Obama to Address Health Care at Joint Session of Congress 9/9
Abc News ^ | 9/2/09 | ABC News

Posted on 09/02/2009 12:32:27 PM PDT by Shellybenoit

President Obama will address a joint session of Congress on Sept 9.

This comes as the White House has been signaling publicly that they are ready to take charge of the health care debate.

So, this settles the 5th of the 5 health care strategy questions I laid out earlier on this blog today. The other 4 remain.

- George Stephanopoulos

Do Republicans have to show up? If not, they should stage their own town hall with the American people, and put forth their plan, which involves tort reform and real competition for insurance companies involving allowing consumers to purchase it across state lines. No mandates, no public option - just a simple 2-3 page bill for now.

That's why he's going BACK to Martha's Vineyard today ...

NOT to vacation, but rather to work on a glorious speech with Jon Favreau and A-rod, praying that his slick lies will "fool 'em again," thereby saving his sorry ass from political oblivion ...

Photobucket

Sorry Barry ... it's WAY to late to feign bipartisanship and unity.

We live in very pivotal, but also dangerous time. Americans are waking up and threatening to depose these marxists who are trying to bring their "fundamental change". I believe we will have the numbers to do so starting in 2010 and then completing it in 2012.

I pray the leftists will see the folly in trying to do, or incite anything extra constitutional in hopes of avoiding it.

09/09/09 The mark of the beast, thinly disguised

Obama's mentor & pastor Jeremiah Wright was a supposedly 'deconverted' Nation of Islam member & still-devoted acolyte of Louis Farrakhan. I wonder what the date means under Calypso Louie's freaky 'Million Man' numerology?

” Will he be able to hypnotize congress? “

Naaahhh.. I’ve heard that to be hypnotized requires a brain..

Remember - “Congress is the only form of life with [hundreds of] stomachs, and no brain.” (Will Rogers)

That assertion has never been successfully refuted....

An excellent idea!

And Obama will get a huge public audience

How huge? Do you have a number? If he get less than 50 millions to watch then it is a shitty rating. Are you planning to watch? I am not and I have not watched TV news since November 5 2008.

OBAMA DOESN’T GET IT. EVERY TIME HE MAKES A SPEECH HIS RATINGS DROP AND HE JUST MANAGES TO GET BOTH SIDES PISSED OFF. HE SHOULD JUST GO AND HIBERNATE.

Obama will rise in popularity among his base and be seen as the great compromiser interested in the welfare of the people, especially the children.

OK, let us assume you are right and Obama will win a victory and impose socialized medicine on the country which will bankrupt the country. What shall we do next? surrender?

Understood that the polls support us. But the attention span of the average American is measured in seconds. And Obama will use fresh focus group language to fool and deceive. I see his approval ratings going up after the join meeting, but then decline again.

If there is to be a Republican response, they better make sure is is done in a packed hall with lots of ordinary folks (”Tea Party goers”) who can stand and cheer when Conservative points are made.

Just having a single speaker, Like Bobby Jindal, standing at a podium has a pathetic effect when compared to the splendor of a podium at the Capital floor.

I may or may not watch. I can’t stomach him, but I am also active in various protest groups and I want to know what I am confronting. I suspect he will draw arournd 30 million tops.

Could Obama go on TV and announce before Congress that he is declaring martial law because of a perceived public danger from right-wing extremist groups?

Sounds pretty wild, but from “Organizing for America” (Obama’s Campaign Organization)

Obama sent out notice to “grassroots” supporters to wage a coordinated phone campaign for health care by calling their US Senators on September 11.

“All 50 states are coordinating in this-as we fight back against our own Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists who are subverting the American Democratic Process, whipped to a frenzy by their Fox Propaganda Network ceaselessly re-seizing power for their treacherous leaders.”

Sounds like a basis for martial law to me.

“I am not and I have not watched TV news since November 5 2008. “

Same here.
