

    Third, Mr. Obama’s rhetoric paints a picture of a massive new benefit that will actually cost average Americans less than what they pay today. The Democrats want middle-class taxpayers to believe they won’t feel the pinch of this initiative, even as their employers are assessed massive new taxes. They might as well try to argue that up is down. The analysis of the Democrats’ proposal by the Congressional Budget Office shows that it will not reduce government spending on health care, and that it will substantially increase the federal deficit—and this despite all the tax increases.

    I served in the U.S. House with a majority of the current 435 representatives, and I am confident that if given the proper amount of legislative review, they will not accept the flawed Pelosi plan that is currently stuck in committee. Yet there is general agreement among Republicans and Democrats that we need health-care reform to bring costs down. This agreement can be the basis of a genuine, bipartisan reform, once the current over-reach by Mr. Obama and Mrs. Pelosi fails. Leaders of both parties can then come together behind health-care reform that stresses these seven principles:

    •Consumer choice guided by transparency. We need a system where individuals choose an integrated plan that adopts the best disease-management practices, as opposed to fragmented care. Pricing and outcomes data for all tests, treatments and procedures should be posted on the Internet. Portable electronic health-care records can reduce paperwork, duplication and errors, while also empowering consumers to seek the provider that best meets their needs.

    •Aligned consumer interests. Consumers should be financially invested in better health decisions through health-savings accounts, lower premiums and reduced cost sharing. If they seek care in cost-effective settings, comply with medical regimens, preventative care, and lifestyles that reduce the likelihood of chronic disease, they should share in the savings.

    •Medical lawsuit reform. The practice of defensive medicine costs an estimated $100 billion-plus each year, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, which used a study by economists Daniel P. Kessler and Mark B. McClellan. No health reform is serious about reducing costs unless it reduces the costs of frivolous lawsuits.

    •Insurance reform. Congress should establish simple guidelines to make policies more portable, with more coverage for pre-existing conditions. Reinsurance, high-risk pools, and other mechanisms can reduce the dangers of adverse risk selection and the incentive to avoid covering the sick. Individuals should also be able to keep insurance as they change jobs or states.

    •Pooling for small businesses, the self-employed, and others. All consumers should have equal opportunity to buy the lowest-cost, highest-quality insurance available. Individuals should benefit from the economies of scale currently available to those working for large employers. They should be free to purchase their health coverage without tax penalty through their employer, church, union, etc.

    •Pay for performance, not activity. Roughly 75% of health-care spending is for the care of chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes—and there is little coordination of this care. We can save money and improve outcomes by using integrated networks of care with rigorous, transparent outcome measures emphasizing prevention and disease management.

    •Refundable tax credits. Low-income working Americans without health insurance should get help in buying private coverage through a refundable tax credit. This is preferable to building a separate, government-run health-care plan.

    These steps would bring down health-care costs. They would not bankrupt our nation or increase taxes in the midst of a recession. They are achievable reforms with bipartisan consensus and public support. All they require is a willingness by the president to slow down and have an honest discussion with Americans about the real downstream consequences of his ideas. Let’s start there.

    KarmaHD Rant For the Day.

    I am beyond curious on how did the Obama come away with or pull off the talk of comprimise on the Health bill?? Pelosi, and the gang of dobadders, (Bushism) needed to distract the stagnation of the progress on the health bill, so what do they do, shine a little ass, stroke a few egos, GIVE THEM CASH, of course at the $10000 limit allowable in there PAC’S without fear of audit.

    So, SUMMARY: The health bill was not moving, and the blue dogs moved away from the pack to play politics, they wanted something in return for the risk of stepping up to passing the bill. Obama was sinking and sinking fast, he was getting some heat, he needed to change the perception. The Bama media machine with the cooperation of the majority of the house, and the corralling of the blue dogs, had to develop a success before the break, so everyone caved, the counter message is not been strong, this is a victory for the Obama Machine!

    These guys have to be home for the summer break right in front of the people who put them in office, time for them to measure and hedge their bets, and figure out some type of dialog to spin to the people. Another key, is this buys Obama time to work his Chicago Politics on the moderate democrats. The real SUMMARY, this is a crack in the door, I do hope the opposing party steps up to the fight!!

  40. LisaInTX says:

    I emailed the Blue Dog Coalition to beg them to read the Constitution and refresh their memories of the Bill of Rights BEFORE signing another bill!!

    The opposing party has no choice but to step in to fight. The democrats are up against the ropes. Yellow dogs are probably declaring themselves as blue dogs. Some democrat politicians are afraid to open their offices. Folks dont knows who yellow or blue…. all they see is that big “D”. When a democrat goes on the stump, he or she will distinguish themselves as Blue dog or conservative – loud & pronounced.

    I doubt seriously that the obamaplan will pass.

    Foxnews – Hannity was very interesting. One of his guest said that what hurt Obama 2 events when folks put them together:
    1. Obama’s nominating Sotomayor who made racist statement (wise latino woman vs. white male); &
    2. Obama defending Skip Gates race baiting.

    Watch the blogs on the net. I have found more folks still ranting on the “Skip-Gate”. You will also find more folks are ratcheting up the birth certificate story. Even Fox gave the story some air-time.

    Folks all this will bleed into the town hall meetings. Just imagine the t-shirts & signs at the rallies ?

    Americans for Prosperity

    Joined by hundreds upon hundreds of grassroots activists, we greeted President Obama with our Patients First bus at 4pm today in Bristol, Virginia.

    Sadly, the President repeated his usual untruths: that bureaucrats will not “get between patients and their doctor”; that government control of health care will “SAVE MONEY”; and that his government takeover will make health care “more efficient.”

    But, we were there to send the President and the national media a clear message that Americans are not buying what he’s trying to sell.

    Today, you may have heard that the so-called “Blue Dog” Democrats in the House of Representatives cut a deal with Speaker Pelosi and the Obama Administration on the health care legislation.

    Don’t be discouraged. These same “Blue Dogs” caved on the Stimulus bill back in February. Most of them caved on the Cap-and-Trade bill a few weeks ago. We expected them to cave here, too.

    The key thing to remember: when they say “compromise” legislation on health care, they still mean a big-government takeover of our health care and we have to say NO.

    I wish you could see the energy and passion and determination of the Americans we see on this Patients First bus tour. We were in Wytheville, VA at 4pm yesterday, then Bristol, Gate City, Norton and then back to Bristol this afternoon to greet the President. The crowds are big at each stop.

    One lady in Wytheville was there with her 96-years-young father, and she told me that “no government bureaucrat is going to tell me how to care for my Dad’s health.” An elderly lady raised her hand at our Norton event and said “it’s like they want us to feel guilty for wanting to keep our health care.”

    At the President’s stop in Raleigh, North Carolina today our AFP North Carolina state director had over 400 folks at a counter-rally that was widely covered. The President even mentioned the signs and folks protesting on the other side!

    Next week, we’ll have 2 AFP Patients First buses going – one in North Carolina making 21 stops and another in Nebraska making 19 stops. Across America, we’re saying “Hands Off My Health Care!”

He is moving on all fronts – has to – to recast the entire government. We need to stop at this state; look back, comment and look for clues to the way future legislation will be presented and rammed through. And when it is all over – we need to curb some of the power of the executive branch. Wonder how he will “reform” the military?

    Officers Run Background Check On Obama; Placed On Leave

    Posted: 6:55 pm EDT July 29, 2009Updated: 7:22 pm EDT July 29, 2009
    DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — Two DeKalb County police officers have been placed on paid administrative leave after an investigation revealed they ran a background check on President Barack Obama.

    A representative for the DeKalb County CEO’s office identified the officers as Ryan White and C.M. Route.

    Officials said Obama’s name was typed into a computer inside a DeKalb County police car on July 20 and ran through the National Crime Information Center.

    The secret service was immediately notified and contacted the DeKalb County Police Department.

    A representative said both officers have been with the department less than five years.

    A representative said one of the officers denied involvement.

    An official investigation is being conducted by the DeKalb County Police Department’s Internal Affairs division.

    It is unclear why the officers ran a check on the president.

    Carroll woman’s answer to highly visible Obama: Selling her televisions

    By

    Wednesday, July 29, 2009

    A 78-year-old Carroll woman says she’s so tired of seeing President Barack Obama on the airwaves that she’s selling her television sets – two of them.

    Deloris Nissen, a retired nurses’ aide and former Kmart employee who was raised on a farm near Audubon, placed a classified advertisement with The Daily Times Herald for Friday’s paper.

    In the $5.50 ad, Nissen tells readers she has two television sets for sale.

    The reason: “Obama on every channel and station.”

    In an interview Nissen said she is serious about selling two TVs – and genuine about her disgust with what she believes to be an overexposed president.

    “I just got tired of watching him on every channel,” Nissen said. “I thought, my gosh, does he ever stay at the White House?”

    Nissen, who voted for U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in the 2008 presidential election, said she could live with seeing Obama come on television to make serious announcements. But he seems to be on all the time, Nissen said.

    When the president does appear on a channel she happens to be watching, Nissen said, she quickly turns.

    “I have the remote real handy,” Nissen said. “I have the batteries. I’m ready for him.”

    Nissen’s annoyance with the president as a frequent presence on her television doesn’t mean she’ll abandon the medium altogether.

    She’s keeping a bigger flat-screen television and selling an older 20-inch Sony and possibly a 13-inch set.

    “It’s too heavy,” Nissen said of the 20-inch TV. “I can’t handle it anymore.”

    That said, she doesn’t plan on selling it for less than $100 – even if Obama was just on Tuesday pitching his health-care-reform plans.

    Obama’s own advisers and political observers across the ideological spectrum have for months debated whether the now popular president is overexposed.

    For her part, Nissen said she expects to take some flack for the advertisement in her local paper. After all, Obama did win Iowa and Carroll County in the 2008 election.

    But she’s not worried about any criticism.

    “I’m an old lady, and I don’t care,” Nissen said.

    Support Slips for Obama’s Health Plan
    Obama push faces growing doubts in poll; Overhaul advances in House, Senate

    Support for President Barack Obama’s health-care effort has declined over the past five weeks, particularly among those who already have insurance, a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found, amid prolonged debate over costs and quality of care.

    In mid-June, respondents were evenly divided when asked whether they thought Obama’s health plan was a good or bad idea. In the new poll, conducted July 24-27, 42% called it a bad idea while 36% said it was a good idea.

    Among those with private insurance, the proportion calling the plan a bad idea rose to 47% from 37%.

    Declining popularity of the health-care overhaul reflects rising anxiety over the federal budget deficit and congressional debate over the most contentious aspects of the legislation, including how to pay for it. The poll also shows concern over the role of government in determining personal medical decisions.

    Trying to regain momentum, Obama is shifting his pitch to new consumer-protection rules for insurance companies, part of a bid to win over Americans who already have coverage.

    David Axelrod, one of the president’s top advisers, acknowledged that the White House’s months-long focus on controlling medical costs hasn’t worked. “Consumer protections are a lot more tangible,” he said.

  69. tellitlikeitis says:

    Sure Sam, Obama wants a civilian army just like the SS Adolph Hitler had in Germany.

    New Jobless Claims Rise More Than Expected to 584,000

    WASHINGTON — The government said the number of newly laid-off workers filing first-time claims for jobless benefits rose last week, though the increase was mostly due to seasonal distortions.

    The Labor Department said new claims for unemployment insurance increased by 25,000 to a seasonally adjusted 584,000, above analysts’ estimates of 570,000.

    A department analyst said the increase comes after claims were artificially lowered earlier this month by the timing of auto factory shutdowns, which happened earlier this year than usual.

    Another NFL Team Says No to Michael Vick

    Another team turned down the opportunity to sign reinstated NFL quarterback Michael Vick.

    Washington Redskins coach Jim Zorn told the media his team wouldn’t sign Vick “at this juncture.”

    The Redskins join a long list of teams — including the New York Giants, Jets and Dallas Cowboys — that have said they don’t want Vick after he served 18 months in federal prison for running a dogfighting ring.

    He was released from home confinement July 20 and conditionally reinstated by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday, after an indefinite

    Good Morning VF, I brought you all some fresh news of the day. Looks like Obama is going down in flames. What a shame. lol

    Looks like the Obamacrats are waking up.

  77. SamHenry says:

    Hi guys. I saw this when it was live and anchor Tony made faces about some off camera comment about the police officer. He is not a good reporter he is a good reactor and to ask his colleague to tell his own experience with racial profiling – well that’s the limit. They are not being reporters.

    When I heard Obama invite the two principals in the LOCAL hoorah for a beer at the picnic table I thought: “August – picnic table -Washington DC – is he nuts? Obama just can’t get scripted properly. This presidency is just a mess and I am tired of getting up every day and finding more of it all over the land.

    Tellit and Sami – I think the WH has played cool with this civilian army thing. They want only the blogs to deal with it.

    Daily Presidential Tracking Poll
    Thursday, July 30, 2009

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 28% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -12. That’s the lowest rating yet recorded for President Obama (see trends).

    Forty-nine percent (49%) now say that America’s best days have come and gone. Just 38% believe they are still to come. Thirty-four percent (34%) say the country is heading in the right direction. Seventy-five percent (75%) want the Federal Reserve to be audited.

    Scott’s Page, available to Premium Members, takes a look at shifting perceptions among white and black, conservative and liberal Democrats since the President’s press conference last week.

    The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update). Updates also available on Twitter.

    Overall, 48% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. That is the lowest level of total approval yet recorded for this President. Fifty-one percent (51%) now disapprove. A plurality of voters now believe the President views American society as unfair and discriminatory.

    It is important to remember that the Rasmussen Reports job approval ratings are based upon a sample of likely voters. Some other firms base their approval ratings on samples of all adults. President Obama’s numbers are always several points higher in a poll of adults rather than likely voters. That’s because some of the President’s most enthusiastic supporters, such as young adults, are less likely to turn out to vote.

    Just 23% believe health care costs will go down if health care reform is passed. Most (53%) expect prices would rise and 50% expect the quality of care would decline.

    Republicans retain a slight edge on the Generic Congressional Ballot and most voters still have an unfavorable opinion of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

    Fifty-four percent (54%) now say interest rates will be higher in a year. That’s a 20-point jump since April.

    For more measures of the President’s performance, see Obama By the Numbers and recent demographic highlights from the tracking polls..

    If you’d like Scott Rasmussen to speak at your meeting, retreat, or conference, contact Premiere Speakers Bureau. You can also learn about Scott’s favorite place on earth or his time working with hockey legend Gordie Howe.

    When comparing Job Approval data from different firms, it’s important to keep in mind that polls of likely voters and polls of all adults will typically and consistently yield different results. In the case of President Obama, polls by all firms measuring all adults typically show significantly higher approval ratings than polls of likely voters. Polls of registered voters typically fall in the middle. Other factors are also important to consider when comparing Job Approval ratings from different polling firms.

    A Fordham University professor has rated the national pollsters on their record in Election 2008. We also have provided a summary of our results for your review.

    Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. The margin of sampling error—for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters–is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Results are also compiled on a full-week basis and crosstabs for full-week results are available for Premium Members.

    Like all polling firms, Rasmussen Reports weights its data to reflect the population at large (see methodology). Among other targets, Rasmussen Reports weights data by political party affiliation using a dynamic weighting process. While partisan affiliation is generally quite stable over time, there are a fair number of people who waver between allegiance to a particular party or independent status. Over the past four years, the number of Democrats in the country has increased while the number of Republicans has decreased.

    Our baseline targets are established based upon separate survey interviews with a sample of adults nationwide completed during the preceding three months (a total of 45,000 interviews) and targets are updated monthly. Currently, the baseline targets for the adult population are 39.0% Democrats, 32.5% Republicans, and 28.5% unaffiliated. Likely voter samples typically show a slightly smaller advantage for the Democrats.

    A review of last week’s key polls is posted each Saturday morning. Other stats on Obama are updated daily on the Rasmussen Reports Obama By the Numbers page. We also invite you to review other recent demographic highlights from the tracking polls.

    My response to a non-blogger drive by comment just made…

    Obama was the Character Assassin who characterized a Police Officer and the Entire Cambridge Police Department as Stupid… and used it as an excuse to Profile “Police” meaning ALL POLICE as racists.

    Well… Obama and his rabid Socialist Pal Gates got it snapped off in their asses over it.

    The President’s Poll numbers dropped immediately after his stunt and the drop remains. Obama was supposed to be a “Post Racial” President and he projected that during his campaign. With that statement of Obama’s he clarified he sees the world through Race Colored Glasses… thus does not identify with All Americans regardless of race, rather he has picked a side and stands against the Majority of Americans who are not a minority race.

    Colin Powell supported Obama because of Race… and now Colin Powell is seeing he sold out to a Socialist. Too Bad for Powell; he gets to lay in the Socialist Wet Spot now… having served his purpose of Race Politics.

    And, BTW, NA, I am a mixed race minority… Western European/Native American.

    Comment:
    This site saya that the president was calling all police racist. Unfortunately, who ever write that line is a political charecter assasinator. He < the President , only stated the the particualar police acted stupidly by arresting someone that is in there own house not in the act of commiting a crime and with valid ID. If that happens to anyone, I am pretty sure they would be insulted if they were hand cuffed and drag out of their own residence. If that happen to you and ,you are a police, a you used that to your advatage and they still arrested you for being an inpersonator……at some piont you have to fell violated. This was not a prank joke. Police have been know to kill people by asficsation for only resisting unlawful detention by officers. This could have gooten out of control and did. I am glad to see that they are reaching out to each other and resolving the differences. The public needs to earn the trust of the people who are paid to protect them, ecspecially involving
    ethical understanding…..Ecc. 4;1-2

    Socialist Wet spot. Ahahahahahahaha, you are way too funny. roflmao, tears running down my face. Ahahahahaha, ….. 😉

  89. SamHenry says:

    VF and Tellit – I fear we are hurtling down toward a big bog of racial quagmire from which we may never recover. The President “authorized” or “sanctioned” this by his unqualified support of his friend, Professor Gates. He gave the disclaimers “he is a friend and so I guess that makes me prejudiced; the facts are not all in so perhaps should not say anything BUT – and then went on to support his friend and throw the Cambridge police under the bus.

    It is the President of America who has started a chapter of race war in this country that is coming at a time when people are already anxious about life here and so many are home without work – ripe for getting involved in an issue that could buzz out of control.

    Our best hope could have been for an unannounced meeting at the White House today. As it is, this is just a photo op before the war begins.

    Stop that laughing Sami or there will be a conservative wet spot!

  91. tellitlikeitis says:

    Vf, This should not be a surprise to anyone. Obama does look at the world through race colored glasses. I fear his presidency will take racial relations back 40 years. This information was available during the election and people chose to ignore it. The video I posted “shocking Obama Words.” backs up what I say here and tells it all about race and Obama..

  92. samiam60 says:

    Sad to say that there is a network out there encouraging folks to submit comments on how they were victims of Racial Profiling. They are also recruiting stories on Black in America parts one and two. This seems to only give a stage for racial rants and bring the simmering heat of racism to a boiling point imo.

  93. samiam60 says:

    Hence we are hearing now about a Civilian National Security “Force”. Is the stage being set by our own President?

  94. samiam60 says:

    This should make him Impeachable !

  95. tellitlikeitis says:

    Sam, It seems since Obama was elected you can’t escape articles and discussions on race and it’s the liberal press that is keeping it in the news. Maybe it’s a good thing to discuss race but it doesn’t dominate my life. Obama has become the divider president but that fits into the grand scheme of things for him because you have to divide a people before you can conquer them.

  96. samiam60 says:

    Well spoken Tellit.

  97. tellitlikeitis says:

    Civilian national security force? Is there something happening with that now? new news for today? where ?
