White House nightmare persists
FT.com ^ | January 22 2010 | Edward Luce

Posted on 01/23/2010 8:22:56 AM PST by Mad Dawgg

At the end of Barack Obama’s worst week since taking power a year ago, the US president’s fortunes look set only to deteriorate over the coming days. Following the shock defeat of the Democratic candidate in Massachusetts on Tuesday, a move that deprived the president of his 60-seat super-majority in the Senate and left his legislative agenda in tatters, Mr Obama has just four days to reboot the system.

The US president had originally delayed next week’s State of the Union address to Congress in the hope he would get his signature healthcare reform bill enacted in time. That prospect, already waning, was killed dead by the voters in Massachusetts. A growing number of Democrats believe the nine-month effort could collapse altogether.

“White House nightmare persists”

That’s interesting, because the people have been living a nightmare since November 2008.

Kinda thinking about this.

Obama enjoyed destroying Hillary in the election and by not giving her VP.

Passing HIS healthcare was to be Phase 2 of that destruction.

Teaming Bush and Bubba in Haiti also appears to bear seeds of destruction.

He likes to destroy....trying the terrorists in NYC, the plane incident in NYC, his Hassan comments, his banker comments....

He's nuts...just plain nuts...totally destructive in nature.

His State of the Union??? Wouldn't be surprised if he cancels it for TV and just addresses Congress which is all that is required.

The Whitehouse nightmare will persist as long as the nightmare is in the Whitehouse.

Well, gosh. Yes, I see the logic. Pass the idea on to Obama. Who could possibly argue? That makes perfect sense.

If you’re a TOTALITARIAN!

Just to remind everyone that health care was stopped in its tracks in August and September by two things. Tea Party/Town Halls and Sarah Palin’s death panels. From that point Obama, the Dems, and the MSM were playing defense, and not at all well. But to quote Churchill, “This is not the end, nor is it the beginning of the end, but it is the end of the beginning. Take back the country one seat at a time.

I've actually been thinking about that quote a lot this week, and remembering back to when he said it, I thought to myself - I really don't have to hope he fails...I know he'll fail, because the ideology he stands for fails everywhere it's been tried.

As history has shown, it eventually takes force to foist the kind of crap he stands for upon a citizenry. He'd fail miserably at that too, because he'd be facing the worlds largest armed free people.

It’s too much. They are setting him up for lower expectations.

They know he was way too high, set to fail. You watch. Within a little bit they are going to be talking about his “miraculous comeback”.

And every lib member of the MSM is going to be gloating as they say it.

Unless, of course, we get blown up by some terrorist. Then all bets are off the table.

Wonder if by the time Jan 27th rolls around, the SOTU Address will be held behind closed doors and without benefit of TV cameras. Otherwise, it may have more noise (and jeering) than a dome NFL playoff game or a WWE event. It getting harder to find anyone (beyond Rahm and maybe his parents) who actually believes that Zero is doing much of anything right.

And to quote the Thug-in-chief: “When they push, push back twice as hard.” That’s exactly what Mass. did Tuesday in a beautiful maneuver to out-Alinsky Alinsky. The unambiguous message was “Uh, no, as a matter of fact, we’re NOT going to let you continue with your socialist takeover.” Like all bullies and thugs, we need to keep kicking him, even though he’s down. Show no mercy. It’s life or death.

Uh, I prefer to think of it as America’s nightmare persists... at least until 2012.

But that would not allow for a week of MSM adoration describing just how wonderful the reception of the event was (for no one outside of the politicos to see).

His State of the Union???

I watched his speech in Ohio yesterday. “Things are tough, but we’ll keep working for you, gonna pass that jobs bill.”

He’ll have the same delusional tone in the SU speech.

That was a great article!!! I LOVE seeing 0bozo & commie pig & his fellow demoRATs in a total disarray, meltdown, frothing at the mouth display. I have called my dimTurd rep Tim Walz MN-1 D, this week and openly mocked his vote & support for the health care debacle. I grew up in western Wisconsin, and so I going to call Ron Kind demTurd rep for that district and openly mock & ridicule his support for 0bozoCare. Plus he had published a glowing report a few weeks that touted all the "wonderful" (socialist) aspects of this debacle, and I will love mocking this to whatever poor slob who answers the phone for Ron Kind's office.

At a federal level, this is the greatest feeling since the 2004 elections.

I want 0bozo, his family, and the demoRATs, to fail at 100% of everything they try or even think about!!! Maybe then we can wipe the slate clean of demoRATs and restore our country to its original constitutional design.

Good points!!! I think the TEA party uprising and continued uprising has shaken the elitist oligarchy & the demoRATs & especially 0bozo the commie pig usurper, to their inner evil core. And of course, God bless Sarah Palin!!!

Re: send “printed text”

yes, that’s what was done in the early years.... the constitutional requirement is for a report, not specified as oral and certainly not required to be a big public spectacle

I think Obamanation’s speechwriters are busy re-casting him as a populist railing against this week’s SCOTUS decision among other things..... since he can’t boast about health care “reform” (sic) he’ll probably make that just one element in a rant about eviiillll corporations etc.

How about “we won” or “don’t think we’re not keeping score brother” BO depends on the stupidity of the liberls that support him to keep him going. I think we will get some intereting information on his past that will begin to leak out in the not so distant future.
