Skip to comments.David Brooks : "We've Elected Another Riverboat Gambler,"
Posted on 03/14/2010 10:55:44 AM PDT by RobinMasters
Hey Dave, the only biggers Gamblers are the people who voted for Obama on Election Day.
Brooks: The White House has said we're all in, they're betting their whole Presidency on getting this thing passed...It's very easy to see how this thing goes down...What strikes me at the end of the day is that we've elected another riverboat gambler, President Obama is risking his Presidency on a 50/50 chance, would you risk your house on a 50/50 chance? I wouldn't"

Brooks you are just a whore. And stupid to boot.
It makes me ill when the MSM puts on Brooks, Nancy Grahamnesty and other limp-wristed RINOs at the “conservative” POV.

What do you mean “we” kimosabe?
First they came for the Unborn...granny & gramps your next.

Code Red - House Target List on Health Care
The National Republican Congressional Committee has published a target list on health care. In addition to continuing to contact the five Tennessee Democrat Congressmen, you can go http://www.votervoice.net/link/clickthrough/ext/94697.aspx to contact some of these targets. Much of the talk following Obamas announcement has focused on how to defeat this second bill through reconciliation, but that is misleading because the first step to defeating Obamacare is not by concentrating on defeating the fixer bill but by defeating the Senate bill in the House when it goes to the floor for an up-or-down vote on Thursday, March 18th.

And here are toll-free numbers we can use to call any Senators or Reps.
At the first number below you must wait through a tape recording urging you to tell your Rep or Senator to vote yes for the health care bill. Just hang on and when the recording is over, you will get the Capitol operator. Just ask for your Rep or Senators office. Then you will either talk to an aid or have the chance to leave a message for him/her to vote NO on the health care bill.
When you use the second number and the Capitol operator comes on, just ask for your Rep or Senators office. Every time I use this number I get the Rep or Senators answer machine, so it may be set up that way all the time...to go to their answer machine. Either way you can leave a message to vote NO on the health care bill!
We need to use these toll free numbers that have been set up for the health care/ BO supporters and illegals to use! After all they are FREE!
Even if Zer0 fails at Marxist-Care, he’s still present and can then fail at immigration “reform” and Climate Change.
Brooks is particularly bad as the so-called conservative on the Jim Lehrer show. He agrees quite often with his liberal opponent Democrat Mark Shields.
Watch out also for up-and-coming RINO Mike Gerson, former chief speechwriter for President Bush. “Compassionate conservative” Gerson filled in for Brooks the other day and blasted Jim Bunning for his heroic stand on the Senate floor against big government spending.
Gerson will never take the true conservative Tea Party limited government position. He is forever wedded to No Child Left Behind and the Medicare drug entitlement — two infamous Leviathans of the budget-blowing Bush presidency.
Yes, but we are all paying the consequences for that gamble, even those of us who didn't vote for him or sat on their butts and allowed Obama to win. We are not immune from the Obama presidency's calamities and his policies of destruction.
He considers himself, nonetheless, a "political philosopher." How special, David.
He’s what passes for a token conservative at the NY Times. Compared to those around him he passes for a conservative.
It is “surprising” how many so called NYT style conservatives were blindsided by Obama. They were so intelligent that they ignored all the warning signs.
Brooks is a joke and should be treated as such.
another Old York Times pro-abortion conservative who votes straight Dem Ticket.

I am not sure barry even wants to win a second term..why would he? Being President is hard work. Its not all basketball, celebrities signing your autograph book, and nightly parties.. (oh wait)...he will go straight onto the $500,000 per speech carpetbagger tour. People will be on their knees to worship him for the rest of his life if he loses the election..if he stays in for the full 8 he might make all his zombies even realize he is a joke.
I am thinking he wants to enslave us on the healthcare, and whatever else he can, and coast out after one term...
“...another riverboat gambler...”
I’m too lazy to read the entire article.
Who was the other one(s)?
