Some of Our Finest Hours

It’s hard to know if this really is the week when Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid finally get their way.

Regardless of outcome, these have been some of our finest hours.

From the Tea Parties which sprang to life last April, to the townhalls over the summer, to the voters in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts, tens of millions of Americans have done their best to stop this power grab.

Republicans in Congress also deserve credit. Against insurmountable numerical odds, they have stuck together and thereby forced Democrats to confront their own divisions.

Republicans from Eric Cantor to John Boehner to Paul Ryan to Mitch McConnell to John McCain to Scott Brown have given voice to the reality that Obamacare is not about health care, it is about government control over our lives accomplished through budget gimmicks which mask the truth that we cannot afford what Obama is selling.

The nation made an historic error in November 2008. Now we are dealing with the consequences.

The struggle will go on regardless of the vote this week. If Obamacare passes, it will be a multi-year effort to take back the Congress and then unwind or at least mitigate the disastrous effects. If we make it through the week without Obamacare passing, the fight also will continue. The goal of taking control of one-sixth of our economy is so alluring, that Obama cannot let it go.

Regardless of what this week holds, when we look back on the fight to preserve our health care system and our personal freedoms, we can say with confidence that these were some of our nation’s finest hours.

I agree with you Bill. This time since Obama was elected has been an awakening for many Americans: Independents, Republicans, and Democrats, who are now taking our liberty and the value of what we have at a level of seriousness not seen since we entered World War II.

I have never been more proud to be an American, and more proud of my fellow Americans who stand in opposition to the threat of unmitigated Socialism, than now.

God Bless America. We will not let her go. And, at the end of the day we will push back the Specter of Socialism with a full measure of determination and appreciation of the threat it poses to us all.

    What a wonderful tribute to the awakening of the American People. Howbeit win or lose concerning Obamacare the battle will continue until the soil from which this Great Nation Spang will once again be Free from the tyranny of the Progressive Socialist Movement. Let there be no mistake, be it our votes or by force, We the People shall take back our Government by any and all means. We are a Free People and no one will ever be able to take that from us.
    God Bless the United States of America.

    White House Ups Ante With New Criticism of Israel

    The White House is raising the stakes with Israel, calling it an “insult” and an “affront” that the Jewish nation would continue plans to build 1,600 new apartments during a construction freeze aimed at re-igniting peace talks with Palestinians.

    WASHINGTON — The White House is raising the stakes with Israel, calling it an “insult” and an “affront” that the Jewish nation would continue plans to build 1,600 new apartments during a construction freeze aimed at re-igniting peace talks with Palestinians.

    Palestinians have not sought as part of their capital the area of northeast Jerusalem where the Jewish settlement of Ramat Shlomo resides, but the decision to announce construction plans just as Vice President Joe Biden was visiting the region led to strained meetings that continues past his return.

    Biden expressed his displeasure by showing up late to a dinner with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in order to issue a statement of condemnation.

    On Sunday, President Obama’s chief political adviser David Axelrod told ABC’s “This Week” that the move undermines the fragile effort to bring peace to the troubled region and called the timing of the announcement “very destructive.”

    Axelrod would not say what has been discussed in diplomatic talks but suggested the decision by Israel was “calculated to undermine” peace talks with the Palestinians. He added that because Israel is a special ally to the United States “for just that very reason that was not the right way to behave.”

    But White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Netanyahu’s apology on Sunday was a “good start” to rebuild trust, but more needs to be done.

    “I think what would be an even better start is coming to the table with constructive ideas for constructive and trustful dialogue about moving the peace process forward,” Gibbs said.

    “There’s no doubt that events like last week weaken the trust that’s needed for both sides to come together and have honest discussions about peace in the Middle East. So there’s no doubt that that was not a bright spot for the Israeli government.”

    The State Department on Friday outlined what was described as a stern 45-minute call by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to the prime minister. The unusually tough dressing down reportedly took Netanyahu by surprise. On Sunday he announced plans to set up a committee to review processes to ensure an embarrassment like the one with Biden doesn’t happen again.

    Though Netanyahu had not included East Jerusalem in an earlier decision to halt construction for 10 months, the Jerusalem District Planning and Building committee canceled two meetings scheduled for this week after Clinton’s call, Haaretz newspaper reported Sunday.

    Very passionate summation from Bill Jacobson.

    There is a sad thing. Apart from the smarts and bravery and drive of American people. This whole ordeal has also shown us how our system of law can be distorted and circumvented by purely evil people. And we are currently powerless to strike them down using lawful means.

  5. VotingFemale says:

    What you say is true, M2. We have operated according to gentleman’s rules for decades.

    All it took was for a bastard like Obama to come along and crap on that… and it started with his insistence in moving into Blair House ahead of schedule… which Bush denied.

    This guy plays with no rules and like OJ Simpson, Obama’s day is coming.

    I put this in the league of Pearl Harbor and 911.

    And we all know the reaction and final outcome to those two events.

    The have our full and undivided attention. The Texas Schoolbook Showdown might not have happened otherwise.

    They will pay their political dues in spades… a full measure.

    Foxwood, this Slaughter Solution appears to be the scheme the Socialists will use to get around the impasse that the House Democrats don’t trust the Senate Democrats.

    And if they use it, it will go to the Supreme Court who will rule the passage of ObamaCare unconstitutional.

    There will be a fight like all hell.

    Good Morning Everyone!

    At least there is no war going on this morning on the comment log. That is a bright spot.

    Morning VF, I missed most of Fox and Friends because of the time change. I see HHS, Kathleen S. says it will pass this week.

    I am a mixture of fear, anxiety and frustration and a bit of anger at the Democrats.

    Really, how can they pass it with this so-called Slaughter rule. That seems even more despicable than using Reconcilliation.

    I thought they couldn’t go any lower, but I guess I am surprised everytime.

  14. VotingFemale says:

    Good Morning M2!

    Fox and Friends was not very robust today… that is not surprising for a Monday morning.

    A few interesting comment about Gibbs’ and Axelrod’s attitude of confidence yet they don’t have the votes.

  15. VotingFemale says:

    The Socialists’ “We Can’t Just Do Nothing’ meme is disgusting…

    They are the ones who created this F’ing monstrosity of a government take over…

    IF the Socialists did nothing it would be a blessing to the country.

    They think that voters will swallow this crap sandwich because of the lollipops and ignore the destruction to the economy…

    That has always been their modus operandii

    sugar coat a crap sandwich

    Haaa!!! I just saw a headline on a yahoo homepage with Arlen Spector for the photo feature, and it said “The Country that Congress Loves to Hate”

    and yeah. I was like, ‘really Yahoo? that’s ballsy, awesome’…

    but I clicked and it’s – CHINA.

    Uh huh.
    Congress may hate it, but Obama loves China. During the campaign he said we needed “infrastructure like China”!

    crumbling chemical hazardous, disastrous infrastructure I guess.
    Of course Obama loves China because they are Communist …

    You don’t have Chairman Mao Balls on your Christmas Tree for the hell of it…

  18. m2 says:

    I seriously thought those ornaments were plants… but given Obama’s love of himself, I think it might have been real.

    Will we have and Obama blasted into Rushmore by 2012???

  19. m2 says:

    here’s a funny story… we went to church yesterday and we haven’t been for awhile due to weather and laziness in dealing with weather…

    So anyway, some guy (a white guy), comes up to the “wood” podium to say a reading from the Gospel (catholic faith here)… so anyway, he’s all reading, everyone is all quiet…

    And Elena is like, “Look it’s Barack Obama!”

    Like seriously.
    That is how Fuhrer-like Obama has become with his television appearances. Remember how we used to never see the Presidents unless it was something critical?

    But those Marxist thugs love to campaign and be seen… and now my 2 and a half year old equates a man at a podium to Barack Obama!!

    Escandalo!!!

  20. VotingFemale says:

    The Mao Ball/s were not removed… even when it hit the blogs and news outlets.

    ha ha ha… I know. Kids like to say his name too. Much to my chagrin.

    I never taught her his name, but back when people still thought he was going to heal the planet and slow the tides… they had that infomercial on “Barack Obama Commemorative Plates” that ran every 15 minutes in a commercial break.

    That’s where she learned his name.

    Well I got to get to doing some stuff here.. I’ll bbs!
