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.

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.

Too bad the GOP never had this level of determination during tough fights.

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?

LOL.

Clueless English press unfamiliar with the fact that most Americans now despise Obama.

The president will refuse to make fund-raising visits during November elections to any district whose representative has not backed the bill.
Said Democrats: "Whew! Our plan worked!"

That's no threat.

That might help the GOP finally kill this monstrosity.

“Barack Obama has said he will not campaign for any Democratic congressmen who fails to support health care reform.”

Anyone Barry campaigns for is the kiss of death!

Actually, this might be a good thing for the Dems; seems like the candidates that Obama campaigned with recently lost all their elections. Each and every one.
