WASHINGTON (AFP) President Barack Obama vowed Saturday to salvage his health reform drive and crusade for change despite a "blizzard" of opposition, as he left a snow-buried White House to rally wavering Democrats.
Obama motorcaded through deserted Washington streets during a historic winter storm to fire up a party rocked by panic and disaffection after the president's reform drive hit a roadblock ahead of mid-term polls in November.
"(It's) good to be among friends. So committed to the future of this party and this country ... a blizzard ... Snowmageddon here in DC!" Obama told Democratic National Committee members hunkered down in a Washington hotel.
Obama sharply warned that he would not give up on his effort to pass health care reform through Congress, even though the loss of the Democratic Senate supermajority leaves his wavering party few easy options to enact it.
"Just in case there's any confusion out there, let me be clear. I am not going to walk away from health insurance reform," Obama said, in one of his most feisty speeches since his 2008 election campaign.
"I'm not going to walk away from the American people. I'm not going to walk away on this challenge. I'm not going to walk away on any challenge.'
On Friday, Obama admitted health care reform could die in Congress, and warned Democrats they would face the judgement of voters in November's mid-term congressional polls if they quit the fight on his top priority issue.
The remarks were seen by some observers as a sign that Obama was contemplating admitting a damaging defeat on health care, a view his comments on Saturday seemed to be designed to dispel.

That is OK you castoff whoreson bastard.
We vow to make you the Little Red Engine That Failed.
The MSM sold Obama to the American people now Obama cannot sell his programs. Yeah, the Democrats can blame Republicans but they are in charge. Democrats have controlled all spending for 3 years, now look at the size of the debt. They are spending like a bunch of people drunk on power.
Look at that soft, scrawny, effeminate hand.
What an utterly useless byblow.
That’s right, double down you ego maniac, you educated idiot. Burn even MORE bridges with the American electorate by attempting to cram this garbage down our throats after America has screamed NO! not now, not ever!
See how things go for you in November!
Keep on, your party will be down to ZERO.
He is a corpse man.
“I am not going to walk away from health insurance reform”
“I’m not going to walk away” etc..ad nauseum...
OK, after the American Majority is finished with you, you will be Crawling away like a Lame Duck President with 2 years to go.
Maybe you should watch some more Hitler Socialist movement black and white movies. Start Pounding your Fist, raise your voice a few octaves, and better rants than the one you gave in the SOTU speech.
Cowboy up BHOle, you got a long ways to go. Right now you’re all Boots and no Cattle.
Get lost, liar!
In other words the American people can pound sand.
HUH??? The Dems/Libs control Congress (had a Super Majority for almost a year), control most of the media, control most of academia (from public schools to colleges), control Hollywood...and this guy is still playing the underdog/victim card. BWHAHAHAHAHA. What a coward.
God is trying to give him hints by sending a tree branch onto his motorcade, yet the fool cannot pick up on the message.
