Skip to comments.(Vanity) A Simple Bipartisan Proposal on ObamaCare, for the Blue Dog Dems

Rush Limbaugh made an impassioned speech on his show today, laying out the real situation facing the Blue Dog Democrats.
He said that they can vote for the Socialized Medicine Bill, and please Nancy Pelosi for the moment, and face the wrath of their constituents -- probably losing re-election;
they can vote against the Socialized Medicine Bill, and likely win re-election, but remain on the bad side of the House leadership.
He added that Nancy Pelosi does not like the Blue Dogs, since they are not ideologically pure enough for her, and would be glad enough to have them out of her caucus.
I have a simple idea which may help those Blue Dogs who fear to vote against Nancy Pelosi's wishes; at the same time, it will serve as an EXCELLENT example of true bipartisanship at this time of heightened tensions.
Nancy Pelosi does not want these people in her caucus; well, do they want HER to lead THEIR caucus?
Let's get some of the GOP conservatives to meet with the Blue Dogs -- can they agree to vote as a bloc to vote for a new Speaker of the House, and replace Nancy Pelosi? Say, with a CENTRIST democrat?
This ought to be easy to defend against the charges of "extremism" -- after all, the Blue Dogs were hand-picked by Rahm Emmanuel. And it ought to be easy to point out the actual district which Nancy Pelosi represents is a little to the left of the mainstream for this country.
Just a thought.
She will be gone after 2010 so why worry about the Pinko Skank?
If bluedogs have the power so many claim they have they shouldn’t worry about the dem leadership. It’s the leadership who will have to accommodate them, not the other way around.
I think they ought to leave the RAT party and defect to the Republican Party.
I have already called Erik Paulsen's office and Michele Bachmann's, as I live in Minnesota.
Then I called Mike Pence's office just for the thrill of it.
Can we get other people to push for this at the grass roots? Wars are won by going on the offense.
like your idea, but they will have to pry the position out of her cold, rigor-mortised clenched fist.
Maybe this effort could be enhanced by bringing to light (again) her ethics problems and alleged crimes.
Thanks for the ping!
I don’t have time to listen to Rush anymore, but I luv him!
