Wait ... is he trying to sabotage his health care plan?
“The president will refuse to make fund-raising visits during November elections to any district whose representative has not backed the bill.”
Hahahahaha...I wonder if they will make him put that in writing...hahahahaha...”DEAL”
Will they ask for this in writing?
Wouldn’t that be a plus...for these morons?
Great minds, etc.
They might actually thank him for not showing up...
Too bad his promises are worthless.
Obama is after the socialist holy grail. Health care.
LOL. That’s what it looks like.
Sort of like when he threatened to withdraw support for Donald Young?
Or is it more like this? “If you’a don’ta vota for me’a, my boys will be in touch. Understand?”
Doesn’t anyone care about Donald Young
That would actually HELP those Democrats!
****he will not campaign for any Democratic****
Dagnabbit! There goes the GOP’s best hope for victory!!!!!
He’s crazy like a fox!
The president will refuse to make fund-raising visits during November elections to any district whose representative has not backed the bill.
Well, that's one way he can help the dems.........
Well well, that gives these guys a great reason to not vote for this bill. This azzwipe Obozo sure has a high opinion of himself.
Are you sure this isn’t satire?
And Senator Coakley can tell you how important his support means. So can Governor Corzine and Governor Deeds.
I imagine quite a few of them are breathing a sigh of relief -
“wow, you mean I won’t have to make up an excuse to keep you from ‘helping’ me?”
Considering his track record with Coakley, Corzine, Deeds, etc...sounds like this bill might fail after all.
Shouldn’t he guarantee he will show and campaign for you if you vote against the bill? That would make some sense.
I keep telling people the reason all of these Dems are resigning is that they don’t want to be associated with Obama because they know they’re going to lose re-election. Obama not campaigning for them is a net positive.
Once again we need a UK paper to give us the truth ...
He’s such an arrogant punk.
Brer Obama and the Briar Patch!
That’s my take.........
Republicans should do to waivering Democrats like they did for Lieberman, offer that they won’t run strong Republican candidates and if the wavering Democrat doesn’t win his own primary, Republicans will support him as an Independent.
In the Scott Brown election Barney Frank said, “why, a vote for Scott Brown means the END of the Obama Agenda” or something like that.
And people listened!
Quick! Spread the word about this announcement: maybe that will swing some of the Dems to a ‘No’ vote!
So, they get to tell their constituents that they voted against a bill that is deeply unpopular, and not only distance themselves from an arrogant president, but have that president do that job for them. What’s the downside?
Good grief. If that doesn't convince people he is out of touch, nothing will. These dems should tell him they're willing to take their chances. Sheesh.
That’s a THREAT?? To whom...the republican challenger??!!

Code Red - House Target List on Health Care
The National Republican Congressional Committee has published a target list on health care. In addition to continuing to contact the five Tennessee Democrat Congressmen, you can go http://www.votervoice.net/link/clickthrough/ext/94697.aspx to contact some of these targets. Much of the talk following Obamas announcement has focused on how to defeat this second bill through reconciliation, but that is misleading because the first step to defeating Obamacare is not by concentrating on defeating the fixer bill but by defeating the Senate bill in the House when it goes to the floor for an up-or-down vote on Thursday, March 18th.

On the Bubble (Major developments from the yes and no columns in the House)
Congressional Dems on Twitter
And here are toll-free numbers we can use to call any Senators or Reps.
At the first number below you must wait through a tape recording urging you to tell your Rep or Senator to vote yes for the health care bill. Just hang on and when the recording is over, you will get the Capitol operator. Just ask for your Rep or Senators office. Then you will either talk to an aid or have the chance to leave a message for him/her to vote NO on the health care bill.
When you use the second number and the Capitol operator comes on, just ask for your Rep or Senators office. Every time I use this number I get the Rep or Senators answer machine, so it may be set up that way all the time...to go to their answer machine. Either way you can leave a message to vote NO on the health care bill!
We need to use these toll free numbers that have been set up for the health care/ BO supporters and illegals to use! After all they are FREE!

“Just don’t throw me in that briar patch”
Could be a Dem in a GOP district is wanting that?
Continuation of Chicago styled thuggery....and the lamestream media just lets this idiot get by with it each and every time.
The Jack Squat idiot is making a mockery of our Constitution, the office of POTUS and commander and chief, and of our nation....and as par, the majority of the lamestream media continues to allow such.
Healthcare fails and Obama becomes neutered.
now the have to vote no.
Does BO realize his “support” is the kiss of death?
“A one-night presidential appearance can bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars...”
The track record says is costs RAT candidates 5-10 points on election day.
Wonderful news! Yep, he is really an intellectual - helping his political enemies:-)
This gets funnier all the time. It reminds me os the Uncle Remus stories. Ol’Brer Rabbit, when stuck to the tar baby, pleaded with Ol’ Brer Fox not to throw him in the briar patch. Which was, of course, exactly what Brer Rabbit wanted to be throw. He could navigate through the briars because he was smaller than Brer Fox.
By the time the elections come round Onada will have made such a pariah of himself that demrats will welome any excuse not be seen with him.
This mean’s the dems do not have the votes and are probably not likely to get constitutionally correct votes.
That is not to say that we can back off the pressure. Got to keep the heel on Onada’s neck.
*O* Coatails are toxic!
visual aid for the younguns
Hmmmm now there’s a threat....
Given that all the candidates that received his support so far have lost, what’s the problem?
Given his status in the polls, that promise should boomerang on him and cause more Dems to vote against the bill!
He should have threatened them WITH support if they voted NO.
What a putz.
Gotta give credit where credit is due...the dims KNOW how to Whip the vote.
Alas, I'm still betting they don't have the votes.
"Threatens?" "Reverse Midas Touch" Obama?
