Posted on 03/01/2010 12:50:10 PM PST by Justaham
These must be really desperate times for the Democrats, if the syndicated Chris Matthews Show is any indication, as both the host and one of the guests claimed Barack Obama would need to tap into both military and mystical powers to get a health care reform bill passed. During the intro of his show Matthews postulated that Obama "must ow lead the band with all the music and magic he has in him," and guest panelist Michael Duffy, of Time magazine, reported that Obama is going to unleash "the infantry, the air cover, the artillery" on Congress to get health care passed.
The following exchanges were aired on the February 28 edition of The Chris Matthews Show:
CHRIS MATTHEWS DURING INTRO: Party time! After 13 months of whispering and wooing across the aisle, the President must now win with those on his side. He must rally the Democrats to pass health care because they are all he's got. He must now lead the band with all the music and magic he has in him. Selling victory. To win his biggest test, one he set himself, the President must convince his people the prize is worth the pain. He must teach the deepest of all truths, that it's what you do with what you've got.

He had to summon all his music and magic to pass first grade.
Affirmative Action did the rest.
Musical magic negro time folks. Is this the 21st Century Mistrel Show are what? My money is on Sammy Davis, Jr, and the Candy Man. I know its the wrong century but it does cover the redistributive waterfront.

“Matthews: Obama Must Summon All His “Music and Magic” to Pass Health Care”
Does this sound racist to anyone but me?
Obozo cannot. He has been disenchanted.
Give Obama your hat and cane, Pissy, so he can perform his shuck and jive act one more time.
In case you haven’t noticed, people have long since walked away from the lying minstrel man.
Why would anyone need to resort to ‘music and magic’ if their proposed idea was so good?
Chrissy is just pining for a new thrill in his shorts, new tingles.
You got trouble in River City!!!

Under this option, TFL would not cover any of the first $525 of an enrollees cost-sharing liabilities for calendar year 2011 and would limit coverage to 50 percent of the next $4,725 in Medicare cost sharing that the beneficiary incurred. (Because all further cost sharing would be covered by TFL, enrollees could not pay more than $2,888 in cost sharing in that year.) http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/99xx/doc9925/12-18-HealthOptions.pdf http://www.vawatchdog.org/09/hcva09/hcva110609-1.htm Bill Would Restrict Veterans Health Care Options 11/06/09 Buyer and McKeon Offer Amendments to Protect Veterans and TRICARE Beneficiaries Congress plans to block Tricare fee increases http://www.armytimes.com/news/2009/10/military_tricarefees_blocked_100709w http://www.navytimes.com/news/2009/10/military_tricarefees_blocked_100709w/ By Rick Maze - Staff writer, Oct 7, 2009 Tricare fee increases imposed last week by the Defense Department will be repealed by a provision of the compromise 2010 defense authorization bill unveiled Wednesday by House and Senate negotiators. Snip The fee increases were announced on Sept. 30 and took effect on Oct. 1, but the defense bill, HR 2647, includes a provision barring any fee increases until the start of fiscal 2011. Snip Retired Army Maj. Gen. Bill Matz, president of the National Association for Uniformed Services, said the announcement of fee increases was shocking considering that the Obama administration promised earlier this year to hold off on any new fee Tricare fee increases until fiscal 2011. President Obama and DoD assured NAUS and the entire military family earlier this year that there would rightly be no increases in any Tricare fees in fiscal 2010, Matz said. We took them at their word, and I cant believe that a co-pay increase like this was allowed to go forward, he added.
you mean “Smoke and mirrors”
If he’s hearing voices, he should be impeached.
Is Matthews bring up that Magic Negro thing again?
