Skip to comments.The question that dogs Dems: What if Obama fails?

President Obama's strategy for closing on health care relies on blaming the insurance industry, reminding Americans that coverage is a problem and urging public opinion to shift momentum in Congress.
Not part of the equation: What if he loses?
"No Democrat wants to contemplate it and certainly no one in the administration, because the consequences are too frightful," said Stephen Hess, a presidential scholar at the Brookings Institution.
The White House this week is stepping up pressure on congressional Democrats in a final drive to get reform on the books. In two rallies this week, Obama is hoping to turn public opinion back his way.
Last week's largely foregone conclusion about the Democrats using a parliamentary maneuver to pass reform with simple majorities is looking increasingly difficult.
"This one he has to win," said Hess, who added he believes Obama will prevail. "He has backed himself into that position."

What do you mean what if?
It is a given. His shooting star is now on downward trajectory, just a matter of time.
That's the problem. He's an idiot and has put himself and his party in a no-win situation.
If Obama wins, America loses. I pray for his failure every day.
If it fails, the monster behind the mask is going to tear off the mask and get mean and vindictive as the devil he is.
Bigger question is why are the Democrats following a hard core communists insane child like nitwit. Are they blind or just the same nitwits.
Limbaugh is a bright guy.
Funny, I’ve never held the insurance companies responsible
for my health care. The whole class/corporate warfare thing
doesn’t play for me.
Then the Republic wins.
We can only hope and pray.
This President can’t win if the people stand up against him. If he gets what he wants and his policy fails, it is the people that will loose. It will have no effect on him personally but could ruin every family in the country.
15 years from now, they will try again. The Left always thinks that their plans will work "this time".
Obama fails=America wins!
Obama = Fail
Democrats just don’t realize it yet. I have to admit I will ENJOY the despair they will experience when they DO get it!
I don't want to see what this power-hungry Marxist will try to pull if he thinks he's gonna lose.
Actually, if he gets it passed it’s a win-win situation
for the hard core liberals. The nation is further engulfed
in socialism, AND the democrat party is purged of DINO
and old school democrats so radical and more fervent cadres
can then move in.
A lose-lose for the American people and way of life.
No “if” about it.
0bama loses either way. The Democrats are in a no win situation.
“In two rallies this week, Obama is hoping to turn public opinion back his way.”
Americans are done with the “rallies.” This isn’t Nazi Germany where Albert Speer can shine some spotlights for Der Fuhrer. More and more Americans are waking up for their stupor. The rallies aren’t swaying anyone in his favor. It is probably working the opposite.
