Skip to comments.The Democrats: All Tied Up In Their Own Gordian Knot
Posted on 03/14/2010 11:22:44 PM PDT by Petro
What we are actually witnessing is mass stupidity and mass suicide by one political party -- something that has, to my knowledge, never been seen in American politics.

Occam needs to start sharpening his razor.
I only hope the Dem Party and their head Muslim immolate before the USA does.
They have caused terrible damage helped by people like Juan McCain and Graham-nesty. The RINOs who back McCain are as bad as Arlen Specter.
Someone who gets it at last. You should join the Beer Party. Ask me about this sometime.
Anyone remember how Rick Santorum got strong armed to support Specter and Bush also supported Specter? People dumped on Santorum for that.
We should know better by now. McCain is another Specter and Graham-nesty is worse than Specter.
No excuses for those supporting McCain. The only one who might get a pass in Scott BRown who suppoedly got $ from McCain. Money I sent stinking McCain for his POTUS race he threw for Soros. POS McCain.
And... Madame du Farge needs to continue her knitting...
I believe it was Napolean who said, “When your enemy is committing suicide, stay away.”
I'm afraid a razor is much too wimpy in todays situation, and that nothing less than a guillotine will do.
It’s been sharp, time to start cutting.
From your lips to God's ears. McCain is a sell out. Those who don't want to accept that fact are living in a fantasy world.
Very common-sense post. From the website:
“The Gordian Knot that the Democrats now find themselves in is the fact that they are damned if they do pass health care reform and they are damned if they don’t.
They are damned if they do because the bulk of Americans don’t want the plan as it is written. As a result, the political gurus are predicting heavy losses for them in the Fall elections.
They are damned if they don’t because their own political base would be turned off and they could suffer even bigger loses due to assumed voter apathy on the left; resulting in a poor turnout by their supporters in November.
This, then, could result in an “anti-Democrat” turnout with little or no “pro-Democrat” votes to offset it. It is for this reason that the Democrats think their losses could be even greater.
So, they have painted themselves into a corner.”
I’d add that if the Democrats somehow fail to pass this abomination, they will still suffer a backlash from the right, and an electoral bloodbath this Fall, because of the fact that they even tried such a bold and tyrannical move against The People.
No matter what happens with Obamacare from this point out, the right is going to go after the Dems with talons bared.
They truly are “damned if they do, and damned if they don’t”.
I like that ;-)
I believe Sun Tzu said something similar to that.
I think we're way beyond guillotines now...
When your enemy is committing suicide, hand them the means.
It would be quicker that way !
He said “Do not interfere when your enemy is making a mistake”
However, he said it about the British defences at Waterloo: Wellington had drawn up with his back to a forest (which would have made orderly retreat impossible): but there was also the matter of the reverse slope defences which Napoleon was not aware of, and which proved decisive.
So, if there’s a lesson from that quote, let’s just make sure the Dems don’t have any suprises for us.
They are not “stupid” They have judged that if they bet everything they will get this law enacted, Then they will have their Enabling Act. Even if they lose the elections this year they will be back to run their creation. The hordes of new bureaucrats will be hired even if the Congress is solidly Republican and those bureaucrats will necessarily be Big Governmentists i.e. Social Democrats. When the thing is fait accompli the elections after 2012 will be run on who can run the Health Care System more compassionately or more efficiently. The Democrats will win most of those elections, maybe all of them, certainly all of them if they get Amnesty, too. If they get HealthCare, Anesty should be easy.
"NO" needs to go to 216.
The very well-organized Susan B. Anthony List is running radio ads in Nine (9) Key Congressional Districts represented by Pro-Life Democrats. They are strongly urging those Congressmen to STAND FIRM and vote HELL NO on DeathCare.
