President Gives Senate Democrats a Pep Talk (barf)
New York Times ^ | August 4, 2009 | Robert Pear

Posted on 08/04/2009 2:01:11 PM PDT by reaganaut1

Democratic senators went to the White House on Tuesday to join President Obama in celebrating his 48th birthday and to plot strategy to pass a comprehensive health bill that would offer affordable insurance to nearly all Americans.

When Democratic leaders left the meeting, they gave a rosy, upbeat account of the lunch, which apparently featured a big dish of bipartisanship, along with salad and rockfish.

The Senate Democratic leader, Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, said there was “absolute unity” among members of the normally fractious Democratic conference.

...

The chairman of the Finance Committee, Senator Max Baucus, Democrat of Montana, described the luncheon as “an enthusiastic, comforting, warm reaffirmation, reconfirmation, that health care reform is necessary for the American people.”

...

“It was, really, a wonderful meeting, led by a terrific man, our president, Barack Obama,” Senator Baucus said. “One of the senators was saying to me as we walked out, ‘You know, it’s just so wonderful to hear him speak.’ You know, it’s like a symphony. It’s like just a great meal. It’s just all - - he is so good. He just has it together. He has all the right reasons.”

And they did eat cake at the meal, too. Senators said they sang “Happy Birthday” to the president, and that a chocolate birthday cake was served.

...

“The president didn’t get one standing ovation, but several of them,” Mr. Reid said. “He reminded me of the days when I was an athlete, and the coach was giving you a pep talk before the game. You came out of that pep talk that the coach gave you ready to take on the world. We’re ready to take on the world.”

This shilling was brought to you by the New York Times, one of many unofficial organs of the Democratic Party.

all going according to plan:

all going according to plan:

‘Change,’ for Alinsky, invoked radical socialism and meant the redistribution of wealth. [For] Obama [it] means the same, but by hiding the reference he avoids having to be explicit about the radical goal behind the theme.”

Some Key Alinsky Code Words

Change - Eliminating the free enterprise system and replacing it with socialism, and peacefully overthrowing the present government and replacing it with communism.

Community Organizer - One who (1) agitates by identifying and magnifying the real or imagined failings of the establishment as they supposedly apply to the target group, (2) organizes the target group into a political force, and (3) turns that force into “change”.

That pretty much sums it up. Sooner or later we will have a candidate that is not an enemy of America or its people.
