Obama to Dems: It's Harry Kiri or Nancy Kazi!

James Lewis
The White House has just demanded "a simple up-or-down vote" on National Medi-Grab. That's like telling diehard Japanese soldiers at the end of WWII to either stick a sword in your belly or fall on a hand grenade. You've got a real choice there! The Democrats are being invited to commit suicide one way or another. But will they march off that cliff? I don't think so. Politicians are not in the habit of killing their careers for the grandiosity of Obama.

I don't remember another president asking his party to commit suicide in one grand Gotterdammerung. Grand gestures are for opera. Politicians do love to preen and boast, but only when it's safe to do so. It's not safe anymore, not at all. The voters are watching, and taking down names.

The Obama presidency is all theater and no results. Anywhere. By now the Congressional Dems understand that in their bones. Even if they did jump off that cliff, it wouldn't do any good. It's suicide as pure theater.

So what we're seeing looks like the Alamo, but unlike brave Texans, some Congressional Dems are secretly planning to run away before Santa Ana's Mexican army heaves into sight. It looks like the Constitutional balance of powers may actually survive its biggest assault since FDR.

Phew. That looked close.

After Barry O got elected in 2008 in the biggest sucker-the-vote campaign ever, I wondered if maybe Abraham Lincoln was wrong after all. Maybe you can fool all the people all the time. It sure looked like it in Year I of Barry.

Now it looks like Lincoln's prophecy is winning the day. But why do we have to dance on the edge of disaster all the time? We should have seen Obama coming a mile away. The least experienced and the most egocentric president in US history was a bad, bad choice. While the Leftoid media are to blame as usual, it's high time for the more idiotic voters to grow up. They have share the blame.

Chalk up one for the good guys.
